New Kitchen Table and Chairs . . . and Randy Travis!

Earlier, I blogged about the table and chairs we purchased at Ashley Furniture. Well, it arrived yesterday, and we went to pick it up! Unfortunately, when you don't have it delivered they don't put it together, so what we picked up was a bunch of boxes! So far, we (I say "we", but really I mean "Bill"!!) put together the table and two of the chairs. It's really quite a pain in the butt to put the chairs together. The biggest pain is getting the legs level so they don't rock.

Anyway, to give you an idea of how much of a difference it makes having the new table, here are some "before" and "after" pics:

Before: (Our washer and dryer are behind the double doors, so getting our laundry out was really difficult)

And after -- we have SO much more room to maneuver!

Oh, and I found out that Randy Travis is coming to Gold Country Casino in Oroville on Aug. 28th! I told Bill that is what I wanted for my birthday, so we bought two tickets! We also took the day after that off work (the 28th is a Tuesday) and we are going to be staying at the casino's hotel overnight! Should be a fun time. I didn't hear about the concert until the tickets had been on sale for a couple of days, so none of the front row seats were available. Darn. But we did get tickets in the center section, row 16, so it won't be TOO bad, as long as he has a pretty high stage. I just hope the people don't stand up during the concert; I HATE that. Then in order to see, you have to stand up, too. I really like Randy Travis's voice, and songs, too. He's a bit too Okie country for me, but it he such a nice guy, in addition to being an excellent performer. I've always wanted to see him, so I am excited! That will be a nice birthday gift, even though my actual birthday is the 21st of Aug.

Well, that's all for now, so have a great Friday tomorrow and a wonderful weekend!
