The rug saga: Love the big circles rug we put in the dining area.
And was totally happy with the smaller zigzag-y one in the living area.
But then when the two long runners came, I didn't even open them up to see what they looked like.
Suddenly I realized that I had two rugs I couldn't use anywhere. So I started trying to imagine a place to put them...eventually (soon if I have my way) we plan to rip up the beige carpets in the bedrooms and replace them with the white Pergo I have in my studio which is impervious to everything dog. In my imagination I thought they could go bedside, so when one gets out of bed one has a nice soft rug to stand on. Blech. Not thrilled with that idea. Back online to Overstock and lo and behold this rug was on superdupersale.

OK I have it all figgert out now. I am returning the long runners. I have ordered this rug to go in the living area, and will put the one that is currently there in Dave's room since he has a big open space and needs a soft rug (to fall out of bed onto, his latest nighttime adventure).Now I am happy. Again. It don't take much.
OK. Next! My friend Mary and I are on the same page, Decorating. So off to Homegoods, TJMaxx and Marshall's we went. I found two different bedside chests, and brought them home, and kept one and returned the other (no picture was ever taken of that one, no loss) the next day. Then went to my other TJMaxx and found the second exact same Lane chest. I love these small but efficient chests. Hated the handles.
So off to Lowe's to replace them. I had only one choice, but they worked.
So the rest of the drawers got filled with ten pairs of shoes! This makes lots more room in my closet.
I am so proud of myself that I actually deleted all the online shopping carts full of sale yarn that I have been saving.
We woke up to 0 degrees today.
I want my money back. The South is supposed to be warmer. Grumph.
