Lesson Learned?

“Yes…easily” was the answer I got from Timothy when I asked “Will it fit?” He sent me a picture of a couch he saw at Goodwill that seemed a little large for our very small living room.

Today was pink tag day, which means 50% off…plus his 20% discount brought the cost of the couch down to $80. We picked it up this evening and I was certain it was too big, but he assured me that it truly would fit.

Into the truck it went and we headed for home. Esther and Timothy hauled it up the stairs but it wouldn’t fit through the door….so…off came the door. Placed in its’ intended position and clearly it wasn’t even close to fitting. Silence…the kind you can cut with a knife. Then laughter, a cacophony of laughter.

We measured a variety of different places and there was only one place it fit but nothing else fit around it. So…out the door, back into the truck, and to my parents house it went.

This reminds me of the time when we stood in the forest and he said… “For sure this Christmas tree will fit in the house!” It was 4 feet taller than the whole house!

I love this man even if he has no spatial concept whatsoever!!! J.


  1. Lol . . . I love you guys!!!

  2. hahaha I love it! Good idea sending it to Grandma and Grandpa's, they can always use another couch! :D

  3. We've NEVER had anything like that happen to us... I'm sure your parents wanted a new sofa, right?
