Add to it my kids were home sick Monday & Tuesday and then my son was home again on Friday. This was a very long week capped off with my daughters first middle school dance and meeting up with the kids friends for a glow in the dark nerf gun game!
I had big plans to sit and write this fabulous post on the books I have been escaping into, but instead I decided to re arrange my living room/dining room. It started as I want to put the Christmas tree in this spot this year, but reality is I wanted to move my recliner back by the picture windows. I had my chair here when I first moved into this house, but decided to move it so I couldn't be seen if someone came knocking at the front door. By someone, I mean my ex-boyfriend. Now, well I am plenty comfortable sitting in my chair & ignoring the front door all together.
I also had a project of personal files, divorce files, the kids school files in a corner hidden by my recliner. I have allowed them to sit there in my daily damn view for 2 years. Today I decided they could live down in the storage area in the basement until I find the energy and where with all to tackle that project. By moving that huge pile of stress and unresolved business out of my sight, I can now sit in my recliner and see people & cars pass by. In two months, I will move my big ass Christmas tree right in front of my recliner & spend the best month ever rocking & watching my twinkly lights!!
It is very selfish, but I have just claimed the best spot in the whole house as my own.
I also picked a spot for my recliner that doesn't have a single electrical outlet in hopes of everyone staying out of my chair.
