I GET A NEW MATTRESS EVERY 25 YEARS OR SO, WHETHER I NEED IT OR NOT...


Just look at her, isn't she beautiful?! And the delivery people kindly carted the old one away. I told them, "Be careful not to trip over the ripped box spring bottom fabric, it's dragging" and "Watch out for the mattress, some coils are broken and poking through." I wanted to add, "And be kind," but I didn't. I'm the first to admit I got my money's worth out of that bed. In fact,I really didn't mean to put off buying a new one for so long...I just could never make up my mind what to get, and a bed is such a major commitment. Not to mention expensive. I did try other solutions in the past--a futon, a sofa bed--but was always unhappy with them, and went back to my trusty old one. You see, I could never throw it out, but kept it tucked away in a spare room just in case. But finally there comes a time in every relationship when one must face the facts and take stock of the situation. Waking up with a nice scratch on one's leg is a good place to begin. Anyway, I don't want to get all TMI on you with this, but when I woke up this morning it was 7 a.m. not 4:30, and it didn't feel like I'd been sleeping on something that violated the Geneva Convention. I think this is going to be the start of a beautiful friendship.

We need to get one soon, too.

Happy Sleeping!

Congrats on the new mattress, Deb.... We got one in 2002--when we moved to Fairfield Glade. It's still like new---so hopefully it will last for MANY years.
Hugs,

Verrry nice! Oh man there (barely) is nothing better than a good mattress. I'd say you passed the statute of limitations on your old one. We have to get one too at some point. Right now we have top quality finger foam serving us well.

Sweet dreams. We got a new one a couple of years ago, one of those Temperpedic ones and it's wonderful!!

Time gets away from me. I think I've had my current bed nearly 20 years. I know it's been awhile since I flipped/rotated the mattress, and it's two boyfriends later, and....

Well, maybe in a few years...

The word verification is "dormi" would you believe it??

Buying a foam mattress can be really tricky nowadays with the choices being so vast.
