It's official: Jinxing is real

You know how I said in my last post that I might be jinxing myself? Well, it's Monday and I'm STILL feeling under the weather. I spent just about the whole weekend in a reclined position. This cold is really tenacious. Bah.

In other news, we spontaneously bought a new sofa this weekend. We've been watching TV in La-Z-Boy recliners, separated by an end table. This seemed like a good idea when we bought them, but I missed being able to snuggle while watching TV. Kenneth's recliner is getting a little threadbare after nearly 5 years, so we felt semi justified in replacing it. Mine, well, it's still doing OK. But you can't just replace half of a pair of La-Z-Boys - it would look funny. So we went to the La-Z-Boy store and bought a sofa. It's a 3-seater, and the back of the middle seat folds down to form a table with cup-holders. It's ideal. Put the table down when you want to sit using the recliners (both ends of the sofa recline) and have your beverage handy. Put the table up when you want to snuggle or lie on the couch, or if you have a 3rd person who wants to watch TV with you. I'm excited! We got a discount, because they had accidentally ordered the wrong fabric on a sofa in the model we wanted, and they couldn't sell it to the person who had ordered it (because they wanted a different fabric). We're not in love with the fabric, but it's neutral and will be fine. We looked through their big books o' fabric, but nothing really grabbed us as being "that perfect fabric". So we decided to go for the discount and the instant gratification.
