We just finished putting together our new brass bed frame which we had ordered on line. Yesterday we drove to Rutland and purchased a new mattress and box spring for our bedroom, which will be delivered in early October when we will be back in Vt. . We are temporarily sleeping in our other queen bed in a room next to our room. Last week our handy-man moved our old bed to an unused extra room in our basement. We had him put in a new floor and paint the walls in there a few months ago. I put up new curtains too. We are getting a bit crowded here with our existing 4 bedrooms, especially since our youngest daughter has now added a new baby boy to our family (7/23/2010). That gives us 8 adults, and 5 grandchildren if and when everyone is here in Vt. at the same time, as happened in July this summer, although the baby had not yet arrived.. We put a queen blow -up bed in there this summer and were able to use the space. It is a fairly large room, with a large closet and a window. It is on a "walk-out level", but still can be a bit damp even though we run a dehumidifier in the adjoining basement. My girls are all quite picky so they don't like even the idea of dampness at all, however this summer the temperature went to 101 while they were here, and at one point they were all trying to get dibs on the basement room because it was much cooler than the rooms upstairs. We have fans here, but no AC. The two oldest grandchildren are now 12 (girl) and almost 11 (boy), so they will need more privacy, which the extra bedroom will afford.
