My Sailor likes it because it means I have to keep Clydas off the bed. But I'm getting Clydas his own comfy places today. Hopefully he'll like them more than than the bed to help keep the transition easy. Just have to get a black blanket to go with it and I'm all set! My Sailor is on painting duty on arrival, so we'll work out what to paint the rooms when we get a chance. I'm thinking, for this room... maybe a solid color accent wall behind the bed with the black pattern continuing? Any suggestions from out there in the blogosphere?
I'm also working on getting Clydas a dog bed. More on that later, but it's been quite the journey! Do I go cushy or supportive? Round or square? Bolstered? Pillowed? Ah! Too many options! (The saner side of me finds it incredible that I'm being so indecisive about a DOG BED. I mean, the dog sleeps on my terry cloth robe if I leave it on the floor. I doubt he'll be as picky as I am FOR him.) I'm looking to get 2 - one for the bedroom (warm and snuggly one) and one for the living room near the fireplace (more supportive probably). Does that sound cozy or what?
My Sailor is picking me up a work desk before he comes over. YEAH! An actual desk! I work off a large folding table right now. It works great for the space I currently have in my bedroom, but I can't wait to have an actual office space in the next place. Yeah!
I am looking forward more and more to getting moved in and set up. Then I can spend time on weekends doing my crafty stuff. I can find a yoga studio to get out and meet some like minded folks. I can try new places and pick my local haunts and all that jazz.
All in all, I feel the timing is right for this. It's what I needed...
And not a minute too soon.
