Yes, many bad words were said while I dismantled the rest of the bed and stashed it in another room. Once I got the hammer the cats decided attempting to "help" was not a good idea.
Only took 20 minutes to have everything rearranged but as you might guess there wasn't any more sleep to be had. And I discovered the most interesting bruises when I hopped in the shower. I'm not sure exactly how I managed it but the one on the inside of my leg has a line through it. I guess that's where it hit although it really doesn't make much sense. As I said, the inside of my leg.
Three days later I've decided I really don't much like sleeping on the mattress on the floor even if it means my neighbor's dusk to dawn spotlight isn't shining directly in my face. I know a carpenter. I'll have to consult him about repairing the bed. Perhaps he can fix it so it lasts another 87 years.
It's always something.
