Roberta's New Furniture (Photostory)
What? Roberta's furniture is done? Well almost. I still need to put the legs on both pieces, and add the throw pillows, but I'm soooo happy to have this much done. I had the delivery people deliver the living room set today, so Roberta could start using it. Sharmaine just happened to stop by for a visit.
"Yes, they delivered it about 1/2 hour ago. You are the first to see it." (Roberta)
"It's nice, Auntie. Coomfortable, too." (Sharmaine)
"I still have to pick out some nice throw pillows. I'll do that over the next couple of weeks." (Roberta)
"I've been looking at some nice accent rugs. I wanted to wait until the pieces arrived to see what size would be best." (Roberta)
"But that's enough about me and this furniture. How are you?" (Roberta)
"I'm doing okay. Just busy trying to find a place to stay." (Sharmaine)
"Oh, that's right, you were staying at Danielle's. Where are you staying right now?" (Roberta)
"I'm still at Danielle's old place, but I have to be out of there by the end of this month." (Sharmaine)
"I wish I had two bedrooms, I would offer to let you stay here." (Roberta)
"That's sweet, Auntie. I don't think I'm going to have any problem finding something. Me and a couple of friends were thinking about getting a place together." (Sharmaine)
"Are these females or males or both?" (Roberta)
"Females, of course. I'm not looking to live with any men until I get married." (Sharmaine)
"Speaking of men and getting married, how is that cute lil' fella you brought to the cookout?" (Roberta)
"Kobe? Oh he's fine." (Sharmaine)
"So you guys are still dating?" (Roberta)
"Yesss, we are still dating." (Sharmaine)
"You will have to bring him over for dinner one day." (Roberta)
"He would like that. That boy can eat." (Sharmaine)
"Well check with him and let me know what is a good day." (Roberta)
"Will JT be there?" (Sharmaine)
"Probably, unless you don't want him to be." (Roberta)
"Oh no, that would be great. I like him and I like the two of you together." (Sharmaine
Roberta starts blushing.
They chat for another 15, 20 minutes before Sharmaine heads out.
Now that Roberta has her furniture, I can finish decorating her house. It won't be a total overhaul like Danielle's house. Maybe some new curtains, a new rug, and some greenery to start. The plan wasn't to have two navy pieces, but I'm hoping to lighten up the room with the pillows and curtains.
P.S. My computer totally crashed today and I had to take it all the way back to factory settings. Luckily I had the whole thing backed up, so I didn't lose anything. When was the last time you backed up your files?
