New chair and a fall

January 7th, 2011 at 02:47 pm

I bought my chair at the grocery store. It was regularly priced at 499.99 and on sale for 249.00. I got 5% back using my credit card and 249 gas points. I paid almost $20 in taxes.

My dad fell on the ice bringing it in. I felt so bad. He hit his head and shoulder. I'm sure he's hurting, but he shrugs it off. I'm really glad he didn't break anything. The chair was in two pieces so it wasn't that hard to bring in and they loaded it at the store. It fits well although it is 6" wider than my last one. Very comfy though. It's a dark brown.

He took my old chair and plans to see if the Goodwill will take it. I can't imagine anyone wanting it. It's got cuts in the leather and major sections of it are worn off. I think it would be better to just get rid of it. I don't care to have strangers come to my house, since I live alone, so I'm not interested in freecycle or craigslist. If the goodwill doesn't take it he plans to take it to the place I found that will charge $12.

I took him and mom to lunch at Texas Roadhouse as thanks for the help.

I finished reading the library book Shadows Return by Lynn Flewelling. Sci/Fi - pretty good.

    Sorry to hear that your dad fell on the ice. Glad he's ok (or at least letting on that he is - men!)
    Sounds like you got a good deal on the chair.
