Life as a Bachelorette

Blogger World, let me tell you a story about what happens when a single girl (me) tries to move furniture.

Today, my new living room furniture is being delivered. Yesterday, I purchased a couch and a lounge chase. While waiting on the delivery guys I had a brilliant idea-I would move one of the chairs from the living room into my bedroom. The chair being demoted to my bedroom is being replaced by a fabulous red chase.

After zero planning or preparation I began moving the old chair into my bedroom. Lots of grunting and pushing took place because unlike most people, I only own furniture that weights more than me. But after lots of muscle work, I finally got the old chair into the hallway. I pushed it to my bedroom when I realized something....the chair isn't going to fit through the doorway. Blogger World, I spent twenty minutes getting the stupid thing to my bedroom and now it’s not going to fit! AHHH! Since it won’t fit in my bedroom I tried another bedroom. No luck. Then I decided to go back to my bedroom and try some fancy twisting and shoving to get it through the doorway. No luck again! After an hour of messing with this chair I decide to call it a defeat, with the chair winning. However, now I'm faced with a rather large problem. I have random chair in my hallway, and it's stuck. I cannot get it back into the living room and I cannot get it into a bedroom. Sooo, what's a single girl to do? Well, isn't it obvious? I sit in the chair, that's stuck in the middle of the hallway, and write a blog post. Then, I'm jumping over the chair and getting my camera to document this brilliant idea......

Isn't single life great?

Throw the delivery guys an extra $5-$10 and I'm sure they'll solve your chair problem :)

This is ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!!! I feel your pain. I've been there done that on more than one occasion. Try moving furniture up and down stairs by yourself :).

That chair barely fits in the hallway, lol. I'm not surprised it wouldn't fit through any doorways ;)

(Did you try taking the doors off? That often works.)

that is a tight squeeze there. I'm with Cap'n John...see if the delivery guys can get it in there for you.

I know that's frustrating, but I can't help but laugh! I hate, hate, HATE moving furniture. I'm proud of you for trying it on your own. You are a much better woman than me. And hey, if you can't get the chair unstuck, I think it looks rather nice in your hallway.

I kinda like it there. It's like a little hurdle everytime you run down the hall.

I'm amused. Only a true blogger would grab the camera. I would've been right there with you.

Buying a Bedroom Furniture can be really tricky now a days with the choices being so vast.
