We slept in the new apartment for the first time last night. Other than sitting on the couch that’s about all we could do. We haven’t got any clothes or kitchen supplies over there yet. We expect to be sleeping there nights and coming back to the house to pack, eat and use the phone at the house during the day.
The Bowyer came over to the house last night and he and I loaded the couch and the bed into his truck. Getting the couch out of the house was the hardest part. It’s long enough for Nizzibet and I to both nap on it. The front door opens into a small foyer. From there you can go through a narrow door to enter the living room or a narrow door to enter the first bedroom. The couch had to be angled through the living room door into an on-end position in the foyer, turned and then angled out the front door. The bed frame and mattress followed much more easily.
The box spring that goes with the mattress has been hibernating in the garage for the last four years. It wouldn’t fit down the stairs for our bedroom at the house. We had it well wrapped in black plastic and sitting on a pallet. No mold or bugs or squirrel nests, yay!
It felt a little odd sleeping on the bed last night. Until now the mattress has been sitting on a single boxspring paired with doubled over foam pallet. Sitting at a list I might add.
