B being the cat and me being that mouse.
Bwaaa haaa haaa (evil laugh).
B is away, starting this afternoon, at a conference. It'll be over on Saturday afternoon.
This means just one thing: Wife redecorate time.
It shouldn't come as a big surprise. The house is in chaos mode right now anyway, with 50 billion projects halfway (or less) through completion. The final goal? A better functioning household. But right now--- chaos.
But of course, since he's not actually going to be here during a chunk of it, this means tabula rasa for me. We've talked about the big stuff, so at least he won't be surprised to see every piece of furniture moved around. But the little things... well, here's hoping it all goes off without a hitch.
I'd put up "before" pictures, but, quite frankly, I'm ashamed of them. I figure things will be much better if I have lovely "after" pictures to accompany the heinous "befores". Ok, not heinous... just unorganized. It also doesn't help that I took the photos after I had been in destructo mode, so the "before" photos are truly ghastly in their unorganization.
In other news.... I'm applying for another job, and I'm pulling out all the stops. Here's hoping. Please send some karma my way. I really want it. If it doesn't happen, it doesn't, but dang, it would be awesome.
