Went to IKEA today with Ryan and Zack -- boy was Zack a pistol. Normally he's a good traveler and a fairly decent shopper. As long as I split up time with things for HIM to do and things for ME to do, we're good, and IKEA is very kid-friendly. But for some reason (maybe because Daddy has been gone so long on business) he's just not right. Was NOT the easiest shopping trip and I HAD to buy a new kitchen table (AKA, my work space) and I was so rushed that I ended up with chairs that I don't much care for. The table I love, the chairs, well, not as much, but I was more interested in getting something and getting the heck out of there.
Thank goodness Ryan went with me because I never could have done it alone -- the heavy lifting I had totally not thought about, for one! But now I have a great table that is a bit wider and as soon as I get chair cushions, I'll have a more comfortable work environment!
Nothing new made today -- finished 25 breast cancer awareness pendants for a friend's conference and got prepared for a furnace glass bracelet-making party I'm doing on Friday. Hopefully, once Rick is back on Thursday, I can make some of the things that have been floating around in my mind.
