(no subject)

The new mattress was delivered yesterday, so last night was the first night on it.

It's really, really tall.  I thought our previous mattress was excessive in this regard.  In retrospect, it was fairly sedate.  There's now about a six inch drop from the top of the mattress to my bedside table.

So that's going to take some getting used to.

On the other hand, it's really comfortable, so I think we'll adapt pretty quickly.

I am rather amused to realize that my first bed when I moved away from home was basically some eggshell foam on the floor, followed by a mattress (sans box springs) on the floor, followed by a steady progression of slightly better, and inevitably taller sleeping arrangements.  At this rate, by the time I'm 70, I'll be sleeping on the roof.
