Jan and I have found a nice little house to rent. It belongs to a dentist she knows who is apparently going to try to fix up houses as a sideline. The place is about perfect for us. It is not located as close to my job as I would like, but I can get my butt out of bed and make it into work in about 20 minutes. Right now I am checking out a web page that sells all sorts of homewares online, because we have about twice as much space as we used to have and we have the money to replace some of the stuff that Jan thinks needs to go. Of course she is talking about my stuff, which is mostly left over stuff from my college dorm room and the places I shared with the guys I lived with when I was going to college. That of course is a bunch of cheap stuff that I got from the side of the road.
Of course when you are a broke college student and you see a couch sitting on the curb it can look pretty good to you. One of the guys that I lived with actually had a table that he made by stacking a bunch of pizza boxes on to each other. He thought it was cool, but of course it was just a bunch of card board boxes and there is not much way you can make that look too cool. It looks like you can not afford to pay for a real table in fact, which was partly the truth. The rest of us would get stuff from a yard sale when we needed to get furniture. That was incredibly cheap so long as you were not too choosy about it it.
