The other day our friend had purchased one and absolutely loved it and gave it such rave reviews, so I purchased one, instead of us having to buy a new mattress. Yesterday afternoon when I tracked it, it estimated the delivery time for today or Monday. In hopes that it would be here sooner than later, Tone and I spent thirty minutes yesterday getting our bed-ready and waiting.
Since our cedar bed, that Tony made for us when we got married, sits high off of the ground we realized that adding the three inch blue mattress topper would make it more difficult or impossible for me and our dogs to get on it. So, we removed the boxed springs from it. Then we carried it outside to the barn. Then Tony cut two sheets of thick plywood to fit the frame and fastened them on top of the bed slats.
When we put our mattress back on the bed, to make sure it wasn't too low—I loved the new lower height and was thrilled about it. After I put the linens back on it I half-hollered for our dogs and invited them to jump up on our new low-rider bed. But, before they gave it their bed test approval, they walked around it as if they were trying to figure out why it was ten inches shorter.
Roy jumped up on it first, followed by Mama, Belle, Abbie, Beau and me. And all of us loved our new bed so much, we decided to take a short nap. Twenty minutes later, when Tony walked into our bedroom and saw us snuggled up together he laughed and said, "That new mattress topper will be so good for Mama's arthritis and my back. I can't wait until it gets here..."
