I FINALLY have purged the living room of all furniture that was in place when I first moved in, about TEN years ago. Mark had the crap for at least that long before even meeting me, so we're talking 70's era. You know I am NOT exaggerating if you have ever tried to plunk your butt in the living room.
I finally told him that if all the people who say they are coming to Arts and Craps Day (the day after Thanksgiving) actually do show up, they can't shoehorn themselves into two cruddy chairs. And, if he didn't want to buy them, I would. And he would have no say in the matter.
That's the secret to living with a control freak. Take notes here - - threaten to take away their control of a situation!
Anyway, enuff kvetching.... here they are! Might just go take a NAP!!!!
