I usually try to have a theme to my entry, a purpose. I haven't done one of my "Robbie's Ramblings" entries in a while. I do these when I have a bunch of little snippets that don't really amount to much at all. I guess they could be journal entries in their own right but they got lost along the way. So, I try to gather all the pieces of my life and fit them neatly in one entry, one long entry. Sorry.
I've been meaning to post a pic of my new bed for a while now. I think that I've been too enamored with it to share. It's kind of like when you find a great restaurant and you don't want to tell anyone for fear it will ruin the special feeling that it gives you. I love my bed. This is the first brand new, out of the plastic wrap, bed that I have purchased. The one I had before this was a sagging single bed that was given to me when I moved to California. Prior to that, I had a king size bed that was a hand-me-down from my mom. I don't know what makes this bed feel so good, it may be the pillowtop mattress or the bedding itself. I bought all new stuff for it, even pillows. The white and blue print items are actually from my old bed. I like the pattern and I am having trouble departing with it so I thought it would make a nice accent for the sea of blue. The new comforter is a chambray so it is ultra soft and the sheets are absolute heaven. I never understood the whole thread-count schpeel. Now, I understand. These are three or four hundred count and they are the most luxurious I have felt caress my skin. I think the thrill of comfort is even more intense because I bought the mattress pad, sheet set, four pillows, pillow shams, bedskirt and comforter for under two hundred dollars. Bargain shopping at its finest! And, oh it feels so, so good.
The bed pic looks pretty bland but that's because my apartment is a work in progress. I still need to buy a headboard thingy for my bed. I call it a thingy because if I called it a frame, it doesn't sound quite right. It's on a frame. But, I want to get a headboard/footboard thingy to go along with it. All this "technical talk," you couldn't tell I actually work in the interior design industry. But then again, I still call a sofa a couch and get corrected on that one all the time. I'm still working on my desk so as you can see in the picture my computer set up is on a decorative barrel that I have and my printer sits on the floor. Since I have no real furniture in my livingroom yet, I have my television in my bedroom on a metal outdoor table. I have pictures galore that would make the place look much better. But, until I buy the main furniture pieces, I don't want to hang anything because I don't want to have to move it if I place it wrong for the pieces that I will buy. So, they are all piled against a wall in my livingroom waiting for a home.
I'm sure that this is getting old for all of you. I actually thought about not posting this part but my journal is partially a record of my memories and also a way of letting people, like my brother, know what is going on. So, you'll have to bear with me one more time while I mention that I am being highlighted - again. This time it's on the MusicTalk page for my entry called "Music, Marriage, and Mommies." But, I like these kinds of highlights because they aren't all about me. If you look just below my pic, there is my dear journaling bud, Babyshark.
Now, excuse me while I go eat my hair. Woops, I mean wash it. I put a deep conditioner by Burt's Bees on it and it smells so fricken good. Good enough to eat. It's killing me since I haven't had breakfast yet.
