I did it!
I assembled a piece of furniture from start to finish. Without leaving pieces off or putting anything on the wrong way. Without having to use a sharpie to color in my mistake. Without the aid of a man. Sure, it took me a good two hours but look what I have accomplished. Finally, a place to put my books.
My mom, the ever-generous person, took me on a Target shopping spree. Oh how I love Target. We spent a couple of hours filling up two carts worth of goodies. And as you can (kind of) see by this photo, I have another piece of furniture to put together- a TV stand. And wouldn't you know it? Right when I am all ready to watch a dvd, my dvd player breaks. Guess I will be going back to Target. (Oh, twist my arm.)
Now if I could just muster the courage to drill holes in my walls for hanging pictures, I'd be a decorating machine.
Today marks the kick off of Anticipation Week, Take 1. My beloved Jenny Two Times will grace the Emerald City with her presence for three nights starting Friday. Yay! I cannot wait. I miss her something fierce. And we have lots to see and do and catch up on.
But before the revelry begins, I have an apartment to clean, curtains to sew, a TV stand to put together, laundry to do, and oh yeah - I've got to go to work. Have I told you guys lately that I really like living here? This new life business. . . it's not so bad.
