You know what? This table is the fourth table that I've put in this space. All the others that came before, they just didn't feel right. I was never really happy with any of them. They were too big, too small, the wrong scale, etc., etc.. I've invested a small fortune in dining tables and chairs (including the latest set of chairs, which isn't going to work once again). I could have purchased a high end set for all of the money I've wasted. And you know what else? I actually like this latest, inherited from my mother table the best. I mean I really, really like it. Love it in fact, and the bench, which I bought for a very reasonable $35 years ago. While I haven't always had a place for the bench, I've always made a place for it in storage when not in use.
I'm not sure what my point is here, other than to make public the fact that I waste a lot of money trying to achieve perfection. Unfortunately, the chase only makes me more flawed.
This post was inspired by this lovely blogger's post.
