Couches and Craigslist Part 2

So yes. For all of you who were wondering... We finally got rid of the chicken couch. It's been a while so the details are a little blurry, but... A girl and her boyfriend came on Tuesday and picked up the couch. They were going to come Monday...but couldn't. Then they were going to come on Tuesday at 12. They got lost and were late. 2 hours late! Sigh. Well they got here, and I showed them the couch, and told them it was heavy. In my heart, I was praying to the Lord that they wouldn't hate it and leave. I would have cried. This was before Noah was born, so I could very possibly have actually been crying at the time and not known. Who knows? So then they said, "Let's take off the slipcover." "Oh NO!" I screamed silently. "Then you will see how truly hideous this couch is." I could practically hear the girl sending her boyfriend silent vibes to just run away. But... They took it. Along with the four pillows I had stuffed down inside it to help sitters to not fall through to the bottom. YAY!!!!!!! Now we have a great couch! It's such a blessing. And so clean. Even though Noah has peed on it like 5 times so far. I love Resolve.

I'm just so tired!!!

Really. I am. Today, I had my first shower since Sunday. Yeah, it's Wednesday, I know. Maybe I like being grimey... Maybe I LOVE walking around with sour milk on my shoulder. It's cool! I wear all these things as a badge of Mothering honor.
"Oh, yes interested bystander! I DID only get two hours of sleep last night! Thank you for being so concerned!"
"Indeed, Mother of One! It IS quite a bit harder than having just one measly baby. Not just ANYONE can have two children."
"Why... Hello fellow mother of two! Yes, you can join my exclusive club."
I might say all these things... if I ever got out of the house to speak to adults. That must come when you join the "Mother of Schoolchildren" club. For now, I'll just be happy when I make it to the grocery store and back before my "girls" begin to leak.
I wanted this...right?
