You Want To See... Where I Unwind

At this pace, I will have these finished by the end of the summer... hopefully.

From the You Want To See WHAT?! series, Krysten asked to see my favorite place to unwind.
My story goes like this, I live at home with my mom... I occupy the basement (I tend to call it my cave).  So I'm limited to where I can unwind without being bothered.  The place I picked is not the ideal place in my mind, but it's where I end up.

Ready to see it?
It's my couch!

 I have my laptop sitting off to the left of what you see here, so I can play online or play with my photos.  I have my blanket (which was crocheted by my dads wifey) always sitting on that couch with me (even on the hottest of summer days), my pillows; it's all around comfort.  I can sit and watch TV from here, I can eat my dinner here, I can nap here... I can do anything I want from this place.

This couch also serves as my bed come darkness... why you ask?!  It's kind of gross but fairly simple and like two-fold... or tri-fold.  My bedroom is directly below my mom's bedroom... my mom has a boyfriend... the floor/ceiling between us is... thin (can I stop here?!).  On the night's where this is a problem, I go sleep on the couch, with the TV on.  I then find myself enjoying falling asleep to the sound and light of the TV {random fact about me: I hate sleeping in complete darkness}, so I find myself there the next night... and the next night.. and so on.  I don't have a TV in my bedroom, nor do I want one in there.  So, I have a hard time breaking myself from a habit that was supposed to be just a one night thing.

Anyhow... I'm glad to report that last night I slept in my bed.. for the first time in a LONG time!  I hope to keep this trend up.. at least until there is an issue again.

To the others who have requests in and unfulfilled by me... be patient, I'm getting to all of them!

Our couch is SOOO comfy that I have no problem sometimes sleeping there. Probably a bad habit to have, oops!

That is a GREAT reason for sleeping on your couch! I'm so glad your mom is still getting some! Gives me hope!

True story, when my dad would go on deployment, the couch became my bed. I can't explain it. I loved falling asleep in the living room. The tv would be on with the noise dim, and the hum of a fan going.
It's weird.

I grew up with a purple suede couch that my mom upholstered... glad to see I'm not the only one!!

Also nice to know your mom is... happy. :)
