June 22 - July 9 have been some of the most exhausted days of my life. Yes, that's what I meant to say. I have been utterly and totally beyond exhausted. That's why I haven't been posting much. I think I have found the culprit and have taken steps to correct the situation. I am feeling much better, and pray that continues.
I finally convinced Phil to get some new lamps for our living room. Matching ones at that. It took a bit of talking to help him see that black would be fine as we have two floor lamps that are black, and the curtain rods are the same. So we went to WalMart, and purchased the ones below with part of the gift card we received for our anniversary.
You can't see from the pictures, but the shades are tan. They look great!
