Well, I guess it has been awhile since I have been on here. I love writing on this blog and sharing with our family and friends, but sometimes, it feels like such a chore to get it done. I will try to be better, but even as I sat down to do this, Abby walked over to ask if she could have the computer. I guess that is why I usually blog after the kiddos head to bed! Scott took Mckenzie to dance this morning and Abby and I stayed at home. We finally decided that it was time to get a new couch. The movers damaged the couch when they moved it this last time but it was still usable until recently. We were hoping to get by until we moved again, but the wood is now poking through and part of the couch is way lower than the rest of it! So, we have been looking for a couch and just happened upon a great sale at a local store. I had my eye on a beautiful Pottery Barn sofa, but it just pains me to think of spending the money only to have the movers damage it. Someday I will have one, but until then, I will settle for what I like to call "get me by until we live somewhere forever furniture". We found a nice sofa and over sized chair with an ottoman that we both liked. The only downside to the whole thing was after we got home, the store called to say they miscalculated the cost of the furniture and we actually owed more money than what they already charged to our account. Scott isn't fond of giving out our debit info over the phone so he asked if we could mail a check or give a check to the delivery guys when they deliver on Tuesday. The store was pretty rude and said unless we paid via phone or came back to the store to pay (at least a 25-30 minute trip both ways for us) they would not be delivering our furniture. We couldn't believe how rude they were considering it was their mistake and not ours. All this over $36. I guarantee we will not be giving this store our business again.
I took Abby to a birthday party for one of her friends this afternoon at Chick fil A. Abby had a good time and couldn't get enough of the cow (the store mascot for those of you that don't know). She kept giving her hugs and high fives. Scott took Mckenzie on a date to a different Chick fil A and she was so excited to explore a different play area.
