Summer Bummer

Summer decided this year to show up unfashionably late. We had about, oh I dunno, 2 weeks of super hot days.I was really disappointed because I was looking forward to the usual summer nights and sleeping with my door open. Not this year. This year if I wanted the door open while sleeping I had to wear sweats or layer on the winter blankies. I was still able to wear shorts most of this season but some days I was freezing my hiney off.  Hopefully next year Summer will learn from her mistake and show up on time.

The Beauty that is IKEA

Yesterday I decided it was time for some new furniture(bed, dresser, wardrobe). I took a field trip to IKEA. Oh that endless maze that it is. After about 30 minutes I decided on this 

 Looks fairly easy right. Especially since the furniture is supposed to be super easy to build. ERRR....Wrong! My Friend Kc & I sat looking at the various pieces scratching our heads. We tried and failed miserably. There are screws that need to be put in and just a regular screwdriver and some elbow grease will not do. I'm going to arm myself with a power tool thingie(don't know what they are called) and go to town. I shall prevail!
