I know you understand what I mean by that.
Contrary to what my husband believes, I was NOT sitting on my "couch nest" all day nibbling on crunchy snacks.
I was rearranging, fluffing,filing (and making a dozen or more holes in the drywall that I'm trying to hide from my "hammer boss").
|All this was Yard Sale/Goodwill finds|
I knew I had to break away from the computer- and all those usual daily chores- to actually switch things up a bit- decoratively speaking.
And I might not have gotten up the energy at all, except for one fact:
My husband thinks we're midgets.

I let it go. It wasn't worth fighting about.
I just felt so blessed that the TV wasn't still leaning up against the bed in my daughter's old room.
But yesterday, I had to do something.
That wall looked so bare!
So, I found a couple of frames in my

I've still got to be on the lookout for a console, table, or other flea market piece of furniture to place under it to hide the cords and hold the DVD player and such.
I'm sure I'll come across something at Goodwill.
Or at the midget furniture store...
