On becoming a pauper to sleep like a Queen


The highlight of my mix weather weekend (beautiful spurts of sunlight, intermingled with ridiculous thunderstorms) was the purchase of a beautiful chandelier for my ‘harem’ themed bedroom.

I spent all last night delighting in its majesty. Cranky Putz is well on her way to putting together her dream bed room. Only detail left is the over sized mirror, placed strategically in front of the bed, to do my make up ofcourse…..

The chandelier was installed courtesy of my dear fixer upper father. He arrived early to the chandelier’s first mangy cousin. It was an anorexic thing, who I thought would do the job saving me a cool $100. I got daddy dear to install it and we painstakingly hooked in each little crystal, only to find that we both didn’t love it.

Off we went to home depot, to get the real deal. The hot shottas of chandeliers; the queen bee. And we repeated the same process. It felt like putting together a snazzy Christmas tree, delicately hanging those intricate ornaments. Yet the end result was definitely worth the effort.

Later in the night, my dear family began to calculate how much I would owe them should they have been general contractors:
Cranky Pop: About $50 and hour, plus expenses
Cranky Brother: Plus delivery and gas
Cranky Mother: About $60 an hour for the dinner

A good thing that family debts can be re-paid in hugs and kisses.
