Three very large & heavy boxes from Cost-CO. I love saying Cost-CO it can easily sound very sing-songy.
A couple weeks ago, I took the leap, as the Man wasn’t going to do it. And I purchased two bedroom sets for the kids. They have such awesome deals, you can get a bed frame minus the mattress, a chest and/or dresser, and a night table, all for the price of ONE Ikea bed, the GOOD beds, at Ikea that is.
Seriously. Is that not a deal? They are really solid too. I only know this as it was impossible to move them. Heh.
I neglected to tell the Man. No it wasn’t because of the funds, it was an OBVIOUS deal. It’s just, putting furniture together is not his idea of a fun way to spend 9 plus hours.
Perhaps it’s his lack of use of instructions, perhaps it is the lack of instructions, perhaps it’s the procrastinator in him, perhaps there is some Mr. Fix-it gene he was not born with, my Man NO-LIKEY furniture assembly.
Don’t get me wrong, he can totally put things together, but it did take him a full year before he even attempted to put Jackson’s Red Ryder tricyle together. I do understand that he was not fully able to ride it yet, but really was he given the chance?
I actually put the kids adirondack chairs together but unfortunately due to lack of actual assembly talent, only one of three has survived.
So as I tweeted my freak out that only 3 boxes arrived, and frantically checked my email notification to realize that perhaps there should be at LEAST 3 more, I soon realized, DAMN that would make 6 boxes.
Am I going to put this all together?? I have two baby showers to attend on the same day!?!?!
I imagine that this should get completed sometime in the year 2015.
