Peaceful Day

Sunday, November 18, 2012

No work today! emoticon I am still waiting to hear about the offer from yesterday, but I had a nice day.

We were going to get my son a new mattress. We always buy our beds from a local mattress store. Turns out we bought his there 6 years ago and it is warranteed for 8 years. So, they are going to come and get it, fix it and return it the same day. Don't need to spend any money on him emoticon

Then I asked what was the normal lifespan of a mattress as I noticed that my back and neck are sore in the mornings. Everything I have read said about 10 years. The guy at the mattress store said between 10 and 12 years. Well, our mattress is 16 years old. emoticon said we need a new mattress. DH said no we don't. I said let's try them out. Ooohhh they were nice. DH liked it so we got one. No interest payments for 18 months we can handle that. They had some really nice pillows too that are supposed to be good for your neck. Had to get those too emoticon

The store was on our way to the barn. So, JC was our next stop. He had just been fed and did not appreciate leaving his meal. He was full of beans. It was a very high calorie burn ride :)

Of course, I can't fail to mention that the Pack Won...GO PACK emoticon

This week I have to work on getting my steps up again. But, at least I got in an 80 minute workout today emoticon

    We got a new mattress last year. Every night still feels like heaven. We learned though that buying a matress is like buying a car. The sticker pice means nothing. We saved a bundle with good negotiating.

    Mattresses are one of those things that seem like they shouldn't matter, in that the financial investment always seems disproportionate, but they make SUCH A DIFFERENCE in one's quality of life. Good for you for getting a new one!
