Thank you so much for all the nice comments yesterday on Instagram, Facebook and here for my little magazine feature. I really appreciate it. You guys are truly the best and you are the reason for making this blogging so much fun.
My Instagram and Facebook friends already saw that my little calico cat had 4 teeth removed and I was afraid that she wouldn’t make it due to her new heart problems. She has hyperhyroidism (she does get medication for it) which can cause heart problems. And anesthesia is always risky for an already bad heart. She had to get her teeth done since she was in so much pain and could barely eat or drink. When I got back from Germany she was dehydrated and had lost 2 pounds…poor baby. Well she survived thank God, but I had to find out that she is probably in the early stages of kidney disease (kidney failure). Which just crushes me because that is what our Harry (click HERE to read) just recently died of and it was awful. I don’t want to go through that again.
The reason why I’m telling you this right now is that our basement was the area of our house where he had his accidents/litter box problems. It got really messy at the end of his illness. We NEVER confined him to the basement but according to his papers he was locked in his previous owner’s basement (which is so sad in itself), so that’s just where he got dirty in our house. Which in some way was a good thing I guess. But that’s the reason why we had everything covered in plastic and stacked away for a long time.
There was no football season in the mancave for the hubby last year, so he is happy that he is finally able to hang down there again.
I’m just now starting to put things back in order and today I wanted to show you what’s going on in our basement. It’s not done at all and for now it’s a gathering place of random things.
I have to tell you right away how much I HATE the couch (so beware) and I hope we can get a new one soon. And I also dislike the basement window 🙁
|It’s certainly challenging to take nice pictures in the dark basement |
but the photos didn’t turn out too bad, right?
So here is what I still want to do:
- I’d love to find a couch on Craigslist but that is probably wishful thinking because it does get kind of gross. I passed on a couch a while back which was a blue retro round sectional and I still think about it all the time. Darn it! Maybe Ikea can come to the rescue once again??
- I would like to do something with the Ikea Besta unit.
- I want to possibly move the chair to our bedroom and get a more comfortable one.
- And I got some other ideas in the back of my head…lets see.
So this was a pretty long post. Did you make it all the way to the bottom? 😉
I was kind of dreading a basement post but now I got it off my chest. What does yours look like?
