Out With the Old – In With the New

March 25 2021

I’m more excited about this than I expected. The first two pieces of my new bed arrived today. Pillows, mattress, and platform frame coming next week. 🎉🎉🎉

I bought a queen size tempurpedic when I was pregnant with Thomas. 15 years ago. It’s just me, and has been only me, sleeping in it for 14 years. I don’t need that much room. 😂

I have lugged that darn thing with us for 15 years. I’ve wanted to downsize to a full size bed for 6 years. Handling and moving a queen size tempurpedic is like trying to move a 500 pound block of jello. 😳

It’s still in near perfect condition, so if anyone in the area needs a bed, it’s yours. ❤️❤️❤️

This afternoon I bid farewell to the bed I’ve slept on for the past 15 years. It’s got a new job, providing a good nights sleep for folks who are mending their life at The Ridgehouse.

15 years may seem like end of life for a mattress. Not this sucker. Those tempurpedic mattresses never die! I’m sure it’s got another 15 years! I’m happy to be downsizing to a full size vegan, organic, hybrid (which hasn’t arrived yet!) Air mattress sleeping for me until it arrives. 🛌 😴 💤

The bed frame arrived. The sheets arrived week before last. Now. Just need the mattress and pillow. Fingers crossed that the mattress ships tomorrow. 🎉🎉🎉😴😴😴🎉🎉🎉

I did it! And, it was fun! 🎉 The platform frame is put together, ready for the mattress (arriving today), and ready for this person to have a comfy nights sleep.

Finished! Need different pillows and bedspread as these are Lillian’s. I. Am. Tired. I shall sleep good tonight. Thank you to my sweet Thomas for helping me get this beast of a mattress up the stairs. Whew!

It’s totally normal that every time I use my new pillow, I’m thinking, “I loooove you pillow, you’re so comfy”. Right?

… And my new bed …. They are just the best!!

When it’s been 15 years since one has been in a relationship, much less even dated, having a comfy bed, pillow, and bedding it quite titillating …

From No Bed to Plush Bed – New Bed for Thomas

October 15 2020

This is what I will attempt tomorrow. Thomas has not had a bed since 2015. By choice to begin with, as he wanted to try Japanese floor bed style. Then later, I simply was not financially able to get one.

Since moving into our new place (November 2019), he’s been sleeping on an air bed. If all goes well tomorrow, he will sleep in a brand new cushy bed tomorrow night, plush style with a new platform frame, new mattress, new sheets, and a new pillow. My patience evades me when putting things like this together. Pray for me …

I did it! The new pillow hasn’t arrived yet so that’s the last piece, along with a new comforter as it gets cooler. Tomorrow we’ll get the nightstand moved next to the bed and move the books to another spot. 🎉🎉🎉

I’m excited for Thomas. He deserves this! Having gone 5 years without a bed, never having a brand new one. I went all out. Organic and vegan … everything, plus eco-friendly and non-toxic. None of us can handle toxic fumes.
