So, fun fact for the day. In at least some parts of Massachusetts it is legal to drive in the breakdown lane during rush hour. (6-10 and 5-7?)
Today was quite productive, got our own internet hooked up, though the cable still isn't right, we'll have to call tomorrow about that. Today we decided to go shopping and to make our first trip to Ikea. As an Ikea virgin, it was kind of overwhelming. We had to drive 45 minutes to even get to the place, but for someone from Ohio, that's common practice for a lot of things. Needless to say this place was enormous.
After our stop there we went on to Target just to look at a few things and compare some prices. Of course what do we find when we get there? A damn nice futon that is pretty inexpensive and will work great for our couch for the time being. On top of that it was on sale for another two days and it was the only one they had left. So we picked that up as well, more assembly for me. However it did put together easy and now we have somewhere to sit and its pretty comfy too.
Eventually we found the store and got what we wanted and started on the hour drive home. As it turns out each leg of our journey, while not being too far from the last, took us a bit further in the wrong direction. We get home and make food while I'm starting the assembly on things. By now I've moved on to getting the pot rack together, only to find out we hadn't measured anything and it is about a half an inch too long to fit above our oven. It is luckily an easy fix since it just hits some molding and I've got a couple scrap pieces of wood and they left us extra paint for touch ups. Tomorrow I'll just make a buffer that bumps the rest of the rack out from the wall a bit and it will fit fine. So that was the mess today was, and now it is time to relax some and prepare to take a trip up to Boston tomorrow. I leave you with this picture of the ceiling fans inside Ikea.
