Slow start

So, I know I said that I was going to do Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred every day until June 15th. Well....I lied

I didn't do it on purpose tho! I promise!

I worked out on Monday. It was an okay workout. It kicked my but like I thought it would. Then on Tuesday I had a bunch of stuff to do. One of those things included going over to the crappy trailer that Sam decided in his "time of bad decisions" that he needed, and needed to fill with furniture and whatnot. *long sigh* It turned out okay tho. We'd been needing a new couch for some time. Ours had holes in it, one side of the springs were broken, and it's been sewed up more times than a plastic surgery addict. So, we had the couch and love seat delivered to our house. That still left the problem of where to put the OLD couch and love seat. Bright idea me says OH! Lets post it on LYS.. which is like a craigslist time website for our area. We have craigslist as well, and as I was writing up the little post for that, I was inundated with requests for pictures of my free "well loved" couch. Some people never responded back after I sent the pictures, which is fine. I don't care. I mean... what do you think a free couch is going to look like? Brand new? LOL

Anyways! Someone told me that they were going to come pick it up either Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, and I told them that was fine. I sent them a message yesterday morning to confirm that they were going to come pick it up... no response. I waited a while, did things that I needed to get done, whatever. Meanwhile, I had already told about 80 people that they were pending. I had one person keep pestering me about if they were still available. I told them that they were pending (again) and that if I hadn't heard back from them by 3:30 that afternoon that they could have them. I emailed the person that was supposed to have picked them up and let them know that if I hadn't heard from them by 3:30 I was going to give them to someone else. So at 3:30 on the dot, I get another message from the person asking if they had responded. I tell them they hadn't and that they could come get the couches.

They then say "Can I pick them up Friday?" O.O Are you KIDDING me?! I tell them that I need them out ASAP. They tell me "Okay, I can try and get them tomorrow after work" which is fine.. whatever. Later that evening, I get ANOTHER call about them. I told them that someone was supposed to pick them up tomorrow (Thursday) around 7, but if they didn't show up that I would call them. She said that she would be more than happy to come right over and pick them up.

One way or another, these couches will NOT be in my house this weekend!
