Couch Day!

Because I'm somehow quite busy, I failed to alert the media of couch day. Couch day was June 21st for those of you who don't know. The story goes as follows: On Friday, June 20th, I had a swell day. I substituted for a first grade class and enjoyed it. I also learned that I am not structured enough to have more than fifteen little children under my direction. It was really fun but really crazy. Tears were shed...not by me...but all in all, the kids were adorable and I had such fun. I was on recess duty and a bunch of the kids just chilled with me instead of playing with their friends. Very cute. The teacher I subbed for is the mom of one of my good friends, Brittany. Brittany and her beau brought me lunch and hung out a bit. After school (Praises for Friday early day!), I hung out with Brittany and Kody. I was beat from all the first grade fun so I decided I shouldn't go to my other job (I have 3) as I wasn't fit to save lives. Fast forward a few hours. Brittany, Kody, and I were all going to meet Adam for dinner but he was running behind so we thought we waste a little time playing in Furniture Warehouse. We were just tired and felt like chilling. A saleswoman came up to us, no doubt in search of some commission, but left us alone seeing that we were merely being young and obnoxious. Unfortunately for her, our lounging soon became the search for the greatest couch. We found it. This couch was award winning, Brittany and I were huge fans. The camel colored chaise sectional with two chaises and comfort fit for a really high maintenance lazy person was swell. Brittany tried to beckon the saleswoman to return to our aid but the snooty priss looked at us and walked in the opposite direction. A decision she regretted, I'm sure. Because I salesman, Rick, overheard and came to the rescue. Rick discovered that this couch was the last of its kind and would be 25% off for the reason. Even better! I did what any homeowner in search for a sweet couch would do (I'm not a homeowner, by the way), I asked if he could hold it for us. The store closed, I told...begged Adam, we returned the following day. Saturday, we got there fairly early with two trucks in tow. Adam was going to see if it met his approval and if it did, we'd get it. The couch passed with flying colors and next thing I know, we're loading up sections of the couch. My family came with a third truck as I underestimated the size of our new couch. Whilst waiting for the third truck, Adam and I basked on the third piece of the sectional sitting on the sidewalk in front of the store...very classy. Since Adam and I aren't even betrothed and both still live with our parents, the couch purchase could easily be deemed premature. Thanks much to my swell parents for storing the very large but wonderful couch in their basement and to Adam and Jacob for undertaking the task of moving it into the basement! Yay for couch day! Pictures will be posted shortly.

Could be a little premature...sure would make a break up awkward but I dont think thats anywhere in your future, maybe there's a ring hidden in it somewhere. Dang there goes my idea for a wedding gift, guess I'll have to think of something else. Next thing to buy would be a king size mattress...but no funny business.

Not SO awkward Holly...It is a sectional and can be divided up equally!

Yeah, you guys could have joint custody of the couch in the event of a break up. I want to see the couch . . .

I was a substitute teacher once. I totally know how it feels to be so stressed and feel rewarded at the same time. I however could not sub for any grade younger than fourth, and that was a struggle. Mostly, I'm just leaving this comment so that you know that I have a blog and stuff. Oh yeah, this is your cousin (or something like a cousin) Jeff. Sorry this is a really random comment, but it is past midnight and it has been a long day.
