I Do Not Like Furniture Shopping

June 19, 2008 at 12:52 pm 7 comments

We just realized we’ve already been to the “miracle furniture place” that I thought was going to be a totally new place to inspire me.  I don’t want to go at all now.  I could not decide there. 

I hate do not like furniture shopping.  Truly.

As much of a “joy” as people say it can be…it is like cutting off my left foot or something for me.  I hate do not like it.  We don’t both like the same things, the same things aren’t comfortable for us, and it’s hard to find things to fit your space and know exactly what you’re getting.

I also hate do not like car shopping, and house shopping, and bathing-suit shopping as well, now that I think about it, nor going to the hairdresser (which is why I generally don’t–I do my own hair as I have time), or the dentist, or the OBGYN, just to cover all my bases. 

Things that require developing a taste and sense of things going together and knowing what you want…I do not like to have to decide.  I never liked tests in school where you had to choose one argument over another…generally, in my mind, both had their place, depending.

That is why I asked God to pick my husband, and he did–I simply never could have decided on my own.

Even with help, shopping for furniture, I will have to decide, and bear the consequences.  And it’s just not worth it to me.  

God needs to go get me some furniture.  That’s pretty much it.

    Who Cares? Sounds to me like God needs to Save lives, as opposed to getting your furniture.

    😀 I have no idea who any of you are curious friends are…sounds like you have a mutliple personality disorder going on there.

    I figure that if God is big enough to handle the weather, all space and time, and still have time to count the number of hairs on my head…he has plenty energy available to handle my decorating quandries. He’s been preparing our mansions for over two thousand years–he’s already got it on his mind anyway…and he loves embriodery and details on silver if you look at the temple.

    God has my Interior Decorator of the Year award! 😀 See, I have this all worked out.

    Ah, so, looking at my stats, someone from Georgetown College visiting from a frat house decided to pop in and get cute…Note, I was out of town Monday through Wednesday!

    You guys are a mess. Aren’t you supposed to be loading the van?

Sifting the joy from the mundane:

recording, photographing, learning, creating.

I am married to the love of my life, as we raise three children, learning the ways of grace.


Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)



"We shall not waste our time in looking for extraordinary experiences in our life, but live by pure faith, ever watchful and ready for His coming by doing our day-to-day duties with extraordinary love and devotion." ~Mother Teresa



"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not come. We have only today. Let us begin." ~Mother Teresa




A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in it's vicinity freshen into smiles. --Washington Irving




When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. -Harriet Beecher Stowe
