ikea, i want to have your babies

Look at my new bed! It was sooo cheap! And the end-tables were only $12 each! I think IKEA is one of the best places, for when you are poor, to save up and buy things. We can sit up in bed now and lean back to prop up our pillows. And they don't fall on the floor between the bed and the wall. But we have to be careful about our toes, we are not used to the sides and footboard. Miles and Miyo have both hurt their shins on it, and Shene ripped off one of her toes (almost). Shene put together the bed while Ben was at work. Even if he was home, she would have done it. For some reason she enjoys hard work. She picked out the blanket and curtains and brought them to me because she found them on clearance. She was sick of the old room being so ugly. She said we needed to paint, I said I didn't want to do the work. She cut in and I rolled-thank goodness she forced me, I love my bedroom now.
Shene helped me hang curtains in the dining room and gave me a bench that she no longer uses to but under it as a seat. I love how comfy the dining room looks now, instead of barren and cold.
I was borrowing curtains from Lisa for the living room, but I gave them back and got several panels from IKEA to hang in the living room. They were cheaper than usual, but still not as cheap as I would have liked for IKEA. The cheaper curtains were all light colors and I needed something dark. I love how you can still see light through them. If it is too sunny, you still have light to see without the heat. And at night they are solid looking and not see through. Again, Shene hung them because she is addicted to physical labor that helps others

I am taking fabric that someone gave me that used to be curtains and making a window seat cushion and pillow cushion for a back rest. I am excited.

Don't you dare leave me for a Swede! They are the lowest of the low in Scandinavia. But, at least they aren't the English. Supid Brits and the sun never setting on them. Makes me sick.


P.S. Just checking to see if Anna is still reading.

I was wondering why all of a sudden such a vulgar distaste for Swedish people. It was just a test of the emergency discrimination system. BTW your stuff looks awesome!

Sheneybean said...

Just kidding. Just because Norway is totally worthless and I hate it doesn't mean that you are...does it? lol
