Well, when I got to Ikea yesterday, I realized I had left my list at home and was shocked to find that Smaland would only watch my kid for 45 minutes. 45 minutes!!!
So, I dragged my poor friend through the store at a break-neck pace and stuffed our bags full of everything organizational I could find. We had only gotten through about half of the store when I had to run back to the Smaland to beg for more time. They gave me another half hour. Have you seen this store??? It practically took me a half hour just to get back to where I left off!
So, I figured out where we left off and continued running through the store grabbing stuff left and right, and next thing I know, the Smaland buzzer goes off. Surely this must be a mistake, I thought, I have 16 and a half more minutes left- so I ignore the buzzer. A few more minutes go by and they PAGE me over the LOUDSPEAKER! Well, I started to panic a little as I run back through the maze to see what the deal is, and when I got back to Smaland, my daughter told me that she had them call me because she was bored and needed some meatballs to eat! Yeah, me too kid, me too!
