Feeling Like a Grown Up

Do you know what makes me feel like a grown up? Controlling my own thermostat. I’ve never ever been in charge of that before. Growing up in the Churches’ residence (may I help you, please?), you didn’t dare touch the dial. If it moved even a fraction of a millimeter, somehow my dad would know. And fix it. So it’s kind of a big deal that I now have to decide how to wield this super power.

(This clip from Family Guy always makes me laugh.)

We haven’t turned on our heat yet… It’s bearable once the sun has been up for a few hours, but I don’t know what will happen after the temps dip below the freezing mark tonight. I’ll let you know tomorrow after I’ve defrosted my lappy.

Do you know what else makes me feel like a grown up? Eating Brussels sprouts. And learning that it’s spelled Brussels. Sprouts. Add bacon to anything and it’s edible.

Do you know what else makes me feel like a grown up? Needing to buy furniture. There’s a lot in my life that I say I ‘need.’ But furniture is a legit item in that long list. Well, we were blessed today with some free, American-made, solid wood bedroom furniture. You wouldn’t find it in the latest Pottery Barn catalog, but it’ll do. You know how, for some unknown reason (let’s blame the French), styles from decades past come back? I think this style of furniture has come and gone twice now. So hopefully if we hang on to it for a while longer, it’ll be back again. 😉 Also, how long do you think it will be before the 90’s grunge, Kurt Cobain style and “the Rachel” come back?
