I finally have my second desk. It is large, tall, and great. Erick the Awesome took his post call day (he got 6 hours sleep while at the General last night - a miracle) and used it to collect the pieces needed to make the much anticipated desk. Ikea FINALLY restocked the trestles that I wanted to use. So he got those, then went to Home Depot and got me a 32''x80'' slab door. I came home to all this excellentness, and we assembled everything. I was super thrilled when I realized that the desk could be raised up to counter height. It's a perfect height for my bar stools that I made last year. And very sturdy. At last I can start to get my workspace organized!
p.s. Sookie brought a live centipede to bed with me last night. It was a nice surprise when I reached over to see what she was doing, felt the bug, realized it wasn't her toy, then turned the light on and saw it. Pleasant. I immediately flicked it across the room and prayed that Sookie would not find it again and bring it back. She didn't. Phew.
