Overall, today was a fairly good day. Here are a few of the things that happened:
1. JUSTIN IS NOT GOING TO WASHINGTON THIS MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is possible that he will go eventually, but not this month. Which means that we WILL be going to see Dun-HAM, and there should be no house closing issues. I also don't have to stay alone in this dreadful complex.
2. I picked up TWO bookshelves, and some curtains for less than $60 today. Granted, they were your cheapo no assembly required bookshelves from Target, but they were in espresso finish, and we have a TON of books. For as many books as we have, there's no need to be picky. I'm actually thinking about going back and getting a few more of the bookshelves. There's this one wall leading out to the garage that's sort of un-used space because it's in the line of traffic of the room. I'm thinking about lining that wall with 3-shelf bookshelves. It would also give some nice shelf space to display a few pictures/candle holders/etc. My other option would be to do the two bookshelves on either side of the couch, almost like high end tables. We'll see. I also got some cheapo curtains. They probably aren't the curtains that I'll end up with, but considering the house has NO window coverings, I'm sure they'll be used somewhere. I'm gonna try and make up a mood board of the living room. We'll see.
3. We voted! However, I'm much more tempted to go read some more of the next Twilight book than watch the election coverage. In high school, I was VERY political. I participated in campaigns, protests, the whole bit. Even in college, I was pretty damn informed. However, politics get me very worked up. It's like a car accident--I just can't look away! This year, without TV, I feel so much less devoted to the election. Don't get me wrong--I'm not uninformed--I'm just able to go find out about candidates on my own terms without hearing all the mud-slinging that ticks me off so much.
4. My bro got honorable mention for first team in football! I am so proud of him--from what I hear he's been a pretty damn hard worker for football this year, and it's paying off. It's been so fun to watch him play!
