Just Breathe

Greetings from Austin! This past week has been a whirlwind of packing, moving, unpacking, shopping, building, organizing, and i'm still SO far from being finished. First off, my living room is tres incomplete as i do not yet have a couch. West elm is supposed to be delivering tomorrow, but they never called to give me a time, and i have a pretty busy day full of, yuck, class. I also don't yet have a rug for the living room (leopard has gone in the entry way), but i think i found a fairly inexpensive one from west elm as well to order. Bedroom is a complete disaster, minus my beautiful four poster bed. Have bought pots of paint for the boudoir and am pretty much decided on my pink living room accent wall. Wish that i could just hire painters and people to assemble my furniture, but alas i am still a student and currently quite poor. Mom had yet another meltdown RE: me and my money spending. This one was extreme and almost destroyed all sense of emotional stability that i've gained over the past year. Luckily, she left and i realized that as much as i love my mother, our relationship will continue to suffer until i earn my own income and prove to her that i can live on my own. Sigh.

The weather here has been GORGEOUS, and i'm loving Austin more than ever. Am beyond excited that i will be here for at least the next couple of years. Hope the new year has been going well for you. Have a couple of resolutions in my bed, but have yet to sit down and really spend time reflecting on 2007 and creating goals and action plans for 2008. Considering i'm about to embark on a 17-hour, 7-class semester... i'm not quite sure when that will happen. But i guarantee you i will find the time. ;-)

Happy New Year Carolyn! I was just at Pier 1 Imports and they had a TON of rugs marked down in preparation for their new shipment. You should definitely check it out! Happy shopping.
