Default I Have A Dilemma!

Hi All!!
I've been sick over the past 3 months, but thank goodness with new medication, I'm feeling better every day!

Sitting and laying around the house has given me WAY too much time to see that there are some things that need to be done right here at home.

Now, after a couple of months of laying around on the couch, I'd REALLY like to replace it.......now the dilemma..........

My brother, Scott (Vettfan), is going on the Norewegian Sun in 82 days, along with Melissa (one of my cruising buddies from last year), and her mom. They are beging me to go along with thme since I'm feeling better. Don't you think it would bwe a better idea to get the new couch, instead of paying $300.00 to go on a 7 day cruise in the Caribbean? They just don't understand why this is such a hard decision for me!!!!!

Okay...so maybe I should up the dosage on my meds if this is such a problem..........I did tell him I'd go along......so as of today, 82 days until the Norwegian Sun, and my first NON- Celebrity cruise.

Now, how can I save some money to buy that couch?

Take Care, All!
It's really good to see y'all hanging out in one place!
Jaime

I can't begin to imagine why you'd have to think twice. The cruise is cheaper than a new couch !!!

Hi Jaime, good to see you posting. Go on the cruise and have the couch steam cleaned instead! Or wait till income tax return time to get the new couch...

Hey, Jaime, long time absent! It's good to have you back, ma'am. As far as the couch is concerned, why worry about it? Take the cruise. A couch is a couch, but a cruise is a way of life, right? lol

To pay for the couch? Why not breed pugs?

Hi Jamie glad to hear that you are feeling better and back to posting with us. I think you made the smart choice by taking the cruise, you can always buy a couch later.

Okay, a good friend of mine gave me a really good suggestion.....while in Cozumel, take $10.00 and buy a colorful blanket to throw over the couch, and forget about it!!

I need to find a "Couch" bulletin board and ask them their opinion...who knows, they may think a couch is forever!!

Take Care!
Jaime

A couch is what you will be on at the psychiatrists office if you don't go on the cruise.

Hi Jaime....good to see you back!!! Sorry you have not been feeling well....but looks like the meds and the cruise should do the trick. I agree with the others.......no contest....spend the $300 on the cruise....Jeff's casino idea might work if you get a run of luck.

Mgram....who chose tiling the house over a cruise.....where is that psychiatrist that Bill mentioned......am I nuts or what????(retorical question.....don't bash me...I am fragile right now!)

Rick ...

Jaime (and her accomplices) is/are a wonderful friend(s). You SHOULD be glad to meet her.

I had the good luck to cruise with her last year.

Hi, Jaime. It's really good to hear from you!

I can identify. The tiles in my shower are loose and actually the whole bathroom should be redone, I've been replacing one window at a time on my house (Dad helps out by installing them for me), I decided to try to stretch getting a new winter coat till next year....but I already have that next cruise deposit PAID!

Everyone needs priorities!

I didn't know that "disposable income" was meant to be spent on anything other than cruising! Do you suppose that's why I need new carpets, new tile, new couch, new......everything? Nah..........Cruising is definitely the way to go!

I'm ever so glad to see that I am NOT the only one who has her priorities in order!!

My solution was to buy some inexpensive slipcovers and then I left for a cruise. It worked for me.

Have a great cruise!

Norma

p.s. sorry that you have been laid up.

Like DUH.. tell me one furniture store you can walk into, sit down with a cup of coffee, or a frozen thingy, and spend the day visiting, and making friends out of strangers.

Take the cruise, take the cruise! Don't chose the couch! There could be a good commercial here! :-) I'm doing that CruiseMates cruise and the vinyl floor I had put in is coming up in several places (contractor went belly up) and I should get it fixed but . . . . Hawaii here I come, the floor will wait and I just put scatter rugs over the bad spots!!! Glad you are feeling better! Sue
