One of the areas in our house still unfinished with furniture is my office. It's a big room with a big dormer with a window. My L-shaped desk is in one corner and under window of the dormer area and behind me on the side wall of dormer is 2 oak filing cabinets. The rest of the room is pretty empty - other than 3 big bins of "stuff" I have in the corner of the room and also we have been using our old wire dog crate for the cat. While kitty no longer gets shut in it, since it has a big plastic tray for the bottom I have his litter box set inside it as well as his food bowl in the other side of it. It's just lovely, LOL.
So, for what almost 3 years now? haha, I have been wanting some furniture in here to fill out/finish the room. I wanted something (faux for my budget) in like a camel colored leather, but then dh suggested it really should be something that converts to a bed, just to have the extra sleeping if we ever need it. Just didn't want to spend $1200 or more for a sleeper sofa, plus how to get something that heavy up the stairs with just the 2 of us? Then last week I came across a futon with a leather look type mattress. It wasn't exactly what I had in mine, but would work. But I had not bought it yet and then came across another that is kind of a futon style, but looks like what I had envisioned in here in the first place. It looks more like a couch then a futon but folds down like one. Then I sat with that on my computer for several days trying to decide. I finally ordered it yesterday from Wayfair and it's supposed to be here by the end of next week. I think it's also something dh and I should be able to get upstairs no problem. It will be really nice to finally have this checked off my list.
Then I have been looking at these wood "cat litter cabinets" and I think I'm going to order one of these to try. It will look much better than a wire dog crate! I think this is the one I'm going to get
Also on Wayfair, but I will earn $29 in rewards from the sofa purchase as soon as it ships and I can apply that towards this purchase, so I am waiting. Amazon has same thing for same price, if my sofa doesn't ship/credit me soon I might just order it from Amazon as I'd like to get it here before we have our guests staying with us. I can always use the $29 credit towards something else at some point. Wayfair has this same exact item listed twice on it's website, same picture and everything but different "manufacturer's" One is $109 and the other is $369! Gosh, which one shall I order??
Our dog seems better, but still not 100%. When he's just resting he's fine, but when he gets up to eat or go outside he will sneeze a little bit, but there hasn't been any blood, but this morning he sneezed right before going out and a little bit came out, but it was more kind of a little snotty mess with a little blood (LOL) so I'm not too concerned. We're to give him the antibiotic for 7 days. He's barely sneezing and when he does it's not been like a full blown sneeze (once or twice) but more like a little snort.
Still no word on my raise. I even talked to my boss on the phone yesterday for quite awhile while we were working on something and she was sharing her screen so we could figure it out. Nothing mentioned. Two weeks past now. Really, how long does it take to make a decision? It's kind of demoralizing, really. It's not making me feel very valued as an employee, that's for sure.
At least it's the weekend. Not good weather wise (maybe tomorrow) but at least no plans and can just take it easy and do my chores when I feel like it.
