We have hit...

...a little bump in the road.  Sarah, my coworker who was going to move into the Cabin with me, decided not to move in.  So, I now have to find a roommate. But my soon-to-be landlord is super cool and told me not to sweat the other half of the rent.  I will pay my half, like normal and look for a roommate. When I get one, he or she will pay the other half, pro-rated.  :::SIGH of relief inserted here:::

I move in Sunday. It's a darling little house, and I'm super SUPER excited about the location.  Location, location, location!!!  And I have also wanted to live in a log cabin since I was a little girl playing with my Lincoln Logs.  I have done a little shopping for the place, but so far I've only actually bought a large tapestry for the curtains in the living room.  The house is partly furnished. The precious tenants are leaving two couches (they are leather so I'm going to need slip covers- leather is just not comfortable to me),  a desk and four dining chairs.  Leaving very few things to aquire.  And a very limited budget.  Here's what I'm thinking:

Furniture I need:
1-dining table
 I hope to find something of the appropriate height, a tree trunk perhaps, and nail a piece of plywood to the top.  I would love to find something that looks really cool.  I am envisioning a knotty pine, but I'm not so sure how easy that is going to be to find. It might have to be an old pillar that I find at the Thrift Store. We shall see.  So, If I find something cool, I'm going to cover the ply wood top with a funky tapestry, but tie it back so you can see the "leg" of the table.  However, if lameness ensues and I cannot find a cool table "leg," I can just cover it with an extra large tapestry or table cloth

2-coffee table
I live in Wyoming. Why not be totally stereotypical and get a SPOOL for the coffee table. hahahahha!! How great would that be if I could find one... But I really want to find an old trunk.  A piece of furniture that is both stylish and functional.  I can store blankets in the trunk so in the winter I don't have to get up from the couch to put a blanket over my feet. And I can take it with me when I move, as it will be a box for moving things!! 

3-book case
I'll know it when I see it.

The Habitat for Humanity Re-Store has some really cool stuff! I am going tomorrow to see what's there. They tend to be a little pricey, so hopefully I'll get lucky! 

As far as everything else goes: I'm good. Nothing really to report.  I did get some babysitting gigs, so I've got extra money coming in on the side, I think I'm going to go back to 40 hours a week at the Grocer (yay!!) and, uh, yeah, that's it.
