New Furniture

Today I went to Big Lots in search of the great BG deals. My Big Lots had very little to choose from but I did get a few things.
While we were there we found a furniture set we really liked. It was a cute Simmons set. Chocolate brown corduroy sofa, loveseat, and diamond print chair in greens, brown, and tans. I loved that chair. We were all set to buy the furniture when I started to wonder about how well corduroy would hold up in a house with three dogs and a toddler. So, we decided to wait and think about it for a bit before we decide. Which is fine, because we had not intended to buy new furniture right now anyway. Sometime soon would be nice since we are still using This End Up furniture, lol.
Fast forward to tonight. I am in the scrap room, the girls and Fred are in the old part of the house. They start complaining that they smell something burning and there is smoke. We thought our heater was burning. Nope. As it turns out, our water pump seized up and burnt out. What a pain. Now we have no water. Five people and no water, this is not going to be pretty. Hopefully it will be repaired tomorrow. For the time being, we are grateful to have family and friends close by so that we can use the bathroom and shower. We are lucky, it could always be worse.
And, no I did not get much scrapbooking done after that.
