We are still alive, although the last two and a half weeks have been crazy. Never again will we decide to purchase a house and immediately paint nearly the entire thing, at least not unless we pay someone else to paint. There is enough to do when you move into a new house much less attempt to paint the entire interior. We were crazy first time home buyers! But we are wiser now so we know in the future. Anyway I wanted to post and brag on my handy husband. When we started looking at houses he had the idea to built a Murphy bed (for those of you who don't know what that is, it is a bed that can be folded into a cabinet when not being used). We thought this would be ideal. We would have a guest room for when we have guests, but we would also have the room to use for our needs when guests weren't around. We could have a nice desk and room for the treadmill as well. You see Ricky didn't want to built any ole Murphy bed he wanted a desk included. He put in many hours slaving away in the shed back in Memphis to get the bed built and stained just perfect. A special shout out to some of the guys who were nice enough to come over and assist (especially Brock--Thank You). It was a little nerve racking waiting to see if the final contraption would work as planned since it hadn't been all put together before we got up here to Columbia. But of course, Ricky new what he was doing and it works Perfect! It is a beautiful piece of furniture as well as a desk and a guest bed. What a handy guy! Another post is coming soon of new happenings since we've moved. Enjoy the pictures of the Murphy bed below.
