Last night, at 4am, I woke with a start. At least that’s what I’d call it. I sat bolt upright in the bed, rather startled, and I have no idea why. It was very strange, and got my cat’s attention. She was very comforting. I got up, had a bowl of cereal, and went back to bed.
Today I mostly sat around in my pajamas.
Ok, not entirely. I did get dressed to go to Bed Bath and Beyond. You see, I have this condition called boreditus. Yeah, I get tired of things around me. I needed to change something so I got a duvet cover set and now my bed is completely white. It feels very fresh and calming. I’ve wanted an all white bed for a long time, since I was a kid at least. My mom told me no because the cats and the dog would make it dirty since they were always on my bed. I reluctantly accepted it (she was right, they always were on my bed) and somehow stored in my brain that I could never have a white bed. It just recently occurred to me that, duh, well yes, I can have a white bed. Sure the cat gets on it, but she’s a house cat. Its not like she’s going to jump up with muddy paws.
Seriously though, since I moved into this room in December of 2008, I painted and then repainted it within six months. I’ve gone through three sets of curtains, two comforter sets, and now four duvet cover sets. I think I just spend too much time in here and get bored by my surroundings. If I could redecorate the entire house I would be THRILLED. None of it is my taste, its all my grandmother’s stuff, and sometimes it feels really morbid to live around, like we’re living in a time capsule of her life. Its no wonder I get restless and don’t always feel at home here.
I don’t really think that’s what I intended this blog to be about. Actually, I have no idea what it was supposed to be other than a way to post my picture for today. Eight straight days of pictures is better than I’ve ever done in a 365 project, and I haven’t even been outside with the camera yet!
So what do you guys think. If you had the budget, would you redecorate your house? Or is it perfectly you?
