    Just a personal note about your daughter’s room—i STILL think you should surprise her at Christmas and get a sheepskin rug for between those beds…I put one next to my bed–OMGosh what a WONDERFUL feeling on the soles of my feet upon getting out of bed!!! Costco has the best price….
    just sayin’….
