This is nothing new, it’s a great bed; has been since we bought it about 8 years ago. It was the first bed we got that wasn’t firm – and it changed my life. Soooo comfortable…especially compared to the years I had wasted on firm mattresses. Magic words: pillow top.

More specifically, though, I love my bed in the morning.

Oh, the bed is fine at night, too. I can fall asleep without any trouble, but it’s also comfortable for just reading or playing games on the iPad – so much so that I’m often too late turning out my light. At night my bed works against me getting a full 8-hour sleep.

But it’s best in the morning. It’s divine. When I wake up (maybe even get up to pee) then crawl back into a warm bed and fall back asleep? That’s the best. Those are the days I wake feeling the most rested.

Sadly, that only happens on weekends; and then, only if I’m lucky. The weekday routine involves being jolted rudely awake by a cold and uncaring bit of technology before having to roll out of bed without any time to enjoy a final snuggle in the cozy sheets and soft pillows.

Sigh.

Why does work always get in the way of life’s little pleasures?

    Excellent piece.
    Our mattress is long overdue being replaced. I’m sure it’s adding to my backache.
