The slight hassle in all this is that the foot injury kept me out of the store until today, the last day of their sale. I missed this Tuesdays delivery from Simmons (they only had one of my choice in stock and it had sold already) and next Tuesday is the 4th which brings us to the 11th. The salesmen seemed a little concerned that I may pass on buying because of the long wait at which point I reiterated that my current mattress is 29 years old and I think I can wait. Delivery is currently scheduled for the 13th at which time I will have friends arriving from out of town. :) I'm crossing my fingers they can deliver in the morning, but mom agreed to sit at my apartment in the afternoon if need be. In the meantime, I have two weeks to look for new sheets. I figure I can make do with the existing comforters for the time being, especially since it's summer, and I'm very picky when it comes to buying a comforter. And I have to figure out some logistics. There is a fairly narrow space between my full size bed and the armoire across from it, so the new mattress may have to go sideways against the wall. Heh, maybe this will encourage me to look for a house. ;)
OK, this may be my most boring post ever.
