Today I had the bright idea that it was time to clean my bedroom. I mean really clean. Like move the bed and everything.
Now for most people this wouldn't be a very big deal, but for me it meant a call to Aunt Chrissy to ask her to come over to help me with the big girl sleigh bed. I love my bed, I really do. It was my first purchase as a real grown-ass adult and I loved it the moment I saw it. But it's big. Really big. And heavy too.
Within seven seconds, Aunt Chrissy had rummaged through the laundry room cabinets to find the slidy-discy thingies that I bought on impulse from QVC about ten years ago. Then after she channeled her inner Incredible Hulk, she lifted each corner of the big girl sleigh bed and stuck one of the slidy-discy thingies under it. MAGIC! Woo Hoo! I was able to slide the whole bed around as if it was gliding across a frozen pond.
(Oh, holy crap! I forgot that the coverlet is still in the dryer! So you can see my crappy bed-making skills and a messy blanket hanging over the edge! Oh no! Please don't tell Martha!)
The real reason I wanted to show you this picture was so that you could see the slidy-discy thingies. See?
After a quick trip to the grocery store (avocados were on sale, don't you know), I settled in for the night with LJP's "Star Spangled Quilt" and....woo hoo for me!.....finished it! I am so tickled with this finish. Now if I can just figure out what to do with it:
Well, the clock is telling me that it's time to find a pillow. Stewey has been a real trooper during the cleaning festivities today, so I want to spend a little cuddle time with him before I pass out. He asked me to start reading the Harry Potter books to him, but I think we'll need to start them tomorrow night. Mommie's tired.
(And yes, I do read to my dog every night. Methinks it's why he's smarter than I am.)
