Couch conundrum

Actually they are calling them “sofas” now. At least that seems to be the best way to get search results on the internet. When I was a kid we called them “davenports”. At least The Commander did.

If I want to buy a couch sofa, I have to go SHOPPING. For furniture. Did I want to go furniture shopping today? No I did not. Do not get me wrong. I am not afraid I’m going to get COVID (again) by going (masked) into a few furniture stores. That train has left the station.

I just plain hate shopping, especially at this time of year. But more to the point I really hate shopping for furniture. What I would really like is for someone to get an idea of what I’m interested in and locate a few options that I can pick from. I know Certified Kitchen Lady would be a great help but they do *renovations*, not just single pieces of furniture. I don’t think I can get the GG to agree to renovating our two main living spaces as much as I’d like to.

I get so overwhelmed in furniture stores. There’s tooooo much. I can’t envision ANY of it in MY house. I don’t really like the colors. I want teal, they have taupe, etc. Taupe is not a color. I can’t STAND the intrusive sales personnel. I want somebody there if I have questions or I’m ready to buy. Trying to push stuff on me is likely gonna send me out the door in a panic. I couldn’t do that kind of job if you paid me a billion dollars.

So today we tried facetime shopping where the GG did the walking and I looked at (and rejected) about a bazillion couches sofas. At some point, I know I will have to go out and look myself. And I cannot buy a couch sofa on the internet although I can certainly surf to look at styles (but that’s overwhelming too). A couch sofa is a big enough item I need to meet it in person and maybe even sit on it.

Bah humbug😵‍💫😵‍💫😵‍💫

P.S. This is a first world problem and one I am no doubt overthinking!
