    Frustration is...

    walking out the door this morning on the way to work and finding your brand new Jungle hammock on the front steps, all nicely wrapped and tidy, ready to unwrap and hang, the sun was shining the birds were chirping and the wind was gently blowing...and i had to toss it inside and go off to work, then tonight I have to go to a late class and so will not be home till late, and all the while it will be lying on the floor, wrapped and uninspected/played with...sigh.

    Not to hijack, but I was just stunned that mine came all the way from Thailand wrapped in nothing but Saran Wrap, without the first bit of damage.
