A Little Lonely

I'm feeling a little lonely tonight, which is very unusual for me. Greg was back briefly, but he went to check on his mom - she's got a respitory infection.

He's meeting up with Mark and some of Mark's friends from KC who have been on a food trip through the area, visiting cool places down there. Mark invited us to go and it did sound fun, but I didn't want to impose on Greg's mom when she wasn't feeling well. So, Greg and Mia are there with Mark and his friends and I know lots of fun is being had and I'm missing out on it. I just hate to miss out on fun.

But, I'm looking forward to a long lunch with Trish tomorrow so that will be fun. Also, the guy is coming to paint on my house tomorrow. It's going to be in the 60s so I want to take advantage of it.

Well, I think I'm going to head upstairs. I'm working on some shelves for the library and need to wrestle another one into place.

I finally called Sauder to get further instruction on how to put them together because "push" was not sufficient. They asked for the model number and when I gave it to them the woman said, "OH! Those..." I knew that wasn't good news. She suggested standing up and putting my entire weight on them to get the pegs to sink into the shelves. That sort of works. That, combined with hammering and gorilla glue seems to be doing a passable job.

I so want to have the library functional. I still have painting to do but I have to get some of the boxes of books out of the way before I can even finish painting. I think this is the next piece of the puzzle to get done in my house.
