day sixteen: missive to a couch

Dearest Couch,

Thank you for always being there for me. During this past week your tolerance for me has been tried and tested, and may I just say that you have passed with flying colors. After I get the kids off to school and kiss the husband goodbye as he leaves for work, I have used you as a place of quiet reflection, a place to fold laundry, and a place hold my bag loaded with books and papers and pens. And at the end of the day, after I have been the teacher and then the student, I often visit you again. You know, just so you know I still care. Your brown leathery comfort helps me to relax and stretch out my weary body. You are the best.


ps Sorry for the teensy bit of drool tonight when I passed out.

I'm so with you on this. I have two new, leather couches in my living room and one, older-than-me hide a bed that I ALWAYS sit on. It's the best:)

Snort. I think I owe my sofa a similar note.

I...just realized that I don't have the right email address for you...if you want to shoot it my way, I'll add you to my list of invited readers for our blog--we changed it to allow only approved viewers...ALSO, :) I know you're super busy these days, but could you find a few minutes to visit with an old friend/young women? Like, say, sometime in the first week of October?

I love my couch. We are tight friends! Been with each other through 4 babies, lots of house guests and long days.

I've so much drool on my couch. . .

Thanks for making me laugh out loud! I can relate to the love of my couch, too! We've spent many drowsy hours together.
