Helping the economy

The other day, I hired JC Penney to create and install black out drapes (for the sliding glass door) and shades (for the two windows) in the master bedroom.  The fabric I chose for the drapes is pretty, as it matches the teal stripes in the wallpaper.  There will be a wand instead of a cord to make drawing the drapes easy.  Although the cloth lining will be white, it will still prevent the light from seeping into the room. 

The pleated shades will also be teal and will keep the light out.  Best of all, these shades will remain pleated over the years; they will not flatten over time like our previous shades. 

David will be very happy when these coverings are installed in October, as he always complains about the bedroom being too bright when he naps during the day.

Next month, we will have the carpet professionally steam cleaned.  It’s only been a year since it was installed, but I’ll bet that there are all kinds of organisms and dirt lying inside the carpet.  From experience, I know that the water will be brown when the steam vacuum container is emptied.

Finally, we have decided to stop our weekly golf practice at the driving range, and take lessons from a golf pro, instead.  Why start bad habits that will be hard to break?  We might as well learn to swing correctly from the get-go.

We are stimulating the economy.  Are you?

    Join the club… stimulating the economy that is. I like helping our country but it’s getting a bit painful right now.

    We still don’t have our master bedroom furniture OR our car.

    Sigh.

    I am unemployed and need the economy to stimulate me! I had lunch in a restaurant today and Amoeba is going golfing this afternoon, does that count?
