*I sewed this patch on to my daughter’s oversized army jacket and Tom asked why it had to be on the forearm and not some place more visible. I was like, “dude…”
I sitting here contemplating how I am going to move my living room around (it is Saturday night as a write this). I have mentioned a million times that this is a super small space. Under 700 sq ft and the rooms are really weirdly shaped because we are a corner unit. When Tom was at Value Village today he sent me a picture of a couch (and a Carrot Top alarm lock that he wanted to get but was so ugly I kiboshed it). The couch is a brown leather, three seater in great condition, with a matching chair all for $35 and from Ikea. Seriously. We were contemplating getting the $700 fabric couch from Ikea but this one is a clear bargain that can’t be passed up. If we were just swapping couch for couch then I wouldn’t have to move stuff around but since we are also adding another (largish) chair then some reconfiguring needs to be done. It’s along weekend (Victoria Day Weekend) so we have an extra day to get shit done before Tom goes back to work.
When you move furniture here you have to book the elevator but that causes issues with last-minute purchases since you have to book in advance. It’s one of the main frustrations that I have with condo living so we are going to try to sneak it in without booking it. We lost out on a couch a while back because we couldn’t book the elevator. It’s not really big so I hope we can get it in without any issues or getting in trouble :/
We had a couple of really unseasonably hot and humid days last week which gave us a taste of the summer to come and I am dreading it. None of us are heat people so the girls starting complaining the moment their eyes opened even though the air conditioning in the building has been turned on for the season.
I returned some clothes to Zara that I bought for Merle that either didn’t fit properly or she wasn’t a big fan of and caved and bought a kimono with the exchange. I showed the two colours that I had narrowed it down to and I ended up getting the blue because it fit better. So while I actually hate summer I am looking forward to being able to wear it.
*some people were moving in the day we got the couch and were nice enough to let us use their booked elevator to bring the new couch up and the old couch down. It was meant to be. Except the living room currently looks like a Tetris game and we need to either rent a van or cram it in to our suv to donate next weekend.
I can’t believe it is almost June.
