The one about pillows

Some people like pillows, some don't. We are pillow people, since we sit on a couch-one of us at each end we have separate pillow needs. I like a soft pillow in my lap to rest a book or magazine on and also a pillow to my side opposite the couch arm. DH likes a pillow between couch arm and self and one down towards his lower back for support. Now the problem...I do like the pillows to look like they haven't been through a war. So to solve that dilemma, I have two very firm pillows-shown here in green and tan. I also have to "show" pillows which I covered in cute Amy Butler fabric-the stripe and floral. These pillows are supposed to be put aside when people want to sit on the couch. Not to be used. What you don't see are the two soft pillows which we keep close to the couch. Now the problem, DH wants to use the pillows however he wants to, thinks I am silly for wanting "show" pillows. What do you think? Am I crazy? I won't hold it against you if you do but please let me know in a sort of unscientific study....

thanks....

All my couch pillows are ok to squish. However, my silky orange pillow in the chair is not. It was placed in the chair because it gets sat on less than the couch so less chance of squishage. However, Karl likes to move it close in front of the tv when playing videogames, thus squishing the pretty pillow. Frowny-face for that! :(

Okay now that is easy to remember. Amy's house, Orange Pillow - No Squishy. My house Blue (designer) Pillows - No Squishy.

Unfortunately it's not all that simple - Karin forgot to mention there are four other pillows in and around the couch and chairs. A soft squishy dark red one, two green ones and a small odd shape cream colored one. They all have their special rules too that only become know when I go to use them.
That is a total of NINE pillows.

Yes you could say we are pillow people.
