The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The good: replacement cushions for the couch are only $50 each. We ordered two, and they'll be here in 4 weeks. I'm not thrilled that it's going to take a month to get them, but I almost kissed the saleswoman when she quoted the price to me.

The bad: because it's going to take a month to get the replacement cushions, we've had to make our own vinyl covers for the old cushions so Arcadia will (hopefully) not be able to damage them further. Thanks to the awesomeness of Petzyme, the smell is gone. We looked and looked online for ready-made covers that would fit, but ended up just buying two cheap shower curtain liners from Target and taping them around the cushions. It feels a little weird to sit on them now, but I can definitely live with that until April.

The other bad: At least one person came to tour the condo between Thursday and Saturday and didn't leave a card or call. We only noticed that someone had been here because two of the three "home for sale" flyers we had on the dining room table on Wednesday were gone when J looked last night. It bugs me that whoever it was clearly disregarded the instruction on our MLS listing to call us prior to coming over, AND that they didn't leave a card. This wouldn't be anything more than a minor annoyance except for the fact that the condo has literally been a mess for most of the last week. I'm mad at myself about that, especially since I certainly wouldn't be interested in buying a place with dirty dishes in the sink and a living room that's torn to bits.

The ugly (confidential to my body): Spotting? Really? At 5 dpo? You've got to be fucking kidding me. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO THIS, DO YOU HEAR ME? NOT ALLOWED!

On a lighter note, I'm really happy to hear about the couch coushins. cushions. Ok, that is how you spell that. (I had to look it up.)
