The Chem Geek Princess Moves (Out) In


If you have been wondering where Ragamuffin has been for the past week, well, we've been doing some exciting things, the most important of which is that the Chem Geek Princess has moved out of our house and into one of her very own!
You might not think that moving one young woman from one room would be that time consuming, but . . .

. . . it took a bit of maneuvering to fit the oversize pillow-top mattress and box springs into Henry.

Henry is a big, red truck, but the topper narrows slightly towards the top, and box springs don't bend.

It was 30 MPH down the mountain.

Henry, parked outside the CGP's "little house."
The Engineering Geek is getting ready to unload and one of our 'adopted' daughters has arrived to help.

The Chem Geek Princess and her Very Serious Man Friend wrestle the mattress onto the box springs.

The sunset coming in the south window of the den. The couch and loveseat, both found on Craig's List, match the wall color very well.

The bed, all set up.
It looks very large in the "little house's" master bedroom.
Until she has money to get a headboard, the CGP plans to use a body pillow at the head of the bed.

The Engineering Geek admires the club table with leather chairs we bought for the Chem Geek Princess as a college graduation present.

In the true spirit of frugality, we got it at the American Home Store close-out sale. There is some slight damage to one corner and a nick in the top. But, hey, we got the whole thing for about a quarter of the original price.

That's why the EG is smiling!

The CGP and her VSMF put the tile in last weekend.

So you can see that I was definitely too busy to blog.
The CGP needed almost everything for her new household.
Luckily, there is a Good Will store only a block away.

Never buy retail!

Congrats. Lovely home.

I laugh about the headboard. When we married, we didn't have a head board and said we'd get one some day. 19 1/2 years later, we still have no headboard! lol A couple of pretty pillows make up for it.

You must be so proud of your daughter!
