Couch potato

That is what I am going to be this weekend.  I was supposed to have a day off tomorrow but Mr. Brilliant needs my help on a job. However, Saturday this is where I will be..... on the ugliest couch with the biggest pain in the bootay slipcover.  Which actually brings me to my original intention of this post.  I really thought I just had to have a denim slipcover (real cottage shabby chic) to cover this hideous- fake leather -dark green- heavier than an elephant- hide a bed-which came with the house -couch. (Along with the bunk beds that had to be cut with a chain saw to get out of the house-another post.)  I had searched high and low for denim.  Yes nothing else would do (except a new couch, which is not happening anytime soon, partially due to the fact that our house is on a very steep hill  and the couch weighs a gajillion (again, lurve that word) pounds) Side bar here: I do use a lot of parentheses in my writing, but hey it is MY blog.  Okay back to the story.  Alas, I finally found a denim cover at Kohl's. Hmm, right size, denim, price??? I was willing to pay the $69.99 (Why do stores do this?? I can round! One cent, really??? ) Anyway I was thrilled when I checked out and much to my surprise it was on clearance for $29.99.  Now I know why it was on clearance..... Ugh!! Needless to say a new couch and a big bonfire are next on the agenda.  Slipcovers are for people who don't have kids,pets, or company and are NOT couch potatoes.  
So not how it is supposed to look!!
