At last our butts will be happy...

We ordered this couch about 8 weeks ago, and every night since then we have raised a chorus of, "oh, woe is us, when will our new couch come?" The 'woe is us' part was due to the sharp springs and hard boards pushing up into the flesh of our rumps. But now? Well, now we have very large, very soft cushions under our rumps. It is wonderful.


It's quite hard to choose a fabric based on a tiny swatch. While I love this fabric, I'm not head-over-heels for it on our couch or in our room. It isn't quite as blue as I expected, and the pattern makes it hard to see the cute little buttons on the back. I'm thinking of adding a blue throw blanket to the back to bring out the blue a bit more.

Oh well. Whatever my misgivings, this is a great couch, especially when compared to the beastly old couch that we put out on the curb. The old couch was out there for about an hour and a half before a skinny dude hefted it up onto his back and put it into the back of his pick-up. By himself! What a stud. I'm afraid Mr. Stud won't be so happy when he gets it home and sits on it. Then it will probably go out on his curb.

So long, old couch. You served us well.

Hello, new couch. Welcome. We have two little boys, you know, so you may have a hard life. Be strong. You will be loved.
