Dude, Where’s My Cushion?

Check it.

I am so close, soooooo close, to being done with chair #1. All that’s left to do is rig up these crazy little cover things for that jacked up area at the front of the arms and, dun dun dun, sew the cushion cover.

I am majorly nervous about sewing the cushion cover. I’ve never made a box cushion before or sewn anything with a zipper. Tres intimidating. Since this whole upholstery project has me feeling more than a little drained in the whole “learning new things” department, I think I’m going to wait until the weekend to get started on it so I don’t totally mess it up in my state of exhaustion slash hating all things related to these wing chairs.

I know I’ll be so glad when they’re done, but there are no words for how much I hate this project right now.

I’m gonna change the subject to avoid a whining rampage over here. I’ve been so busy going on and on about the wing chairs this week that I neglected to share with you the best thing that has ever happened to Living Well on the Cheap.

Lenovo laptop from Best Buy

Y’all don’t even know how big this is for me. My old computer was a gift for my 21st birthday…that’s more than five years ago. That thing saw me through a year and a half of undergrad and two years of grad school. The old lady was still adequate for basic web surfing and word processing these past few years, but after six months of daily blogging she just could not keep up anymore. After a minor freak out I had a few weeks ago when she just wouldn’t turn on one morning we decided it was time to make a change.

I drooled over macbooks for a week or so before deciding it just wasn’t in the cards for us right now, then moved on to researching the best possible deal I could find. This little Lenovo has everything we want and need, and at just under $400 the price takes the sting out of saying no to Apple.

It’s super fast. I feel sure that as soon as I get used to the new keyboard I’ll be a blogging machine. The good news for y’all is no more excuses about how I couldn’t get pictures or video uploaded wah wah wah. No more technological difficulties to blame my problems on! My poor work ethic will be laid bare for the world to see.
