The desk went in one minivan, the return in another, and daisy_knotwise, Sam, and I headed into Chicago, where we offloaded the stuff into the garage. Then I helped Sam exile the Dresser O'Doom into the garage to join the desk.
After this, we were ready for dinner, so we all (now including Bonnie) piled into our van and headed to a nice little Mexican restaurant in their neighborhood.
Sometime in the next two days, Gretchen plans to clean where the old desk stood. Dust? What dust?
