Come, Sit, and...sit some more!

On March 12, we bought some couches and chairs that were delivered that night.

However, if you've been reading along, you remember that they were the wrong color.

Seriously.  The wrong color.

On the 13th, the furniture people showed up at our house with swatches to see what color we "really" wanted.  I guess the first time it didn't really sink in.

Anyway, they said for us to wait 10 days, and our new order would be here.

Then, on the 15th, some men showed up to pick up the wrong color furniture.  It just happened to be on the day when I had a house full of neighborhood ladies over for tea.

Twenty days later, we got a surprise.


I think I had already given up hope that they even remembered we had ordered furniture.

Two guys came to drop it all off.  One guy visited.  The other guy put all the pieces together.

They brought a drill, but it was electric-powered, and we didn't have electricity at that time.  Thankfully, Doug had purchased a battery-charged one for him to use to hang curtains, etc.  Otherwise, I'm not sure what they would have done.

And, as you can see, they are NOT white!!!  They are the perfect shade of DARK grey!

Most people here, including us, were shocked that we actually ended up getting what we ordered.

What a blessing!

This gentleman unwrapped each piece, then pulled out all the "real" legs (black) and the "fake" legs (brown).

He first screws in the sturdy, real leg.

Then, he covers it with a painted, brown plastic piece that shows for a "nice look."

And that's how you put a couch together.

We bought couches that each fold down into a double bed, so that our children would have places to sleep when guests have their beds.

You know what that means, right?  

We're ready for you to come visit!
