Sucks to be single sometimes

I bought a new desk. Figured out a way to manage it financially and then it was on sale even! So I got it home and had to unload it by taking out a few pieces at a time. And then I spent five hours last night just doing the initial hardware installations. My hand still hurts from screwing in a bajillion screws. (yes, that's an official number)
So this morning I continue on in putting the desk together and now I'm to a point I can't finish it because it takes two people. Josh is at band camp so he can't help. David moved out. I have no other friends in Canyon that can help. Brian is 100 miles away and I don't want him to drive all the way down here just to help me put the desk together. I called an ex-boyfriend but am guessing he's at work today or out of town. Have an offer from a couple of guys that I chat with online, but not sure I feel comfortable in having them help me. So I'm stuck. I may see if I can get my friend Kirsten to come help after band today.
It's one of those days that sometimes I wish I had a man around... but I'll get over it. Sometimes they're more trouble than they're worth.

Yuck, I know the feeling. I tried to put together an entertainment center a couple of years ago, after lugging it upstairs, and getting it out of the box, right in the middle of everything I kneeled down on a screw and poked into my kneecap. One tetnus shot later, I decided to scrap it and bought a *delivered*, assembled, entertainment center.

I bought an entertainment center at Wal-Mart a few years ago. It had to be the biggest pain in the rear I have ever fooled with. It took me all afternoon to decipher the weird directions and get it together. I vowed never to buy another one unless it was already assembled.
