International Box Day
I often miss Box Day. I don't know why, my cats LOVE box, and often will jump on it or in it with in seconds of it being unattended. This year we I lucked out.
I recently purchased a new Sleep Number bed. We bought one 10 or so years ago and there was really nothing wrong with our old bed, but I kept seeing the commercials for the bed where you can raise one side and stop your mate from snoring - yes my husband snores. We looked at the bed, and realized it wasn't going to work for us and the cats. However they were clearancing out their floor models so we got a newish (they replaced the cover everyone laid on) king size bed for about $1000 less than a new queen. That deal was hard to pass up, even if we did have to buy a new headboard (eventually, right now we don't have one). Fortunately we didn't need to buy new sheets, as I have been buying king sheets for quite some time now so we would have overhang on the sheet and since our previous mattress was so think, it just made it easier.
So in order to get this monstrosity in our house, the current bed went into my husband's office to make a guest room. My husband's office went into the solarium - since he was using that for an office too and frankly it is his favorite room in the house - and the furniture in there has been displaced until we find a home for it - be it in our home or someone else's.
talk about your upheaval! to make matters worse we also decided to swap the couches in the media room and the living room - but that will happen once we clean up the ditritus from the chaos we have been living in lately.
but you didn't come here to see me loose my mind.. I know you, you want to see the cats and (one of) the box..
It was enjoyed, but isn't nearly as fun as smaller boxes, because it was hard to claim as one's own, and a shared box is not as much fun.. king of the mountain just doesn't work when there are three of you at the top of the mountain.
