The new addition to the household

Today was such a good day for me!  I've been looking for a bunk bed set for the boys that has a twin bed on top and a full on the bottom.  I've been haunting Craigslist several times a day, just waiting and watching.  The best price that I've seen has been around $100 and so that's what I was prepared to pay. 

Well, I found an ad for a yard sale that mentioned a bunk bed.  I figured, what the heck, I'll send an email and see if she will sell it early.  After all, all she could say was no, right?  She didn't.  When I opened my email and found out the price I was practically tripping all over myself to get there and put cash in her hand even though I didn't have a truck to move it at the time.  You know what she was asking for it?  $25 bucks!  Woohoo!  What a steal.

My folks drove two hours to bring a trailer to load everything up for me (and put it together too.)  My parents are the best!!!

The bed is styled like this one but the color is all red:


Now, to make things even better, let me tell you what happened yesterday.  We (my Mom and I) went thrift store shopping with the kids.  The Youngest saw a comforter set and began absolutely begging for it.  I've never in my life heard a child beg for linens.  It was the funniest sight.  It looked brand new and had super heroes on it.  The Youngest is obsessed with super heroes, but especially these: Batman & Robin and it had all the bad guys too.  The bad guys were particularly important since he prefers those to Batman & Robin.  He's very strange that way.  So I bought them, knowing that in the not too far future we would be getting a bunk bed. 

And now today, I have one.  For $25 bucks.   How cool is that?
