New Addition To The Family
After watching the recent UFC with several friends (who didn't spill wine this time), I came to the conclusion my brown sofa was getting lonely. Sure it has a rattan to it's left but that's like putting a cat and a dog together... sure they can get along over time but there is an unstated yet understood resentment by the rattan. I have been thinking about getting a loveseat (still don't understand why they named it that unless you have to be "in love" to sit that close together) but knew I wasn't going to 1) find one that matches the sofa 2) find money under my pillow to replace both with something new and 3) find something as comfortable as the sofa. So I have had it in my mind to get something for awhile. I've been keeping my eye on the furniture section on Craigslist for one and on Saturday... it pops up. I didn't catch it until Sunday morning and I sent off an email. I find out that 2 other people plan to pick it up and she will sell it to the first one there when she got home from work on Monday at 5:30pm. I told her that I'll be waiting there for her. hahaha And that I did. I took a break from the newsletter, waited there, paid her, put it on my Rodeo by myself and set it up in the house where it is in the picture. Then, I got back to work. Sure it isn't the same color as the other one but it's as soft, fits the earth-tone motif and only cost $25. hahaha Btw, if you look closely you can see my collection of remote controls and a bowl of jellybeans.
