out with the old

Well, it's been two days with the new sofa, and I'm still in love. 

I don't think I've ever had such a good feeling about a piece of furniture before...and I love furniture.  I have loved the Restoration Hardware sofa since I first saw it back in 2003, and I have been dreaming of the day it would be in my very own house.  Thanks to the Comfortable Couch Company, my dream has finally come true!  I would have never been able to live with myself if I had paid the ridiculous price for the original sofa, but at almost half the cost (in no small part due to my "mad" negotiation skills) how could I say no? 

In fact, my entire house is in love with the new sofa.  I don't think I've seen the kids spending as much time in the living room since they were little.  I'm not complaining at all. 

But, I do have a little predicament.

I have an extra sofa that needs a new home.  This is where "craig" comes in.  I listed the sofa with craigslist a few days ago, and finally, I have a line of people waiting to come see it.  I need to wake up early tomorrow to begin the viewings. 

But not until we move the sofa out onto the back deck.  It is currently taking up residence in my bedroom and my husband does not want strangers in our bedroom looking at a sofa.  So out on the deck it goes!  Thank goodness the weather report is calling for sunny skies!

I guess I'd better get to bed before it gets too late.  I'm not a morning person...even now that I have my new sofa.  I could get used to being a late night couch potato, though.  That doesn't sound half bad at all!

Until the next time...I'll be selling my sofa to the highest bidder!
