Adventures in couchless living

I was sitting at work today thinking about how I need to get rid of my not-so-old and very busted futon because it's so damn uncomfortable, but also knowing this wasn't gonna happen anytime soon because we don't the have money to buy a replacement sofa. And then a "crazy" idea occurred to me. Why do we need a couch at all?

Let's get real: I decorated my kid's room for myself

My almost four-year-old recently achieved a huge milestone: he finally has his own room. When I asked him what color he wanted his room to be, he said black (it's his favorite). When I asked what he wanted on the walls, he said black things. When I asked if he still wanted his thrifted Harry Potter blanket, he said ok, but he wanted black everything else. I politely and sweetly smiled at him, told him there was no way my preschooler was going to have an all-black room.
