Fix This Shit Up- A Coldplay Remix


Remember how me and My Love were moving in together? Ya know cohabitation, peeing with the door open, picking paint swatches and burning grilled cheese together? All that lovey shit.

Well, we finally did. Initially after that blog post, we put it off for a few months due to finances, fears, confusion, etc. etc. Then, with a little push from recent events and a dire need for independence and spending money on cleaning supplies and Pinot Grigio- we just said, fuck it (since that's my favorite phrase; When in doubt, say Fuck it!)- let's do it. Here's the catch....we moved into my Granny's apartment, that's attached to her house. It's completely separate from where she lives; it's own entry, kitchen, etc. etc. However, her things, were still in it. Until we came in and performed Operation Fix This Shit Up.

My Grandpa Jerry smokes a few packs a day and has for years, so the smoke, and the former furry Dog that lived there when my Cousin inhabited the place gave the whole apartment a nice blanket of.......grime? and well, fur.

I don't do grime. Let me tell you what I also don't do; WOLF ART. Native American sculptures. Western....anything (unless they're vintage cowboy boots or salsa), dog hair, mess, or sports paraphernalia. I've only acted like a gave a fuck about sports very few times in my life and I believe it was motivated by a reward in beer and jalapeno poppers.

When we moved all of our things in I thought- well, at least I know I'm dying of second hand smoke and not decapitation from a car crash, or melanoma. We've got that covered. Then, because I'm unreasonably impatient, we went to Home Depot painted, shampooed the carpets, washed the walls, put in crown molding, spent a gross amount of money at Hobby Lobby, replaced the curtains, the air filters and spruced the place up like we were Ty Pennington and that irritating team of cry babies with tool belts.

There's something about FIXING things with your love that's incredibly gratifying. Look what we did! It makes you feel like your team effort could certainly win the finale of Amazing Race, or you could make a kick ass winning Trivial Pursuit team. Or find a way to make a multi-room fort. Why we don't these things more often, I have no idea?

It's my first time living with a man, ya know one that isn't related, or temporarily crashing on my couch disguising himself as my friend and thinking of me as his hotel/maid. I've already told him to put down the toilet seat, a million times. He's already told me I'm annoying as "shit" and that I "never take his suggestions" to which I replied, "well, make better suggestions." And all of this....is out of love.

The mundane, the bickering and the feeling of can-you-not-cuddle-me-I'm-trying-to-sleep, are all just truths when someone becomes a part of your life, through and through.

After four days of "Operation Fix This Shit Up" while sitting on our vintage, newly shampooed couch, watching wedding cake show marathons on WEtv, I realized our home is finally a reflection of what we've gone through internally. Peeling back the layers, scrapping clean the tarnished ideas and scars that we've allowed to gather dust and sit there, permeating through every inch of our belief systems about ourselves, love, men, women....life.

When you meet that other person they help, "FIX YOU", they pull out their emotional Clorox wipes and help dust off the parts of you that over time shined a little less....they just needed a little assistance to reveal the natural sparkle. It isn't just carpet and cushions that need a good date with scrubbing bubbles.

We FIXED this home- together. We've fixed each other sometimes together, and other times completely solo, pulling the weight while the other floundered (or went to jail). Our house, our spirit, our love- sparkles and all it needed was a little deep cleaning.



WHO HAS HELPED "FIX" YOU????

Oh Chelsea, someone should really pay you to write like this! you rock. you will someday write a syndicated column about love and life and it will be awesome :) keep on keepin on, lady!

Jordan F said...

Oh wow, I loved this.

greenmyguy said...

My boyfriend, Austin...because he thinks I don't need "fixing" : )

Michelle said...

Incredible! And I totally agree with Justin Jones. You're bound to lead some magnificent Carrie Bradshaw-esque existence -- but without all of the unnerving Carrie Bradshaw traits and the unfortunate love predicaments.

Congratulations. From what I can see, you deserve it! xox.

Stevie said...

Oh man. I lived with a boyfriend several years back, but it was only out of financial need - he was planning on moving to LA (without me) and I was planning on staying in Seattle in the amazing apartment we rented together. So there was a time limit on our time together. I ended up getting so sick of him because I knew our huge apartment would be MINE soon. We ended things amicably and I lived by myself in that apartment for almost 4 years and LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT. Then last year I met the love of my life and we moved in together after about 9 months. I'm now in a TEENY apartment with him, had to sell/get rid of most of my shit, argued over my house plants that I refused to leave behind and his god awful bachelor futon couch that he couldn't part with, and everything else that you argue about when you do the whole combining of the stuff thing. And I've never been happier :-)

SOOO happy for you! Will you post pictures of your place?

Clairebear said...

Who fixed me? well, my bf and I 'fixed' each other. We were both very lost and in a very bad place when we met each other, to the point we had both agreed we werent ready to have another person rely on us so we couldnt be together. but literally in the space of days after meeting and being with each other, we were both seemingly different people. And neither of us have looked back since. We both saved and fixed each other.

Shibby said...

This is such a wonderful post :) I hope I find what you have it sounds amazing :)

I recently broke up, but I guess for the two years we were together, my partner helped fix me. But now we're not together anymore, I'm kind of feeling like maybe he 'fixed' me into something I don't want to be anymore.
So now I will fix myself. I totally started my own Operation 'Fix This Shit Up' today. I scraped wallpaper off of walls. I feel so hard core.

Melly said...

I remember when we moved into our first apartment.. we had a lot of stuff to combine, and 700 sq. feet to do it in.

I'm glad it made it out alive. :) We actually stuck it out for four years! The planning made all the difference, from deciding which drawer was the silverware drawer, to how bills would be split proportionately.

Now we're in a gorgeous 1250 sq. foot heaven, and we smile constantly. There is less stress, and we have gotten very GOOD at working things out. There are no fights, there are no 'up' toilet seats, and my shoes do not litter every room. I know his pet peeves, he knows mine.. we're very good about trying to do one thing to improve the other's day - everyday.

I wish you the happiness we enjoy. :) I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Melissa said...

How exciting for you guys! I felt this way (sans the second hand smoke and dog fur) with my husbands and my apartment. He is who fixed me, and the first guy I've ever lived with.

Emily Jane said...

Oh wow I LOVED this post! Woot for you guys! (Minus the smoke)

JUST ME said...

I think my man and I are fixing each other, slowly.

As long as we don't kill each other first.

Doniree said...

Yay! I'm so excited for you two and I can't wait to see your place!

Also? "can-you-not-cuddle-me-I'm-trying-to-sleep"

And I thought that was just me, ha!

Vanessa said...

So clever, and congrats on taking the big step!

I don't think I can follow the trend and say that a bf has helped fix me. For me, it's my mom.

Erin said...

Great post. I definitely had some boyfriends help "break me," but only my current one has ever made me feel like I didn't need fixing, I just need to see that for myself.

Erin said...

Matt said...

So I guess I will take back the dream catcher and old indian painting I got you guys for a housewarming present.

Amy --- Just A Titch said...

My boyfriend and I moved in together last February and this is so accurate as to what it's really like. There are the ugly moments, the yelling, the screaming, the fixing, but then there are the great ones of joy, when you come home and you realize that everything you love is there, and it is really, truly home

Laurnie said...

I could not have read this at a more perfect time. You are truly talented. I hope you dont mind, I may share your link in my blog sometime this week. Cheers!

Liz said...

Yay! I know what you mean, my love & I moved in together last July and it feels like we're STILL doing "Operation Fix This Shit Up" :) Congrats!

Margarita said...

Aww, that's so sweet that you found reflection through cleaning and renovating. Do you want to come do my place??

the "L" spot said...

I love your writing!!

your experience reminds me of when I moved into my loves aprt...and got rid of most of his things!

Mishi said...

