why I will never own a tempurpedic mattress!
We switched it out and waited expectantly for bed time to roll around. My initial thoughts upon laying on it were that it was extremely hard and I felt kind of like I was laying on plywood. I determined to keep an open mind and told Tim that maybe I would end up having the best sleep of my life. We rolled over and, by sheer exhaustion, fell asleep quickly.
*Cue the ominous background music*
To say that I had a bad night of sleep is an understatement. Jesse had told us that the ads say you can put a glass of wine on the bed and jump on it and the wine won't spill. Tim mentioned that again this morning and I reminded him that the same thing could be said for a glass of wine sitting on the sidewalk. Doesn't mean I want to stretch out and spend the night there.
The only time I have ever wakened as sweaty during the night was right after having a baby when I would experience hormonal night sweats. I got up to pee at one point and was drenched!! My shoulder, which I still have terrible trouble with, hurt like crazy and is very painful this morning. Where normally I feel like I somewhat sink into our tempurpedic topper and mattress, last night I felt that I spent the night literally balancing on plywood. I, on more than one occasion, considered just going out to sleep on the leather couch in the living room because anything had to be better than this!!
I kept thinking, "If Tim wakes up and says he had the best sleep ever...I am screwed!" He got up around 4am and I tried, to no avail, to go back to sleep. Finally I got up and worked on my Bible study and hoped my coffee would work magic. When Tim came back upstairs he asked me how I slept. I decided to be straight up and told him I might have a nervous breakdown if I had to sleep on that mattress again.
With fear and trepidation...I asked him how he slept!
To my relief he said it was the worst night he ever had and, on more than one occasion, he thought that the couch would surely be a better option. I almost cried in relief that he didn't fall in love with it. As soon as he gets home later this afternoon he and Benji will switch it out with our old mattress and topper and it may be a race to see which one of us is in the bed first!
I realize some of you may have one of these mattresses and love it so please do not be offended by my rant! We are all wired differently and what sleeps well for one may not translate into a good night's sleep for another. What really stinks about this whole scenario is that Tim and I have a very rare date night scheduled for tonight.
Looks like we'll be hitting our local Starbucks for a bold roast IV drip! *Yawn*
