I don’t know what’s wrong with the last minute…it has always worked for me. I got through many years of school by waiting until the last minute to start a project, or study for a test.
But, don’t tell my kids I said that.
So when I got the word that my new sofa is being delivered tomorrow, I knew it was time to list the old sofa on craigslist.
I suppose, just maybe, I was overly ambitious with my expectations. When I listed my refrigerator, it was sold within the hour—in fact, I had a line of people waiting to buy it—so of course I expected the sofa to be sold before dinner.
I did get a few inquiries before bed…but hardly the cavalcade of buyers, blowing up my email and trying to be the first to take the sofa off my hands. That was what I imagined. It wasn’t how it went down. I suppose not everyone is searching for furniture on a cold Tuesday night.
If it isn’t sold by the weekend, I may have to have a garage sale. Not what I wanted to do on the weekend…even if I have no shortage of things to sell since moving. I suppose it would be a good idea. I don’t know how I still have so much stuff. I guess this is what happens when you “down size”.
In other good news…
I hate the yellow mirror I painted last night. It is too brightly colored for the muted color scheme I so meticulously created. Lucky for me I only bought a $3 sample container of yellow paint. I can paint it over with the pretty white/gray trim color. I have plenty of that.
I’d better get moving…I have a new sofa to rearrange for!
Until the next time…I’ll be waiting for Craig to sell my sofa!
