You didn’t know there were any going on, did you? Hahhaha! And you think you know everything happening over here! Au contraire, my (three) friend(s)!
(I hate paneling, btw, and we are slowly but surely unpaneling this whole damn house.)
Back to the bedrooms: there were three twin beds in there built on wooden platforms with bookshelves at the head of the beds. All of it painted in a dark brown dingy color to match the crappy paneling, I suppose. Duty slept in one of the beds (snoring issues) on a cheapy twin mattress because he can sleep damn near anywhere.
So, he got it in his head to demolish two of those platforms and went ahead and did the third after we got a good estimate on drywall work in there. I’m happy about it because that room was just a big storehouse for crap (all mine, admittedly).
At one time, it was going to be my WooWoo Room and/or office but with his snoring and my weird sleeping habits, it was just better for him to sleep in there. (As an only child, I am not big on sharing a bed with anyone. I’m now 53 and that’s not likely to change anytime soon.)
Every day for the past week, the construction dude has been in sawing and banging and tearing down paneling. It’s been a wee bit chaotic here so the doggies have spent time at Camp Melissa (and YEY for peace for me!) . It’s a win/win for them and me.
On the downside, Duty didn’t think this one through very well when he demo’d his only sleeping place. He’s been couching it for the past five nights and it’s wreaking havoc on his sleep patterns. I’ve offered to give him the bed (and dogs) and I’ll sleep on the couch but he’s all about being gallant (and dutiful) and refuses no matter how many times I offer.
Best part of it all? I bought a new mattress for me! The one we have now is almost 12 years old and boy, I can feel it. Cannot get into a comfortable sleep position no matter how I try. And I wake up with aches and pains that I don’t have when I sleep on hotel beds, for example. It was time.
Renovations continue apace, indeed. Now all I need is a different desk for my office and I’ll be set.
