We got a new couch but we don't actually sit on the upholstery on account of having cats and also on account of the cats having fur and claws. So we keep our 'spensive couch covered with a $15 thermal blanket. It's completely worth it.
John and I sat around for a couple of hours this evening and talked about the places we'd like to re-visit. Nearby places. Portland, ME. Stockbridge, MA. That awesome farmer's market in VT. Places that won't be so convenient once we move.
