Some Assembly Required

It was nice getting back into our normal routine this week but boy, am I ready for the weekend.

Number one on my to-do list for this weekend is to assemble our dining table so we have something to eat on.  Up until now we’ve been using the small table we bought when we were in college. It didn’t expand and it was a tight squeeze to fit any more than four people around it.  Also the chairs were wiggly and close to breaking.

I had thought about building a table in woodworking class but knew I wouldn’t be able to finish one before next December (there’s no class during the summer) so we’ve been on the lookout for one to buy.  I saw a set at Costco that was a good deal so we bit the bullet and bought it yesterday and my lovely neighbors/friends helped me schlep it home in their pickup truck.

Last night I gave away our old set so assembling the new set has a, um, certain sense of urgency.  I thought it would be easy to get rid of since we were giving it away for free and I had a lot of responses to my ad.  The first person to response told me she would be by at 8pm to pick it up so N and lugged it out to the driveway.  And then when I messaged her to let her know it was in the driveway SHE TOLD ME SHE HAD CHANGED HER MIND.  Super frustrating!  I messaged back and forth with some of the other people that had expressed interested and finally found someone who actually picked it up.  

Anyway…I hope you have a good weekend.  When you’re sitting at your already-assembled dining table enjoying a meal think of me.  See you next week!

  1. It was super easy to assemble although dealing with all the leftover packing materials makes me miss buying from a place that deliveres and hauls away the trash.
