On Thursday, I drove over the mountains and into Denver. First, I did some shopping at a quilt shop in Grand Junction (bought a couple of new books on sale-like I need more quilt books!), as well as a yarn shop and an antique shop. I wasn't in any hurry as it is only a 4-5 hour drive over the pass and both my brother and sister-in-law had to work- wasn't much point in getting there too early. Timed it just right, my brother got home 10 minutes before I got there! We had a nice dinner out with friends of theirs in from Taos, a very enjoyable evening.
I got up early on Friday and hit the highway home. 600 miles from Denver to Independence-took a long time. Mostly because after two weeks of driving the southwest every joint in my body hurt! So, I had to stop every little bit, if I made it 100 miles I was very lucky! Pulled into my driveway a little before 8pm, unloaded only what I HAD to, took a shower and crashed! It's amazing how great a shower in your own bath-the one with great hot water and great water pressure-can feel.
Slept until 9 Saturday and felt dull-witted all day! Rob unloaded all the IKEA stuff and I finished up with the rest of the truck, then opened boxes until I found the instructions. Decided real quick that I wasn't up to assembly and left it lie.
Slept until 8:30 this morning but am feeling up to thinking today! So I plan to assemble, later. First, there's a soccer game and I need to go visit my Dad. Also going to look at new cell phone plans as my phone has all but died. And I need to call Amazon as my Kindle met with demise, again. I'll be busy for a couple of days then I'll post the entire Kitchen redo for the last time, I promise.
