We bought a dining room table today!!!
For the past five and a half years, we’ve been eating on a little card table and folding chairs. Totally fitting for my basement apartment when I was living by myself after college. Now that we’re 30 years old and have a kid, it was starting to feel a little pathetic. When we saw a Groupon deal offering $200 of furniture for $40, we jumped on it. And today, with rambunctious toddler in tow, we got ourselves a grown up dining room table!!
Something about all 3 of us being able to sit and have dinner comfortably makes me feel like I’ve got things a little more together. Except for the fact that our first meal on the new table was Taco Bell drive-thru….as Puss in Boots says in the “Shrek the Halls” (which I don’t think we’ll ever stop watching nightly), “I have shamed myself”.
Have you ever had a defning moment that would seem silly to someone else???
