OK, we're ready - bring on the child! He now has a place to sleep and call his own. We spent last Saturday at yard sales buying a twin bed, bed safety rail, booster seat for eating at the table, stroller, tricycle, and some cool toys and a couple of books. It was my first time experiencing yard sales first-hand and it was really neat because we got everything we were looking for, and then some (but we didn't go overboard.) And we felt good that we were supporting the "reduce, reuse, recycle" principle of lower impact living.
We decided that because Andy's sister and 2 kids are coming to visit next week for two weeks that we might as well move the bedroom furniture around and utilize the new bed. So, we switched around the guest room into the office and the computer into the craft area and Kevin's bed and dresser into what had been the guest room. Yesterday Andy bought a mattress, so we just need a mattress pad to put under the new sheets we bought and - voila! - we'll have a new bedroom.
There's lots of reorganizing and putting away and giving/throwing away of stuff to make the new guest room/craft room into a livable space, but we're working on it.
