So last year, my mother, in a fit of money scrimping, bought me my sheets and such out of the school catalog. When they arrived, they were about the texture of paper and as warm as a t-shirt and shorts. I used them all last year out of pure laziness to go through the process of buying more, but this year mother has decided to get me some new things. So, I went to my favorite store's website (Delias.com) and checked out their bedclothes. I narrowed it down to two sets, but I need your help. Here are the two styles I'm thinking of, tell me what you think. These are going to last me the next 2-3 years, so I had better like them. However, I can't decide, so I need your help.|
This is just pure class. I would get the sheets and the duvet cover, and possibly the cameo pillow, if I'm really nice. I love the classy Victorian look to it, and the colors look good in any setting.
This one speaks for itself in the awesomeness category. I would be sleeping in music!! I would get the sheets and duvet cover for this too, and my mother likes the little piano rug so that may get thrown in as well. However, the cons for this are: I hate pink, and, is it too flashy? The pink isn't the primary color here, so that could be overlooked. But it still seems pretty loud. It's still really frieking awesome though.
Ok, I need you all to vote. I told my mom I would give her an answer by tomorrow, so quick quick quick!
In other, sadder news.
Today we put Cleo to sleep. A couple of weeks ago, she had a stroke and lost control of her hind legs. We had to carry her outside to pee, hold her up while she drank, and pretty much feed her by hand. Her eyesight was going, so when she did try and crawl around, she usually ended up getting stuck somewhere, and we'd have to go save her.
They gave us some pills, but when they ran out and there was no change in her health, we decided it was the best thing to do. I went with mom and my brother to the vets, but when I saw them hold her down for the shot, I ran away and cried in the car.
We had Cleo for 12 years, and it's going to be really sad not to have her around anymore. She was my bedwarmer in the winter, kept all of my secrets, and bit every boyfriend I brought into the house. She was a princess to the end, and snubbed the nurse who tried to give her a cheap doggie treat.
It seemed really odd sleeping with Cleo last night and talking to her this morning. It was like, we're taking her in to kill her in a few hours, and she's just sitting there looking at me like nothing is wrong. How bizarre is this?
If any of you knew Cleo, you know how hard this is for me. She was my baby, so matter how old she was. I feel good knowing that she's not in pain anymore, but it still sucks big time.
When I was outside the vet crying, this old man who was working on the gardens came over. He had brought his two little yorkie terriers with him, and he put them in my lap and let me hold them until mom and pat came out to get me. They were really old too, but they were still really lively and licked my face and made me smile. It's pretty amazing what a cheerful dog can do to a persons mood.
My parents say they don't want to get another dog for a while. I'm off at school, and Patrick's starting his senior year, so they don't have a lot of time to train and care for a puppy. I sort of wish they would get a new dog, because I miss Cleo so much that having another animal for me to cuddle with would make it a lot easier.
Well, that's all. We're going to the Hathaways for dinner and a game night. Kat will understand what it's like to lose a pet, so it'll be a nice night. I just hope I don't ruin in with crying.
So anyways, please help me with the sheets decision. It'll help me take my mind of Cleo and brighten up my dorm room a little bit.
