I was moving into a new place with a much smaller living room and our sectional was bigger than anybody had ever seen. So, we took measurements and found that we wouldn't have much room in our new place to walk around it. Everybody including my fiance told me to sell it. I couldn't, the couch had meaning to me. It was the first piece of furniture my fiance and I bought together and we both would actually fall asleep on it every night, wake up and walk to bed. However, moving day was getting closer and it was hanging over my head. All I kept thinking was I really am going to have to sell it. It's not going to fit and how, would we get it out? When we first tried getting it in our old apartment we made many attempts. We finally got the couch in the place by climbing on top of the moving truck, walking a plank, over to the deck on the 2nd floor and passing it threw the large window that we had to remove from the frame. I didn't want to go through that again. It was extremely dangerous. Anyways, the people moving into our new place offered us their neighbors used couch that they took and was going to give us $100/mo for a year in exchange for our couch. I hadn't seen the couch that they had and so, I was on the fence. I really didn't want to lose the couch but afraid of getting it out of there and it not fitting. So moving day came, the new tenants moved in and you could tell they really wanted our couch. For me though they made the decision easier, the couch that they were going to give us in return was a very worn out green leather couch that was sticky and smelled like soy sauce. I decided to keep my couch and the new tenants were good sports about it. They helped us take it out the window and we were able to take it away. It still was difficult, but well worth it. When we got the couch into our new place we realized we were nervous about nothing. Even though we had measured it accurately we managed to make it fit with enough room. Now everyone who knows us and has seen the place, who once said to get rid of the couch, says that the couch completes the place. Although we don't feel quite at home yet because we are still surrounded by construction it's nice to have that one piece of furniture that has become an integral part in out lives.
