It's like this, and like that....

I started this blog in an effort to track my experiences with pregnancy and beyond. Writing is therapeutic. Kind of like talking to myself without the people in WalMart thinking I'm crazy. If you find some entertainment in this along the way, then even better!

This is one woman's journey through unfathomable hunger, vivid sex dreams and a bulging belly...from conception to birth in 9 months or less...

I'd really love to blog tonight...

Monday, February 22, 2010
But I will be ass deep in cardboard and vaguely descriptive pictorial Swedish instructions. Also know as assembling IKEA furniture.

As mentioned on Twitter, I expect bloodshed, tears and epic bruising, with a side of curse words, confused facial expressions and screams of frustration.

Hopefully this time, we will only be missing non crucial parts. As opposed to that one time, when we put the dresser together, only to find out our box lacked the actual bottoms to the drawers. In case you are wondering, bottomless drawers are not as fantastic as they sound.

Unless I'm in jail for stabbing someone with a phillips head, I shall return tomorrow. Down a finger  nail or two, and somewhat defeated by particle board furniture. However, I will at least be able to hide some of my nursery mess behind overpriced red cupboard doors, and store all the wine I can't drink on our new kitchen cart for the non-kitchen.

Wish me luck. Or at least sanity.

Ahhh ... I totally empathize with this post. I'm nodding and laughing and grimacing all at the same time. Good luck on the IKEA endeavor. I wish you success ... and sleep tonight.

It will go fine! Hubs, his two sisters & his father built ikea furniture, two cribs, a pottery barn desk, a bookshelf built from scratch and unpacked A TON. No murder. :)

I LOVE those preggers pics of you, you look absolutely stunning, happy & glowing. I never got that "pregnancy *glow*" & always thought it was an urban myth. But you proved me wrong - you look amazing!
I'm also swinging by as a new follower thanks to Meme Monday :D pleased to meet you!

We are SO addicted to IKEA! All my son's furniture is from there! He has the MALM series.
