So today I took my ample ass to Costco for a test drive. Found it. Sat on it. Declared it totally doable.
It's not my dream chair. BUT, it is big enough front and back and side to side. It is easy to get in and out of. It's upholstered in a boring but not so bad a-little-bit-nubly gray/brown/tweed that I can live with. And... it's cheap (comparatively speaking).
This very nice Costco guy said that they had just added this furniture on July 1 so it's likely to be in stock for a while. That gives me time to figure out how to get it from the store to here. There is a service called Dolly here in town that is likely my best option.
I had a nice walk around Costco, bought a hot dog and ate it and walked back to the car. I spent $1.50 cash. The first cash I've spent in 8 days. I could have charged it but that just seemed ridiculous.
I did 2 loads of laundry. Now I need to fold the second one and then get on to my crochet project. It's a pattern test that, turns out, I don't love but I promised to do. Probably only take me about 2 more hours to finish.
