On a good note, yesterday saw the arrival of a used computer desk and a new refrigerator.
After setting at the plastic table in my Aeron chair :) I realized that it wobbles too much (the table, not the chair) and that I probably need to get a "real" desk. A quick trip to the Habitat for Humanity store and I am the new owner of a $35 desk. It needs a bit of a scrub and some screw tightening but I think it will do just fine. The fridge was a new item from Lowes that only cost $299 and it even has a soda can dispenser in the door! So, cool (literally).
Now I just have to get into the office and scrub it down. It has a strong plastic smell and I want to get rid of that before I store my Sweet Tea in it. :)