Great post Chelsea! This made me feel happy just reading along. Is it possible for us to get a picture of your new digs?

Phoenix said...

"...those crybabies with tool belts." Oh my GOD YES. Thank GOD I'm not the only one who feels like a bitch as the Extreme Home Makeover Team sobs hysterically for the 800th time as they bulldoze someone's roof.

I was beginning to think I was a horrible person.

And I'm horrible at letting people fix me. :)

Candice said...

I like the whole idea of fixing up a house, you should post some pics. And also, leaving the toilet seat up is my BIGGEST PET PEEVE EVER. I hate the guy's argument that "we have to put it down for you to sit on it." I DONT WANT TO TOUCH YOUR PISS.

•¦Amy¦• said...

I love how you write, and I love your no bull-shit attitude. You're awesome.

I agree, anything overly western that doesn't involve salsa is not cool... I like surrounded by it. Cacti everywhere I look. Methinks I need to be getting out of Az...

Who helped fix me? Many many people. It has most definitely been a combined effort of those who've cared enough to learn about me. Friends, family, music.

Jill said...

Amazing post!
I wish I could live with my boyfriend and be annoyed by him lol We are 4 hours apart :/ And have been since June 2008

Kris said...

Now that's a fix-it-up montage I'd like to see!

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

just jones- THANK YOU JUSTIN......gosh, that's DEFINITELY the goal.....any takers out there?! lol


michelle- thank you....gosh, thought i have to say some of those irritatingcarrie bradshaw traits I share....cringe.

matt- oh dont worry, we already have one....so, yeah. take it back. lol

laurnie- i wouldn't mind at all, thank you so much!

candice- EXACTLY

amy- thanks sister! OH GOD, CACTI.....horrible.

jill- I definitely think things like that make you a stronger couple though in the end...when you're finally together.....

mishi- I'll definitely post some pics!!!!

Shannon of ** Happiness Is...** said...

This is the best. post. ever. I relate to everything. Living with a sig. other is so hard. But in the end, so worth it. My bf and I have been on and off for 7+ years, living together for just a few. We have fixed so many things about each other and continue to every day. Thank you Chelsea for your hilarious yet endearing and very REAL writing. xoxo

michelle said...

you're so lucky to have someone who makes you feel bright and shiny and will help you put up crown molding... i need to go eat some salt to counteract the sweetness of your post :p

(just kidding :))

christina said...

I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'm SO happy to have found your blog. You're an incredible writer. I just know I'm going to love coming back here again and again.

As for who "fixed" me...definitely my husband. When we met we were both so insecure. I had no self-confidence. I'm not sure when the actual "fixing" took place, but now I'm completely comfortable with who I am. And that's pretty cool.

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Have fun! Third time was a charm for me. He was finally the one I married! ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Melanie M said...

Oh my gosh. I called my boyfriend & read this story to him. It touched him. It touched the both of us. This is an amazing post. <33

Faux Naif said...

ehh? what the fuck? HOW COME I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THIS BLOG BEFORE? how the hell did you find MY teenytinyminusculeinsignificant corner of the internet? you are hilariously articulate and i think i may love you a little bit. no big deal. thanks for the kindness. i'll be back. omgah. i'm overwhelmed. wow. 'kay. i'm done. okay bye. no really.

Rasha @ and this is what she said... said...

Thanks for the post! Im a new follower now.

Love this. I just moved in with my boyfriend too and def. is nice. Great post.

Leah said...

Hi Chelsea! It's my first time here and I totally love how you write.

Who fixed myself? I did. I've been married for quite some time and I realized after more than a decade of being married, that nobody can fix me but myself. And I did it. My kids are instrumental too... they gave me the purpose.

I'll be following you Chelsea... keep writing and post some pics of your place.

Katelin said...

aw yay that is so exciting, the fix up and the move all together. i can definitely say that matt has been the one to fix me too, in a good way of course.

AVY said...

Just myself...

