i hate coming up with post titles.
here is a clearer picture of our house, and a different angle. hopefully we can close sometime next week and get moved in on the 3 day weekend that we get for pioneer day. our apartment is a disaster right now. and poor mosey is so scared of everything going on that he actually wet the bed. that has never happened before. and we were only gone for 30 minutes. poor guy..
so you know how we have a history with our couches... we have had several different sets since we have been married. all used and all very different. the first set, was very old, and we could not seem to get some certain smells out of it. the 2nd, i loved.. but unfortunately had been sitting in my parents backyard for a little too long. and certain spider families had decided to move in. and even after cleaning it out and bug bombing it, they decided to stay. i absolutely loathe spiders. and sean hates when i say that word but i don't even care. maybe i should say he loathes when i say that word. we then got another set and ended up mixing it up with another set. so so far we have put 3 sets of couches/love seats out on our lawn for free.
the first set was gone with in an hour.
the spider set? well we looked outside and there was a man sitting on it smoking a cigarette. he only spoke spanish and sean had a conversation with him. he was waiting for his friends to come pick them up. he was "Reserving" them if you will. i felt so bad giving those ones away. they looked great, but i wouldn't sit on them if you paid me to. and to be fair i felt like i had no way of warning that man since i don't speak spanish....
i don't think anyone took the 3rd set. pretty sure we took that one to D.I.
well we ended up finding a sectional that we liked over the weekend, and decided to move out our old couches. remember how i stabbed one of them? well anyway, we put the couches out there with the slipcovers on them and we left. when we came back, mosey had peed in his bed because of sheer terror or probably because he saw someone had taken the slipcovers off of the couches and couldn't do anything about it because of the stupid cone on his head. meh, oh well. one has a hole in it from a knife. hopefully they won't mind. i can imagine the stories that they might come up with about the stab hole.. but to be honest? i think the same person has taken all of the couches... my biggest fear is that a neighbor will invite us into their home and ask me to sit on their couch. and i will see it's the spider couch. and i will feel obligated to sit on it. is that sad that i have actually thought about that really happeneing?
anyway, we have learned not to leave anything out on our front lawn unless we are trying to get rid of it. we once had to put a mattress out there because we were replacing it with a new one.. i thought someone was going to take it. someone else saw our old washer out on the side of our house and asked if they could have it. i mean, it was even hidden?? i am pretty sure i have seen the neighbors eyeing mosey. i am glad we won't be living there when we decide to have kids because they will probably be up for grabs in a heartbeat. unless they are ugly. was that mean? wait, never mind. that didn't stop people from taking the couches, so who knows? it's probably a good thing we are moving..
*update: i just went home for lunch and someone stole the pillow/cushions off of the couches... come on! just take the whole couch!!
