Well, it’s Wednesday and we haven’t started our crazy new bunkbeds yet, so I guess we’re not going to get it done this week but it’s not my fault! No, I’m not blaming morning sickness, though I might play that card soon enough.
Right now I’m blaming hubby. Well, sort of. He insists that we launch our 2 e-books before we start yet another project. They’re already done. We just need to add a few images and decide on cover designs and choose a final title for the cookbook, and…well, maybe we’re not quite done. But we’re so very close and we really want to cross the finish line on that project!
In the meantime, we have a set of storage shelves that just happens to have the very dimensions we have proposed for our bunkbeds – 4 shelves, 2 feet wide, with 2 feet of headspace – so we’re taking down the bunkbeds in the middle bedroom and setting up the shelves in their place as a trial.
By the way, when I say “we,” I mean the children are taking down the bunkbeds.
The kids will take turns sleeping on the shelves to make sure that they have enough space before we start constructing the official wooden beds with hinged storage, etc.
Since the shelves will take so much less space than the old beds, we can also begin moving bookshelves into the middle bedroom, our future library. If all goes well, our living room may feel far more spacious by the end of the day. Or maybe the other bedroom. Or my room. I wonder how many bookcases we can fit in there right away?
Oops. We have a change of plans. Or rather, a miscommunication. The kids want to move as many bookcases as possible into the library right away and put the sleeping shelves into the bedroom where we will be building the wooden ones soon. They’ll all start sleeping in one room tonight. I’m ok with that! It means I can get the shelves out of both the living room and my bedroom today!
It took them all of 20 minutes to assemble the shelves with no real assistance from me.
And they couldn’t wait to pile on, even though it’s only officially room for 4 children.
But I’m not quite as happy as they are. Does your living room look like this?
