Maybe a thank you is in order?

As much as I have hated all this experience, maybe I will have to say thank you at some point....


These are the Evil Twins. They like to attack people and things. They have even hit me on the head! I will be oh so glad to finally get rid of them....
After a bit, sitting with the leg straight out is tiring. So I prop the leg, and the boot, here on my foot thing (we have a recliner/sofa).

Look what it - combined with the velcro straps getting caught - has done to this!
So okay, I have been wanting new furniture for some time. Hubby's matching recliner really needs replacing. Not only do I hate paying for it all - I really hate trying to find something and deciding on it! 9 times out of 10, what I liked in the showroom, I hate when I get it home in my house (including this set!).
This time out I think I am going for a love seat and two matching chairs.

Went to a warehouse sale for a very high end (AKA over priced) company a couple weekends ago. I was appalled at what they had for sale! All of their couches looked like they came out of a house full of unsupervised teen aged boys! And the "sales" price was wayyyyyyyy more than I would have paid for brand new furniture!
So, if anyone has any suggestions, I am open for them!

When we added on to the house, we bought two oversized chairs . . . bigger than a regular chair, smaller than a love seat. One of which came with a huge ottoman. Seriously, huge. My 8 year old can slide under it.

We just bought a new couch. Hideous. I hate couches but couldn't convince my hubby that he could live without it. Therefore, we now have a new couch and the only upside was that we only paid $300 for it. It is sad that we both decided that at that price, we didn't care if it only lasted a couple of years. And, actually, the fabric is guaranteed for six years, including cleaning.
