the good, the bad and the home repair

I bought one of those under-the-desk drawers for a computer keyboard and successfully put it together using those annoying pictures-only instructions. Was really proud of myself, actually.

... and then I went to attach it to the desk and found out it was just a bit too wide. Turns out that the stated width on the website (yes, I measured) was for the space available for the keyboard rather than the external width. So I now have to return it, which means getting it all packaged up again.

I am still proud of my handyperson-ness. Just significantly more frustrated as well. *blows raspberry at company*

Also: Amazon Prime free shipping + returns? I apologize. That's one huge box for you to pay for. I was impressed you could get it to me so cheaply even before the return.

You haven't lived until you've put together kit furniture from IKEA. Minimalist instructions. No words, just petroglyphs.
