No hurry I guess.  Still have some time.  I was glad to get that mattress and get it in there - though I still have yet to squeeze it through that narrow doorway to get it into the actual "bedroom" itself.  I couldn't do it alone because I will have to fold the thing down in the front while someone else is pushing it from …
