As you might have noticed from the PaceHouse 2.1 list the other day, we're working on getting some deferred maintenance done, and finally doing some projects that are overdue. (RCP, have you called Gabriel about the trellis?)
RCP had spotted a nice couch at a screaming price at Costco a couple weeks back. However, they kept not having any in stock.
Last weekend, she called and Costco said they had them. So, I hopped in the car. I went to Lowe's (right next to Costco) to rent a truck, since the couch is in three large boxes. I then learned that you can only rent Lowe's trucks if you are buying something big at Lowe's. So, I call home and my brother and rallied a convoy. Then I went in to Costco. Fruitless wandering revealed no couches, and customer service told me that there weren't any. Luckily I got hold of the convoy before they had mobilized. Grrr.
Last Friday, a phone call indicated that more were available. RCP got a hold of a delivery company. (Yay!) On Monday, the new couch arrived. They brought it, unboxed it, and set it up. It looks great, and is very comfortable.
