After the coat of polyurethane was down, my wife asked a simple question:
"Why didn't you just pull the extra mattress in here?"
You see, I have an extra bed in my house. The main bed's mattress would have been too heavy to move, but the extra mattress would not have been too heavy to bring into the living room.
But my immediate answer to the issue was the air mattress, which is way more uncomfortable. I had totally forgotten about the second mattress.
Naturally, at that point it was too late to change things, so I'm even more tired going through my day today. Tonight I'll be sleeping in my regular bed, but tomorrow! Tomorrow I'll bring the second mattress into the living room, and so that night should be a better night's sleep than last night was.
