Redecorating Pains

So I'm redoing my living room a bit.  I have had the furniture in there for a good 10 years.  I have become so sick of it.  I had no accessories in there to speak of & it was blah blah blah.   After a trip to TJ Maxx and Target and HomeGoods it now has a bit of a personality.  I changed the color scheme, got a new chair, moved an old one out, and pillows pillows pillows!   I may post a pic of the final product but there are a few things I need to do first (i.e. get my huge canvas wrapped family pic I ordered, get some curtains up, etc).

Anyway, I had moved the old chair into a little alcove thingy in my entry way.  It is a bit big for the spot but I kinda like it.  It does stick out of the alcove a bit though (<---important information for later).

So last night I go downstairs to turn off all the lights.  It's about 1am and pitch dark.  I'm not scared, however, because I know every inch of this house.  Helen Keller herself couldn't do a better job navigating around here at night than I.

But I had forgotten about that dang chair...

(plzthanks ignore chipped toenail polish, cracked cuticles, dry feet skin, overall grossness of my feet, etc)

Due to the fact that it was the middle of the night and I didn't want to wake everyone up, all I could do is stand there, doubled over in agony, leaning against the stair banister, biting my knuckle to stifle my screams.  I was sure that when I looked at it in the light I would be down one toenail but luckily they all survived.  

I no longer think this joke is funny:

Q: How did Helen Keller's parents punish her?
A: They rearranged the furniture.

That gave me goosebumps when I looked at it. You are to be commended for not screaming and waking the whole family up. Send pictures of your new decor.

First, did you get those flip flops at Old Navy for $1?
Second, cringe. My toe is throbbing on your behalf.
Third, where are the before/after pics of the room? I'll be waiting impatiently.

If I would have run across a picture of those feet on another website I would have said 'wait, are those landee's?'

Your feet are just so you--and that looks painful, you are very brave to have survived this traumatic event.

Are you sure it isn't broken? Looks broken. I mean, for all that black and blue. Did you at least wake up yer hubby so he could feel sorry for you immediately? I would LOVE to see some pics of that room too! I wonder if there's some reason why I need to stop by....hmmm. Wanna rt44ddp on Monday? That could totally be your license plate, btw. RT44DDP. Perfect.
