dusty the destroyer: bed frame edition
I'm writing this post from the middle of my rickety bed. The middle is the only place I can sleep without feeling like I will roll off my mattress. The other night we had a storm. Dusty, while usually quite calm and peaceful (at least when I'm around) sometimes flies off the handle when a storm is brewing. The other night was no exception. Around two o'clock in the morning, Dusty decided he just must get under the bed. I have bins of off-season clothing and other stored items tucked under the bed, so he couldnt figure out how to get under there ( I have since moved a few bins so he can safely and easily get underneath). The next morning, I awoke on the left side of the bed and felt like I was sinking. When I got up, I heard the bed creak and saw the left side raise. In all his fussing the night before, Dusty bent the bed frame. I am hoping I can bend it back into shape, but until then, I'll be sleeping in the center of the bed.