Jill said...

Love your voice!

I still wrestle with the idea of co-habitation, mostly because I'm a bona fide commitment-phobe. But good on ya for taking the leap.

And you're the best thing to happen to my "Blogs I'm Following" list in a long time!

Bayjb said...

Can't wait to see pictures of this place! And I'm glad you both worked through this together. I am so not that patient.

Kennedy said...

hahahahahhahahahaha oh wow, this is the best blog entry ive seen in a Very long time.

French lover said...

Thanks for stopping by on our little blog ! Yours is lovely !

Brooke said...

Lovesssss it! The boyf helped "fix" me by making me realize that I do, in fact, need people to lean on from time to time and to make my life fuller. Oh and that I'm capable of being totally loveable. For years, I thought I was just a cold-hearted bitch. Good news, I'm not!

Ambs said...

FINALLY ANOTHER GOLDEN GIRLS WATCHER!!

Bird Trouble said...

Oh man, I wish I made a post from the first month of me and my boyfriend living together.

We basically fixed each other though because now, we're kind of done with the bickering but I'm still at that "stop-snuggling-me-I'm-trying-to-sleep" part. Then again, it has been 3 years. But we did save each other.

Shandal said...

This is a really great post. I really like the message, it's really sweet.
I tried to send you an email back to reply to the comment you left me but it came back saying it's undeliverable. I just wanted to thank you for the encouragement and for coming by and dropping a line. Hope to see you back soon!

bananas. said...

oh i don't need no fixing. boy loves me, faults and all!

haha. no but really, he's helped with my impatience, my tendency to over think things and my super ability to hold a grudge.

The Socialite said...

Hmm...my fiance has helped "fix me" or made "minor to big repairs". We finally moved in over summer and it's been an adventure although not too surprises...we've been together for almost 6 yrs, so BIG surprises are rare! Luckily he always leaves the seat down! :)

Amber said...

This post literally made me cry. I'm so happy for you! and also a little jealous. I hope I get to see your newly fixed place when I'm home! :)

nicoleantoinette said...

I'm having the biggest "should I just say fuck it?" moment lately. Which means I should be calling you back and not commenting here.

Also? "Well, make better suggestions." Yes, just yes.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

amber- i miss you and cant wait for you to get home asap.

nicole- FUCK MAN. We need to stop with this phone tag biz. I'm picking up doni from the airport in the morning...i'm calling you and wkaing your ass up on my drive there.

Anonymous said...

There is, of course, an old saying "Never look a gift horse, in the mouth". Hopefully, your Grandpa Jerry doesn't read your blogs. But, it sounds wonderful. Hope they aren't charging too much, if you had to pay for this re-make and the clean-up ,from old people smoking!!!Hell, Obama smokes!!I wonder if his smoke is that annoying>? LOL! But, seriously, don't be so darn hard on the old man. Everyone smoked in their day, even pregnant women.Their own Mothers, and possibly yours !!!!It wasn't dangerous in the days of old, just classy.

Jenna said...

Uh, I love your blog. It brings me great joy hahah.

Anonymous said...

Well, the guy who fixed me up, is now my husband of almost 30 yrs. He told me that I didn't need fixin' ,he loved me just the way I am! And, I got over all of the past abuses, and learned to love myself, and feel happy that I found someone worthy! I hope this guy is that one, for you! You go girl!

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

anonymous- smoking doesnt bother me- i smoke from time to time, no worries there...it's when its in your home when you're sleeping and you're a singer and wake up and your throat is itchy.....that's not bueno. I DONT MIND SMOKING, I DONT CARE WHO SMOKES, SMOKE ALL YOU WANT....! no worries there, just isn't too fun if you're living in it!


is this granny or jerry writing this comment? lol. no need to post anonymously is so lol!

Ruta said...

Haha, this post was amazing. Glad you commented on my blog, giving me the chance to read yours. :)

Wow, I looove your blog! You should totally be a writer - you're so funny!

