Sick, and Dying Mish Mosh Monday
The bad thing is we were both sick and cranky at the same time. The good thing is we were both too tired to yell and even if we wanted to, our throats wouldn't let us. The best we could do was muster a dirty look or two.
After searching many different stores, we decided that we liked the clearance section of one of the super posh stores I have been posting pictures of. Note to self, just stay out of those stores.
Right before we bought the slightly chipped furniture, Den realized that it was particle board and not well made. It was the only set that we both liked and was small enough for the room. We had decided that it was alright to buy a new set because well, we couldn't find anything used for the last few months and we keep our furniture forever. Den said it was an investment and would be with us til we died.
I wasn't real happy with the thought of having to start our search all over again. We are pushing me out of my comfort zone. We are going to have company for Thanksgiving and I have a trashed room and nowhere for Anna to sleep. I have issues, oh and I don't like to spend money.
I have also learned that finding a bedroom set with a full headboard is a problem. I guess full sized beds are now only for kid's rooms. And I wasn't willing to buy purple furniture.
We ended up buying a simple set from Steinhafels. This is as posh as it gets around here. I hate parting with money but the quality is amazing and I'll leave it in the will for one of the kids. It will be with us for a while.
I'm just glad this weekend is over, its going in the failure column.
