New Bed

Yesterday I bought a metal bed frame at Goodwill for five dollars. This means that the mattress and box spring provided by my landlords no longer have to sit on the floor, which will make me feel more like a real person as opposed to a poor college student. I also bought twin-size flat and fitted sheets for $1.50 each; these will replace the queen-size sheets I've been using on my twin-size bed, which will also make me feel more like a real person. I also raided the supply of various and sundry used bed parts in the house above me and traded my springy box spring for a springless wooden base. The first time I sat down on my less-than-firm mattress atop those old and lifeless springs, I felt like I was out at sea and knew that I would need to make a change; after two weeks of wavy sleep I finally took the opportunity yesterday to make that change.

I haven't tried out my new bed yet because S-Boogie and Little Dude get the bedroom when they're over and I'd rather sleep on the couch than try to sleep in the same room as S-Boogie, who talks and cries and sings in her sleep. Tonight, though, I will sleep in my new bed. I'm looking forward to it.

I love good beds. Last weekend I was in a hotel with the best bed I've ever slept in in my life. [Mmmmm... reveling in memory...] But our current bed is a pretty remarkable Goodwill find as well. Thank goodness for thrift stores!

And now I'm going to go eat something with avocado because your blog makes me hungry for avocado every time I visit.

I miss my bed deeply. It's in storage. And may continue to be so for years. *weeps*
