Three Left

Anyone who has sat at our kitchen table knows that it is a dangerous gamble. We are now down to three chairs and who knows how soon before the next one goes down.

We bought six chairs from Sam's club when Noah was an infant. He turns 12 in May. I guess our $250 investment has just about run out.

This cracks me up - I was wondering when it would go down. A moment of silence for the departed...

I am glad it wasn't me on it when it finally went down. $250 for 12 years is a DEAL!!

Go back to Sam's club already and get a new table before the membership expires. They have some nice tables that I've seen. You don't even have enought chairs for your family.

I love it when there is a legitimate excuse to go shopping and the husband can't make any waves about it.

12 years? Amazing. Glad I wasn't in it when it went down.

This is eerie, because 9 1/2 years ago when we moved to Orange County, we bought 8 chairs at Ikea. We have four left and one I even sat in when I was pregnant with Eli and went crashing down to the floor! I almost broke my tailbone... NOT a good thing when you're pregnant! When Ren mentioned this incident in a talk, an older lady in our ward gave us her old table and chair set which was bigger and sturdier. Now we're watching those chairs start to break too!
