They may end up sitting in that chair for awhile actually. I thought we had arranged to replace said panther-attacked couch with a "new" one from Kijiji today. But the seller was nowhere to be found when Tim arrived to pick it up (with a rented van, I may add).
Thinking that today was going to be our much anticipated new-couch day, we had dragged the old one out into the backyard. So for now all we've got left inside are the cushions/foam blocks.
I've got my fingers crossed that there was just some mix-up with the seller and the couch will indeed arrive. Although to get it here, we may have to use the Force. It's worth a try.
