Sofa Memories

My husband is sleeping peacefully in our bed.  I praise God he's back home, safe and sound.  I missed him so much while he was gone to work training.  I know all of you army wives must think I'm a big wimp, and maybe I am.  I could have gone and stayed with my parents or grand parents while he was away, but I wanted to be a big girl.  I wanted to try.  Well, it sucks without him around. He leaves a void when he's gone, that's for sure.  I'm happy he's home and I'm happy he's resting.  Apparently his roommate at the hotel had a bit of a snoring problem, so he has some catching up to do.

So, he's sleeping peacefully and I came into what will one day be my closet room.  I came in here to get some pictures of my old sofa from college so that I could put it up for sale on my Facebook page.  I took the pictures...but now I'm just sitting here, leaning into the big cushions and trying to sniff out the way my old apartment used to smell.

My Old Sofa <3

& it's cigarette burn...oops.  I used to smoke inside.  & also, I'm clumsy.

Now, I'm sitting on the sofa postponing uploading these pictures.  It makes me sad to think of a stranger sitting on my sofa.  Even if it's a friend of mine who ends up buying the sofa, you know, we had our last first kiss when I was laying on THIS sofa recovering from strep throat.  I wasn't contagious any more, though.  :)   My point is, letting go of memories is hard.  But the sooner I can clean out this room, the sooner I can turn it into my closet!

This sofa is just so comfortable, so wonderfully scented, and is stuffed full of memories.  I'll be sad to see it go.

You're going to turn a whole room into your closet? I am so freakin' jealous right now. You may have to get one of those upstairs rooms ready, I may just want to move in with you!

We are moving from our newlywed duplex. I am sad to say goodbye to it too. Memories will have to suffice.

It's hard letting go of something that holds so many memories. I'm terrible with getting rid of things because of that reason. Awww you're not a wimp for missing your husband while he was away. That's totally normal! Hope you're having a great weekend, love!

I think every giant closet needs a place to know when you're trying on shoes and stuff :)
