Mischief Managed

Happy New Year! 

I started the day off on the right note by making it to a 1-hour spin class this morning. The girl that had the bike behind me was totally singing along to the songs, which I found amusing.  Shake it off, shake it off!

Truth be told, I lipsynced my way though class.

Afterwards, I went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to return a gift that I didn't end up giving away. On a whim, I went over to the home section because I had been thinking about getting a slip cover for the loveseat. RJ has sometimes used the edges of the armrests as a scratching post (even though he knows how to use the actual scratching thing that's next to the TV!) and the right side has frayed so badly that the foam is coming out slightly (?!). I had thought about upgrading my furniture since I purchased the sofa and loveseat from the house's previous owners, but OMG, I looked up furniture online and it's not cheap.  Not that I would want cheap furniture.  It would not be fiscally responsible to get something cheap and then have it fall apart in a year or so.  Wow, quite the reality check. Mom suggested that I get a slipcover since it'd be a cheaper alternative and I can wash it if necessary and if RJ ruins this one, it's not as big of a financial investment as new furniture is.

Anyway, I found one in chocolate...and it was on clearance and I had a coupon! #bestdayever Original price: $59.99, clearance price: $35.99 and then I had a 20% coupon. Yay!  I'm not in a rush to cover the sofa because it hasn't been a victim of RJ's mischief, but if the right one at the right price comes along, then I'll reconsider.
Another good thing that happened today was that I got a 2-card Etsy sale. Etsy sales 2 days in a row...double yay!
