Or not.

Okay, so I'll do the next First Tuesday at MIFF.

On account of the rest of my week is booked, so tonight is the only time I have to help get the place straightened up in preparation for delivery of NEW COUCH YAY!

It is purty and sectional and cornery and did I mention NEW?

I want a new sofa, except that I don't.

I want a new sofa because the old one has the front of one arm completely shredded by the senior cat (who got to it during the halcyon days when I was convinced she never clawed the furniture, stoopid me) and it's Nondescript Modern and very boring.

I don't want a new sofa because the old one has recliner sections which are so very comfortable; it's unlikely that I'd find another sofa with that feature in any other style than Nondescript Modern.

Ours is from La-Z-Boy and probably fits the Nondescript Modern category. But it is also comfy as all get-out, which was the primary priority, aside from being a corner unit. We currently have a regular couch placed diagonally across the corner, so this will nearly double the available seating. Plus it has a sleeper, and one of the seats has drawers in the base and a flip-down table thingie (we both think consoles look tacky, but this provides the option of that utility), nice tall seat backs, and conservation of recliners.

Also, their stuff lasts forever. We have a La-Z-Boy rocker-recliner that you would never guess is 20 years old.

Especially when it's been put off for a while. :-) We've been talking about it on and off for a couple years, and finally went hunting in earnest.

Could be.

Yours is red, ours is blue. If somebody chimes in with gold, we may have blown up Krypton.

Ooh, it looks like it'll be great to fall asleep on! Congrats. I love new furniture, but I'm not buying one more house thing until the monster puppy quits chewing stuff, and the cat quits barfing every time she eats!

*rueful chuckle* Yeah, that'd do it. Before we lost Diablo, he was doing all his yakking on the carpet. But he had balance issues toward the end of his life, and pretty much had his claws out every time he tried to walk. That was part of the reason we put off the couch hunt.

No plans for more pets in the immediate future, though, so anything that happens to this couch is our own fault!
