Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
Happy Friday, playa partnas! I hope your week was productive; no matter if it was easy or hard. Being productive, proactive, and getting results is always a win, because it’s proof that you tried.
My week was very…all over the place. Actually, I spent most of my energy focusing on the energy around me from other people. Needless to say, it’s been stressful. It can be very stressful realizing that there’s something/someone in your life that drains you more than fulfills you. Not to mention, it’s even worse if that thing/person plays a big part of your life. So, I’ve been trying to decide if that relationship is worth restoring or evaporating. So, that’s what I’m praying through at the moment.
Oh, an update on my attempts to buy a new sofa: still NO sofa. After much consideration, I’ve decided to hold off on buying a new sofa until I pay off my new bed. I plan to pay off my bed in 3 months, instead of the year I agreed to when I bought it. I didn’t want to take a big chunk out of my savings to buy a sofa, nor did I want to use a credit card or finance it. So, since I really don’t need a sofa at this time, I can wait another couple of months.
I’ve only been in my new place for a couple of weeks and everyday I realize I need to get something. The latest item is a vacuum cleaner, which I’ve been in denial about since I moved in. I haven’t had to deal with carpet in over 5 years. However, I can’t deal with all this carpet without a vacuum. So, I plan to hit up Bed, Bath, and Beyond with a 20% coupon this weekend to find an efficient vacuum that can suck up every crumb and dust particle from my carpet. Also, it would be nice if it doesn’t weigh too much, since I’m going to have to carry it up 3 flights of stairs. Whew, chillay!
I hope your weekend is happy, fulfilling, and allows you to stop by over here next week. See ya! Enjoy the reads in this week’s Link-End Round-Up.
