The Man, a Cargo Van, and IKEA

The Man and I are traveling this week.  Just an overnighter to help a friend’s daughter move from her parents’ house to a deluxe apartment in the sky in a big city about six hours away from us.  We’ll be traveling by cargo van, and staying in a moderately priced hotel, with a quick trip to IKEA the following morning, and hopefully returning home with a new couch.

I know, luxurious, right?

It’s no honeymoon, but I know we’ll still have a good time.  We like spending time together, even while working or doing menial tasks, and he actually loves to drive.  I can’t wait to hit IKEA, one of the things I miss most about living up north.  When the closest one is six hours away, you appreciate it so much more.


And I can’t wait to have a couch!  We’ve been sitting in chairs every evening, and even though The Man loves his recliner, I’m ready to relax, and stretch out.

We’ll mix a little work with a little fun, and my parents will stay with The Boy – a little changeup to our routine.  Enough to make it interesting, but not too much to throw us off.  This is the life.  🙂

  1. Oh I hope you’ll be able to cash and carry your couch. When I got my couch at Ikea, I couldn’t take it with me. I had to either go back to pick it up or have it delivered. Boooo-urns. That sucked because when I set my mind to something, I want it immediately. And it’s nice to walk away with something when you drop a thousand bucks.

    Good luck!!

    • We were able to get the couch, but the cover we wanted was sold out, so I ordered it online and it’ll be here in a week. I’m the same way – I’ve usually done so much research by the time I hit the store that I’m raring to go!
