Furniture is coming my way

My furniture is coming!!!!

Let's hope it is all in one piece and all able to be assembled. Last year I got a tall bookshelf from IKEA that had the wrong shelf on top... It took half a year to get it fixed!

So what am I getting? Well... since you asked ;)

In Antique stain:

-buffet with glass doors
-coffee table with cool shelves in middle
-matching tall bookshelf (the same as mentioned above)
-round, with 1 leaf extension, dining room table (sits 4 or 6)

With cute full chair skirt almost to the floor:
-4 cute dining room chairs that are comfortable (good chairs are hard to find)

And one...

Ivory leather sofa bed (was just a little bit more than a cloth sofa bed and my Cat Cleo SHEDS)

I had intentionally saved almost all of my last year's tax return (educational credits all used up!) because I knew I wanted to move apartments. As I did not have a living room, I knew I would have a bit to store up for.

And now that time is here. It is a bit sudden, but exciting.

Finally I will DV have a bed and the space to have family and friends sleep over!


On another note....I am still working at trying not to worry. I received some encouraging emails today that reminded me that I am loved. Sometimes, life is a bit of a struggle. And I know that starting a new job, moving and setting up house are all really big things. Lots of things going on with my job, a new online class and house stuff. But God is good and I am trying to pace myself, eat well and breathe a lot. I am still struggling with almost daily-nightly insomnia and some dizziness. More doctors appointments are in the works about these things.

Sending my love to all I know through the blog world!

Dag Roosje, ben jij van Nederlandse afkomst? Ik heb net het verhaal over je opa en oma gelezen, allemaal erg herkenbaar. :) Mensen leven nog zo steeds hier.

Groet van Marcel
