I mentioned a few months ago that we purchased new living room furniture. Our old pieces are old, and falling apart. After searching and waiting for a sale, we ordered furniture back at the beginning of January. We waited, and waited, and they finally called to schedule a delivery.

Unfortunately the snowbanks were so high there was no way a big truck was going to make it up our driveway, let alone be able to turn around at the top. So I delayed the delivery for a month hoping the snow would be gone and mud season would be over.

The snow melted just in time, but the driveway was super muddy. Thankfully, the truck made it up without much trouble and our furniture was delivered. The cats are already camped out on it, so I guess it’s cat approved.

Anything exciting happening in your household this week?
