We're FINALLY getting a new bed! With a frame! All courtesy of my mother-in-law (she's the sweetest). It's scheduled to be delivered this Thursday. I can't wait to go to bed Thursday night! (hehe) Our old bed, is, well, old. It's a queen-sized bed that sags all over. When you move it moves with you. My husband had it way before we got married five years ago and we never got around to replacing it. The new bed on the other hand is a firm KING.

Everywhere I look in my house I see things that need changing. The new bed will be screaming for a bedroom set and I don't blame it. There are a lot of mix-matched pieces in my bedroom. We'll need new sheets too of course, but Macy's is having a sale (as usual) starting Thursday so you know that's where I'll be Thursday evening after work. The television in our room is small but it still takes up too much space. A flat-panel LCD hanging on the wall would be much more efficient. As for the nest of cables behind the television in the living room - what can I say about that except that it needs to go. A proper wall unit is in order. Then I'll have somewhere to store my CDs instead of in my bedside table. But the wall unit will have to come after we repaint the living room. I have a red couch (sort of the color of ketchup) so I have to find something that will complement it.
My mother spoke to one of my uncles last week and he told her that he had just come back from vacation. When she asked him if he came to Florida he said no, Vancouver. I don't know if he meant to say it or if it slipped out before he realized what he was telling her, but we all know that's where my father is. He admitted to seeing him and he apparently told him that he has a grandson, for which my father was supposedly excited. I couldn't bring myself to call my uncle and ask him my questions myself so I emailed him instead. We'll see if he responds.

Congrats on the new bed. That is something I can always splurge on. I would rather have a crappy dresser and TV, but a big beautiful bed.

Your dad lives in Vancouver? I'm from Vancouver, I probably know him. Lol. Black community is microscopic out that way. Hopefully your uncle tells you news that doesn't upset you.

I wish I would have painted my living room before I got my wall unit. Now the thought of painting just irritates the heck out of me.

Hope you get nothing but good news from your uncle.

Wow, that's interesting. I saw that uncle this past weekend and though they said they'd been in Vancouver...he didn't mention anything about that..their son lives there and they just told me about seeing him.

Well I certainly hope he responds to you...the lack of communication must be terribly frustrating.

Hurray on the new bed! I'm sure you'll get around to all of the other things eventually.

I hope you hear from your uncle.

I hope your uncle shares something that good with you.

Congrats on the bed.

Congrats on the bed. I need one. Hopefully I can get that done today since the cat killed the mattress.

Good choice on the King size. You need your space (well I do) when sleeping ;-)

i bought some 600 count cotton sheets and i like them - i feel the difference - but i don't like that 100% cotton wrinkles so much (even after being folded straight outta the dryer).

Good that you got a new bed, now sleeping will be much more comfortable. It takes money to make you place look good, bu I guess if you do it a bit at a time you will get there.
