Grownup Shopping

I did it. Last night I drove to Value City Furniture and bought a sofa, loveseat, mission style bed and mirrored dresser. It has been almost 4 years since I added real furniture to my home. The last purchases, a beautiful red chair-and-a-half sleeper, matching ottoman, and a bobinizer (the best thing ever invented, check it out at were part of my attempt to distance myself from college living. Now that I am roommate-less, I have a lot of catching up to do. I have been roommate-less for about 18 months now, but have not had a need for a furniture upgrade. When E & J come to visit I give them my bed and I take the twin sleeper. But they only stay for a night or two. This Christmas my parents are coming. If you've ever seen daddy you know there is no way all 3 of us can sit on the big red chair to watch some TV! Assuming that I don't have the same delivery problems that I had with my movers--3 weeks of promised delivery when my stuff wasn't even on the truck!--I get my grownup furniture on Tuesday. The only problem is that I now have to spend Saturday night and Sunday doing some much needed cleaning in my apartment. There is very little out there that I dislike more than housework.

yeah! furniture! congrats! It feels so good to have "real" furniture, doesn't it? It took us a full year to get sofas... but, oh it was worth it. :-)
