The head cold is slowly getting better. During the day it isn't too bad. At night it is a different story. As bedtime approaches I start to get some type of chest or throat issue and I cough an awful lot. I don't understand because I know that I don't have any kind of infection in there. I just want this cold to go away.
I was feeling good enough to get some shopping done and I'm happier than my bank account is. ;-) I hate using credit unless I've got the cash sitting in the bank so I usually find myself finding things I like when shopping but waiting to buy them. Sometimes I wait so long that the stores stop carrying what I wanted. Much frustration has ensued because of this. You would think there is some commercial conspiracy to get us to buy things quickly on credit just to keep the economy and banks going. But I digress.

I have to say that it is really frustrating shopping by yourself at a place like Ik.ea and getting no help. Only after I got the 2 bookcases loaded onto the cart did a staff member ask if I needed help. And on the way out of the store I had one of my little side tables slide off the cart onto the pavement. It was a lovely grandma much older than my mom who asked if I needed help. Very nice of her but what about the younger people? I did have a man ask if I needed help getting the last bookcase into the car. Thank you for offering to help! It wouldn't slide all the way in so I told him I'd take it apart to get the shelves out of the packaging. There was more than enough room for the uprights. He seemed skeptical but I did it and it fit. I love shopping at Ik.ea but I hate the loading of larger items because it is so difficult to do by myself. If I have to do that again I think I'll be getting them to deliver it from the store.
