it was 89* and so humid that my hair immediately sprung out all over my head like a fright wig. I look so cute (not.)
We need to replace a 33 year old couch and the space available needs to be planned carefully. We have a couch, and 2 recliners, and it would be so much better for the arrangement of the room if we had a love seat and a side chair - something trim and not taking up too much space. A tall order, I am discovering.
If I like the style of a piece, it doesn't come in a love seat - or the available fabrics are not the colors I need. We bought a rug a year ago; heavily patterned and colorful (browns, tans, blues and celery greens.) I would prefer a blue to match one of the colors in the rug. My baby daughter thinks the fabric I like is too dark, but I like to minimize the inevitability of spots and spills, and a darker fabric will do that. She thinks I ought to have leather - but we already have a leather recliner and it is hard to match the colors and styles. What to do?
If I had won the lottery, I'd start over and choose a rug and furniture to match at the same time, making life easier. But we have not won (you have to play to win, I hear) and I can't start over with all new stuff.
Shopping is hard on me; walking all over large furniture stores is so tiring, even though I can sit down as much as I want and test out the wares. Maybe I'll go back to the drawing board an check a few more stores this week. I don't know how long Memorial Day sales will last - but I hope they don't cancel them after Monday. Oh, it is always something, Isn't it?
