The Queen’s chair
When my husband and I bought our home we inherited furniture from our family members. A few couches and other things. For years we used these and as our family grew, well we out grew the couches we had. There was no room to cuddle comfortably.
So we decided to buy a sectional. We went shopping with the kids, I know in hindsight it was not the best idea. The four of them tested every piece of furniture in the store. I let them go I mean who better to help pick out something for us than the kids right?
I found the perfect couch for us, a nice big sectional with a long chair at the end. I sat in it and felt so comfortable and spoiled. I felt like Queen. Since then that part of the couch is mine. It is called the Queens chair and I love it.
Everyone knows that when I come into the living room no matter how comfy you are if you are in the Queens chair you are losing your place. I cuddle with a blanket and yes I share the chair but it is mine. It is my precious.
My husband finds this quite funny but I explain I am kind of like Archie Bunker from All in the family. (Darn if that doesn’t show my age) Or Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory for the younger generation. It is the perfect place to sit, the best view of the television. Close to the window and the heater.
This is my chair where I sit and be pampered. I fall asleep on it, read on it, talk on the phone and yes I twitter and blog on it. I socialize with friends on it, them on the rest of the couch and me in my special place.
I do feel like a Queen when I am sitting or lounging on it. I almost am in my own little world. I think every woman should have one. I think every woman should feel like a Queen. If you don’t have a spot I suggest you make one. A place that is just for you and no one else. Unless of course you want to share but still in the sharing you know it’s your place.
I think my next project will be a mom cave. Batman and his bat cave will be put to shame when I am done.
How about you? Do you have a place that is yours and yours alone? Do you have a place where you can feel like a Queen? I would love hear your comments.
