Coffee Table

Last Sunday I bought a coffee table from Ikea. Here's what it looks like:

Okay, I know, not that impressive, but honestly this is a big step. For the past two days the coffee table has taken up residence in the back seat of my car. You see the box was way to heavy for me to lift into the house by myself and unfortunately I couldn't bring home the nice gentleman who helped me load it into my car at Ikea. So, I figured I would just open the box and take the pieces out one by one. Unfortunately, for the past two days it's been pouring rain.

But as you can see by the photographic evidence the coffee table has made it into the house! I have to tell you though it was quite the undertaking. As my neighbors watched on, probably thinking there goes the crazy white girl again, I opened the box and proceeded to take the pieces out one by one. Until I got to the glass. Knowing my history with broken glass I knew that if I took the glass out of the box it would never make it onto the top of the coffee table. So instead I decided to leave it in the box with the top of the table to protect it and bring the whole box in. It was challenging, requiring a stop on the street, sidewalk and front steps but I am happy to say it made it without breaking.

Now the question is, how long will my coffee table remain in pieces in my living room?

This is not the professional woman in action - I expected at least the table to be finished but with at least one part left over!!!
