Furniture Drama (Part 2)


Dear Love,

The problem wasn't necessarily that I brought a big piece of free furniture home.  Did I mention it was FREE?  It was that I-had-a-habit-of-doing-this-and-we-have-no-room-and-we-don't-know-where-we'll be-in-a-year-and-I need-to-stop-bringing-junk-home-even-if-it-is-cheap/free-and-I-think-I-want/need-it- really-bad...yada-yada.  

Once the men got the furniture inside the house not much was said about it for awhile.  After what seemed like forever we kissed and made up and I was so happy to hear you say the beast was "kind of cool".  

Once I heard that I knew I was in the safe zone and I began to tell you my grand plans, to which you expounded on them and added your own touch of greatness.

I'm so glad Spring Break is next week so I can get busy sanding, painting, gluing and building.  

Oh my darling dearest, this is going to be one killer beast!

Love, Me
