Day 6

We bought a new chair! We have had an old green recliner in our living room for a long time and that poor thing was on it's last leg. We actually bought it when we built our first house, which would make it almost 13 years old. It has served us well over the years. In our first house it was in our family room and I used to sit in it and read books to the boys when they were toddlers. We kept a big basket of board books right next to it just for that purpose.

Then when we moved to this house it didn't fit in our family room and we didn't really know what to do with it, so we stuck it in the corner of the formal living room and it has resided there ever since. It has still remained the reading chair for the boys, but now they read their own books in it. The formal living room always seems to be everyone's favorite place for reading because it's quiet, so many times I have found a child curled up in it, reading a book.

But that poor chair has reached the end of it's life. The leather is super worn and in the last couple of months I have noticed that it's starting to droop on one side when you sit in it. Something must have broken inside of it. So I decided that it was time to replace the beloved green reading chair.

We got some money on a rewards card from the furniture store for all the furniture that we bought for the basement in December, so we decided to use that to buy a new chair for the living room. We went last Saturday and picked one out. We decided to go for another leather recliner because I still would like it to be the place everyone curls up to read. We tested out all the recliners at the furniture store, found one that was comfortable and fit the budget and this morning they delivered it.

So goodbye, beloved old green reading chair. You have served us well.

And welcome, new brown reading chair! I hope you will keep us comfortable while we read for years to come! :) 

New furniture makes me happy! :)
