Well, a Saturday/Sunday post is a bit unusual for me. But, two reasons for this one. First, I’m a bit down for how long the blog was offline last week. I know everybody knows it was a rough week, but it’s become a habit for me. And, I’m such a creature of habit that the lack of posts disturbs me. Second, on a less OCD note, I’m stoked about the new living room arrangement.
That’s the new china cabinet and couch. We scored the china cabinet off Craig’s List for $200. The future is so strange. No looking through classifieds and driving to people’s house to check out the goods. Nope. Pick your full color photo that you like and ride out to pick it up. I didn’t even need a news paper subscription for that. Which, come to think of it, may be why news papers are failing. Which is also sad. Now I’m conflicted.
I’m going to go upstairs and sit on my new couch and gaze at the new-to-us china cabinet and reassure myself. Have a good rest of the weekend.
NOTE: Thanks to my family for rolling out to help out. My dad helped us move all the furniture and my mom and sister watched Claire while we made it happen. And while neither of those are small things, I’ll note that my dad helped out even while it was snow/raining this afternoon. So, much appreciated.
