Well, staples delivery guy delivered the box with yet another office chair for us to assemble,,DD had everything put together by the time I got home from work, so we finally finished that project,, the holes still were not lined up correctly on that one either!!
We went to the credit union so we could make some deposits and came back home to do our daily things,, Not much new here,, just doing laundry and dishes,, easy day at work,,
I am reminded how blessed we are ; a dear friend took her dad down to Ann Arbor to the University of Michigan hospital for surgery,, he has been in constant pain for over two years, but was too stubborn to get seen by a doc,, now it is so severe they do not know how much relief they can give him,, I pray for all of them today,,,

Went to staples with DD to buy a new office chair that was on sale, of course!! My middle name!! $170 chair for $79.99 for two days only.. I had some gift cards to use there, so off we go!

Now, anybody who actually ever reads any of my blogs should have a clue where this is going.
I pay for the chair, buy the added three year warranty that goes beyond the manufacturers five year one,, so if ANYTHING happens to this chair , they send me my entire purchase price and I get to keep the chair.
Worker zooms the carton with chair inside, out to my car, loads it in,,, I was willing to pay the $7 to assemble it, but then it would not fit in my car,even when I put the back seats down..
We got it home, DD(she did 99%) and I get everything assembled EXCEPT the left arm.. ten minutes to do the whole chair up to this point,,BUT Linda's Law: one of the metal stems that hold the threads where the screws go, is not lined up with others,, like one inch off-kilter,, so for an hour we both tugged, pulled unscrewed, re-screwed, etc, sore, swollen fingers and my BP soaring,, I call the help center.
They tell me to call the store to get a replacement, wince this has to be a manufacturer's error.DUH!

I call staples, they tell me the same, so we load the chair up, stuff it in my back seat,, and we return it, get all of the paper work so they can ship me another one tomorrow..

Not too often that you will hear this in a normal conversation, but here goes, "We were one screw away from sitting on a comfy chair."

so there it is, our chair adventure... the sequel will follow on Wednesday when the new one arrives on the porch!! More assembly!

    So why do you buy new office hair? Did you need it or DD? emoticon

So you go from shopping for hair to buying a chair, you kind of lost me there.

If you take life with a grain of salt your BP will not rise to levels that are not good for you.

Have a great Tuesday my friend.

    Spring is coming! We had cold and wintery weather last week and here it is 50' today with even nicer weather forecasted for the rest of the week. I'm expecting my flowers to be poking their heads out of their beds soon. I'm sure there is still some winter to look forward to but I'm sure sure going to enjoy the spring-like days we're getting.

Saturday, in the dark,,,

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Went to bed to relax watching tv, woke up 8 hours later, sitting up, freezing cold(we turn our thermostat down to 54 at night). Holy Wah!!!!!!
I was sitting ON my new glasses!! How the heck did they get underneath a huge body that is sound asleep?
I cannot believe I slept for 8 solid hours!! I have not done that since last August when I was lazily drowsing in my cabin on Lake Superior!!! IT was a very rough week....
