It's now about 3 weeks since we got the much awaited, much talked about curio. Like I mentioned last time, it's almost 2 years in the making. The only consolation we have is it came out good...or maybe we just think so because we've been waiting for it so long. When we ordered this curio more than a year ago we had everything mapped out. Hubby even talked to one of their delivery people to pick it up since he wants to make sure it makes it here in one piece since it's coming all the way from Georgia. The delivery guy asked a few times as to when it would be ready for pick up until he stopped since hubby couldn't give him a definite answer back then. I guess he just gave up...can't blame him...we almost did.
Anyway, when the guy we paid to build this curio finally finished it hubby decided he'd pick it up himself instead of having it shipped. He wanted to see the curio first before paying the guy some more. He was bent in not paying him at all if he's not totally happy with it. If it were up to me, I wouldn't have let him drive that far just to fetch a curio. I get worried everytime he's on the road because I'm afraid that a travel emergency will happen to him. Yep, I'm a little bit paranoid because I know that there's a lot of crazy drivers out there. I'm confident with my husband's driving...it's the other drivers I'm worried about. Obviously he was able to make it back & forth in one piece with the curio. One thing is for sure...we won't be taking this route again if and when we want a custom made product.
