We survived Mardi Gras only to be laid low by the flu that seems to be going around. G came down with it Wednesday as did my business partner, and I manged to hold out until Sunday. Neither one of us have been this sick in a long time. Not since our wedding, but that's another story. We are much better but still not 100%. Last weekend we were going to buy a new mattress but both felt too crappy. Yesterday it finally happened. Last time we were in Baton Rouge, we stayed at G's brother and he had a new mattress he bought at Sam's club that was very comfy and only $300. We've felt overwhelmed by the choices of mattresses out there, but after the test drive, we decided we're going to Sam's. We have G's father's pick-up truck so that makes the task easier. We were almost to Sam's when G comment that he was having trouble braking. *gulp* We parked safely in Sam's parking lot and G poked around under the hood. It appeared it was out of brake fluid. Luckily for us there was an Auto Zone across the street. Disaster averted and into the fray that is Sam's Club on a Saturday morning.

I was hoping that a queen-sized bed would be much larger than a full, but it's only 4-5 inches wider. I slept great last night and didn't want to get out of bed this morning. And now I finally have a room that's 99% done (still need a ceiling fan) and can decorate. woohoo! Those of you who came to G's 40th birthday party last year, may remember this room as the "food room" - big difference now huh?

Last weekend I took a box of beads to the Freret Market for recycling. And wouldn't you know it, while I was up in the attic yesterday I discovered ANOTHER box of beads I didn't know we had. *sigh* If we wanted to take down the economy of China, all we need is for everyone in New Orleans to take all the beads out of their attics and have the krewes reuse them. That would show them.

Awesome headboard/shelf/wall thing. Greg's handiwork?

That is indeed Greg's handiwork. All all recycled wood too.
