When there's no one around to say no

My wife is off dealing with the latest aging parent explosion. I took the money that would have been spent on a bed and breakfast for the two of us on our vacation this week and bought myself a recliner instead:

I had actually wanted to support a local biz, but it didn’t feel safe with the new Rona variants out and about. Wound up buying online.


That is a nice recliner.

Correction: you don’t seem to be in trouble. I read your post wrong.


Not yet, that happens next week. Well, the recliner part of it. I’m certain comments I made about my mother-in-law this week have not been well-received.

hell whats the worse thing that could happen, buy her one too

She has a relatively new one. She was using an old rocker that has sentimental value to her, but she could no longer sit in because it’s wearing out. So she got herself a new recliner and “gifted” me the rocker. It’s now even more worn out and hurts my back too, but I get stinkeye any time I mention getting myself a new chair as well. She wants to keep this one around.

I don’t know what we’re doing with the old chair after next week, but I refuse to use it any longer. That ought to be another fun discussion.

Happy reclining.

Oh, yes. I’m binge watching all the seasons of The Six Million Dollar Man right now.

The only problem with recliners is you’ll curse every chair you will have to sit in again for not reclining.

…and that’s why I bought it.

I don’t do recliners because I’d be falling asleep while watching TV if I had a good one. Some of them are so comfy.
