1.The official “hunt-for-a-couch” season has begun.
2.My husband and I spent hours the other day going from one place to another looking at couch contenders.
3.We’d eye up the size and style, and of course, do the all important “comfort test”.
4.We’d plunk ourselves down and wait.
5.As a 5 foot 2-er and he a 6 footer, I’d more often than not be sitting there with my feet dangling 2 inches from the floor.
6.Or, if my feet were touching the ground, the end of the cushion seat would hit him about mid-thigh.
7.About the time we were laughing ourselves silly over the fact it doesn’t seem we’ll ever both be comfy on a couch, a helpful saleperson would come up and ask so nicely if he could help.
8.I really enjoyed that part. We listened and asked questions and played real dumb.
9.The fact is, when it comes to buying a new couch…we really are dumb!
10.This is our very first rodeo in the buying-a-new couch department ~
11.And, honestly, I’m ready to jump off the bucking bronco!!
12.Mercy sakes. The choices are endless.
13.My eyes glaze over at, “You can choose from 800 fabrics”.
14.And when they start talking about financing available, I’m ready to head for the door.
15.The good news is, I found my dream couch.
16.The bad news is, I need a house twice the size to fit it in.
17.So…for now, couch shopping is put on the back burner.
18.My brain needs a break from all the decisions involved.
19.If only I could bring the top 3 contenders into my little townhouse living room and see what they looked like in the space.
20.I’m pretty sure I could decide quickly.
21.But, having to custom order? Oh, Nellie…
22. So, I’ve decided to keep on loving our dear old couch for now, and instead start thinking about Christmas decorating.
23.I’ve set a goal for myself that before I pull out Christmas, I must first finish unpacking all. the. boxes.
24. I’m down to the final 4.
25. Woo Hoo!! If things go well, there might be a few twinkly lights around here tonight ~
They’ll help disguise my sad, out-dated couch!
