A Room of One's Own or Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?
The Straight Eye for the Home Office Makeover is proceeding apace. The walls are "Truffle Oil" and the trim is boo boo paint. You know, when they tint it wrong for someone so they put it in the sale bin. The boo boo paint has no name, so I have christened it "Ice Prince's Chocolate Pudding Lunchbox Explosion". Which is very accurate.

I thought it would take three gallons to do the room, but one gallon will do two coats. Apparently when I was doing the calculations I also calculated the fourth dimension. New from Martha Stewart: "Space Time Continuum paint: for those who can't stand to have their colours not coordinate in all dimensions". It's a quantum leap in decorating technology!

Do I sound more like me? I feel more like me. I start back to work half days on Monday. Not too nervous. The first week should be easy. Buy me lunch, Terry? Your turn!

Monday, Frank is taking me to the Rufus Wainwright concert. Hurrah!

Still working on the new blog name.

What's Up? Nothing Much.

I have decided on a colour for the home office. It is "Truffle Oil". I'm waiting for the rain to stop to head out to Canadian Tire with my bundle buggy.

The house is clean. Ish. Okay, the main floor is clean. My empty frog tank is staring at me. Yes, my frogs all died in a tragic accident. I will be getting more next week. They are buried in the backyard under a wee cast iron frog statue.

I am addicted to gardening. Everytime I go to the corner store I buy more plants. Which is nice, because I always wanted time to make my garden beautiful. I'm still working on the back garden. I have tomatoes! And carrots!

Last night after I put Ice Prince to bed I was singing along to my mp3 player with headphones on when IP yelled downstairs: "Sing louder! That's really beautiful!" I've always loved singing. I'd love to take some lessons. I really need to do that.

I think the rain has stopped. Time to go to Canadian Tire, which is almost as much fun and as tempting as Shopper's Drug Mart. Whee!

What's New: The Queen is Dead, Long Live The Queen
Kind of a stressful weekend. Ice Prince drives me crazy sometimes. For those who are childless, here's a zefrank video that gives you a taste. Only louder, continously and starting at 6:30 am.

I'm going back to work (part days) next Monday, so this is my last week of freedom. Which is why it's raining. I'm almost done my new song, just stumped on a few lines.

I think I'll be renaming this blog. I don't feel very Ice Queeny anymore. Anyone have any suggestions? I have a couple of ideas.

I will also be relaunching my cheapspot.to site, because writing to deadline for blogto is more extra stress than I need right now. But I still like reviewing things.

Stay tuned more posts to come!
