RAIN RAIN RAIN... That's all it ever does. Rain.
No, I'm not in Seattle. I'm in good old wet, soggy, humid, muggy Louisiana. Thanks goodness I live on a hill. That is vital to people buying property in this state. Aim high. If you buy low, you'll get flooded. We are below sea level.
I've been cleaning my bedroom today. I've lost all respect for myself. I found a dust bunny that had teeth. I dusted the blinds, I swept the walls and the ceiling. I got an entire large trash bag full of shit I don't really need or want out of my room so far, and I'm not done yet. I'm tempted to throw away everything but my bed and my pc. I am getting rid of my bedroom furniture. I have a new plan.
I'm going to maximize the space in this room by converting my closets into a recessed shelved area for all my electronics. I'm having a desk built into one side and that will contain the pc, power supply, all the cords and cables, my books, my office stuff. The other side will hold the TV, VCR, Cable box, stereo equipment. I'm going to put a curtain rod across each closet opening and make it pretty and closeable. No more ugly louvred doors. I hate those things.
You might wonder what the heck I'm going to do with my clothes and shoes. And to this I say "BAH! I'm becoming a nudist!"
Well, maybe not.
Actually, I am going to buy an old fashioned wardrobe. (maybe an antique, if not, then a reproduction) It will have a bar for hanging clothes and some drawers for my drawz. I shall place that where my long dresser is and get rid of the dresser altogether. I do believe my granny's house contains a wardrobe or two that I might be able to get for free. She has passed away and no one lives there. Instead of the dresser, I think I'll get a smallish chest, maybe a bombay chest, and place a big mirror above it. This will take up less space than the dresser does. Over all, I'll save a lot of room because a lot of things I have out in my floor space will be inside the closets and what will be out on the floor is my bed, a small night table or two, a wardrobe, and one small chest. The desk will be gone and all the electronics will be out of sight.
I've got to stop keeping everything. Why do I keep buying stuff?? What the hell is wrong with me? This room is going to be a relaxing freakin retreat if it's the last thing I do. (I hope it's NOT the last thing I do.)
