We were young

This is a selfish post from a single woman longing for a vacation who wishes more of her friends were available for fun.

It used to be pretty easy to organize a getaway with girlfriends. The biggest challenges were cost and scheduling time away from work. The former came into play more than the latter – in our twenties, none of us were “indispensable” at work – at least yet.

In 2002, I went to Grand Cayman with two girlfriends who didn’t know each other, but trusted me when I said “you’ll be compatible.” They were. We had a fabulous time in a beautiful place.

These days

In the past seven days, I have:

Twisted my left ankle, hitting the deck – actually N 4th Street in Brooklyn – landing on my right, previously broken wrist.

Note: this is an old x-ray. I’m skipping the doctor this time.

The elusive sofa table!

Do you ever get the feeling that if you could just find/do/accomplish this one thing, your life would be instantly awesome? That’s how I feel right now about finding a sofa table or console to go behind my couch like in the photo below.

The sofa table of my desires continues to elude me. I sent a private message to this Etsy seller Recycled Brooklyn asking for a quote on a custom table. No reply. My guess is that his business is that strong. Good for him, if so.

This console is nice too (and reasonably priced) but the sellers are in the DC area. Shipping would just about double the cost of the item. I’m trying to find something in the tri-State area.

In case you’re hunting for a console too, here are others I have spotted:

  • Rogers console table┬ávia @NyenDesigns – I like the style, but it’s more than I am willing to spend
  • A sofa table from thezenartist
  • Wood from a salvaged Japanese barge. SO cool, but also ships from CA.
  • I should just buy this one.
