This week its all about the laundry rooms. Not for any particular reason except that I realized that I have several photos of some really great laundry rooms. Did you ever think that laundry rooms would be a decorating opportunity? Well, now they are, apparently! Of course, mine is still a cinder blocked corner of the basement, but a girl can dream....
Love this one...I love just about any "before & after" decorating project in a magazine...it makes me feel like "I really could do that!". Of course, they do have an entire staff & I have...myself (well, Glenn helps sometimes).
If I sound a little cynical in this post, its probably because I've had a big letdown today. We were supposed to be leavin' on a jet plane tonight for a 4 day weekend in Boston, visiting my sister & brother in law. 2 of my favorite people in one of my favorite places. But, SIGH, Glenn has come down with one of the nastiest nasties of sickies in the past 24 hours & we aren't going anywhere. Of course, I feel badly for Glenn, who is miserable. But, I'm so bummed about not going away. As you might have gathered from my posts, I've had a rough past few months with my return to work. Overwhelmed with life, really (what? who? me? Uh Huh). I *need* 4 days with NO responsibilities. I decided to take off tomorrow anyway, even though we aren't going anywhere. If I don't take this time, I'm going to lose it one day & just up & quit my job, which probably wouldn't be a good idea. So, I'll be doing projects around here.
OK, I've had a smallish obsession with music recently. I keep discovering all of these songs that I *LOVE*...songs that have been around for several years & bands that have been around. And, I've apparently been living under a rock. For instance, I've just downloaded "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 & am currently listening to it for the 4th time in a row (obviously, I'm the only one in the room, or Glenn might throw something at me). I LOVE this song. And, where have I been????? Maroon 5 is awesome! I had heard of them, but, for some reason, thought that they were some kind of cheezy R&B/"smooth jazz" kind of band. I'm tellin' you, I've been living under a rock. And, Kelly Clarkson's "Walk Away"? That was my song last week. I played it incessantly. I get what Glenn & I call "boogie butt" (definition: the way people start to bounce & sway in their seat when a song comes on that they like) every time it comes on. I had thought that Kelly Clarkson just sang things like "A Moment Like This". When I found out she sang "Walk Away", I thought, "this girl rocks! She has serious attitude!". I know, where have I been? Under a rock.
I'm going to go now & listen to "Sunday Morning" for a 5th time....