Reading the thing about bounty hunters made me laugh...you would really like the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich...check it out...she'll make you pee your pants laughing!

Elizabeth Marie said...

I'm on a single journey. I'm fixing myself but I look forward to a time when I have someone to help me out, to be better for them...

Mara said...

haha well that's great you guys could do it! My mom always says "it just needs some elbow grease." I always hated her saying that though haha

hannah elizabeth said...

i love doing home makeovers! it's really hard work but when you get into it it's so gratifying.

ps i love your description of couples living together...

Lace said...

It amazes me every time you manage to write something beautiful and use the words "shit" & "fuck" in it. AMAZING, lady... seriously. Love it!

Hey! First of all, thanks for the comment on my page :)
Second, very nice post you have!
I've been together with my bf since 1 year ago and we've lived together from the beginning, so I know that wonderful feeling when you're doing stuff together and when you are able to get over the day because you help each other.

We are lucky ;)

kiss!

Holy shit... I think I've just found my long-lost sister. Reading through your blog has me in fits of laughter, and constant thoughts of "OhmyGod, ME TOO!" (Funny... I refer to my fabulous boyfriend as 'Love' as well...)
You've definitely gained a new reader here, and I hope you stop by my little corner o' the blog world again soon! :)

Valerie said...

What a hilarious post! You definitely deserve that book deal!

Laura said...

You are on a "GET ON IT" kick this week aren't you? And I totally agree with you. Nothing like bonding over home improvement projects/disastors and yes, living with someone is a constant fix up project as well. It never ends.

jayme said...

you totally fixed me with this amazing post!
gah, you are so talented and i loooove reading everything you write! it's one of the best parts of my day to read your writing.

Shrimp Salad Circus said...

How much do I freaking love your writing style?!? Epic! First of all, we need pictures of this lovely new abode, and secondly - I love your question! My guy has 'fixed me.' He's always around for my emotional disasters, and we've gotten through a lot of transitional periods together.

repliderium.com said...

Enjoy it- as soon as I got over the "OH MY GOD HE'S TOUCHING MY SHIT" and "EWWWW! DON'T YOU FUCKING DARE USE A DISHCLOTH FOR THAT!!!" I've loved every second of it.

Sassy Chica said...

So happy "Operation Fix this Shit up", was a success!! I also say when in doubt F'it...sometimes it's just so much easier that way!!

I love your writing style and your blog!!!

Wishing you and your hunny happy dweling, it's tough, but sometimes the making up is so worth it, wink, wink:)

Smooches,
Sassy Chica

missy. said...

ooohh so cute. :) glad you made the big step and moved in together.

cleaning up sounds like a good way to bond. i am an avid cleaner when it comes to stress relieving so i could only imagine my future mr. trying to clean up a house with.. someone better be ready for a whole lotta shit to go down.

Hi Chelsea, thanks for stopping by and hope to blog chat again soon.

It's a process - love, life, discovery. My husband has definitely helped and "fixed" me. Of course it's also about willingness to accept and be fixed. Hope the home turns out how you envision it. :)

Sher said...

This is so cute! I can't wait to be married to my bf and fix things up together haha:)

Sizzle said...

Now that's the good stuff right there.

I love that you tell him to make better suggestions. Ha. :-)

mepsipax said...

Good post. The Dr. Fixed me. They said no one would notice. :D

hannahjustbreathe said...

Umm...yeahhh...soooo... This post just warmed my heart. Made me feel all sentimental and romantic and gushy.

I don't know if that was quite the point of it all. But, it's what happened nonetheless.

And sometimes, we just gotta take what we're given, right?

Kristin said...

Building a home together is SO incredibly bonding. We bought our first house when I was 8 months preggers. Watching the hubs work like crazy to get it ready for our bambino made me fall in love with him even more!

Niki B. said...

this is such a good post. you really should get some sort of carrie bradshaw column

Ahhh! Domestic Bliss! It only gets worse...or better...depending on how you look at it ;)

Wow...that is all I can say to your writing, I love it so much! It's so real and sweet and has just the perfect amount of vulgar (:

Erin said...

I love the non-bullshit reality you provide for us. This was an entry that should sit in the "My Boyfriend is really moving in with me" normal ,human, real approach to making it work.. Love it. Thank You

Mo said...

that post was awesome. Made me laugh, and also...i found myself in there... i moved in w/ my bf 3 months ago..ok guess it doesn't really count since he now found a job 500km from here and comes home only on weekends but still...

chicknamedhermia said...

Lol awh!!! Yeah I'm starting my third month of living with The Boy and yes, I've done the toilet seat thing, and yes, he's done the Why do you have so much stuff thing, and I've done the Wash the frickin dishes cos I'm not your MOTHER, and he's done the Well I was tiiiiired, when I have an early-rising-late-home job and then must make dinner .....it's totally amazing though, 85% of the time, lol!

Genie of the Shell said...

Beautiful metaphor! Dreams of living spaces are also supposed to symbolize your life, so they say.

My man and I definitely "fixed" each other. Yes, it can be done, but it has to be just the right time and just the right two people to make it work.

We had known each other for years before we hooked up. He was too directionless and hard-partying for me. I often called him just to see if he was still alive.

Then, toward the end of college, we both found ourselves single at the same time for the first time in six years or so. We had both jumped the tracks of our old lifelines. I had dumped my ivy league boyfriend of three years and all my plans of West Coast grad school and yuppie-hood. Mr. G had discovered the discipline of cycling, rinsed out the years of drug abuse, got healthy and fit, and secured a good job.

There had been sexual tension and star-crossed love bullshit going on between us for years and years, so it was no surprise to our friends when we got together. I helped him stay clean, sober, and healthy, which he had already started on his own. He helped me learn to relax and have fun and take life as it comes... and stop being such an uppity bitch.

Five years later, we are both infinitely better people together than we were as "just friends." One of my college roommates remarked when we got together, "You are each other's antidotes." True story! And we lived happily ever after...

Oh, and he gives really good massages. Yeah, I totally recommend asking for one for Christmas. ;) Bonus points if it's in front of a fire. A large, hazardous heap of candles works in a pinch! It's good to be shacked up snug and cozy with your lovebug during the holidays, regardless of dishwashing habits.

A Thought Is The Blossom said...

this was a fucking FANTASTIC read. my boyfriend and i started out as roommates (strictly friends, promise!) for two years before falling in love and ditching his bed for mine. kinda a weird situation, but yes we've definitely had our "fixing" each other moments!

best of luck to you on this new journey.

Jamie said...

hey missy! i used to read your blog a LONG TIME AGO & am just finding you again! yay!!

michelle said...

soooo i haven't been reading your blog long, but i chose you for a little award. just my way of saying thanks for being hilariously awesome. your blog always makes me :)

Bahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Life = MADE.

abigail said...

"Make better suggestions" = perfect.

congratulations on your fix up. post photos!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Congrats on moving in. ;) And yes, cleaning, fixing up, moving furniture, or doing any chore whatsoever is always one million percent more fun when it's done with your man. Hehe.
And the comfort of knowing he is right there with you at night...sigh. This post brought back such wonderful memories of my first-moving-in-with-boyfriend a year ago. :P

Anyway good lucking fixing the rest of the place up and on the move and everything! Sounds like you're a busy girl.

Oh, and what fixes me? I'd say gin but I don't want to sound like an alchie. Oh fuck it. Gin.

Hawa said...

i'm too stubborn to be fixed....i like being damaged goods and i hate the idea of anyone trying to alter that in me....some lovely metaphors in this post!

SassyGirl said...

Congratulations! You guys must have felt so good fixing everything up, together.
Love to hear more about the small details you're discovering about each other now that you're living together. I'm going to be writing an entry about "the truth about men and women", will let you know when it's up!
