I think this hill walking every day is getting to my head in the best possible way! I feel like I'm thinking of ways to try to fix some things, instead of doing nothing and being frustrated. A perfect example is my kitchen. It is basically a hallway that happens to have a stove, sink and refrigerator. And a dishwasher that is where I store my dishes I've washed by hand. Any time I cook something a little on the more complicated side, I get so irritated I vow never again. As much as I love cooking, sometimes it just doesn't seem worth it.
There is an area in one of the parking garages in my building where people put furniture and electronics they don't want. When I first moved in, I saw a little cabinet, mini dresser type thing, and I grabbed it for the side of my bed, as a little makeshift nightstand, and a place for my now ex to put clothes if he wanted to leave anything here. It's kind of ugly, and I don't really need it in my bedroom anymore. So, I had it sitting by my door to go back to the give up area, when the thought occurred to me to paint it with the leftover eggplant paint I have, and put it in the area next to my kitchen, and use it as storage, and extra counter space. Some of my cupboards are so high that I really can't use them, because stuck gets stuck in the back and I can't reach it. And the counter underneath the cabinet I'm talking about is too small to jump on. It's annoying. So, with these deep drawers, I can fit lots of spices and such.
I am by no means handy around the house. I do not know what many tools are, and my experience with painting things is VERY limited. So, this will be a fun experiment. But, I already have the paint, and the thing, so why not?
The hill is calling my name, so I will leave you with this picture of the world's biggest blanket hog, Dylan. That is a tough title to win, as blanket and bed hogging is a special talent of mine!
