This particular sunset graced us with its beauty a few weeks ago. Stunning, no?
I’m writing this post early because the delivery company just called and instead of the promised three hour window, they’ve given us a four hour window starting at 9 am. Yikes. That means we have to get up early and I have to pour some coffee down my gullet so that I can think and move my muscles and then we have to:
Move the queen mattress downstairs
Move the split queen box springs downstairs
Take apart the old bed frame – move it downstairs
Remove my homemade headboard and stash it somewhere until I can remove the vintage fabric I used
Pause while I vacuum under the bed
Assemble the new bed frame
Attach the headboard
Move all things that couldn’t be moved until the last minute out of the way
I’ve already moved a lot of the things in my studio into the spare bedroom and I’ve taken anything down from the walls that might be in the way, including the painting and sign that hang on the landing, my mantel shelf in the studio, everything hanging on the wall in the studio, the curtain on the window in the studio and my shelf with all my egg cups which is precariously close to where these guys will be maneuvering the mattresses.
Poor Don. I’m the one in the family that thinks all this through ahead of time and I’ve been talking, talking and talking about it – especially today. In the meantime, in the midst of my obsessive planning, Don found out he is filming a small scene in the television show Elementary and most likely that will be happening on Friday. He’s dealing with travel plans for his departure during the first week of February for 2 months in Boston (jealous) to do The Seagull with the Huntington Theatre Company (a company I used to work for in my Boston days.) It’s been a crazy day. (I’m writing this on Thursday because I won’t have time to write a post tomorrow morning.)
I’m trying the ad over the header, as you can see. It’s a bit jarring to me because I really, really am particular about the look of my blog. But I have to hope that the ad will make enough of a difference in the long run that I will think it’s worth it. Thanks for your support, dear friends.
Okay. Love to you all and Happy Thursday.
UPDATE: After all our work, dismantling everything, etc. THEY BROUGHT THE WRONG SIZE. They brought a King mattress. I am beside myself with anger. We’re waiting to speak to a supervisor.
