They did what?!

Yes, that's right. My friendly maintenance man in our apartment complex gave me about a third of a mason jar full of paint. So, just in case we happen to bang a dent in our wall, we can simply paint over the damage and voila! we have a perfect wall again. And, this was with the management's approval. Awesome, huh!?

Tonight we spent about two and a half hours shopping in one store for a dresser, a bookshelf and a coffee table. But you know what the worst part was? We found items that would work for each thing we needed...but didn't end up buying anything. Ugh! My husband decided he wanted to sleep on it, because he'd been overloaded with information and choices.

So, I guess that means that I have twenty-four hours to bend him to my will!

We went to several stores before entering the American Furniture Warehouse. It was immense, and we got lost several times. I think that it would take an average of 10 minutes just to walk straight through, not even looking at the furniture! And, of course, it has two floors, the top floor larger and more massive than the lower.

When we first entered the store, my husband startled me by half-yelling out, "Damn radio!" Oh-kay...I'm thinking he's hearing voices in his head and he's mad about it. Great. That's what I get for marrying an older man (well, he is 35!).

Well, apparently, he was able to hear the radio announcer tell the scores of the women's match at Wimbeldon, which he had Tivo'd and was planning on watching once we got home. Guess what I didn't have to sit through tonight? :-)

Overall, it was a good shopping day. I found an awesome bookshelf that I want for $129, a great coffee table that I want for $179 (the Robinson's May was selling the EXACT same model for $450- on sale!), and a pine dresser set for $299. And the company will deliver for 6%. Sold!

Well, I'll post an update after the purchase. More later from the front range. Dawn

Hi Ilva, it's nice to hear from you again. You must have seen me on bloglines! I'll be posting on this site from now on, so this is the one to get the feed from. I'll have to come get caught up with you soon...things are beginning to slow down after around move. I stopped the new format of your blog. Of course, the photos were wonderful, but I have lots to catch up on!
