So, I finally did it yesterday. I rolled out my mat, plugged my laptop into the TV and started my video via Netflix. (I *heart* Netflix.) 30 minutes later, I was sure I was going to die on the floor. =P No, it wasn't quite that bad but I was kind of feeling it. Everyone says that exercising gives you more energy. For me, it's not quite the same. I was exhausted yesterday. So much so that I almost talked myself out of going to the store for some things I needed.
Today is a completely different story. I did not work out today, mainly because my legs and arms are SORE. I sat down on the couch this morning
Then, I decided that while water was boiling for my dinner, I'd go check out the curtain situation. I opened the box for the curtain rod and checked out all the pieces. Then I opened the curtains and threw them in the dryer for some de-wrinkling. Dinner was just about finished (good 'ole Mac & Cheese), so I dealt with that and then sat down to eat. I was planning on watching Glee but it was a rerun. Sad face. Instead, I got a little more work done.
Watch out! ;-)
Side 1: complete!
Look at that handiwork!
Props to my dad for teaching me to do this kind of stuff!
Side 2: Done!
I think they look awesome!
I really love the detail on the rod too.
It had me at "hello." ;-)
So, whaddaya think?
And yes, I totally made my bed just for this picture. Don't judge me. =P
I guess since my totally tough workout from yesterday spawned this crazy spurt of energy, I'll do it again tomorrow. =) I'm kind of impressed with myself too. I only had one little snafoo (is that how you spell it?) in using the drill. I used the wrong size bit and completely destroyed one of the screws. *shrugs* Live and learn! Plus, they always give you extras. There were plenty left for me to use! They also gave me another support for the rod... I'm assuming that's to use if you need to support the whole length... It's adjustable up to 66 in. and my window isn't quite that large. Anyway. I also got them for quite a steal! $14 for the rod and $15 for the curtains.
I'm so glad I finally did this. I've been dying to hang up curtains in the bedroom. I know that no one but me (and you!) will see them, but they make me happy. =) Next, I'll be on the search for curtains for the living room. And a rug for the living room. And maybe a valance for the kitchen window... We'll see. =)
Hope y'all had a good Tuesday too!
