I Need A New Mattress

I believe that putting things out into the world sometimes makes them happen, so here I go.

Bill and I need a new mattress. The mattress Bill and I are sleeping on was the cheapest one we could find at Darvin Furniture. While I was happy at the time about the great deal we got, my back hates me. Absolutely hates me.

We have a sofa bed in the basement. Whenever I think that is a good idea to sleep on I remember that that is about 13 years old. It is also falling apart, so a new sofa bed is definitely on the list of things we need for the house.

Last year, I was able to do a store review for Sleep Number (no I didn’t get to review their bed – just my store experience). That made me realize what a good mattress is suppose to feel like — not what we have in our bedroom.

Bill tosses and turns most nights which in turn wakes me up. I wake up with a backache most mornings. I thought when I lost weight that would go away – it didn’t.

So I’m putting it out to the world, we need a new mattress! It’s at the bottom of the list of what we need to do for the house (tree removal, fence, addition are all in front of it), but damn it, I need a good night sleep! LOL


  1. We finally got a new bed from IKEA. I am impressed with the mattress my husband chose, it's super comfortable and sturdy. I love it!

  2. We really need a whole new bed & mattress. Ours is *okay*, but I want a GOOD one! We always have sore backs &I'm sure it starts with our bed.
