We have been in Chicago for a little over 2 months now and I am proud to say that we have furniture! We originally subleased a place for the first month which was "furnished" with what we would call "D.I. Rejects." For the second month we spent our free time lounging on our air matress, eating on the hardwood floors, and trying to access TV shows via the internet (our laptop is standing in as the tv for now). Eventually we will splurge on a real bed but for now we are enjoying our loveseat and table.
