Our memory foam mattress is probably about 8-10 years old (it was an exchange with a family member so I'm not sure just how old) and it had slowly over time gone from super comfy to not so much anymore. We didn't realize just how terrible it had gotten until we went on our trip to Disney and slept in a good comfortable bed. And then about three weeks ago, I slept wrong and completely messed up my neck and spine. After weeks of working on it, it's *almost* better, but every night sleeping in the bed wasn't helping it either.
Sooooo last Sunday we ordered a mattress, and today it came! And this time we had no problem getting the bed upstairs thanks to a split box spring and a hinged mattress. You might remember, I definitely do, how terrible a time we had getting our old bed into the bedroom when we moved in. This time the movers had it upstairs and ready to go in 10 minutes.
So tonight we get to sleep in a new, supportive, marvelous bed! Definitely something to be thankful for!
