Princess and the Pea

Our mattresses were delivered last Saturday and everyone was happy, except for one little thing, mine was too tall. The mattress was so high that we were jumping, climbing, lurching, and dragging ourselves up on it in every way we could manage. A relaxing evening of slumber only began after this aerobic warmup. On Monday morning I called the store and asked them to bring me a low profile boxspring. I had this option offered to me at the store, but not knowing just how high this bed was going to be, I opted for the regular boxspring. I was so sick of mattress shopping that I wanted to get the heck out of Dodge and go home, so I didn't put much thought into this offer.

The low boxsprings made all the difference and bedtime is what it should be from beginning to end... relaxing.

And as for the reason that I bought a new bed, I'm a side sleeper and I was having terrible arm pains that would wake me up during the night. And throughout the day, it was a strain to lift my right arm. At first I thought I had strained a muscle in my arm when cleaning the pool last Fall, but when it never improved, I became concerned.

Now I don't want to jinx anything, but the last three nights I have had no pain and my arm is feeling better everyday. I'm not saying it's the bed yet, but I'm a bit perplexed by this sudden change.

That's awesome to get a new bed. I need to buy three beds! Glad to hear it's working out so far. Maybe when I'm grown up like you, I'll have an actual bedroom suit. It looks great!
