I now understand why when people say that if a newly married couple can survive putting together Ikea Furniture, they will last a lifetime. Let me be the first to tell you, it’s not a joke.
I have a side business as a Professional House Sitter https://www.facebook.com/housecrittersitter/ and one of my clients that I recently house sat for was moving to Texas. So I asked about the bed I had stayed in and was interested in purchasing it. She said sure. So on Sunday Dec 17, 2018, I went and picked it up. I thought it was only the mattress I was getting. Oh no, it was the WHOLE bed! Head board, foot board and side rails, the whole nine yards. So I thought okay, this shouldn’t be to hard to put together right? Well it took my dad and I about a half hour to put together. Some pieces were missing, support bars were falling off, but at the end, we managed to get it all together. When we were almost done, I heard my Dad whisper, Just keep breathing Ken, just keep breathing. It took literally everything I had to keep from laughing, cause I knew if I did, he would kill me for sure.
So thankful that he helped me put it together. I knew there was no way I could have done it on my own. I’m loving my new bed and I’m sure this isn’t the last time I’ll laugh about it.
Thank you to my Dad, your the best. Love you xoxo
