New Couch Smell

We have new couches. Our new couch purchase was out of need, not want. If you wanted to, you have created a science experiment using our old couches or learned how to sew upholstery by covering all of the tears and holes.

Thank you, four children, with no regard for nice things, and high regard for making small holes bigger, just for the fun of it.

Along with the new couches comes the new couch smell. This resembles the new car smell which is equally yummy, however, the new couch smell doesn't last as long as the new car smell.

If I had new couches to put inside a new car, I would be fully intoxicated with new smell-ness and in yummy smell heaven. If only.

I have yet to tell the children that every time they sit on the couches they need to say to each other, "Merry Christmas." I'm not sure that they have fully embraced the fact that the couches are their Christmas present.

And of course, now that we have new counches, the carpet looks terrible, the walls look bare, and the other furniture looks used and old. Isn't that always the case?

I should probably inform my daughter that for her birthday she is getting a mirror for our living room wall. My oldest son is getting new carpert for the living room, my middle mister is getting lamps, and the youngest boy is getting our Christmas pictures from the last two years mounted and framed.

That should thrill all of them, and cover the rest of our needed upgrades.

Totally hilarious about telling each other "Merry Christmas." Lid, you're one of the best in Bloggyland. I'm thankful to have met you. Blessings on you and yours on your new sofas this Thanksgiving.
