Sleepless

New console table in living/dining area of my apartment. The homemade cedar chest that Mark made in high school (that I love) went back to it's rightful owner.
New SMALL desk in my bedroom. Geez, in this picture, it looks messy, though I didn't think it was when I took it.

So, this is what fifty looks like. I can't say I'm impressed, but it is what it is. No wonder my mother had face lifts. Gah.


The pie safe that I wanted back in my apartment, instead of at Marks. This is what prompted the weekend of moving furniture up and down the hallway. It was made for me by someone that used to love me.Patty cake...grandma in her slippers and Brodie with no shoes...
I am passing a law that there can be no more months that begin on Monday. By the time I dragged my tired, old butt into this apartment last night, I could have cried. I was so tired that I made some coffee to help me to stay awake all evening, I did not want to go to sleep at five, for heavens sake. It worked. ALL NIGHT LONG. So, yea...today will be even better. Little sleep and I get to close the month of February at work today. Look out General Motors, it will be any one's guess what will be on my financial statement this month...
Happy Tuesday. :)

I love the new furniture and that pie safe is gorgeous. It looks like it was lovingly made.

I think 50 looks absolutely beautiful on you. And you have leopard print PJs - I LOVE THAT about you!

Fiwa is right....50 does look beautiful on you. And girl....you have the most gorgeous eyes...I suppose you've heard that all your life...but its true. I love the furniture and the computer desk is great....but if you want to see messy, you ought to see MY desk......or not. Enjoy your favorite day, dear friend.

I love this photo of you - Absolutely Fine at Fifty! :-) The pie safe is gorgeous too. And yes, months starting on Monday should be illegal. Crazy at our place too, but we survived, just as we always do!

The pie safe is gorgeous! I am envious you can still sit like that :-) My knees and hips don't like sitting like that any more.

You look great, and sure as hell don't need any kind of face lift at all!

Brodie will keep you young too!

Cheryl said...

I love the new furniture!

Truthfully, I've never seen a picture of you in which you didn't look great. Really truly. And, I'm older that you!
