Behold! My Dining Table!

November 29, 2012

So apparently I need to post these blog posts on my personal Facebook profile instead of AHSOM’s FB page to get you people to read? I had the highest amount of views yesterday that I’ve had in a long time. (The most since this post, my most popular post ever.)

What the eff, you guys! Like AHSOM’s FB page damn it!

Pretty please? 😀

Anyway, first things first. Yesterday’s run.

It was….meh. I did 4 miles. Technically yesterday called for 5 according to my plan. But since I had to jump ahead to week 4 when really I feel like I’m at week 1 (which would have called for 3), I figured 4 miles was a good compromise.

Oh who the hell am I kidding? I cut my run short because my legs were sore from Shoddy Lifting Tuesday.

2 sets of 8 squats made me so sore that every step felt like burning knives cutting into my legs.

There. I said it.

Go ahead and judge — I deserve it.

And now, let’s move on to what you’ve all really come here for. A picture of my Glorious Dining Table.

Actually, most of you have already seen it on my personal FB page, but I’m going to show it to you again. Without further delay:

(Confession: I was going to write “without further ado”, but I didn’t know if I was supposed to spell it “ado” or “adieu”, and instead of trying to figure it out, I decided to just use a different word.)

Anyway, behold:

Another angle:

I really love the look of it. I think it pulls the room together perfectly.

However, I gotta say– the table is a little scratched up, I suspect from the shipping process.

I was fully prepared for some damage, since I read the reviews on overstock.com. And I figured for the price of the table, we were going to get what we paid for.

There are lots of little scratches on it, and a few larger chips. (I colored them in with a sharpie.) The worst damage is the long crack that runs down one side of the table.

All of the damage isn’t really noticeable from afar, and not even that bad up close. Not bad enough for me to go through the hassle of returning it.

And since it’s just me and Joe, it’s not like it’s going to get a ton of use and abuse. So, it’s fine to keep. I will, however, be calling o.co to see about some sort of discount for the damage.

So, that’s my dining story. All in all, I’m happy with it, and so happy to finally have a place to sit if we have more than two people eating. YAY!

Now, if I can just get a certain someone to move this bookcase…

Ahem…

Happy Thursday 🙂
