But, I decided I wanted to get some things accomplished tonight. So I pulled out the shelf we registered for and I ended up buying with a gift certificate. It is seriously heavy, like ninety pounds, but I managed to wrangle myself to put it together.
No bloodshed, no screaming fits, I just read the instructions and it came together quite nicely.
There were a few prayers to Hephaistos, to be fair...and one shameful thumb-bashing with a hammer. But all in all, I was pretty proud of myself.
But the real drama was putting it in the computer/craft room. Below is the picture of what my previous cabinet looked like.
And now, the same amount of stuff in the new shelf!
I wish I knew why things like this make me so pleased, but I am thoroughly exhausted and thoroughly tickled.
So I'm going to pass out...blissfully fatigued.
