I'm having some new bedroom furniture delivered today. That's a picture of the actual dresser up there and I got two nightstands to match. The bed looks like the one on the left except it is sandstone (beige-ish) with silver accents instead of the black with gold accents.
I also got a new mattress. The salesperson asked me what kind I wanted and I told her I had been sleeping on the same mattress for the last 26 years so, I'm obviously not very picky in that department. My current mattress actually has a visible dent in it caused by the heaviest part of my anatomy.
My bedroom is pretty small and the furniture is pretty big. I'm beginning to have anxiety attacks approximately every hour due to my OCLS - obsessive compulsive lifestyle. According to Jack, it isn't a disorder, it's a lifestyle choice. My OCLS isn't of the Monk variety. It's more of the Felix Unger variety.
My OCLS is causing me to have regrets and second thoughts. Could I have gotten a better deal somewhere else? Nothing is going to fit in the room or look right together. Should I have gotten more of a feminine style of furniture to go with the romantic look of the bed? Should I have shopped around more?
I'm certain that all of my nicknacks and brickabrack and googahs are going to suddenly be hideously tacky. The delivery men will punch holes in my walls and, the first time I sleep in the bed, it will go crashing to the floor.
All of the clothes from my old dresser are on the couch in my office and all of the pictures in the bedroom and hall are on the floor along with the aforementioned hideously tacky nicknacks, brickabrack and googahs. I've moved my living room furniture in an effort to prevent the movers from breaking things downstairs on their way up to the bedroom. All of this wreaks havoc on the sensitive psyche of a person with an OCLS.
Did I mention there is a 90% chance of rain today?
