Checking In

Where’s Jennifer???? She's hiding inside because it's so frickin' HOT!!!!  Maybe we'll get some relief when that storm blows in. 

What have I been up to?  I bought my first piece of real furniture.  This is what I was sitting on, since I didn’t bring any furniture from my old place.

This is what I’m sitting in now. I have no more pets or children (my daughter took the cats) so I can finally have something nice.


I always wondered if La-Z-Boys were really better than other chairs or if I’d just be paying for the name. Then I visited their showroom in Webster and fell in love. I had the saleswoman laughing as I ran around from chair to chair trying to find the perfect one. Was she laughing at me or with me? Hmmmm…

I decided upon a microfiber, pewter-colored, rocking recliner with extra lumbar support. By the time I paid for fabric protection and delivery, it cost almost a month’s rent but it was well worth the price. I love my new chair!

Oh, yeah. I paid cash. I’m planning on buying new furniture one piece at a time and charging none of it.

It’s too hot and humid to sit outside for long now even after dark, so I haven’t been online much. I need to get internet inside my apartment soon. Or maybe I’ll just start shopping for one of the mobile cards that allow you internet access anywhere. Does Sprint have those?

Until then I’ll be relaxing in my big, comfy, cozy, recliner…snuggling under my blanket…reading a book. I’ll check in soon. Miss you guys.

Looks like you picked a winner.

Before I got married, my recliner was my fav piece of furniture--it was blue with a heating element. Unfortunately, it did not blend well with the Mrs. stuff and I had to sell it...

I must say that I am jealous of your purchase.

Brian Miller said...

nice...congrats on the new furniture! looks nice and comfy...

Anita said...

I like it! I'm sure it will give you years of comfort.

Wise of you to spend cash when you can. You're probably saving yourself from a big headache down the road.

Stay cool. :)

Jen: I think she was probably laughing and celebrating with you! A good chair to rest in is a great place to begin furnishing your new digs! :)

Tempo said...

They're a great chair aren't they? I've got two in my lounge, the two Fox Terriers have taken vacant possession of one and the other is supposed to be mine... when I can get to it first. I guess mine are about 15 years old now and still show no signs of any problem.
It's nearing the end of Winter here in Oz so your Summer must be nearly over too...Hopefully!

AmyLK said...

that looks SO comfy! Glad you checked in. And inside is the best place to be when its this hot out.

Enjoy the chair!

Kelly said...

Looks like a VERY comfy chair!!

Good to see you're still alive and well. Hope you get some rain from the tropical storm. Haven't looked at weather recently, so I assume it's still headed your way.

Know anything about canoes. I'm thinking about getting one. But will they mount a salmon weir. Rather will they shoot a weir without removing and carrying every darn thing around them.

Jen said...

@slamdunk: You could have had the fabric replaced with something that wouldn't clash....

@oilfield trash: I bet it was less expensive than your TV. Go get one of your own.

@Brian Miller: Looks are not deceiving in this case.

@Anita: From now on, I'm only financing such things as vehicles and maybe a home one day. I keep a small balance on my credit card strictly for credit score purposes. Wish I'd learned that lesson earlier in life.

Jen said...

@Michael Manning: It's difficult to tell at times. Maybe it was both. She giggled when my feet didn't come close to touching the floor.

@Tempo: We haven't even begun our most miserable month - August.

@AmyLK: This heat is enough to chase even the diehards indoors. I normally love summers, but it's too much...

@Kelly: We're not even going to get any rain. Weak, wimpy,miserable excuse for a storm.

Jen said...

@Vince: I know enough that you should get a kayak instead. I hybrid sit-on-top will give you plenty of storage, a place for your dog to ride, and provide much more stability than a canoe.

Jen said...

@Vince: And thanks to hatches and bungees they can go down rapids without losing everything...is that something like a salmon weir?

Lorraine said...

hey Jen, I don't remember knowing you, but I like the chair, you just sgainit and ream...nice to see you a

Jackie said...

It is one of my dreams to someday have a large comfy recliner chair. Congrats on your new chair. Enjoy.
