I got my mom to help me run errands yesterday. She was happy to do so because I bought a futon mattress and cover. Pictures to follow in 2 weeks--the cover is on order. It's white with a black vine and leaf pattern and the leaves are colored in with aqua, green and some other colors. Matches everything and will look so good. It's also dry clean only, which means we will all have to be SO careful, right, cats? No eating flowers and puking on the futon.
I'm also taking off 3 days at the end of the month to list on eBay, organize and spring clean the place. Look for tedious lists of accomplishment starting the 23rd.
