Bad bed

Both of our bed mattresses are around 13 years old (Diana's is in our guest room). While hers sags in the middle, making it difficult for two people to sleep in, mine is plagued by uneven springs that make funny noises when you roll around.

The outcome of this bed tragedy is that we're both waking up with funny aches and pains all of the time. It's particularly bad for her given the previous vertigo-induced string of neck and shoulder pains.

So between the honeymoon and carpet debt, I'm obviously in no hurry to shell out for a bed, but as soon as Diana pays off the debt she incurred for the wedding, she vows to buy a new mattress. I feel bad because I'm used to being the provider, and if I were making day job money I'd just run right out and we'd buy one.

Go for the Tempur-Pedic. I know they cost more, but after having one for two years I still look forward climbing into it at the end of the day.

Ugh, we tried one out at the store awhile back and hated how it felt. Maybe we just don't get it, but we were not at all interested.

The thing with the tempur-pedic that bothered me is that once you got into a position it seemed almost impossible to turn over into a new position. That's what I didn't like about it.

It does take some getting used to. I remember the first couple nights it felt a little "off."
