We now have real furniture in the living room! More than 1 person can now sit comfortably to chat or watch TV: comfortable seating for 5!!
The Sister-Unit has been keeping an account for home improvement, and we finally had enough in it for a new sofa and loveseat. The set was delivered today, and the next time any of you come by, I'll be able to have you here without being horribly embarrassed by the tortuous daybed masquerading as a sofa and the uncomfortable Ikea chair pretending to be a... chair.
Beautiful leather recliners, soft as butter. For your comfort.
(Next, a decent refrigerator...)
