At least I had a relaxing & fun weekend I'm coming out out of.
It didnt start that way. Believe me - it TOTALLY didnt start that way.
Friday, I finally - after 2 weeks - got my treadmill delivered.
WARNING - you're going to be amazed at this story.....
Someone calls & says they're bringing it over. We paid $150 for this delivery & set up. OK. I expect professionalism, right. A guy shows up at our door in sweat pants, in a broken down van that has no windows, ALL BY HIMSELF. I have no idea what he would have done if Ricky wasn't home to help him get it out of this van. Ricky had a handtruck that he used to help get it out of the van & wheel it in. Honestly, if this guy was by himself, what was he going to do? It weighed HUNDREDSSSS of pounds- & this guy had to be like 160 lbs wet. Was he just going to let it fall out of his van? & how was he going to get it up/down steps?
I was literally amazed.
& then poor Ricky is pulling & tugging this thing & its so heavy, Ricky literally tripped & the thing kinda fell down on him. Plus, they ran into our ceiling fan & tore it apart.
THENNNN - the guy starts pulling out the instruction manual that it comes with. What? You dont know how to put it together? Nope - the guy said, I've never done this kind before & literally walked through the instruction manual to put it together page by page. Ricky had to even tell him where things were & how to put it together.
|Basically me all Friday night|
Let me tell you, I was infuriated. I still am the more I think about it. & honestly, I dont know what to do. I wanted to call & tell the company all about it, but Ricky reminded me that this guy, now knows where we live. So if he gets in trouble, much less fired, he can come right back to our house & do some damage. These are scary times.
& truthfully, the guy was super nice & did the best he can - I blame the company. They sent him totally unprepared. Who hires a guy for this job knowing he cant do this job? That's what I want to call on - but we all know big companies blame the little guys more than look in a mirror themselves... so I havent made the call yet.
But I do want it on record as well because what if the treadmill doesnt last, or the guy did something wrong? Like, I know the pictures of it has a stabilizing piece underneath in the center of the treadmill - mine? There's nothing there. The guy also had spare parts ... which FREAKS ME OUT...
|Its up & running... for now....|
Oh mercy - what would you all do?
Needless to say, I went to bed on Friday with my blood pressure ready to blow out....
Saturday, I woke up FREEZING. Where did Spring go? Our heater was cranked on all day.
I had plans on my calendar but the rainy cold weather canceled everything &I was so happy to stay home in comfy sweats & just relax. Let me tell you, days like this makes me evaluate my life & makes me want to give up a lot of things I'm doing. I'm seriously pondering some decisions.
I spent most of my morning working on some canvas work & hand lettering...
& was pretty excited how it was all turning out.
Until I set it outside to dry in our enclosed room. Bad mistake. BIG mistake on my part.
Because I have a curious child - as a fur child... & he took his nose & investigated the wet paint.
So after a few hours of work, I end up with a messed up piece of junk. Sigh....
I couldnt help but laugh. Ricky even said, "I cant believe you're laughing after all the work you put in that"... I told him, "what else can i do?"... I think my blood pressure blew from the night before to care about this.
We just watched some TV, watched the Derby - which I was terrified of the horses running on the wet track, I actually tried out my treadmill - which it seemed to work just fine (thank God)...
& I ended up cooking dinner. On a Saturday. That just feels strange to me.
|Yes, I used a Kid's Kitchen cookbook! It'll be on my book review post tomorrow!|
But Ricky loved the Tex-Mex bake from this cookbook & with the relaxing day, I didnt mind one bit making some yummies.
After dinner, I watched Girl on a Train #foreverlate & did some knitting & then watched some more of 13 Reasons Why.
Sunday had me back at church with my awesome girls... I had a big group this Sunday. I never tire of talking to these girls...
& left these girls to meet up with my other set of girls.
Our Bible Study group just finished up our last study so we had to decide what to do for our next one so we just planned on a fun girls day out. We went for some lunch & then some of us went to go see Beauty & the Beast.
Yep..... I got to see it again.
& let me tell you - I had to sit next to this girl during the movie.
She's turned into as big of a fan as I am. Her expressions during the movie just made my whole day. I said at one point, my heart swelled up 5 times the size just watching it with her & her love of the movie too.
& of course, I had to represent my outfit for the movie....
I headed home & picked up some dinner for the hubs.
I then was excited to jump on the couch & watch the special about Princess Diana. I never get tired of hearing stories about her. She just memorizes me. Even still. It's just the saddest story & situaiton, isnt it. A fairy tale totally gone wrong.
& then, pushing it as long as I could, at 11:30pm time to settle into the reality that we're back to a new week. The circle of life... it moves us all... to work.
So be it...
How was your weekend?
Watch the Derby?
Tell me what I should do about the treadmill fiasco.
