I've been in a bad mood. I'm not entirely sure why, but part of it has to do with the fact that we don't have a couch. Let me back up-- we got rid of our couch.
One day our remote control fell into the middle hollow center of the sofa (this sofa I speak of was not of the highest quality, obviously, what with its hollow center and all) and when I reached in to get it out, I came back with a swelling itchy face and unstoppable sneezing. We had been having allergy symptoms for a couple months and had not been able to pinpoint where they were coming from. The whole inside of the couch was... I don't know. I don't know exactly what. But it made my eyes swell up. So we got rid of it.
I can't control very much in life, but gosh darn it-- I can usually control my living room. It's the room that is almost always clean and my brain just works best in a clean room.
Without that couch I am feeling incomplete! Lost! Disorganized!
Also, it hurts to watch movies when you have to sit on the floor.
We have a budget of $0 and the sofa I want is a floor model regularly priced $2200 and on clearance for $1500... $1500! A steal! Totally worth wasting my time thinking about!
Praying my trusty Salvation Army Super Family Center Deluxe will turn up something cheap and clean and cute enough to get us through for awhile.
And I'm taking any other suggestions. Or free sofas.
