- Denver, Colorado, United States
- i'm 33. i live with my husband, baby daughter 2 dogs and 1 kitty. i'm a chemical engineer with an MBA and work in technical sales. i tend to bite off more than i *think* i can chew and end up with a full bulging mouth for awhile before i can finally swallow. i thrive in chaos, but strive for order.
and in other news, sonic the hedgehog ended up coming home with me last night and is no doubt snoozing the day away.
and since i know you're all dying to see my new curtains. here's a picture of one of the sides i've sewn so far.
the new color scheme for my living room is going to be chocolate brown and turquoise. because i just love that color combination - and now i can do whatever i want! so i spent saturday scouring everywhere for chocolate brown curtains. you'd think that would be an easy thing to find. well it's not.
then it dawned on me. hey, i have a sewing machine*. i can MAKE my own damn curtains! it just so happens that the first site to pop up in google when you type "how to make curtains" is a discount decorator fabric store in denver. if that's not a sign. so i went over there yesterday and spent $50 on this awesome chocolate brown velvet-type material and some turquoise/brown houndstooth material for the border and tabs. i finished one panel yesterday - and i daresay it's not half bad! of course the stitches could be straighter.. and since i've never had a sewing class, i have no idea if i made any huge errors. but who cares, it's not like i'm planning on entering a county fair anytime soon!
now i just have 5 more panels to go. anyone want to start a betting pool on how long it will take me to get fed up, scrap the project, and settle for something from bed, bath & beyond?
*si: "but, you said you wanted a sewing machine!?!?" me: "well yeah, but not as a christmas present from my BOYFRIEND!"
these pups are some of the now-adult dogs from the breeder i'm looking at. i know.
and here are just some of the cutest pup pictures i saw online. they're so cute i can't stand it. i just want to nuzzle them and become a sled dog racer.
i'm actually going to call my new car pepe. not zippy. pepe is fun to say. and the black racing stripes are like a reverse skunk.
busy weekend. drinking friday. show on saturday. met someone saturday who actually ended up already being a myspace friend and neither of us knew it. that was kind of trippy, but fun. riding sunday - beautiful weather, no traffic, good company. can't complain.
decided i'm going to get an alaskan malamute puppy. they're so cute i can hardly stand it! here is the breeder i'm looking at. they'll have a litter ready in august. i'm going to see if i can find one in a shelter before then.
simon is being a jackass. i might have to get a lawyer because he just tried to pull the "everything you own is now half mine" card. not sure it applies to things i got before the "marriage". irritating. he hasn't moved out yet and i fear it's going to be a few more weeks before i get my house back.
i have another interview in a couple weeks. it's a 2nd interview. very excited. cross your fingers for me!
