We've been hitting the road and going someplace for the last couple of days, and I think we'll do it again today. Cliff needs some new shoes. We aren't big on shopping, either of us, but when the weather is wretched, it gets us off the property and out of the house.
Cliff and I are done with recliners. There are two in the living room, one for each of us. Cliff hasn't used his for ages because every time he sat in it for a couple of hours, he'd get down in the back. I'm still using mine, but only because there's no other suitable chair to use. We're also needing a mattress. I'm the one who has never been bothered by back problems, but old age is catching up with me. Sometimes I feel like I need to call in a crane to help me turn over in bed.
So we went to Richmond and sat in a lot of chairs.
Now to figure out where we'll get the money for these items. I don't look for a huge tax refund, since nobody is working a job around here. So that's out. I refuse to touch the emergency fund to buy furniture. Cliff's tractor fund is sacred. We buy nothing on credit except gasoline.
Oh well, we'll figure something out. If not, we're getting by with what we have.
Of course, the sensible thing to do is prioritize these items and get one at a time. Yeah, that sounds like a possibility. In that case, my chair gets top priority.
