First, an update... I'm staying in the house with my brother Ken. Matthew isn't living here but his things still are for the time being. Things have settled down and everyone seems to be less stressed out.
So I've been shopping like a crazy person to replace everything I'll need when Matthew's things move out. I bought a microwave, bookshelf, sheets, comforter, mattress for Ken, sheets for Ken... I've been all over craigslist and found a couch (actually more a love seat due to space constraints in the living room) I really like. It's from Ikea and it's leather and was only $200. It fits perfectly.
The guy we got the couch from was also selling a dining room table and chairs which I didn't really like and don't have room for yet anyway so I turned that down. Then he said he had a bed he was trying to give away (!!!) and it turned out to be full size to match Ken's new mattress. However, this bed came with a mattress too. Mind you, I had just bought the new mattress two days before. I said "maybe I can take it back" and took the bed along with the mattress. Not really my style but what the hell...it's free.
