tuesday just tuesday

it has been a good day. we went and talked with some guys that do furniture restoration. i forgot to mention the 1200 dollar leather couch we ordered came in before we left for vacation and it was ripped at the seams!! no kidding.

so we were weighing our options on what to do, my opinion is this get our money back while the offer is still on the table from the crap we bought then go to haverty's and buy the leather hard wood framed kiln dried, eight way hand tied construction couch for 1600. Wes does not want to go that route and i don't know why but i said lets just get our money back and sit on bean bags until we figure it out. i am serious. he promised we will take it back on friday. yeah!!!

in the meantime the guys we talked to showed us some old couch frames and they were all solid hard wood construction but nothing else. the first guy gave us a quote of 1200 to redo a couch that he had. the other place in town was very similar to the first. this was very inciting to us, except for the wait, it will take 4 to 6 weeks for the finished product. now if we go to havery's we spend the same amount and get it now, me being the addict that i am well i want what i want when i want it.

i told wes i thought both guys were very reasonable but the next step of course would be to hit an estate sale and look for a couch that is 30 years old or more, anything newer is nothing but shoddy workmanship and it is all from china.

so i am on pins and needles because i am curious what we, i mean wes, will decide, one thing is for sure... this crap we bought is going back on friday. period. if he wants to wait for something else that is fine with me i just want our money back.

i am hitting a meeting in about an hour and i need to finish my dishes.

todays thought: There are only 3 motivating factors that change human behavior; pain, fear or ambition.


i think i am feeling a little ambitious today!!

I am sure that there will be a solution. We have sold our souls to the Chinese.
