Yes, my A-1 arrived on Friday as scheduled!!!! Yippee!! Can you all just see my leaping, jumping for joy! I still cannot believe it! It's not put together yet, but it's home safe. Jamie Wallen is coming the beginning of January to spend a couple of days with me setting up and training. I can't wait!!
Last week had been a long and crazy week, including Friday. Work has been super busy because we are on the tail end of the Christmas shopping season. Elaina was home sick Friday. Poor thing missed her class Christmas party. It was her last one ever because next year it's off to middle school. I'll share more about that later this week. Then all the craziness with the A-1's delivery. I was so relieved to finally get the call that the delivery truck was going to be arriving at any minute. It was like a dream when I saw the truck in front of my house! Then I snapped back to reality when the poor truck driver got stuck on some patchy ice in the road while trying to back down my driveway!
As I said, the table is one long, solid piece, so getting it in my new studio, which is in our finished basement was quite a challenge. Thank goodness a friend of ours came over to help. I'm pretty sure Scott and I couldn't have done it by ourselves. The plan from the beginning was to go through a large basement window, but for some reason my Santa thought he could make it down the stairs with it. I insisted the window was the way to go. Guess who found out the hard way that I was right?? So eventually it came through the window. It wasn't easy mini nightmarish, but they did it!
It's now laying on the floor of my family room. All the parts seem to be here. Don't worry, I will take LOTS of pics when it is all set up! Scott was so exhausted Friday night! Thanks Santa!
I can't wait until it's all set up. I know it will be before I know it. Then all the practicing will begin!!
