Murphy's Law has a corollary which states that "everything takes longer than you think" and another which posits that "everything is more complicated than you thought". Truth.
The eye doctor visit only took an hour, which was good. While I was there, my wife re-hung the art and photos which had been in the stairwell. That looks very good.
Then we started on the new desk.
It was clear that the boxes were too heavy to carry upstairs, of course, so we brought the desk parts up a few pieces per trip.
The assembly of just the desk (not the hutch) took until nearly 17:00, so we stopped at that point, and ate dinner.
We're going to wait until tomorrow to do the hutch, but will be tackling the art in the bedroom & guest rooms tonight.
