- Perimenopausal hormones, which cause me to be wide awake at all hours of night, lying in a pool of sweat.
- Two adults on a double bed (our situation for the last 30 years) is a recipe for elbow-related bruises and near-concussions.
- Our current mattress is about 8 years old. When it was new it was like sleeping on a cloud. Now it’s like sleeping on a pile of Slinkies.
- Our new and improved, not to mention queen-sized mattress (coincidentally, a BeautyRest) is scheduled to arrive today. I’m pinning my hopes on it for a whole new world of sleep.
