Do you ever have those days when you have tons of great ideas for blog posts, but when you sit down to actually write them, they’ve escaped your brain? I’ll think up brilliant posts as I’m falling asleep, or random times during the day – when I don’t have anything with me or handy to write them down. This is one of those days. I really should start carrying.
Sunday I was ambitious and decided to rearrange the living room furniture. Part of that was instigated by a great deal on a new TV stand from Target since the new TV hubby got us last Christmas-ish has been hanging out on a small glass-top bar table that was supposed to be temporary, but was beginning to look permanent. And not cool. So I turned this:
It was a pain in the you-know-what, mostly because the instructions clearly stated not to use my electric drill to put it together. And they had the instructions marked incorrect – parts B and C were switched (the two sections that are the ‘walls’ on either side of the middle open section) so when I got it all put together, the holes didn’t line up for the shelves on the ends. Luckily I’m resourceful, so I was able to switch them without taking the whole thing apart.
We still need to get rid of the old TV (that still works, but we haven’t used it since we got the new one), it just sits silently nearby in the ugly old wall unit that’s seen better days in the 11 years since it was purchased. Meanwhile it still holds all our games and movies until I figure out how to organize them effectively.
Random Conversation with the Princess Nagger:
PN: “Guess what?”
PN: “I saw Zelda outside and guess what I caught her doing?” (Zelda is our tortoise calico cat who is strictly an indoor cat that has no claws. She likes to escape at every opportunity and go fishing at the pond).
PN: “She was trying to eat a mouse!”
PN: “I know, right? I think she has great internal instincts!”
Me: “INTERNAL instincts?”
PN: “Yeah, you know, she just KNOWS when there’s going to be a mouse around so she escapes from the house just to catch it!”
Me: “INTERNAL instincts?”
PN: “Oh whatever!!“
That’s it for this weeks’ randomness – feel free to link up and do the random thing – be sure to visit the fellow rebelers and see what’s rattling around in their random brains. Sorry I’ve been a sucky hostess and haven’t gotten around as regularly as I should – I’ll try to get around better. You know what I mean. Rebel on!
Don’t forget to leave a comment when you link up, it’s the polite thing to do!
We’re still rebelling while Keely is still hiatus-ing (and maybe, just maybe she might be making an illustrious return soon), if you have a smorgasbord in your brain and want to let it out, c’mon and join in the fun! Rebel On!
(Right-click is working again! Now your life will be easier. I’m just sayin’.)
Once again I’m hopping aboard this fun friendly train – if you’re traveling on the train, be sure to leave your link so I can follow you back!
And here’s another fun one, Tiggerific Tuesday! Blog Hop…or Bounce!
