Our mattress sucks.
This is not news. I have been complaining about our mattress - and therefore my bad back - since I first started laying on it consistently more than 10 years ago.
We came close to getting a new mattress, but then I had to buy a new-to-me car and there went the possibility of a comfortable sleep.
For the past year or so I hadn’t noticed how bad our mattress was.
Then our son slept eight hours in a row, two days in a row, and I realized something.
It wasn’t that our mattress had miraculously fixed itself or I had finally gotten used to it.
Rather for the past 15 months, I really wasn’t sleeping in the bed. I was merely resting there for a couple of hours at a time. And for that type of sleep, our mattress is wonderful.
For a night’s rest, not so great.
