And to think it only took 5 months…

.

In July we ordered a pool table. We were told it would take approximately 8 weeks to arrive.

They lied.

As the months passed, I began wondering if we would see it this calendar year… but on Monday they called and said they could deliver Thursday.

At this point my husband broke into an impromptu happy dance and made plans to gift our old (ugly ass, low quality… but hey, it was free) table to the friend who’d been hinting he wanted it.

.

.

This was the gifted table that served as inspiration for the storage barn to man cave transformation.

.

.

And while I do love the resulting Barn Mahal, I can’t say I’m sorry to see it’s wobbly, chipped and worn out butt go.

.

.

Did I mention it was heavy?

.

.

Really, really heavy. Not to mention awkward to maneuver.

So while the men were struggling to move it across the room, yours truly had an idea.

.

.

A plant pot roller.

.

.

Pure genius if I do say so myself.

.

.

It rolled across the floor, out the door, across the porch..

.

.

And right into the truck…

.

.

On its way to the sweet little old man who comes over to play with my husband most Sunday afternoons. He’s a widower… and is putting the table in his living room.

Which, if he wasn’t a widower, would probably result in him living alone from the divorce anyway.

.

.

And yes, those are the pillows off our guest room bed being used for cushioning. The husband took them without telling me… bringing him one step closer to divorce.

  1. What would the men folk in your life do without you? You are a genius, but yet most women are. I say most because I’ve come across a couple of women who lack the instinct and basic common sense we have. Glad to know that thing is gone. Can’t wait to see the new one!

  2. After the plant roller I found myself wanting to say something I normally only say to my wife.
    Remain calm, this won’t hurt a bit.
    “You think you’re smarter than me just because you can do all that fancy readin’ and stuff”.
