A new couch (*this is not the couch, stock photo) would not qualify to Mitch as a "need" item at this point in time. So, I am on Mission Possible and will be financing this couch myself. I've tucked some money away, sold a couple of items on eBay, and well, I'm getting there. I think I can get it ordered in a few weeks (with an 8-10 week wait for custom order). I drive my husband crazy, but he also has come to expect this behavior. I've moved the old furniture out (consignment and more $$$$ toward the new stuff). I suspect when the new couch is in place he will be thankful and appreciative, until then he is tolerating Crazy Cindy. And of course, cash donations welcome. Anyone, anyone?
