"Some" Assemble Required. My Rant! Add yours if you like.

(Cue dramatic music)
Now I consider myself a pretty able guy when it come to assembling things. So when it was time to start the assembly of my daughters "Little Tykes" Wood Kitchen, I thought it would take me 2hrs max. Little did I know, the science project, that I started at breakfast, wouldn't be finished until dinner.
That's right folks, 8hr's later I finished my season in hell, that had all of the drama tossed in for good measure:
My DD crying that her kitchen isn't fixed yet, and she even helped my on two occasions, by carrying over the screw bin, that had the 25 different screws separated neatly and then proceeded to dump them on the floor.
A DW who kept asking every 30 minutes about my progress.
A FIL who took the pieces I had separated by letter and sub-division and proceeded to lump them together into piles, he "Thought" they belonged to.
A step-dad who corrected my FIL on a constant basis, filled in for me, when I had to chase my dog around the neighborhood for twenty minutes, and finished the base of the playset, only to have me knock the friggin' thing down because he "Forgot" to screw the #$%! thing together, which caused me to break it down and start completely over.
And that my DD took the handle to the microwave and walked around with it, using it as her "Phone" for a good part of the day and lost it in the abyss of wrapping paper, assorted trash and play-pig-pen that used to be my living room.
So.........that was the last thing I assembled for the day. I put my tools down after looking for another hour for that part and gave up on it!
That's it! I'm done! Rant's Over! Now where's my next project!
OOOoooooo! Goodie!! A Glitter and Dream Dollhouse with over 700 pieces!!
Keep the beers cold!

We bought 3 computer desks, one for each kid. They have a nice shelf and cabinets. I have a cup of left over pieces my husband insists they dont need. He put them all together himself, as I would have made it worse! But it took him half the day to do, and then had the basketball hoop to put together as well! My most miserable project was the Polly Cruise Ship.
Several years ago we got all 5 of the grands a computer desk. After all but the oldest went to bed, 2 grandfathers and the oldest grandboy put all of them together. Good part - they had no left over items and those desks are going strong today.
