Camping in my own bedroom

**LOL** Last night was my first night since the fire that I actually got to sleep in my own bedroom. The carpet was finished Friday, but it was full of fuzzies and it wasn't until Saturday that I got it cleaned up enough to sleep on. Which required fixing my vacuum first since the ex failed to mention the belt was broken and the air line clogged.

But anyway, so last night I ran out and picked up an air mattress. To hell with this couch shiznit! I want even some vague concept of privacy and comfort again!

So there I am, in a pretty empty room, snuggled on my air mattress with my blankets and one pillow I was using on the couch. I had my Mag-Lite for short-term light between the switch and the bed since I don't have a table lamp ... or a table. And I was freezing my arse off because the thermostat was turned down and so far away now. **LOL**

It was just like camping!

But as I look around my empty room now, I just can't picture bothering with a queen-sized bed now. I mean I'm the only one in it. It seems way bigger than I need. I'm thinking maybe a futon or something. Maybe set up my computer in the bedroom, using the futon as the seat in front of the desk. And then when I want to go to bed, I can just kick it back and go to sleep. Of course I'd only be using half of my room then. I'm not sure what to do with the other half. Ah well. All that I know is that I'm tired of making space for two. For once, I want to do things the way I want them.

Isn't that feeling a fun one? Things the way YOU want them?

I adore that feeling

Yeah. Now if only I had the money to, you know, decorate even in the slightest. **LOL** What money I had just went into computer parts. So until the insurance gives me money to replace my bed, TV, yada yada, I'm stuck with extreme spartan decor. He he he.

But yeah, it's weird, thinking in terms of just me again. But it's nice, because this way I always get what I want.

If I want to run wires along the ceiling for surround sound, I CAN! If I want to actually have closet space, I can! Man, that'll be nice. There were times I was afraid the ex's clothes would multiply like the blob and eat me. Now I'll actually have room for my own stuff.

Of course, once I have the house to myself, I'm going to have waaaay more room than I know what to do with. I'm still not sure if I want to sell or stay. For some reason it's a really tough decision.

vrec I watch all those remodeling shows and stuff. You need color! You need to think about how you want to feel when you walk in that room. Not function but the whole experience of it. Gems can be found in junk and made into really awesome treasure. Need help just ask. NOt that I am that far away. LOL Friends helping friends. Pass it forward is my motto!
