What Happens When You Eat Too Much of a Good Thing



I love chocolate. I don’t mean a Hershey’s bar. I mean a bar with a cocoa content of %85 and higher. Yesterday I ate half of one. At 5:00 p.m.

By 9:10 p.m., the caffeine coursing through my system still had not dwindled so I decided I was going to rearrange our bedroom. The Southern Gent helped me move a couple of things and then, for his own protection, went to his office to get some work done.


After that, I was a flurry of activity that resulted in this.


this . . .


and this. I tried to give The Southern Gent a reading nook. Does a guy even want a reading “nook”? Probably not but hey, I was high on chocolate!

I went to bed at about 11:00 p.m. I was awake again at 3:45 a.m. By 5:30 a.m., I gave up and decided I would clean the garage.


This involved shopvacing the floor, and vacuuming the dirt and cobwebs off of this piece The Southern Gent recently found on the street in our Hood.


I then moved on to this other piece he found.


Believe it or not this is what it looked like after I vacuumed it. Still a lot of cleaning to do on this guy. At least there are no more spiders or globs of dirt clinging to it though.


That’s not the end of it though. Today when I came home I was running on fumes but decided to make an adjustment in our room. I don’t know if it will stay like this but it will have to wait until the next chocolate/caffeine high.


Then maybe I can figure out what to do with this wall, that atrocious red and the unpainted trim in the bathroom area on the right, and not to mention the Teal Chair. See it there on the left hand side?

Okay. I am officially done.

I will see y’all tomorrow.
