Ikea (again)

On our spectacular road trip to IKEA Schaumberg we brought home a ridiculous amount of goodies. Okay, well it wasn't that much, but it sure seemed like a lot at the time. (Two carts and a flat cart FULL.) And if you have even been glancing at my past posts you will notice that I am not that great at follow-up posts. The reason for that is because I don't finish anything. Ever. I still haven't finished the second coat of paint in the Dining Room.  I also haven't hooked up the wireless for the computer, so it is still in said unfinished Dining Room. Mr. brought up his olive green camp chair and that's where we sit to use to computer. Classy, right?
Well, I finally started on my kitchen curtains folks. That's right, I am accomplishing something! And about time too, I think Mister is about ready to kick me to the curb if I don't finish some projects, lol. And now my mother and I are taking another weekend to run back to Chicago. Yup. I bought two 31" Billy bookcase systems for the our bedroom. We were supposed to get: 2 bookcases, 4 doors, 4 small doors, and 2 height extensions. We bought: 2 bookcases, 2 doors, 2 small doors, and 2 15.75" height extensions. Hmmm... So now we have to go back and swap out the height extensions and buy more doors! Argh. Which is fine, cause I really want this rug for the bedroom. Okay, well I can't find it now. But it's black and white and hopefully they will have it in an 8 x 10 at least.

I just noticed that my links are the same color as my text. Hm. I don't have time to fix it now, though. Off to work, then straight to Chicago after. And I am leaving my computer with Mr. so he can get his Craigslist fix while I'm gone. The things I do for him... 
But I'll try to remember to take lots of pictures for the few of you still reading these posts...

Do you guys have any special plans for this weekend or are you just planning on doing nothing? (Totally jealous of you who get to do nothing)

I totally know what you mean about not finishing. I am very much guilty of the same crime. I do have to say, your post about sewing made me laugh at first. I always forget something when I whip out my sewing machine. I'm getting better. God bless the internet and YouTube. You really can find anything there, I often search sewing techniques and hair style how tos.

Take care,
