I don’t sleep in my bedroom …
My bedroom’s purpose is this … storage.
That’s it … that’s all.
It’s a place where I store my clothes … and do my ironing. 🙂 (Yeah, be real, of course I have a television in my bedroom … I’m single, and I have seven televisions my house … it’s not easy finding places to store them.)
Now I don’t have the best closet space in my house … and it was always a challenge when there were two living here … but when I was single again … I consolidated all of my clothes into the bedroom and … well, used the room as a place to change.
But we have to be realistic about things … two people live here again … Joe and Amy. And though Amy’s warddrobe needs some serious attention … she’s got stuff.
A lot of it is totally worthless to me, because it was accummulated when I had no clue of what I was doing … don’t forget, everything I know, whether it’s what kinda goes with what, what sorta looks better on me than not, and maybe what size I wear … I’ve learned on my own. And there was a fair amount of trial and error in figuring it out. Hell, working up the nerve to buy a female article of clothing in the first place was hard enough, there was no way I’d return it when finding it not the right size.
So … over the years … my bed became another storage locatioooon. A place to toss clothes … stuff awaiting ironing. And a place not to sleep.
Anyways … I’m changing that. And I started the process yesterday.
First … I have two closets which I am purging … setting things aside … both boy and girl into either KEEP, DONATE or TOSS piles.
Once that’s been completed, I’m going to wash the closet walls, tidy them up a bit and re-fill … Amy’s stuff in the bedroom … Joe’s stuff in the adjacent hall closet.
Then it’s the dresser drawers, same process … consolidate … 1 drawer for Joe, 2 for Amy … 1 for Joe, 2 for Amy …
During that process … I’m going to be yanking the furniture out of there and painting the room … obviously, my addiction to While You Were Out is starting to have an effect … and then it’s redecorating.
I went shopping last night for some new sheets and coverings … as I have been looking for the past few weeks. But haven’t found anything I like. Contrary to what appears to be most people’s expectation of me … and for some, a sign I’m really not a transsexual … I’m not all about being girly, girly. And my redone bedroom isn’t going to be either … no pinks and purples and flowers everywhere.
Sorry kids … just not me. Keep in mind … in light of the whole color blind issue I have … when I’m not able to pester Singer or Satan (yes the Satan) for color assistance … I always go with the colors I can tell … blue, lots of blue … grey, lots of grey … white, lots of white … yellow, lots of yellow. That’s pretty much it. Anyways, with this endeavor, I don’t want to have to deal with Satan wanting to know why I’m doing these changes … and there are just too many color decisions that’ll have to be made with which to pester Singer …. sooooo …
My bedroom is going to be blue and grey … something I can handle … and which I think will give a nice clean, serene, no fuss look. (Of course, I have to be somewhat cautious with the color integration because it could easily have too boy a look … which could maybe freak a guy out if I was able to coerce such for some one on one … but it’s not a major concern … because by the time I have the equipment for such, who knows if I’m still allowed to be here … and let’s be real, when there’s a prospect for getting laid, guys don’t notice what the room looks like … they just want to make sure they have their getaway plan in place.)
Now … I don’t care which of the two colors is the dominant color in my bed covering, but I want to find it first and then work the rest of the room’s colors off that.
In the mean time, I’m prepping the room to get it to that point … ’cause I want to have most of it done before ffs, at least to the point where I’m sleeping in the bed, so I have a nice comfy recovery place. 🙂
So that’s the bedroom action I had last night … exciting, huh? 😛
