Don't You Just Hate Waiting for a Delivery?

On Saturday we went to Job Lot and picked a new Serta Mattress for our bed here in Florida. The old mattress came with the house when we bought it. While I liked the mattress, it was too soft for Al, with the Parkinson's he has difficulting rolling over in bed if the mattress is too soft. We tried out a few beds there and decided on the one that would allow both of us to sleep well. With the arthritis in my shoulders, I need at least a little padding to sleep on my side. They told us the mattress would be delivered on Tuesday and since we live 2 miles from the store it probably would be early in the day. We also had to pay $59 for the delivery. At 10 a.m. yesterday I got a call telling me delivery would be between 11:30 and 1:30. Don't you love a 2-hour window? At 2 p.m. I got a call saying they were on their way, at 2:30 I got a call that they were stuck in traffic. At 3 p.m. they arrived. Basically my entire day yesterday was spent waiting for that darn mattress. But, after my first good night's sleep on it, I think it might just have been worth the wait. It is a little firm for me and I wish it had a little more padding on the top but I do feel rested and Al had a lot less trouble rolling over so it was worth the wait.

All good things are worth the wait. Our new furniture, in CT, arrived on the dot. It's amazing how they contact you these days and have become so much more accurate. I hope you both get many more restful nights with your new mattress, Iz.
The last couple of furniture deliveries we have had were right on time. But waiting like that, for most of the day, would be a bit of a downer for me as well. Hopefully tonight's sleep will be an improvement and you'll be happier with your choice.
