Well, my online brand isn't exactly accurate anymore. I'm down 90 pounds so this is the new me:
Not my prettiest moment, but oh well. It's quarantine. I'm now a size medium and I've even dropped at least one cup size in my bra. Now everyone is calling me Thinner, like the Steph . King novel.
Anyway, so here's what's happened. I love my job on March 17th. Filed for unemployment and was only entitled to $39 a week, which comes out to $35 after taxes. That's some bullshit right? Thank god for the Federal stimulus. And my son had been out of school since February. I wish I could make him understand this hasn't ever happened before and he really needs to appreciate this break. He doesn't care. Oh well.
But I've been spending my time redoing my house. Painting, cleaning, organizing. New furniture and such.
This picture shows you the old, cookie dough color our house has been since it was built. I repainted the living area and kitchen with a light green.
That's the finished living room. Now the kitchen was a beast, with 12 foot ceilings and beams and dust everywhere. I really have to deep clean on top of cabinets a lot more, having a million pets to shed all over the place.
Bryan wants me to repaint the birds on the wall when I'm all finished with this. He really likes my art, and that's why I love him.
There you have that. Small but more than enough.
But apparently I wasn't done. Because one week later I hung a new light fixture in the dining area, a "fandelier" which is a fan and chandelier combo.
The blades stay folded up unless the fan is on. Neat right?
And then today I repainted the fireplace.
I'm still waiting to hang new shelves in the dining area, which should get done Wednesday. And my new kitchen table and chairs is on the way. Then I should be 100% done.
Who am I kidding? I'm manic and trying to burn energy.
It seems like we may not have Booklikes for much longer. So if you need me, I'm on Insta as @chubbygirlreads. Also find me on Goodreads, but I'm not very active.
I hope all of you are staying safe. Be careful out there.
