As items keep selling everything becomes more real every day. It’s been nuts trying to sell whatever you think will sell for any value. Some items have flown away and some items have not. Regardless, we are starting to get empty rooms in our house and as things sell it’s turning into reality.
Where can you say you’ve experienced Middle Earth, New York City, The Bahamas, and the Yucatan all in one spot? Or where can you say you’ve hung out with Captain Jack Sparrow, Indiana Jones, Zorro, and Robin Hood? Our living room has been our own personal window to adventures.
One winter day I recall a fire snapping in our fireplace as I snuggled up on our large leather couch, watching the snowfall through our nine-foot glass patio doors as it piled up on our patio. By the middle of the day, the snow had made it up to the door handles. You got to love Northern Wisconsin weather.
There were days that all I wanted to do was lay on our couch. Who has not had one of those Sundays where you should have been doing something better but you killed the whole day laying around on the couch? There have been many dinners eaten while watching TV or planning our adventures. Our little pupster, Kobe, spent many days perched on the back looking out the front door window waiting for Lina or myself to get home.
We moved our couch into our house before we even finished building it. At the time we did not even have carpet, so we placed it in the attached garage. Once we had the carpet installed, we moved it to the spot where it sat until this past Saturday afternoon. Now there’s a large empty spot where our couch sat.
It is funny how you can get attached to something simple like a couch. We were sad to see it go but it’s time to get off the couch and live the real adventure.
