Momma Said There'd be Days Like This.....

Not gonna lie, I'm in a funky mood today. I'm exhausted, my body aches everywhere but in between my toes, my house is a DISASTER, I have no TV in my living room, not an ounce of food in my house and I'm not even sure how to remedy it.

Although my weekend was COMPLETELY worth the lack of sleep, it is starting to catch up to me, and my evenings have done little to help remedy that lack of sleep. We got a new TV approximately a month ago but we had to get a new TV table for it. That was ordered 3 weeks ago and was finally delivered, and not a moment too soon. We currently have a HUGE armoire in our living room that our dinosaur-of-a-tv currently sits in. And let me tell's SO.FREAKING.HEAVY. It's honestly heavier than my couch, my dresser, the washing machine, my stinkin car....ok, maybe not quite as heavy as the car, but close. Anyways, we moved the huge armoire and heavy TV into our bedroom to make room for the new TV and table. I almost can't even move today. My hair hurts. But honestly, I probably wouldn't even be mentioning this had we been able to put the new TV table together, finally get the new TV out of the box, and actually have a TV in our living room right now. But NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO....that would be too easy now wouldn't it??

We started this project at 6:30pm when we got home from work. I had a good sweat going by 7:30 when we finally finished moving the furniture into our room and I only had one herniated disc. By 8:00 pm we had the box unpacked and all of the pieces of our fine furniture spread throughout the living room. We started putting the puzzle together and once we put the framework together there was ONE piece that just wasn't in correct alignment. Well, let's just take it apart and put it back together so that it lines up correctly, right? WRONG. The 4 pieces absolutely would not come apart. And when I say would not, I mean WOULD NOT come apart. I was putting all of my weight into it, jumping up and down, turning it upside down and every which way I could possibly flip it and this thing would not budge. Finally, at 9:00pm when I was getting completely grumpy from lack of food and the pain in my lower back was more than I could bare we called a truce from the stupid TV table and made a Sonic run. I guess that Wacky pack grilled cheese and cherry limeade was just what I needed to get my strength back and get the creative juices flowing. We got home, ate our dinner while sitting on our bed watching the last 15 minutes of the Biggest Loser, and made a decision to give that TV table one last piece of our minds.

With all the strength we could muster we basically ripped that thing apart. Seriously, I prayed a prayer of praise after that thing was back in all of it's million little pieces on my living room floor because at least it wasn't still STUCK TOGETHER in janky fashion. At that point we called it a night because we couldn't bare to get ticked off again if we put it back together and it didn't line up. Not to mention I couldn't actually stand upright at that point.

So I currently sit here, unable to move many appendages, and am painfully aware of the task awaiting me when I get home. Momma said there'd be days like this.......
