Not Quite Wordless Wednesday: Living Room

This is my living room.

Yes, I have been living here for a month and some days and still don't have living room furniture.  We have basically been using the place as a studio - living in mainly the bedroom.  I'm getting some more counter space for the kitchen today and will be more comfortable using that space after that happens - I even plan to cook my first meal in the apartment afterward.

Today, on our third day off of the year from Jewish holidays, I am going to go to Target to get some sort of organizer to put into the bedroom.  Not sure how I will carry the item(s) back home on the subway and the walk to the crib - may have to get a cab if it is not too expensive.

I have the yoga mat for morning centering/sanity and for sitting when I am grading or planning for school - though, some of that, too happens in the bedroom (which I hate since I like it to just be for sleeping).  I have my two teacher bags sitting neatly on the floor.  I need to get a couch, but I'm not sure when that will happen due to money and me not being home for it to be delivered.  I would like to get a desk, but that is not a necessity since I have never used one in places I have lived.

The television has been watched for a total of about two hours in the month and a week since I have been in NYC.  Crazy since I used to be watching tv from the time I got home from work until the time I went to bed - at least 5-7 hours each day.

I am going to have the cable cut off and just keep the internet.


  1. This takes me back to pre kids in our first house and we spent months just living in the bedroom with a fridge, microwave and a cooker. I remember eating take out in bed watching the tv cuddled up under the duvet with my other half.... Hope you get to use your other rooms to their full potential soon ;-)

    1. It has been an adventure! I now have a small table and two chairs in the living room, but still do much of my living in the bedroom. Still not sure when a couch will be purchased. Glad you have happy memories of your bedroom living.


I share my thoughts and would love to read your thoughts, too.
