Day 19: 1996
Sleepy, which is how I remember feeling a lot of my junior year of high school. I was working part-time, juggling AP classes and waking up at 6 in the morning.
Wayne and I went to IKEA!!!! It was so great.
There were some problems. First we attended a show that one of Wayne's friends was playing at. It happened to be a pre-game show for last night's Orlando Magic game. We thought we'd be fine getting out of there 'cause we weren't staying for the game. Little did we know that at the same time we wanted to leave, all the old people from the matinee show at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center wanted to leave. We waited in the parking lot for 35 minutes (!!!!) without moving an inch.
It was 5:50pm and IKEA closed at 7pm. There was talk of skipping it and going another time, but I assured Wayne we could do it. If we could only get out of the stupid parking garage.
We did. I made it from downtown to the IKEA parking lot in under 10 minutes. We were lucky, not a lot of people were trying to get in knowing the store would be closing soon.
We picked up some sheets for us and sheets for Alison's new bed at the new house. Some rugs for the new house to use until the new floors go in next month. And did some dreaming about how we're going to redo the bathroom and kitchen.
