I bought a new pillow last night, for $6.99 at JC Penney (hey, I just can’t afford a twenty-five dollar pillow right now), and it has changed my life. Yes, I now understand that proper bedding can make all the difference in one’s life. I had three weeks of horrid sleep where I couldn’t get comfortable and couldn’t get my pillows just right. I decided to replace “Old Smushy” yesterday, just because I was willing to try anything. Voila. I slept like a baby last night. First time in three WEEKS I didn’t wake up in the middle of the night at about 1 or 2 am, only to not be able to get comfy and fall back to sleep for 40-60 minutes. I am so HAPPY today. I can’t wait to go back to sleep tonight!
Next up: Replace the mattress and the bed frame. The bed frame squeeks and I hate it. HATE IT. I am ready to just put the boxspring and mattress on the floor. The only thing stopping me is how HEAVY the damned things are.
