<p>You may recall that I'm redoing my office so that it's a guest room.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I FINALLY made a paint color decision.....AWAY from the neutral and smack dab in the face of color.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Behr Periwinkle Bud.  The phone camera greys out the color of the walls, plus the light in the room is really yellow, so that does it too.  Daytime pics are better.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I rented a truck from Home Depot today and drove to ATL to Ikea to get the bed.  It came in boxes that were just enough too wide that I couldn't take my own car.  But the boxes were super small compared to the bed of the truck.</p>

<p>It was my first time driving a truck that beeps when it's in reverse.  Holy moly!!  It's empowering to be driving something that big.  Although, it does feel every bump in the road, that's for sure.</p>

<p>I combined my visit to Ikea with a visit to the awesome sports chiro dude that Tithers introduced me to.  I needed a followup from some tweaks/twinges that I got from backing into a tree after helping Tithers with the Skirt Chaser race.  He also helped me with some other issues that I've been having with Lisa.  Turn out, I'm not just a big baby, I had something actually wrong with me that prevented me from doing those one-legged squats!  Yay!  Now that I can do the motion, I have to train the muscles to do the work, though. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, when I took the truck back (after filling the tank back to full with gas)....the guy checking the truck and putting the club back on the steering wheel looked at me and said.... "yeah, about the paying part......"  I'm thinking, "uh oh...."  He goes on to say that the guy last night who checked it out to me, did it wrong.  He put it in the training database rather than the live one, so they had no record of me taking the truck.  He said thanks for filling it up....but even if I hadn't they wouldn't have been able to charge me for that either. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>So, I got my 24 hr truck rental for the price of half a tank of gas. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Talk about a good day in Atlanta!!</p>

<p>I'm jealous.  Our home depot won't rent out trucks unless you show them a receipt for what you bought that is big enough to require a truck.  :(</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm also jealous because your guest bedroom looks really gorgeous, and mine is not. You probably need a quilt for that bed though, huh?</p>

<p>Well, if they won't rent a truck just because you didn't buy something big enough, then they're preventing themselves from earning money, and that's just dumb.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So far, the room has a bed, and two empty shelves.  The shelves are only there because there's nowhere else to put them.  They're going to be going away at some point, too.  But, they'll be replaced with something.....don't know what yet, though.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Even when I get the mattresses, too.....</p>
<p>I still don't have sheets or pillows, either. </p>
<p>I suppose those will have to get purchased at some point.  But, they can wait until another pay period comes around.</p>
