Now that the new bed is coming, the water bed must be drained. We finally figure out how we did it the last time when we refinished the waterbed frame. We want to use our frame. it has drawers underneath the bed frame. It also matches all our pine bedroom furniture. ( It only took us thirty five years of marriage to finally get a bedroom set where it ALL matched) Far Guy has measured, and he thinks we need to cut twelve inches off the sides and three inches off the ends. He must have looked at the measuring instrument incorrectly..cause when I looked at it..we only had to cut off three inches from the length. We work together well, and we finished hauling the pieces out to the workshop, cutting them off and carting them back in, and we had it all back together about five minutes before they delivered the mattress. Now would it fit.. YES...we must have measured right..finally.
Far Guy tried to nap, he just watched TV, Chance had a nap. Last night was the real test, I made it until five AM ..Far Guy said "Are you leaving me? " No, just the bed, I went to the couch, grabbed my blanket and slept like a log. Far Guy could have come out to the other couch instead he stayed the duration, and said " What have I done? That was like sleeping on a bed of nails." I told him it wasn't that bad, it was kinda like a bed of roses with a few thorns. In a week or two we will be used to it, it will just take some time.:)
