One of the things that attracted us to our house was its possession of a fifth bedroom.
I feel lucky to have this extra twin bed, a blanket (if boring), an extra nightstand, and a place to put it all. The room is small, for sure, but perfect for a visiting grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or friend. A guest bedroom. What a novel idea! We've already put it to good use.
But come May 2009, this bedroom will give up its guest status for a permanent resident.
We are so excited.
