Wednesday, Assemble!

Thursday, February 27, 2014

The FedEx guy showed up an hour earlier than expected. I never know when they'll knock on my door, UPS is on the dot every time, but FedEx is always a guess. I was attempting to have my mom help me bring the stuff up the stairs, but because it showed up earlier than expected, I had to bring it up by myself because I wasn't going to let it sit there at the bottom of the stairs for people to trip over while I was waiting for my mom to show up.

I started out the day with breakfast, like usual.

I was still hungry around 10 am, so I started my small meals that early. It could have been because of all the box moving form the day before.

I had this about an hour later. It was my homemade bread with peanut butter (I use stuff with just peanuts and salt) and Nutella. I also finished off the last of the dried peaches.

The box showed up and I hauled it up, then got it sorted so we could start working on it. My mom did show up to help me assemble it, and come to find out, I really did need the help, especially near the end, where I brought my husband in on the assembly too.

Mom stopped for a snack, so I did too.

Although we were still assembling (it took a total of 5 hours just for assembly), I needed dinner and my husband brought it home (I asked nicely, I knew I'd be too busy to cook), so I had one plate of KFC. I love their biscuits!

Just before bedtime (and it might have been wrong to eat right before I laid down) I had the last of the cinnamon bread my mom brought yesterday. I got the last two pieces and decided an orange would be good with it too. Yes, I buttered my toast with real butter.

All that hard work paid off, my daughter loves her new bed set and now she can clean up her room properly. I'll be sore for a few days, especially in the legs. It's like having rocks for muscles, they're tied up and need to be unknotted. Plenty of mild walking and stretching will be needed to fix that.

It's been hard to sleep with these legs all tied up. It will work itself out though. I'm feeling accomplished after all that hard work.

    So glad your daughter got the cute bed set.

I am scrambling trying to find a return receipt for UPS. They picked up part of a daybed that was mistakenly sent to us. Got a credit and acknowledgement from Walmart. Now they say they didn't get it and want numbers from the return. It was over a month ago and I think I threw it out after they acknowledged.
