Laugh? or Cry?



OK. So. I ordered this table back in early April. The furniture store said my order never reached the manufacturer, then it got lost, blah, blah, blah. This afternoon I FINALLY got a call that our table was delivered and ready to come live in our dining room. Whoop-ee. I was SO very excited. When I ordered the table I wanted the beefiest, heaviest table, for the right price. Well, the table was a bit on the gargantuan side. It fills up our entire dining room with a spare foot to squeeze by into the kitchen. After anticipating this gorgeous table, benches, and chairs for months I was sorely torn between crying and laughing. Once the movers left I laughed until my guts ached. Now I hope we can exchange/return our mammoth table or get a chain saw and make it into two tables. Can you imagine this table with the two large leaves installed? We'd have to knock out the wall.

It seems lately that the odds are against me. The table I ordered is large. I rubbed our new van against Justin's blue car last week, it has a slight blemish. Justin gave me some much deserved flack about that one, now the table. I think we are even now after his honeymoon blunder. With a newborn, Phillip (who seems to multiply into three little boys some days), and a whiny Amelia my brain cells are a bit cloudy. LOL. DON'T TRUST ME WITH TOO MUCH...

Okay, I have to ask.... Honeymoon blunder??? ;)

I can empathize with your feelings of being overwhelmed. Thinking of you, my friend.

I was going to ask the same thing - what honeymoon blunder? I'm pretty sure you told me at one point or another, but a nice reminder for my amnesia-proned mind would be good.
I LOVE the last line - "don't trust me with too much", I feel that way daily.
I do love your table - even though it's too big for your space. I just love it!!!
