... at least not after next week...
We have been talking about getting a new mattress for our bed, but debated about whether to wait until we renovated the bedroom. (which we weren't planning to do until after the living room and the kitchen had been done!)
Well, after 3 days straight of waking up with tremendous back pain, I decided enough was enough and I went to order a new mattress today. It just so happens the store was having a sale! Great timing! So I got a better quality mattress for a lower price.... I just have to wait til next week to get it because they didn't have any left in stock.
And I bought this:
It's a storage ottoman/coffee table. Each of the 4 sections flip over to be either a cushion or a tray. I debated about this because of my traditional style but in the end I was won over by the fact that this is much needed storage and that I can sit on my couch the way it is intended to be sat on, and still have my feet up while I'm on the laptop.
And best of all.... it was on sale.
And then they knocked off even more because we (my friend and I) left the store to compare the price at another nearby store and came back. In the end, I paid close to the original sale price thanks to all the lovely taxes (note the sarcasm!), but still I think it was worth it to get me closer to getting this living room done as I promised my husband I would finish.
I may be going for broke, but I won't loose any sleep over these purchases. No, Siree Bob, I won't. In fact, I will gain more luxurious slumber! I can hardly wait!
*update* The ottoman will be delivered tomorrow! So excited!!
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
