I’m just a tad over 5’2″ and lately, I’ve been feeling very short!
The mattress set I had at the apartment had only been slept on three nights. The master bedroom set in the Texas house . . bad! The set that was on the master bedroom bed got taken to the dump and we moved the set from the extra room into there. We’ve known for a while that we needed new mattresses but also knew we’d be moving and hoped we could make it without buying mattresses to have to move. We’ve made it! But, I could not wait to sleep on that new mattress Monday night. It was the same mattress set I had bought when we first moved to Nevada, MO but after almost 15 years, that set has seen better days. It is the set that we’re using in Texas though.
Vince likes a softer mattress but I like firm. The new set is extra firm and I realized he was tossing and turning all night so I asked him yesterday morning if he wanted to go to Sam’s and get some kind of topper. YES!
With just the mattress and box springs, it was tall. Add a 4″ topper and it all comes up to my waist. I told Vince I needed to bring in the step ladder and dive into bed. The couple we bought the house from . . you already know we bought some of their furniture and the bedroom furniture was one of the things we bought. They loved it but it just didn’t work in their new house and I think they’re still sad about selling it. I sent him a message last night and said “We may need to borrow a saw.” He wrote back and said “What kind of saw?” and I said “We’re going to have to saw the legs of the bed because it’s too tall.”
This conversation followed.
He didn’t believe for a moment that we were going to saw on that bed!
It’s all ok . . it’s super comfy now. Vince was happy with it and I’m still happy with it. There’s not much more important than getting a good night’s sleep.
