Moving On

Moving on is hard to do.

But I’m doing it.

One day at a time.

I’m closing on my own home at the end of the month. The 27th to be exact. And taking possession on the 28th. I’m actually quite excited to have a place of my own. I knew the moment I walked in that it was the perfect house for me. It’s an older home (built in 1955) but boy does it have personality! Real wood floors that you can practically see your face in, a kitchen with metal cabinets complete with chrome handles. Reminds me of a ’57 Chevy. A nice big back yard with a covered patio. And it’s quiet. A real writer’s paradise.

The ex left pretty much all the furniture to me. Which I was pretty excited about at first. Until I really started thinking about the furniture that was ours in the home that is going to be mine. And I decided that to truly make the house mine, I would need to get some new stuff.

So I went shopping.

And got a new dresser and single end table that matches the custom bed the ex made for the Sleep Number  bed. Since I can’t afford to buy another one, I’ll stick with this one for awhile. But the dresser and end tables I have now are so old and worn out and don’t match with the color of the bed at all. So I got some new stuff made of pine. One of these days I’ll get a new bed.

I have hated out couches for a long time now. Too big and too fluffy and since we’ve had them for years, they are looking a little shabby. I found an adorable chocolate brown set that is so soft it feels like you’re petting a bunny. I got a couch with two recliners at the ends and a single recliner. I also got an awesome coffee table with the top that lifts up. Perfect for the writer that likes writing whilst sitting on the couch watching Dr. Who and Battlestar Galactica.

One of the splurges I made was to buy a surround sound system. I’ve always wanted one of those. So now I have one.

And last but not least, my sister, mom, and I will be making a trip to the IKEA store in Denver so I can find some new bedding and rugs for the bedroom. I have it all picked out and everything.

I can’t wait to get settled into the new place and make it my own. Part of me feels sad that I don’t a special someone in my life to choose this stuff together but that’s okay. There will be someday. But for now, Dr. Shay is enjoying the anticipation of starting over and finding out what awesome adventures life has on store for me.
