"You shoulda seen it....carts and carts and carts of stuff. It just kept coming...and they put it in the back of this station wagon...."
Last night was what we hope to be the last Home Depot Run of the Great Kitchen Renovation, including a number of side items that we needed. We'd been waiting for yesterday to do the shopping, as we had an extra 10% off coupon and needed every bit of it.
Multiple carts were piled high with things like...
- 5 boxes of concrete mix
- A bag of quik-set
- Oddball tools
- Kitchen faucet
- 200 sq feet of ceramic tile and much, much more.
"Hmmmmm. Ok." Awkward moment, as she thinks "he's buying enough to build one....".
The best part came when we loaded it all into the back of my mom's Taurus wagon and drove away...s.l.o.w.l.y....
It reminded me of the time we loaded 5,000 bottles of water on a 32 ft RV and scraped our way out onto the playa. See all that water in the photo to the right? Nearly four pallets full. It overran our dinky trailer and filled the interior and rooftop of the RV.
We went 0-60 in twelve minutes. 60-0 in three miles. Inertia is truly a formidable foe in stop and go traffic.
Despite the ride, all the stuff is home. And it's in the house. Now just to get it all installed....
