These last two months have been quite eventful! We moved out of state, bought a new-to-us car, had a few health scares between the both of us (and the cat included), but everything finally seems to be settling back into a new normal.
I want to make a new blog post with photos of my squeaky clean apartment but see, what happened was that Sunday I spent all day cleaning and unpacking and then the next day I woke up, and it was messy again! Hah, just kidding. I have been really behind these last two days on housework. I’ve been pushing myself a lot these last few weeks to get stuff done, so I fell behind on the dishes and other stuff.
When we moved we left a lot of stuff behind, and I’m loving this new minimalist style I got going on at home. Rather than lugging things we don’t like or use very often we parted ways with those pieces and left them back in Jersey. You see, I’m telling people that I don’t need the stuff to get by in life, and honestly, it’s working, I actually believe myself. Although I can see myself purchasing a large bed frame shortly, a purchase I’ll probably curse myself over the next time I move, quite honestly it’s almost effortless to clean and dust without having to lift or work around stuff.
One thing I am confident I will be getting is a bathmat. I just hate the feeling of moving my feet from plush carpet to cold, hard tile. It’s barbaric, absolutely it is.
Below are two of the bath rugs from Etsy I’ve been eyeing. I want to get something that’s cool, you know. Something that gets me excited about brushing my teeth in the morning. Right now, it’s just torture standing there in front of my mirror, with cold feet, knowing that I have to face the day accompanied by tonsil stones. Oh yes, those bad boys plague me now, and I’m not ashamed to admit it because I’m trying everything possible to get rid of them. My DIY tricks seem to be doing the trick (rinsing with salt water, swishing with coconut oil) but I’m not completely in the clear yet. Hey, at least if we were ever to meet you can get eventually get away from me and once more breathe clean, fresh oxygen, but me? I can’t get away from me and my tonsil stones.
So yeah. I think that’s a pretty decent transition into what I talk about today and that’s the rugs I’ve been eyeing all this week. When I tell you that these bathmats have popped in and out of my mind all weekend, I’m telling you, well, a lie. They haven’t left my mind at all, okay? I used to be an avid fabric hater, but now that my new apartment has wall to wall carpeting, I’m kind of in love with how it feels. Right now, I’ve narrowed it down to two very different types of bath mats. Each one speaks to and livens up a different part of my being, my soul, basically who I am as a person. Sometimes I’m a little classy, (see number one), but most of the time, I just want to have fun (see number two). Bath rugs are the same price, but have super different feels. I really like the textured one of the first one but the forwardness of the second rug really speaks to me.
