I picked up my keys today. Took Mom to see the place. God lord, she's gone off the Decorating Deep End. |
I'll be frank. The place is old. It's a little on the "used" side. But it's got potential. And some neat quirks. Did I mention the bathroom?
So, here's the bathroom. Tonight, my mother bought a few things that I said I wanted. I'm putting Ivy garlands around the edge and three of the corners will have candles and stones on them. I got a basket to keep my shampoo and such in, and I'm looking for one of those little towel holder things to stand next to it.
Here's the view from the other side. Notice how my bathtub are and my bedroom are pretty much one room? I have this tendency to find places with wierd quirks like that. My old house had a master bedroom that used to be a carport. It had a window looking into the living room. We had a bit of an issue with remote controls...
Totally digging on the fireplace. That's solid rock. Notice the little light up above there in the beam? There are 4 of them. They aren't too terribly bright. Nice low light. I like it.
This is the long view of the living room. I like the wood floors. The only places with carpet are the bedrooms. Makes it easy to clean up after the kids snacking on popcorn while watching a movie!
It took me a while to figure out what this thing was. It's a stereo cabinet. Thing is, the wires in it, go to speakers throughout the house. I'm unsure of if they work or not. I don't even really have a "stereo" to connect to it. I'm thinking I can do something nifty with it, though.
So, there you go. A few shots of the new place. It's old. It's got dents. Needs work. But it's mine. All my own.
I did get a brief moment of "fuck" tonight. I took my mom out to see the place and I realized...I'm really out in the quiet "country". On the one hand, I love it. You can see the stars. On the other hand, I got the heebie jeebies. I've never lived alone. Ever. I have woods behind me and a broken down wooden shack "to be renovated" on one side. Kinda gives you that creepy "I saw this in a horror movie once..." feeling.
Some of you might want to expect a few phone calls from me saying "Please tell me there's no boogey man!"
So, to recap...Lots of potential. Lots of excitement. A sense of freedom. A mild amount of panic. But I think we're going to be okay.
