Yep! I got my own digs! Now, it's not spectacular, needs a bunch of paint, carpets are blue, but guess what, it's mine, all mine! No more tip toeing around my mother not knowing if she'll blow up at me for breathing wrong, no more being stuck in my room, and I *finally* have a permanent spot for my sewing machine! Oh I'm so stoked you have no idea!
This is the first apartment I've had on my own. I've never lived alone, I moved straight in with my ex husband at 18 from my parents house. It scares me to death but guess what, I have NO one to answer to, no one to consult about decorating issues, and no one to share with. I also don't have to worry about my food being eaten. I can't wait to get all my stuff in and show y'all pictures!
Oh and things I've learned so far:
-People are lazy morons to not take outlet covers and switch plates off when they paint.
-People are lazy morons who don't remove old caulk before putting down new stuff.
-People are cheap lazy morons who use flat paint in the kitchen. Behind the stove.
-People are lazy slobs when they don't clean the carpets.
-People are lazy slobs when they don't vacuum said carpets.
I started painting the dining/sewing room today, it's a gorgeous color! It's taking more than I expected but that's because the paint that was on the walls was flat and is sucking up the paint. I cleaned the walls VERY well but that's whatcha get for putting eggshell over a flat I suppose.
