I just finished the trim and touch-ups on the purple room.. all that is left is the door frame and possibly the door, oh and we are going to replace the closet doors with mirrored doors. yeay! I can't wait to take all the plastic off the floor and clean out the room so I can see it as it really is. The home gym thing has been moved... I am going to post a "who wants it" on a forum or two so that it doesn't go to waist. Same with the couch and love seat set. But I am thinking of holding off on the couch thing until we get a table or another couch (to replace the other one, yes there are two couches and a love seat involved here). But I really want to be able to move my futon or desk in and right now the loveseat is taking up that space. Made a salad tonight and made my own dressing... thanks MOM! =D Called her the other day for tips on that. Also cleaned out my car tonight as well. Now I just have to go through all the crap that I brought into the house. I have this thing against throwing away information so I have lots of little pieces of paper with random bits of information on them. I have decided to start a database on my laptop (got a laptop! did I tell ya that?) that way I won't lose the info and I won't have to keep all those old pieces of paper. Well, lots more to do.. I need to work on my German homework but its time for bed... I have chorus tomorrow night so it will be a late late night. bye =)

one step closer

I met the folks today. Well, I had met them before today but today I spent time with Chris's Mom, Dad, Aunt, Uncles, Grandmother, and Grandfather. It was a family gathering for his mom's birthday. I talked with his mom about singing groups ... she seems to like Motown and Elvis... I tried to explain about the barbershop that I sing but women singing barbershop was alien to her as I find it is with most people. I talked to his dad about religious people and the reason why he liked Vegas so much more than Illinois where he is from. Turns out his moms birthday is the day before mine and he is going to IL to visit her this year for her birthday. Chris's Aunt Sue is pretty fun. You can tell she is the type to highlight her good moods in a social situation. Her house was filled with all the beautiful pictures that she has taken over the years. At one point there was a discussion about a disease that birds carry and how it might infect and kill people. It was rather funny. About three times I was about to mention something that would have mentioned my moving into the house but I had to restrain myself because Chris has not told his parents yet. He later said he would tell his mother next time he saw her... hard to explain that but I do think its better that they met me before they found out I was moving in so they wouldn't meet me as that girl thats moving in... you know... preconcieved notions and all. Well, thats the major news of today... more stuff later.

unwanted alarm experience

ok so I am freakin tired and annoyed. The fire alarms in Chris' house have been beeping at me since 5am. I tried to sleep through them but every couple of minutes or so "chirp!" and it is just outside of Chris' range so he has been sleeping just fine. This was supposed to be my sleep in relax day and now I don't have any more time for sleep and that freaking alarm is still chirping at me. They are too high for me to reach and I dont know if he has a latter to reach the ceiling in the living room (vaulted) and the chirping keeps rotating through the different alarms. I was actually fine until the one in the bedroom started this morning. Now I don't know what to do. I need sleep... I have been in bed too long... I don't have anywhere to go to actually get sleep at this point and I still have to go shopping for a birthday present and show up to a house warming party and a birthday party. I would also like to finish the final details on the purple room so we can start on getting rid of the yellow one. Oh and my lower right molar has been hurting me recently. Its the tooth I had filled a little while ago. The dentist kept on having to drill deeper and deeper and now I wonder if I actually needed a root canal. Never had one so I don't know if my tooth is showing those symptoms or not. Another part of me hopes that it is just my tooth settling into the filling or whatever. Even though its like 6 months later practically. "Chirp!" grrr... now I am jealous of Chris and his ears' selective hearing. I guess everything holds plusses and minuses I just want to be able to sleep like a normal person... I feel like I am in some weird science experiment or something: Just how much can she take? Sleep deprevation mixed with abusive noises, News at 11. I feel like crying or hitting something or I don't know as long as it give me a cool dark soft place to sleep. I think I should start a list of unfavorable thing... starting with the sound and location of dieing fire alarms.
