I told daisy_knotwise that I wanted to replace it, so on Saturday, we headed over to Staples to look at some chairs I'd seen online, because buying a chair without sitting in it is a recipe for discomfort.
I found the most likely chair and tried it out. It was ok, but not wonderful.
And then I saw the other chair. I sat in it and its two sibling models and decided that this one was going home with me.
Except that it wasn't in stock and had to be ordered from the warehouse, so it arrived here on Tuesday. Katie and Julie, seeing the big box, were going to give me no peace until it was assembled, so assembled it was and then hauled upstairs.
So I am now the proud owner of a Tempur-Pedic TP9000 chair that is apparently a Staples exclusive. My old desk chair has migrated to bedroom for Gretchen to use when on the computer there.
And I am, so far, quite comfortable. :)
