Pardon Me While I Gush

I just love my new mattress set. For a couple of reasons........

I know I worked for Simmons. And I have my issues - with the company NOT the product. They really do make the best damned mattresses on the market. AND the R&D department really do care that they are making peoples lives better. That's not the company Koolaid. It's the way it is.

That being said - Oh.My.Goodness.

It's not a top of the line. In fact it's an entry level product. But it supports my back. It's a little firmer than I like, but it's important to remember that buying a mattress is like buying a pair of jeans. You may love the jeans when you buy them. They look good - they fit great!! BUT - they get better with time. After a while they start getting broken in. They start to conform to your body. That's how it is with a mattress. All foam (except for latex) is firm when you first get it. It needs to be broken in. After a while it will start to learn your sleep patterns and conform. Even given all that - this is just soooo much better than what I had.

And the BEST PART?!?! - I got a plush with a 2" boxtop pillow top. What's that mean? It means that when I sit on the edge of the bed MY feet don't touch the ground. MY feet. Folks - I have a 37" inseam. I have never had to CLIMB into bed - ever, in my whole life. I felt like the Princess and the Pea when I got up this morning.

So I treated myself. I made the coffee, put it in my handy dandy carafe and grabbed a tray. I brought it all into my bed place and wallowed. For hours. I watched a movie, drank coffee and just basically felt very lazy. It was the PERFECT way to start a Sunday.

Irresponsible be damned. THIS was the exact right thing to do. Hell - I might even take me a nap this afternoon. Just for the excuse to climb back in!!!

It's good reading that you have something in your life to enjoy - finally.

(Obvious snarky comment about "company" for the bed deleted.)

The best bed I ever had was a queen size simmons; I used to live my life out of that thing, and NO, I never got out of it on Sundays! LOL!

I'm jealous! I really miss the days of being able to stay in bed all day, with or without company!

Just a couple things... While we are different, as I've been known to curl up on damned near any flat surface, concrete, carpet, bed of my puckup, or the couch, I'd rather sleep in the bed. Things don't always work out that way though.

Also, how in the hell do you know so much 'bout latex?
