It's Here!!!!!!

After putting the former furniture on craigslist for $100 and getting several responses (one of whom stood me up, one who backed out at the last minute b/c of pets, and two porn responses - WTF?!?!), we decided to let a young couple getting their first house have them for free. They were supposed to buy them a week ago, and the girl called me in tears the day they were supposed to come because she'd had a car accident and the WV police copied their license plate wrong and arrested her husband thinking he was the owner of another car who apparently has drug charges pending (read: don't go to WV on a Friday night!). By the time we talked the next day, he was free and the MD police had straightened things out, but they were still needing to retain a lawyer to get the auto impound fee and his record cleared. After that call, DH and I decided that they needed furniture a lot more than we needed the money, which was really only to cover the delivery charges on our new stuff, anyway, so we called her back and told her to just come and get it, which she did a little while ago, in tears again (but in a good way), using the husband's work truck and his boss as an extra set of hands.

Just to remind you, today I went from this:


to this:



to THIS!!!!!


There's about two feet between the back of the couch and the double doors, so there's plenty of room to RECLINE in all four end seats (yahoo!!!) We have lots and lots of room now, so anyone who wants to join me in making a *serious* asspotatoprint via long and careful lounging, the line forms here! :)
