Um... so on a whim today I sold our couch. We'd been casually talking about getting a new couch for a while, but I don't think Big Smith expected me to post an add on Craig's List and I know he didn't expect that it would just suddenly be gone. I'm a bit shocked myself- but you know, it's just a couch.
Yes it was a nice quality couch, probably nicer than any we will be replacing it with... but it was old and it was black and it was leather and I just wanted a change. The guys who lugged it out of here and onto the roof of their Mini Cooper really were in love with it. I'm a sucker for 'things' finding a good home so I accepted way (way!) less than I should have and just sat back and marveled at how fast this giant, heavy sleeper sofa could be whisked out of our house and onto the curb. I think they were afraid that if they waited any longer I would get a hold of Big Smith and change my mind... and they were probably right!
So for now I dragged a futon from our work space (with Little Smith flopped down on top of it adding his 25 pounds for the ride) to fill the couch-void until we figure out what we are doing. It's kind of fun, like camping. At least that's what I'm telling myself (and my skeptical husband). Sometimes I just like to shake things up and do something different. I just hope anybody who visits us for the time being is limber and ready for a floor sit!
