The New Couch

There it is. There's our new couch. It's not all that exciting, but it's new and it's way comfortable. So of course we love it. It makes me fall asleep! Our last couch did not make me fall asleep. It made noises cuz it was pleather and it was falling to pieces. 

So one night we were sitting on our shamble couch and we thought the dumbest thought about couches (second dumbest following the pleather couch) in the history of time. 

Instead of having a friend come over with a truck and take it to a dumpster, let's rip the couch to shreds. Destroy the couch and put it in the dumpster. Obvious choice! Yes. But that's not the only brilliant decision we made. We both enthusiastically agreed that destroying the couch a week before we get our new couch would be super smart. Our logic was, for a week we'd have so much room. We'd love it. We could just bask in the glory of floor space. We'd sit on the floor and it would be fine for a week. And a week would be the perfect amount of time to not care about all of our new found space, because we'd want to sit on a couch. So we'd be willing to lose space again.

Foolish! All of it. Why were we trying to mess with our own minds? Also, couch destruction took an entire Saturday. Hours and hours of couch destruction. At first it was a blast. The it was exhausting and there was no end to this thing! Sure I had a good time dancing around the couchless living room. I can admit that. Was it worth having to sit on the floor? I just don't know. 

What I do know is that we have a couch now and it's pretty amazing. 

Because I just wrote a post about our new couch and expect anyone to care to read it, here's a picture of Baby William and Luke Skywalker the kitten.

Yeah, we tried the destroy the couch thing too and were gravely disappointed. Did you try to saw yours? We did. It didn't work out the way we planned. Also- Luke Skywalker is one brave kitten. Jon would have been all over a kitten in a pack'n play.

YES! We tried a saw. For the most part we had to pry all the pieces apart. What compels us? Whatever it is strong in us just like the force is strong in little Luke Skywalker.

He Jedi mind tricks William into not caring a kitten is in his crib. Will put him in there and I thought little William would pounce on him. That's what Tori and Alyssa always did. Nah, he didn't care. After Will left I had to take him out though. It was just making me too nervous.

i love that baby william is way more concerned about the crazy behind the camera than he is about the young jedi.

New couches are soo weird to shop for. There were so many choices and all that sitting on couches with other strangers sitting on couches is nuts. And everyone wants to help. There's no helping someone! It's up to their butts so let them sit in peace.

Not only is baby William thinking I'm a loon, even little Luke Skywalker is wondering what my problem is.

Your new couch is beautiful. I want one that has that extension (or whatever it is) so you can put your legs up.

Currently, I'm sitting on my parents 1980-something wedding present of a couch, being jealous.

hows the cat with scratching furniture..? that looks like e very smart choice for a new couch, and cool picture of the fonze above it to the rt (or elvis). also, the couch looks plugged in - is it an electrical couch?

Ben, we got the VELVIS painting for a dollar at a garage sale and sent it to kasey when she got married :)

@Gail The extension part can be switched to either side. How fun is that? Or we can take it off and just have a regular couch is one day we decide we hate relaxing.

@Ben So far so good with the couch and cat scratching. The couch is 100% polyester. Luxurious. We also got it treated with, I don't know what. So we can vomit and crap all over this thing if we want! It will clean right up. I wish the couch had something electric going on with it. I love electronics! That used to be hooked up to our old table. It had a light in it, but now we just leave it there in it's bright orange glory to plug all of our gadgets into. We're living table free.

YES! That's our Velvis from Gary! He's crying.
