Old Blue is gone!



So it really happened! Old blue is officially gone. Shawn got to our home at around 1:30 today - early as usual. He took the door off it's hinges and found rope to tie down the hide a bed. Jimmy and David came right at 2:00 and they managed to lift that beast clear to the road. When David arrived at Deseret Industries with the couch the guy looked it over and felt like it was not in good enough condition to accept. But, David used all of his charm and salesmanship abilities to show him the hide a bed the reclining chairs etc. Finally they decided to accept it. Kind of funny.
We got the leather couches that have been hiding in our basement since before the twins were born and brought them upstairs. I'm sooooo happy. Now I do say that my family room looks gigantic and I never realized how pretty our fireplace was. It always took a back seat to our enormous baby blue couch. Anyway, today is better than Christmas for me.
By the way, Baylee wasn't at all upset about loosing old blue. When she came home from school she was just excited to have a lot of room to do cartwheels in.
I could do cartwheels with her. (JJK). Anyway, sorry Camille, Cori, and Mom for missing our crocheting class today - I just had to be here to make sure this actually happened. It was almost going to be postponed till Friday (David's idea) but I convinced him I had moved things around to the point we had to do it today. Yay!!!!

Yay for you! I have to confess I liked old blue and wanted a sectional in my house because of her? (him)? ...but the leather looks sooo nice. amazing how furniture makes it look like a whole different room.

You know I guess old blue used to be in style. She just hasn't been in style for a long long time. But she did sit a lot of people - old blue was enormous.

You have to admit there are a lot of memories that are leaving with that big ole blue... but I am with you I love the idea of getting rid of the old. I felt the same way about that southwestern sectional we had for years as you do about blue.

Ok, is it just me or is it funny that all three of us have basically the same name spelled differently?
