Never Under Estimate Me! - Updated

I am staying up late tonight to get stuff done! One of things I did today was buy a desk.

The guy is loading it in my truck and says, "Make sure you have help carrying this in."

I laughed and said I would be doing it on my own. He said that it wasn't that cheap stuff, it was heavy. There was no way I could do it on my own.

Hmmm...that sounds like a challenge.

I have lived on my own, by myself for the past 6 years. I have moved on my own, driven cross country on my own, loaded and unloaded Uhauls on my own. I will ALWAYS find a way!

So I get home and back my truck into it's spot. I drag the huge box from the back and realize it is a little heavier than I thought. But I had no choice, I had to get it in the house! Wouldn't do me a lot of good sitting in the truck!

So, I dragged it about 10 feet. The bottom of the box is now tore up....but no biggy. Then I did the "lean on one corner walk" until I got down the 3 stairs to my front door.

Never tell me I can't do something!

I have the instructions out, getting ready to put the thing together, and it says:

To make the assemble easier and more pleasant, ask a friend to help you! 2 people required !
Haha! I will have a picture of this thing posted by morning!


It is done! And with only ONE person!

Tammi- There's 3 extra pieces. I'll bring them for the bonfire next time I'm up there. Don't tell Teresa ;-)

I use a blanket to drag heavy stuff like that. When I bought my other dining room table it was my cousin and I moving it. Upstairs. Solid wood - sets 10. It took us 3 hours, but we got it up there and without a scratch.

As to the assembly - hell yeah we want pictures!!! :-)

I'm like you. Don't tell me I can't do something. It'll only piss me off and make me more determined.

Looks great! Just remember... when you burn it on the bonfire, don't breathe the fumes.
