For those of you who don't know, Mrs. Ref purchased a couch-thing for the bedroom while I made my first trip to Montana. It's a cute little two-seat deal, arm rests big enough to lay books on and drawers on each side. She had some excuse about upgrading the look of the room, and it will be great in our new place (wherever that may be). Besides, it was only $20.

I'll admit, it is cute, and it gives me someplace to store keys, wallet, watch, change etc so that they don't get lost. But buying a piece of furniture before we moved didn't make me too terribly happy. We aren't supposed to be collecting more stuff while here -- except for books, of course.

Apparently, there is such a thing as Divine Justice. We went to change the sheets on our bed last night and found that one of the water tubes sprung a leak without our knowing it. And not recently. And with the heat and humidity that we've experienced, the bed is ruined. I was even less happy about this than I was about the purchase Mrs. Ref made in the opening paragraph.

But, as she pointed out, that's one less thing we have to move. Always looking on the bright side, that one.
