Pretty tired of handling things alone

So I've posted about this before, and it's not new to single women who have to do everything themselves if no one is around. Most of the time, of course, I am prepared--it's not a surprise, and sometimes it's truly a welcome challenge "Yes, I can do this."
But sometimes it's just really hard. I've been redecorating my living room and dining room--painting, all new furniture, some of it requires assembly. I received a couple of tall bookcases yesterday and the packages looked damaged. The driver even alerted me to it and I made a note of it on the receipt. So, after a really long and stressful day working, I decided to tackle the assembly (hey, I've done it before!). Well, of course the first one was damaged. So, I started putting all the pieces back in the box but it was very confusing. I opened the other box to try to figure out how the pieces went back in. These are nice bookcases and really heavy, and I realized I was going to need help putting them together. I hurt my back a little doing all of this. It's so frustrating because these are the last big pieces I need to finish this project.
