And, In Other News, We Have A New Sofa

It finally happened. We found a sofa that fit our needs, wasn't ridiculously priced and we'd be able to pay off in less than 6 months. It seems almost surreal. A new sofa. It's comfortable. Very comfortable. Pillowed arm rests. And, we decided to go with the 2 cushioned model. Full chaise recliners. If we're both reclined, there will be no space between the 2 extensions. This is a plus because of the kids. More room.

Our old sofa will be loaded onto a pickup truck on Thursday. On Friday, a week from today, our new sofa will be delivered. 

Now that it's official, I'm feeling a little sad. The last week with Ol' Bessie. She's been in our family since 1994. Ol' Bessie was durable and lasted throughout the wears despite wear and tear, two moves and several shifts from one side of the living room to the other and back again. I don't know what my parents paid for the 3 piece living room set, but they got their moneys worth.

I wonder how long my father kept the reclining chair and love seat after the divorce.

Although Ol' Bessie has provided us with lots of family snuggle time, movie nights, work time, book time, naps, etc, it's time. There is no more life in Ol' Bessie.

I've got a week left to enjoy her and I will...
