Self assemble- not again!



Self Assemble, oh how I hate those 2 words. Self assemble + tiredness + stupid manuals= FRUSTRATION.
There is a reason I was never an engineer or a MAN for that fact. I hate putting things together, unless its food for making dinner. I hate reading directions (even recipes, thats why I end up creating my own) and even more I hate little screws and small pieces that are used to assemble anything and everything from IKEA, Target, etc. We have one more piece of furniture to put together and my poor husband has hurt back 2x assembling things and because he has 2 races these next 2 weekends, I don't want him to do anything but train, eat, and sleep. Guess I'll be yelling at the directions tonight and making a mess of all the plastic wrap and Styrofoam. In the meantime, here are a few pics of the trails by our place in Steiner. Love it!
Look, Sadie even blends in with the trees. :)





Cheers,
LC

p.s.
Next up I'll post a recipe for a really good Greek Pizza!
Oh and HAPPY EARTH DAY!

Moving house and setting up the new home is very stressful, so be sure to take your time. In our home, my wife usually decides what is needed and buys it, I will transport it if required, and our boys will usually assemble it, while I provide the financing. Last week we bought a bed frame (for a guest room) that was on display and cheaper because it was a little scratched. At least I did not need to screw all the pieces together, which saved a lot of time. In Taiwan it also makes a lot of sense to have larger cupboards, etc. actually built to fit by a carpenter. My wife just has to decide what we want and I just have to pay the bill at the end, and the carpenter takes care of everything else.

Hi !.
might , perhaps very interested to know how one can collect a huge starting capital .
There is no need to invest much at first. You may start to receive yields with as small sum of money as 20-100 dollars.

AimTrust is what you thought of all the time
The company represents an offshore structure with advanced asset management technologies in production and delivery of pipes for oil and gas.

It is based in Panama with structures around the world.
Do you want to become an affluent person?
That`s your choice That`s what you desire!

I feel good, I started to get real money with the help of this company,
and I invite you to do the same. If it gets down to select a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that`s AimTrust!.
I earn US$2,000 per day, and what I started with was a funny sum of 500 bucks!
It`s easy to get involved , just click this link http://obakepew.freewaywebhost.com/jycaqy.html
and go! Let`s take our chance together to become rich

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
