Sweet Sleeper

 Our house is ever changing. As our needs and uses for each room evolve, we modify what's in there and change it up. We have a bonus room upstairs that we use as a TV room, and it's pretty great. James also has an office downstairs that has doubled as our guest room. It has gotten pretty crowded, because James is a collector of lots of cool stuff, and we needed to find a good solution to streamline his office and make a comfortable space for guests to stay. We had theater-style recliner chairs in the TV room that were getting kind of elderly. Comfy-ish, but hard to snuggle with kids in. Anyway, after some thought, we decided it was out with the old...

...and in with the new. A lovely sleeper sofa (my darling dad's nightmare, after helping so many of us kids move over the years). It's a nice one, and we have a nice, big, thick piece of memory foam to put on top of the mattress to make it extra comfy. I'm excited to have a real couch in there after 8 years, honestly. There's something about really sitting next to someone on a couch - I don't know what it is. Big thanks to Murphy's Furniture in Cornelius for hauling that heavy baby up our stairs and for taking the old stuff away! I'm thinking I will try to build us an ottoman or something with storage, so we can still put our feet up. We'll see how it goes. For now - new couch!
