I’m 37 going on 7. At least today, that’s my plan. I am not having good brain times right now. Still. I know, it continues on for a very long time. I’m ashamed that I’m just not getting better right now. When I think about it, I realize that this is a trend for this time of the year. June is a Hard Depression month then July is a Manic or Mixed month. My birthday was back in June. So I bought myself a belated present.
Took Ikea a while to get it to me, but it finally arrived! Guys, I absolutely love Ikea. I’m sad that there isn’t one anywhere closer to me than Atlanta. I used to go there a lot when I lived in Atlanta. Honestly, if I ever could afford it. I’ll be getting THIS Clayton home. I would absolutely fill it completely with Ikea furniture.
Since it’s still a long ways away from being affordable to get our own place, I’ll just enjoy my LEGO set. It’s funny that LEGO and IKEA did a collaboration. Build your own furniture. Literally. They had some larger boxes, but I picked the small 3-piece set. It was overpriced on Facebook so I ended up getting it straight from Ikea. I love actual LEGO pieces, the knock off stuff really annoys me. There’s just not the same quality. These boxes stack very nicely, which works well for building. They have tops that don’t snap on, but sit loosely on top. The space inside is great for storing your blocks. As well as pretending they’re home space.
I built a few of the things that were shown on the box. The LEGO set was a separate purchase, but totally worth it. They have different items that you can build. You even get 2 little people that can be guys or girls. This has me wishing I could make my own LEGO person. Sadly, the closest store is in Atlanta. I’ll have to look next time I go to the local shop, McKay’s.
It was really therapeutic playing with the LEGO set though. You focus on putting pieces together and don’t really think about your worries. And after you’re done, you just pack it all back up into the boxes. I can’t recommend this enough. It wasn’t too expensive either. Just $30 for the boxes and the LEGO set.
I treated myself to a Dr. Pepper Zero and some Barnum Animal Crackers this evening as well. Haha, normally it would have been a juice cup if I was being a true child, but the sugar just is too much. I didn’t want to drive up my blood sugars too much. I have Uechi Ryu class early in the morning and then … I don’t know. We’ll see how the day goes tomorrow. Maybe I’ll have something interesting to share.
Thanks as always for stopping by! I apologize things haven’t been that exciting lately.
