2.IKEA is not a place for indecisive people
3.I love IKEA
4.I hate IKEA
So about a week ago i went to IKEA for the second time ever in my life........the first time i went was in Atlanta so i couldnt get anything because i wasnt living there!!...perfect, no decisions to make!
This time, i had a purpose, furnish my new apartment....specifically, my room!!!!
So with my mind set, i headed to IKEA.....WOW!....i remembered it from the first time, but when your actually looking for things, all of a sudden, there seems to be SO much!!!...PERFECT!
I was so overwhelmed i had to leave, with nothing in hand....
you think i'm joking....nope, i was literally overwhelmed....thinking "Gosh, where do i even start?"
This past weekend, i finally found my sheets (i know, i know...its been 2 months....i just knew what i wanted and couldnt find it) so i felt i had a better idea of what i was looking for......IKEA, round 3....3rd times a charm right????
I get there, optimistic, ready to shop! I start making my round...and then another round....and then another round....yup, and another........"I'm starving"...i'm thinking this is my reason for not being able to make decisions....so i decide to try IKEA's food...swedish meatballs, mashed potatoes, and some red berry thing for $4.99......A-MAZING!!!!!...seriously De-LISH! mmmmmm!!!! my stomach is filled, i've thought about the things i've seen, hopefully my mind will have fuel to make decisions...
Round 3 1/2......i begin making another round at the beginning of the store, i get to the bed frame i was looking at....
"Ooohhh, what's that bed frame over there???"
"Oh great Mark, i thought we decided over this one at dinner?"
"i KNOW, but this might be cute too!!"
"you know what!?!?!?!....your driving me crazy!!"
"i KNOW, i'm sorry, there's just so much, PLEASE be patient!"
"i've BEEN patient for the last 2 hours" ..... "AAAHHHHH, your driving me crazy"
"NO! your driving me crazy"
"FINE! i'll get the one i said i was gonna get!"
(yes, this is just me, i can't shop with others......my mind is enough)
So i start heading down to the warehouse, collecting other things in my shopping bag....lights, decorative things, tools, etc.....No, it wasnt that easy.....same decision making process with each thing!....And then i finally get to the bed frame to actually pick it up so i can purchase it.....yup you guessed it, i start thinking again......
"Is this really what you want?"
"Mark, I've had it!!!!!!"
...sigh...... i drop my shopping bag and exit the store.......3 1/2 hours later......
NOTHING in hand....
It's not me, it's IKEA....there's too much there!!!.....
"No, its you!"
