No Country for Old Beds

I went to the Sleep Matters website to help me find a new bed that would replace the old one that I’ve been sleeping on for more than 20 years. The bed is so old that it has lasted through two marriages with me. The bed is as old as one of my kids. I finally decided that it was time to let go of the old bed and get one that would allow me to sleep without waking up in the middle of the night from tossing and turning.

Since my kids had old beds too, I decided to get them new ones. They can still sleep on the twin sized beds since they’re still growing boys, but I need a full sized bed. I like to be able to sleep on a wide space and move to any side that I want. That’s also something that you can’t really do when you’re sleeping with a significant other, because they’re taking up half of the bed, and a good chunk of the covers. My previous husbands would always grab the covers in their sleep and we would have a tug of war in an attempt to stay covered.

Laying on the new foam bed that I purchased is like laying on a cloud in heaven. I look forward to getting in the bed each night. My kids are enjoying their foam beds too. Naturally, when the beds first arrived, they started jumping on them to test them out, and I had to tell them to cut it out. I probably did the same thing when I was a kid, but I really don’t remember. At least, I didn’t do it in front of my parents. They would have probably punished me for jumping on the bed and feared that I would break it.
