Our new mattress arrived yesterday morning!
I have been on a futon for about 10 years. I don’t like soft squishy beds, and I hate when you can feel someone else move on a springy mattress. But my futon was getting really uncomfortable, so it was time to graduate and get a grown-up bed.
It’s a firm mattress with a pillow top. IT IS HUGE!!!!!!! Like really super big!!! The futon was really low-profile and this monster is SUPER TALL. Bibi can’t really get on and off of it, and I will miss my morning puppy snuggles until we figure out a new arrangement upstairs in the loft.
Today we popped into a few stores to check out bed frames. We really liked some at this one store in our neighborhood, but they only came in queen sizes, and our mattress is a full. I hope hope HOPE we do not run into this problem over and over again. I really don’t like the look of plain wooden bed frames and I hope we still have choices! We’ll see!!
Here’s a pic of my yarn stash that somebody requested. Of course, the stash is changing all the time, but there’s the general set up.
Since this pic when I first moved into this loft last year, we’ve had to put a small fence around the yarn because Bibi has begun to pull it off shelves and mess with it. If you’ve ever seen the movie “The Ugly Dachshund and you recall the yarn scene…..our house has ended up that way a few times before we had to gate off the goods!
Today I hope to finish up a Valentine’s day scarf and maybe go see Revolutionary Road.
