We’re moving, and for once we’re not trying to get rid of stuff. In fact, we need to acquire some furniture items, cheap like the budgie/budget. I thought I’d start by asking the IntraWeb if any of my dear readers or their friends might have any of the following items lurking about that they’re hoping to clear out for a bargain price.

  • Twin/trundle bed
  • Computer desk (ours is so broken we’ve decided not to try to move it again)
  • TV/entertainment center, preferably slung low to the floor
  • Small dining table for 2 people (no wider than 3ft)
  • Funky room divider screen
  • Portable/rolling kitchen “island” unit
  • Hanging pot rack
  • Rocking chair

Oh and ummm.. I lied. We are trying to get rid of some stuff. Anyone want to buy a set of downhill skis and boots? They’re good for someone who’s about 5′10″ and has ladies size 9 feet, and weighs roughly 150lbs give or take 20.

We’ve drawn a diagram of the new house, to what we hope is roughly the right scale, and I’ll scan it sometime next week. Details to tempt you: 2 floors, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 gas fireplaces, 2 sun-drenched atriums, insuite laundry, gas stove, clawfoot bathtub, 10 ft ceilings, hardwood floors, over 1500 sq ft, dry and secure storage space, back yard with established berry patch and fruit trees, 1 block from bus route direct to downtown, 2 parking spaces.

The rent and utilities constitute more profanity than I’m willing to expose my readers to, so let’s just say it’s barely within our means but exactly what we both need and want to live in. So let’s hope the money gods are good to us in 2017.
