Ugh! Don't even ask me how many hours I spent trying to figure out this After and Before Rollover code! I even had instructions...sigh.
For a long time now, I have grown weary of looking at the mess in my backroom where I design my jewelry. Last weekend I got this brilliant idea to see what kind of furniture I could find at IKEA that would give me workspace and storage space. I wanted to move everything to my unused office room so that I can close the door and people who visit me would not see all the bead hoarding I have done.
Well last Monday by sweet neighbor, Paddy, who is always up for an adventure, made the trip with me over to IKEA. We had been once before when they first opened, well over a year ago, but not since then. I saw what I wanted online but we decided to walk the store just for the exercise. Little did I know that I was expected to pull my own boxes off of the shelf, load them on a cart, and wheel them up to the cash register. After paying for them we had to load them into the car by our self. Yikes! I wonder if they have lawsuits out the kazoo from people hurting themselves trying to rustle up the boxes off of the shelves in their warehouse. I had to ask a very nice woman shopper passing by me if she would mind holding my cart while I maneuvered the second huge box on to it. THEN the gal at the cash register had the nerve to act annoyed when she could not scan the price code because I hadn't loaded the 1000 lb. box in the right direction! Paddy smiled at me while I "politely" shared my opinion with the cashier on "allowing" customers to fetch their own boxes.
I have assembled massive amounts of furniture in my lifetime but I can't say I've done any in the last three years. This was far too much work for me. What a pain it was trying to shove all those little dowels in the holes and then try to get the other holes to line up. That's when I decided...no more IKEA for Me.
I'm very happy with how things are progressing and I still have more to organize but I thought I would share what I have accomplished here on Mary Engelbreit Monday since my office/workspace is filled with ME stuff.
