My husband and I have a sleep number bed.
Don’t worry I’m not about to go t.m.i. on you.
Here’s the thing though – I am decision-making challenged and EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. right before I go to sleep I have to make one of the most important decisions of my life! Am I a 25? or a 45? or a 100? or a 30? Thank the Lord they only offer you 5 point increments because I think I would never get to sleep if I actually had the choice of any number between 1 and 100.
I know what those of you who told us we would love this bed are thinking. ‘You’ll figure it out and you’ll love it.’ Um. We’ve had this bed for at least 3 years now. During that time I have gone through periods that this has not presented a challenge for me but I think I could’ve slept on a rock during those times and the reason you buy an expensive bed is for the times you have more trouble sleeping, right?
Lately I have decided that I am a 25. And maybe I am. Maybe it’s the 12 pound puppy that insists on curling up right in the small of my back every night that is hurting me. Just in case you think that is ridiculous, let me remind you of how cute he is:
See? And not only that but he is hopelessly spoiled and if we put him in his crate he will cry all night which doesn’t help the problem. And not only that but he warms my feet up for me before I go to sleep. He doesn’t move into stealthy back deformer position until I am asleep. And not only that but he snuggles with me in the morning and licks my face. And not only that but . . . it’s just too many decisions at bed time. Big decisions.
Wade, ever the decisive one, has solved the problem on his side by being a 100. This makes no sense to me. Isn’t that just a firm mattress with a pillow top? That also brings up another issue. If I am a 25 and he is a 100, which totally makes sense if you know us, then there is no sleeping on each other’s side of this huge king size bed. It’s like having two twin beds, which may sound good to those of you who haven’t broken down and purchased one of these things but comes with its own set of issues.
Anyway. Pray for me. I have a big decision to make in just a few hours. And my back hurts just thinking about it.
