New mattress delivered today

I decided that after over 25 years, it was time to get a new mattress. There were about five years along the way when it wasn't used much since when I was married, we got a new mattress and mine was put in the guest room. I have never been a good sleeper and I realized that I slept best when I was married and had always thought that it was because I was married and had that relationship going. But it occurred to me as I was walking out of the store after buying the mattress that maybe I slept better when I was married not because I was married but because I was sleeping on a different mattress. I sleep on my side and these days it is recommended that you sleep on a soft mattress if you sleep on your side. Well my old mattress is very firm and that could be why I didn't sleep well. So starting tonight I will begin to find out if I sleep better with a little softer mattress.

Our mattress is a good cross between being soft and firm. I think it also have a good support on the back. But my husband hates it and he thinks it is not thick enough. I tried to find another one that is just exactly like how he wants it. But no luck. He would bi#ch to me about it whenever we argue, like in the middle of a totally unrelated thing he will blurt out the mattress. If we're not arguing it would have been funny. Finally the mattress issue was fixed and all is okay and we get to sleep more peacefully. I know it's totally unrelated somehow but reading your post just made me remember that funny and irritating moment.

wow thats pretty impressive to have the same mattress for 25 years but i bet that it was knackered at the when you through it away. When you get a new matress its so nice and its so much better for your back i think that you may find that it will improve your sleep pattern a lot.
