I've been looking to get rid of my queen sized bed and replace it with something smaller. Perhaps a daybed. Oldest Son finally decided that if he could slide the box spring and mattress down the hall, maneuver it around the corner and into his apartment, he would take it. That was accomplished Sunday evening.
It has been a good, comfortable bed. But instead of the spring sitting on a regular bed frame, it sat on a wood base that didn't allow for any under-the-bed storage. And because the only space for my shelves that hold my home canned foods is in my bedroom, things were getting a bit cramped. And maybe with more space I could fit in the small quilt frame I have been lusting after. No room anywhere else for it.
Anyway, this seemed to be a good time to do some early spring cleaning. I haven't been able to move the bed by myself to clean behind it. That was glaringly obvious when the bed left my apartment.
Sometimes the cat I had would disappear - especially when someone other than me was in my apartment. I never could find where she was hiding. Even a couple of years ago when there was a fire in the building, the firemen rescued the dogs I had at the time, but couldn't find the cat even though they took more risks than they should have in the effort.
Now I know where she hid out. There was a vast amount of cat hair in the tiny space between the head of the bed and the wall. How she managed to wedge her fat self in there without getting stuck is beyond me. I think I vacuumed up enough cat hair to build a whole new cat.
So spring cleaning is coming early this year. I need to wipe down the wall and woodwork and run the carpet cleaning machine over the carpet. It is kind of nice to have a head start on that project. Looking on the bright side, I am already nearly done with two-thirds of the spring cleaning!
