Have a free evening??? Popcorn???

If you can answer each of those questions with a "YES", you need to be at our house for free entertainment.

All day, I have been moving furniture from the girls' bedroom to the dining room. I'm still not finished. I kinda gave up after I got the chest of drawers stuck in the main bathroom. About 5 or 6 years ago, Stan and I decided that it was time to renew our bedroom furniture in our room. It has served as well and still looks brand new. Last November, the girls decided that they were ready to move up from bunkbeds to a queen-sized bed. Since their dresser was built in under the bed and at one end, we knew that we needed to opt for at least a matching dresser. We all fell in love with the same set and quickly bought it before someone else plunked money down for it first. A few days later, the headboard, footboard, dresser, mirror, chest of drawers and nightstand were delivered to our home. Given the fact that the furniture is constructed out of solid Walnut, each piece is extremely heavy. The two delivery men took almost a full hour to move the furniture in from the truck and set it up in the bedroom. Even the nightstand required the strength of both delivery men to get it into the bedroom. We decided that once the furniture was in place, it would not be able to be moved for a l--o--n--g time.

As our daughters have grown, their numbers of clothes and toys have also. Little by little, they had smaller empty space in their bedroom. Since we have renovated our bedroom and replaced the original closet with our new walk-in, we have more space than they do. As a result of that, we decided to trade furniture with them. Our bedroom suite, though beautiful, is much smaller than theirs. It makes much more sense to let them have it. Leighlyn and Abigayle are looking forward to the additional space in their room.

This morning, I slaved away moving all three pieces of their furniture except for their beadboard and footboard down the hallway only to discover that it is impossible for me to place their furniture in our bedroom through the doorway. All was not lost though. I have been blessed with a husband who can do anything and everything! He volunteered to take out the large window and our bedroom so that we can move the furniture through the opening. Fortunately, I was even able to find some friends who will help him heave this heavier than most furniture.

So, if you're bored and want to watch something interesting that does not require Cable or Satellite, come on over! Maybe you can even get in on the action! LOL!!!
