Woo hoo!

We have ordered a sofa! A real, actual new piece of furniture that is not crippling to sit on for long periods of time!

This afternoon we stopped at every store along Athens's "furniture row" and sat on many, many sofas. The one we chose was one of the very few that we liked. It was cushy and perfect for napping or watching TV. It was free of weird doohickeys such as lumpy arms or giant decorative nails or rumpled skirts. I was surprised at how many sofas I found offensive, either because of their stiffness or because of their dowdy appearance.

There was a red sectional I loved too, but it would have taken over our living room completely. The sofa we chose (in mocha, if you care to know) is perfect.

They claim it will be delivered Wednesday. Can't wait!

P.S. We anticipate defying the laws of mathematics because our sofa is already built and sitting in a nearby warehouse.
