Oh happy day.

Guess what came today??

Yes!
My bedroom is finally furnished!

And even better-- I like the furniture! :)

I was so excited at the prospect of having actual drawers to put my clothes in that I didn't care that the delivery "window" I was given was from 7am-noon.

I think that's more like a door than a window, but whatever.

We had mucho trouble getting this furniture ordered and sent to us, and I have to tell you that I was a little worried that I might not even like it when it arrived.
I mean, it's been over 3 months since I'd last seen it, and what if my memory was playing tricks on me and it wasn't all I thought it to be?

I feared for my life if that was the case, because I think Josh would have killed me.

Literally.
I think he would have killed me.

I wanted to wait and post pictures after I got things hung on the walls, maybe put some curtains up, had actual pictures in the frames, you know.
But I'm not very patient, so I'll just show it to you as-is.

Here's my new bedroom...







Doesn't the bed look inviting?
Makes me want to take a leisurely bath, light a few candles, and cozy up in my fresh bed with...



My book.

What did you think I was going to say?

Well you'd have been right.
I want to cozy up with my man.

However, he is currently out of town. state. country. continent. hemisphere.
And that poses a slight problem with cuddles.

But he wont be gone too long, and I will keep the bed warm for him.
Just me and my book.

News of the embarrassing: I took a Zumba class at the gym this evening.

For you who don't know, this is a class in which you exercise by means of dancing.
Aaaaaaaaaand I can't dance.

But it was kinda fun anyway.
And I'm realizing that the older I get, the less I care about what other people think of me.

I mean, after going through childbirth, every shred of dignity I ever had has been stripped away anyway.

But I'm still glad there wasn't a camera there tonight.


And now I will leave you with this Alex-ism from tonight:

Me: Alex, it's time for bed. Please go potty, get jammies on, and brush your teeth.

Alex: (hands on hips, pout on lips) Why do I have to do all the work around here?

Sheesh.
Kids these days.
Does she expect me to pee for her, too?

A direct quote: "what has my life become that all I can converse about is the bathroom habits of my children."

You did it again;)

Very nice furniture. I would have gone "missing" if I had changed my mind too.
