I knew I would want something else to occupy my free time, something that I could do here at the house. Hah, have I ever mentioned that I like being here, by myself? I have huh? Last week one day when I was leaving work I picked up my phone to call the girls and I had left it open on my FB page, there staring at me was a post that said, FREE~ children's desk. without a seconds hesitation I wrote the word interested, not really knowing if I was or not. I wasn't looking for a desk but I suppose I could be. Then I read the post. Yes, I know that makes no sense but I didn't have to take it I could write, Pass, thank you. Someone had already claimed it. I called the kids and said I was on my way.
As I drove the owner of said desk sent me a message saying if I was interested to PM her so I did. She said if previous lady didn't respond in 15 minutes it was mine. I walked in the house and said to Rosie, come on we have to go and pick up your new desk. She looked a little confused, couldn't blame her.
I put this very ugly thing in my car
|Ugly and not very "good" but the price was right for something I just needed to keep my busy.|
I ended up having to take it apart and put it back together as most of the screws were falling out and it was rickety. Now at least I don't worry about her sitting at it. It's also now held together with so much paint it's going nowhere!
I finished it last night and put it all together today. I love how it looks now. I hope Rosie does.
