Froze Toze….um, toes

I truly enjoy colder weather. My joints do not. Not only are my feet perpetually cold–despite wearing two hefty pairs of socks–but my joints hurt like heck. I would venture so far even to say that they hurt like hell, but I would really hate to offend anyone by using that word. Ha.

Moving furniture around the living room all night last night didn’t help, that’s for sure. We were trying out a new layout for the living/family room that we ended up liking a lot. Which is surprising because usually my husband’s ideas about this kind of stuff do not appeal to me. He complains that I want to overpersonalize the house. Well, we live here, don’t we? Why wouldn’t we want it personalized? Then he pulls out the Asian-Jewish-italian-Any Mother Guilt Trip, “what if I died and you had to sell the house right away?” Argh.

We ended up moving our gargantuan twenty year old sectional to create a cave of sorts, where the area to watch telly is very defined and not as likely to end up cluttered with kids’ crap. This in turn created another hallway-like area that improves the flow in the room by….well, it improves it.

Sometimes I curse HGTV and DIY.

    You haven’t completely bought into HGTV until you paint a room completely Red.
