We made our second trip to Ikea this week last night. The first trip was a scouting trip, and this one was a hunting trip. We had a pretty good idea what we wanted, it was just a matter of going to get it.
All told, we got a coffee table, tv stand, computer desk, 2 arm chairs, a sofa, and 2 loft beds. It was a trip. Once we got to the self-service area we acquired a couple big carts. We quickly realized that that wasn’t going to be enough. By the end we had 3 carts totally stuffed and crawling to the cashier! Let’s just say they were happy to see la familia de McLane.
We brought home the 2 arm chairs with us, but the rest is getting delivered on Wednesday.
The point here isn’t what we bought or that we went as a family. The point is that we will soon have some furniture! It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve been able to sit on normal things like a sofa, chairs, or even a bed that wasn’t on the floor. I know we are fortunate and that there are many people in the world who will never have such luxuries in their lifetime, but we are greatly looking forward to getting off of the floor.
