Why would someone throw something like that away????
Fast forward to yesterday and the day before: We had (1) to wait for the last to be up in his apartment-the 8th-, and (2) we had to wait for a two bedroom to become available-the 13th-.
We picked up the keys late Friday evening and began the move...still without a bed for my daughter. The reason for this is that I was living with (taking care of) my Grammie prior to this move, and she had a spare room with two twin beds. I obviously didn't need to buy one. Well, she told me i could take one with me when we got the new apartment, which was great. However, that would have left Karina bedless for a week. (We go back home for the holidays next weekend.)
Anyway, as we were moving one of the first loads yesterday, my boyfriend slotted a couple of guys throwing out a mattress wrapped in plastic. When he asked then about it, he found out it was a perfectly nice twin bed, complete with 4 drawers and a cabinet underneath. The one we were GOING to get was just a standard twin with headboard and footboard.
Well, the guys told us we could have it. The only thing wrong with it was that they no longer had room for it or needed it at all. My daughter felt like Christmas had come early, lol. She's begged in the past for a bed like that, but it was never feasible...until yesterday. We set it up immediately, and we're all happy she no longer has to sleep on the couch. :-) I know this is mostly pointless, but things have been rollercoaster-like for a while, and we're all really happy that something good finally happened.
