Paying Homage To An Old Friend


Not much beats a comfortable chair! I finally got my chair. We bought it back on May 1st. Have had nothing but hassles in getting it. What a headache! We will never buy a special order piece from American Furniture Warehouse again. Customer service was terrible! Nobody knew what was going on with the order. We started calling after hearing nothing for 5 weeks… Only to be told it could be another 8 weeks. .. Just terrible service! It’s here and, it’s huge. I know what you must be thinking…it’s a freaking unmodern ugly recliner! Well sit down in this beauty and tell me it isn’t nice! Comfortable! Not going for esthetics here… This is where I navigate from… Bills get paid here, recipe sorting, meal planning and grocery lists are created while sitting in this very space. Great discussions and family meetings are conducted from this space. I needed a comfortable chair in which to park myself.

My previous recliner was 20 + years old! It was broken down and wooden parts were showing through torn fabric. I had a throw blanket over the arm to hide the wear and literal tears. It was bittersweet having to be done with the broken chair. My mother and father had sat in my chair. My mother and father would always sit in that chair when they would visit. I have fond memories of family events around and about that chair!

Saw me through a lot of great family gatherings. I rocked my Zoe and my G-kids when they were small in this

One of the last times I saw my Dad.

A lot of family history in that chair. It more than served it’s purpose! I appreciated and adored that chair and everyone who has ever sat in it. It was a great chair and I’m grateful for the time that it served. I can now retire it at the next bulk trash pick-up. I’m sorry old chair that we used you up and beat the heck out of you! You can be done now.

New friend!

The burgundy color in new chair works well for my  Feng Shui prosperity corner. I’ll let you know if it works, I could use some help in this area!

Something More Than Nothing!

Have a terrific day whatever you do! Remember that wherever you go, there you are!

I've been a stay at home Mom for many years...Have earned a PhD in life experience. My oldest is 30 and my youngest is 13. On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. Now, show me my money making niche. Still in the process of figuring that out.
