As it turns out, Jeff’s been having the same sleep issues as I have. We sleeps fine when he’s in his hotel all week but has trouble when he comes home on the weekends, just as I do. We both believe it’s the bed.
So I did a little research on Friday.
A side note: Did you know you can buy mattresses on Amazon? AND THEY ARE REASONABLY PRICED? I legit thought we were going to have to spend three grand on a new bed AND go to a furniture store to try it all out. But apparently in 11 years the internet has become a viable channel for the purchasing of bed frames and mattresses.
After a particularly bad night of sleep for both of us Friday night, over coffee on Saturday morning, we went ahead and bought a new memory foam mattress from Amazon which was highly rated by a number of websites. Because we currently sleep on a traditional bed with a boxspring, we needed a new frame as well, so I found a platform frame on Wayfair that was on sale.
Both were WAY less expensive than I expected.
Both are being delivered tomorrow.
The internet totally rocks.
In the meantime, this weekend, Jeff took down our frame and headboard and put our old mattress on the floor. I feel like I’m in college again – sleeping on the floor WHEEEEEE! – but I have to be honest: the past two nights I’ve felt a lot less movement and have slept pretty well.
So I have high hopes for my sleep in the coming weeks.
