My bed is better than any bed that's... not my bed

Mornin' all.

I spent most of my Saturday futzing around, getting little done, and watching the TEDx Austin livestream. There were a couple really great talks, including Carrie Contey, Turk and Christy Pipkin, Philip Berber and the closing speaker, Mark McKinnon. I cried a few times, I laughed and I felt inspired to do more.

Now I need to actually get stuff done .. I've got early (for me) mornings coming up Tues-Thurs, where I need to drop the kiddos off early so I can be to work in time to capture worldwide calls for reposting on internal portals, so that means dropping Miss O off at 7:30. Since the kids are usually up at 5:30 or so, it's not that hard to get out the door by 7:15, physically. It's just that these are the mornings when they're most likely to sleep in and make it a rush .. sigh.

I want to redo their room a little, get a closet 'system' in there and get them a real dresser to two. I'd love to get a bunk bed, but to do so may mean they don't get a ceiling fan ... it also worries me a little, safety-wise. I love the ones with an actual staircase, but they are wicked expensive.

There's the cheap Ikea option, too.

I need to figure out something to maximize space in there ... Bean doesn't want her own room; she really likes being in there with Miss O. And for now, with the icky cat litter boxes to contend with, they *have* to shar a room.

I wonder if I could hire a carpenter to build a loft in their room?

The bunk beds here are pretty reasonably priced: The older boys have a twin over full from there and it's very well made and suits them perfectly. Try to pass on the ikea bunks if you can - I've heard horror stories of the top bunk falling onto the bottom bunk.

Oh - and if you need closet system ideas, I'm in love with Easy Closets:
