Finally Friday!

Well who would have thought that I would ever be seen with one of these

definitely not me! I think it is hilarious when I see someone who appears to be talking to themselves, but I guess now I will be one of those people :) Shelby got one for Christmas and she convinced me to get one and I figure that since eventually it will be the law, I might as well get used to it now. And let me tell you, it is so nice to not have to hold the phone! Although, it may be dangerous for me as now I have two hands to do more things with while I'm driving, maybe not such a good idea for me!

Anyhow, last night didn't exactly go as planned for me (surprise surprise), and most people that know me, know that I always make plans but rarely follow them. I intend to, but I always seem to get detoured. On my way home last night I stopped at Staples to grab some things for the office. I have been on the quest for a new desk for my room since the one I have from Ikea is pretty large and just a waste of space. I was looking through the furniture at Staples and seen a desk that was on sale for $79.99 and it came with a chair. It is black wood and looks sort of distressed. It is perfect and a good price, too good to pass up. So I got it and the way home I went. The bad thing is, I had to build it. I don't have the a lot of patience for building things but I figured it couldn't be too hard. I started with the chair and had it all put together until it was time to put the seat on and I realized I had the front bar and back bar on wrong, so that meant taking basically the whole chair apart! I was so frustrated. Melinda came up to help me and we just could not get it to work. We took a break and had dinner and came back and I built the desk in about 15 minutes, and Melinda got another screw for the chair and it finally worked.

After that was done I had to take my other desk out and rearrange the new one and it was about 10:30 by that point, so I decided to make a couple more thank you cards and call it a night, no real scrap booking after all!

I did start to read my Sandra Lee book though and probably stayed up too long reading it, but once I pick up a good book, I cant put it down.
So far so good, and I cant wait to read it again tonight.
I hope every one's Friday flys on by!
