Today was Copper’s day off. It’s been quite a long while since he’s been home with us on a Monday. All of the overtime he’s been working has been directed toward some needful things in and around our home.
Our big couch was in fairly good shape, the love seat only in fair shape, and my husband’s chair and ottoman…..well, let’s just say he was in grave danger every time he chose to sit down in that chair. I was sure he would sit down one day and end up in the middle of a pile of wood, foam and upholstery fabric.
We spent an entire day furniture shopping a few weeks ago, just to see what was out there and what we wanted and what fit into our budget. God blessed us not only with the overtime to buy some new things, but also timed a “we’ll pay the sales tax” sale with a great deal for paying in cash.
This morning, the guys took all the old pieces of furniture out to the driveway, and moved the coffee and end tables out of the way. Dani vacuumed the almost empty room.
Yep, it’s red! I love it! We’re still playing around with furniture placement. The guys have settled in to play some games this afternoon, though, so things will stay where they are for now.
It was great to have my husband home for the day. He’s been working hours and hours of overtime, and I am so grateful for his working so hard to provide for his family. I know he’ll appreciate being able to sit in his new recliner in the evenings to relax without worrying if he’ll wind up on the floor!
