    I like to pinch of slap my wife's rump in public, then maybe give a "oh sorry, thought you were someone else" or something to the effect.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    I do the same, but when my wife says, "WTF?" I just smile and say, "What? It leaped right at me. Control that thing." Sometimes this is just shortened to, "What? It leaped!"
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    So... I totally dropped the ball of the Part one of "Feet First" portion of the program this weekend...
    FAIL!

    However, this occurred because the past two days my head has been STOOOOOPID and I have had a nonstop evil mutant migraine monster in residence.
    I'm hoping that he's going to vacate the premises soon so that his little brother, my normal everyday headache bearing monster, can come back and clean up the mess the big fella has left in there.
    I'm sure there is damage... bits of squishy brain... papers flung about never to be in proper order again, dirty laundry strewn... and I think I spied him sporting about in my favorite fuchsia lace boy shorts too... UGH!

    Also, I need a new chair...
    I want a RECLINER.
    I currently have a big, BIG as in HUGE, leather chair and ottoman.
    I think I want a smallish recliner.
    Leather is a must... White German Shepherd. LOL
    Anyone have a European style recliner... If so, how do you like it?

    we have two pieces of sitting furniture in the living room: a futon and a rocker glider+ottoman. some day we'll have nice, comfy things, and i think that day will come after the youngest is potty capable!

    so no experience here. sorry about your migraine, that sucks ass.

    My ex had what I think was a European style recliner. It always slid back into the upright position if you didn't get it juuuust right. Also it's really easy to slide off the leather.

    I have an old (at least 20 years) La-z boy recliner that was my grandfather's. The reclining handle works really well to get it to just the right tilt. Excellent for naps.

    My problem with my HUGE leather chair/ottoman (other than it's a bit too broke in, so it's sliding towards broke down ) is that... it's basically one of those chair and a halfs... maybe not quite, but really WIDE!
    So I sit, with my feet curled up in the chair, to the left or right... with one elbow up on an arm, and my laptop resting on my knee and the arm of the chair.
    When I get tired of sitting left, I shift to the right... and so on.
    Sometimes I slide way down caddy-corner, kinda laying with feet on the ottoman, but then head is at a squished angle.
    Actually sitting straight up in it is pretty uncomfortable at this point.

    If I had the room I'd keep it and put it in a corner for my GSD to use as a puppy bed... he loves to usurp my chair and curl up in it.

    This seating position is less than ideal for my back/neck/shoulders.
    And I've been seeing a torture specialist, aka massage therapist but I refuse to call her that because 'massage' sounds like a nice relaxing fun thing... what she does is NOT nice, relaxing, or fun.
    I had to start seeing the massage therapist because my neurologist is talking about giving me some sub-occipital block injections in my neck as he thinks that muscle issues could be causing part of my headache/migraine problems.

    I just HATE those big squishy looking recliners.
    And most of the non-squishy looking ones have very traditional styling... too trad for me.
    And the few more modern ones I see have very hard seating.
    Meh!
    LazyBoy doesn't have the Euros... but Ashley does.
    I'll have to go have a sit and see.

    Something like this... View Large Product Images
    Though I'd rather a dark color.

    Or something like this... View Large Product Images
    Which looks more modern but squishy/comfy at the same time.

    Dunno of another showroom with the euro chairs locally... so I'll have to base my judgement just on the ones at Ashley and purchase elsewhere if I want more color/style options or whatever.
    Haven't found anything at Lay-Z-Boy that strikes my fancy... either TOO crazy, poofy, squishy looking or too hard and sleek looking.
    But there is a shop nearby, so I'll be in there test sitting about 100 chairs.
    *hate shopping*
    For me it's NEVER as simple as "Oh, OK... I like that one."
    Noooooooo... I have to analyze it, and research it, and just drive myself generally nuts over it!

    ooo the second looks comfy. i'm the same way if i'm spending over $100 on something, it has to be a carefully researched decision (with exception of my $40mp3 player, which i shopped around for). i can honestly say i've never been furniture shopping; with the exception of our mattresses, everything else has been second hand, usually gifted to us because someone else bought new furniture. (of course if i was dealing with pain, i'm sure i'd put more emphasis on comfy furniture)

    Ahh... but we've been at this for almost 15 years!

    The first 5 or so we lived with our combined cruddy single people furniture and some gifted, already used stuff.
    And we sometimes buy gently used when that works... like my treadmill.

    We are a two income family as well because I'm medically retired, which means I still get paid.
    And 100% of medical for all my surgeries, and the SCS appliances and wiring, is covered too.

    I grew up poor, worked hard, and even if I won the lottery the value of a dollar is permanently imprinted upon my brain.
    New furniture and a fancy house does NOT make the person.
    Husband and I actually live in an old house.
    And old solid, block, slab foundation, FL ranch... built in 1950.
    Not exactly old enough to be classic, just old and solid.
    We kept having friends ask us when were were going to sell and trade up during the building boom.
    Umm... never.

    We would love to move to a slightly smaller house on a larger piece of land... but, meh.
    I think one day he and I will jump ship and retire to Panama or something so he can fish all day.

    i wasn't implying anything at all. someday i'd like to have nice stuff because i like to look at things that are aesthetically pleasing, but we're 5 (and 2 cats) living on 1 income, and some of "us" do impulsive things which devalue our personal property; like carve into things with a pocket knife (5yo), or randomly decide to bring a glass of milk into the living room and dump it on the futon (2 yo). i guess i shouldn't say aesthetically pleasing so much as interesting.
