I’ve finished the desk drawers, lined them, and put on the pulls, and while the bird skulls LOOK awesome, there’s something about the curvature of the drawers and the thickness of the wood that makes them cling tight to the face of the drawers, making them difficult to open even when empty–when filled, I imagine it would be near-impossible, so I’ve contacted the seller to return them. Oh well, I suppose I’ll find something I like as much, and in the meanwhile, I’ve got a LOT of other things to do because we got the house! We’ve signed the lease and move in on April 16th. I’m fixing up some furniture in my place to go into what we have deemed to be the “game room” (the most important room of the house for us nerds), and in addition to that, I need to pack up all my crap. I’m excited to be in the new place, but I HATE moving, all of the packing and unpacking and the periods before and after when each place looks like a tornado hit it, and the period toward the end when you think “Ok, I’ve just got one more box to pack” and when you’ve finished packing that box, the amount of crap in your place is somehow exactly the same, and it ends up being another six boxes before all is said and done. Once we’re there, I’m going to get my hands on a cheap old oven to put in the garage and I can FINALLY start monster makeup school, which I am seriously excited about.
I’ve got some things to write about and post here but I’ve been keeping myself so busy that blogging has really taken a back burner. I’m hoping to get on the wagon again soon–I’ve been posting here for just about seven years and it’s not something I want to fall out of the habit of doing entirely.
