Persistence Pays and Clearing the Deck

I wanted to get rid of my uncomfortable sofa and had a picture in my mind of what I wanted. Even though I wrote here that I didn't think I'd be getting a new-to-me sofa this year, I kept looking, and finally found exactly what I was looking for.  It's even vinyl.  And really cheap.  We'll be picking it up this weekend.  One of my characteristics that I most like - I don't give up easily.

Which leads into item number two.  Mr Third Date never stopped texting me, even after he no-showed on a Saturday morning date almost two months ago without apology, email, call, or anything.  Somehow I let it go, and we got close to getting together again this week.  I had a chance to think on Friday as I was mowing the lawn (good time to think, mowing the lawn!), and I came inside and cleared the decks.  No more Mr Third Date, about 6 weeks too late.  Sometimes not giving up easily means things last longer than they should.


  1. Heave-ho! You don't need a flaky, unreliable guy cluttering your life.

  2. Congratulations on both fronts - for being persistent where it pays, and for ditching the louse! Hurray for you!

  3. If he's a no show, no apology, no call, it's all for his convenience to keep leading you along. Good riddance!
    And I LOVE the couch. I have a sleeper that has never been comfortable. First it was too stiff and now it is starting to sag - a lot - but still not the most comfortable seat in town.
