It still needs curtains, 2 black lamps and a lamp shade but other than that, I'm calling it done.
And it has made the rest of the house look like utter crap. Den seemed terrified when I brought that up. I don't know if he was concerned that I would start gutting the rest of the house and make him do more work. Or if he was worried that I would spend more money. As Forest Gump would say, "maybe its both." I foresee many more room redos in the future. I also realized that I'm not a fan of the new comforter in our room. Much money needs to be spent.
Den informed me that this cold is so bad that it had to have been genetically engineered by the government. I told him the name of it is the man flu.
I got $6 from Pinecone! Yeah me.
I've spent about $100 on gifts so far. Doormats and Christmas mugs for everyone! 50 mugs might be a lot to some people but not us. I'm just hoping that Den will be satisfied with giving out just that at work.Time will tell.

Anywho, she is trying to get into the Grad assistance-ship program. It would mean that she would get her Masters for free and the school would guarantee her a job while in the program. Its a 2 year program. I told her its the Masters program or she would have to come home. We will be cutting her off after this. It finally sunk in after I said she should move home. To be honest, I don't think that we could live together. I may bite her.
So if you would be so kind as to throw out a positive vibe or a prayer that she gets in, we would all be so grateful.
The only problem is the program doesn't start until the summer. So Miss Anna is going to figure something out until them. She could start taking classes before the program starts but she would have to pay for them so I think she should wait.
Ahhhh, one down and one to go.
