The Greenhouse, Part 1
This post was supposed to have been about joy. About success. Of triumph and victory. Of excitement. Plans. Dreams. Because I took the one nice, sunny day we've had in two weeks to put together the greenhouse.
But, it didn't quite work out like that.
First of all, I know before I start that the instructions are going to be horrible. I've put stuff together before. And it is ALWAYS frustrating. But, eventually, somehow, things do get put together and - rejoice! - you have the finished product.
Not this time.
Not only were the instructions horrible as expected, the entire kit almost impossible to put together (again, almost expected these days), but I was missing a piece!!!!! Argh!
No telling when I'll finish putting the thing together. :( But I'll let you know when I do!
Don't you miss the old days when things were well made, well thought out, and had clear instructions?
Oh, and had all the pieces, too????
