What I’m wishing for…

October 23rd, 2010

We’re trying hard to stick to a good budget, saving and paying off debt and preparing for the worst. Just trying to be responsible.

Sometimes it’s so hard to send away all our extra money when I would really love some nice things. Oh well, it will be even sweeter when it feels like the right time. But here’s what’s on my wish list:

  • A new couch. Ours is el cheapo. It’s served us well and I always liked the look of it, but you get what you pay for. And the cushions have had much better days. And the stain resistant fabric looks streaked already.
  • A recliner. We have an overstuffed chair which is wonderful to cuddle into for a movie and looks OK if you cover up the faded fabric with blankets but it’s so big and not so nice looking and ugh. It’s time to find a new home for it.
  • A new kitchen table. All I can say is, never buy a kitchen table with grooves in it if you have kids. While I can see tons of little crumbs and bits in those grooves, it is impossible to get them all out.
  • A new coffee table. Stained and chipped all over, it’s getting junky. It would be really nice to have something soft and cushiony too that Eva wouldn’t hurt herself on.
  • Media storage. I really need something to store DVDS and games and photo albums. Bins in the garage are just not cutting it.

OK, now I feel like our stuff is so junky! But you know what, with a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old roaming around, our furniture may just be perfect for right now.

    Did you add a bird to the tree for Eva? I just now noticed.
