Friends, the time has finally come for us to let go of the red sofa that was a fixture of my very first single-lady apartment. (that blog post is pure gold, by the way) Purchased in 2006, the red sofa has been the source of snuggles for 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 2 people. It’s been in 2 apartments and a house. In an effort to keep the sofa forever, I restuffed the pillows and refreshed the batting in the seat cushions. I’ve steam cleaned it. We bought legs to replace the ones that had puppy teeth marks. When it started to sag, we bought some plastic inserts to keep the seat cushions parallel to the floor. But some of the fabric is rubbing away and the springs are coming up through the frame.
Tonight, my beloved red sofa will be hauled to the curb (a few days early for trash day, sorry neighbors!) and tomorrow a navy sofa will arrive to replace it.
I cry over everything, but this morning I cried over my red sofa. I’ll never forget it.
(receives phone call)
Um, so because of the snowstorm, the new sofa will be arriving on Sunday so I have one more night with my beloved red sofa. Carry on.
