I get excited over the simplest things sometimes. I'm not sure if it's sad or uplifting! I ordered the entry-way bench I saw at K-Mart last night, threw in 4 tops, 2 sweaters, a skirt, and a velour jacket for ridiculously low prices, added a Brita faucet filter (also on sale) since I am sick and tired of nobody filling up the pitcher and somehow or other managed to get free shipping on the whole lot. I really wanted the bench because I'm also sick and tired of coats, shoes, and backpacks strewn about my living room. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how to get it home, though (Ha to my children! Another reason why I need a van!), since when I looked on-line last night I was unable to find it. I don't know what possessed me to look again, but I'm glad I did.
Now the only challenge will be actually putting the thing together. I should manage to get to it fairly quickly, though, since it is an additional not a replacement and so won't require cleaning anything off first. Unlike the computer desk I bought a year ago, that still sits in it's box propped up against my kitchen counter. That box has come in handy, though. The cats have been using it as a scratching post. If I ever do manage to get the thing put together I imagine they will have to start scratching up the furniture again. Oh, who am I kidding, they scratch the furniture anyway.
