You may remember my earlier post about new pillows and how my achy shoulder prompted said purchase. Well, we went bed shopping today and we're quite surprised when we purchased the very first mattress we tried! Not only have we upgraded to the ultra-comfy latex bed, we've also moved on to a California king. Please understand, if you are currently in a queen-sized bed, this kind of jump is pretty dramatic. Twelve inches on the width and four in length and our bed now takes up our entire room! We had to do some fancy squishing with the furniture, and it probably looks a little funny, but oh baby am I looking forward to going to sleep tonight!
On a side note, there is a reason why there was a surplus of California kings at the place we bought our bed. It is nearly impossible to find sheets to fit. I looked at 2 major department stores and finally went to the going out of business sale at Linens N Things. (Holy nightmare - good luck finding someone to ask a question.) I found exactly 2 sets of sheets that would fit, no mattress pad, and several bed-in-a-bag ensembles which have four thousand decorative pillows in them. Bill loves "useless pillows", as he calls them. Ask him about it.
Anyway, I guess we will be shopping online for bedding from now on!
