Best. Alex & two of our coworkers & I went to IKEA and it actually went well! Last time I remember being frustrated, tired, hangry, and going insane from the screaming kids. Something about IKEA, man. It just makes everyone want to scream (the adults just contain it better). Alex & I just watched the 30 Rock episode where they go to IKEA and it got to me. We were looking at stuff online the night before we went there & we were already bickering. 😞 But overall, it went well. There was some debate, of course, because things always look different in the store/I’m hesitant to buy things/I’m not good at imagining things in our space and try to bail on the decision making. I’m really happy with what we ended up with, though—this bench, some bins for Eleanor’s food & litter, and some frames (that were so cheap).
Worst. After IKEA we stopped at Steak & Shake as we always do. I was reminded of the dismal state of vegetarian/pescatarian options at restaurants. My options were a salad or grilled cheese. I get it, you’re a burger place. But the least you could do is add a veggie burger option. (That reminds me: Bar 145’s veggie burger is awesome if you ever find yourself there)
