Just knowing you’re here with me now changes everything
Cause sometimes you just need to write a song about chipped finger nail polish.
I had two disgusting, stinking couches. I was so tired of our dogs sitting on them. Furring them. Stinking them. Then me vacuuming them. Cussing them. Sweating because of them. It was getting to be too much of a waste of time. So…
I gave them away.
Did I have a back up plan?
Did I care?
A little bit. Mostly because my husband was all “Where’my gonna sit?”
I reassured him that chairs and beds were just as good for sitting and laying, and I didn’t have to do breathing exercises because of anxiety everytime I looked at them…so there.
Two lovely young men took them off and then it was a brave new world of a completely empty living room.
What did we do?
Dance party, duh. So much floor space warrants only that. We put up Christmas lights and danced under them with friends.
Then 2 weeks later, out of nowhere, a couple decides that they have 3 too many couches and want to give away one. I over hear them saying that they have a leather couch. Almost new. One little tear. Perfect for NOT attracting dog hair.
Well, isn’t it funny that I just happened to be listening in?
So, I extend the information that we are actually REALLY interested in having a leather couch to sit on.
And then the gal who offered, also offers some young men to carry the couch to my house. Fortunately I didn’t have anything to move for these young moving men, save a coffee table that we had been using as a bench.
Some people say that’s the Universe. You get rid of something, and then you wait for all the stars to align and you get something else…
well, that might be true, but I really believe that the Lord actually cares about the little things…
Sometimes we hold on to things that are just “blah” and give us anxiety, because we think that we can’t do anything better…but maybe there’s something else out there that could be better. You just need to make room.
A great post about the deliberation a woman may go through before she decides she wants to have a baby. I can relate with this so much right now. I feel so happy with the way things are right now and honestly, I get so scared that having a baby will ruin my life. It’s good to remember that there’s always so much more to be learned and enjoyed in this life than I could ever know.
A good quote, “she looked to the future of a happy daughter with a happy family, growing and mixing their new traditions with the old and creating something wonderful.”
This was a blast.
