Who needs Fed Ex !

Today after a long day at work, I went to my knitting class at Seaport Yarn with Nan. It was the last one, and I will be going to the intermediate classes starting next week ( cables, instaria, fair isle and lace) . Nancy is a pro already... the bi**h... but anyway. I came home to find a Fed Ex slip on the floor in front of my mailbox. This is the package that was supposed to be delivered in 6-9 days.

I needed a new 20 inch television for my bedroom, nothing too fancy and affordable. I don't watch much t.v. in my bedroom but you know those days when you just do not want to get out of bed or can't fall asleep. I went to Circuit City with my brother yesterday and got this for a good deal and free delivery. Did I ever mention that I live in a walk up .... FIFTH FLOOR. Deliverymen are my heroes. But this one came the next day, I wasn't home and he left it with my first floor super.
So I could:
  • Leave it there and wait for my future husband to carry it upstairs for me ...NOT
  • Go down to my supers apt when I can't sleep and watch a little tv
  • Throw some rope out the window and haul it up the outside of the building or
  • Carry it up myself.

Thats what I did.. step by step and stair by stair but I did it. Its already in use ! There have been many a bookcase and computer bought up these stairs in ten years but I usually had help.

So needless to say .. no knitting tonight, no writing in my knitting journal. It has become an two advil kind of night.

Thank God for Advil !!!
