My Couch has Become My Purgatory

Is it just me? It’s like a sick bed. There are other places in my house I could spend my time, but I don’t.

I work in my office and I clean the rest of the house, but when I sit down ( which is something I’m quite adept at) I always hold on the same corner of the couch. In part, it’s because I hope to lure my small dog to my side. He’s adorable, but a skeptic. I had hoped he would be a lap dog, but generally the best I get is when he deigns to snug his back end into my thigh.
