Confessions of a Soon-to-be Sleep Number Bed User

Wow — so much going on. We were planning on taking care of Karl’s mother today as she was scheduled for a medical procedure, but the equipment needed to perform the procedure broke — so she has been rescheduled. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. I am confident all will be OK.

We also closed on the sell of our Salem condo today. When you sell in Massachusetts, there are far less papers to sign — but we got to sit with our buyer as he signed all of his. So, it didn’t much matter.

Oh! And we finally broke down and decided to make the big step and replace our bed with one of those Select Comfort beds — you know, the ones that the Bionic Woman sells on late night TV-infomercial? Anyway, we ordered our bed after trying out a number of models. No wonder Karl and I have always disagreed on which bed to purchase. He is a #75 Sleep Member while I am a #35! Actually, he was even comfortable at #100 and I was fine at #25.

The most tragic thing is that we will not receive our special bed for another 3 weeks. Also, Karl drew the line and refused to let me get all the “bells and whistles” — you know, vibration and movement of the bed itself. However, Karl has pledged to start giving me massages. I intend to hold him to this commitment.

We also got the ball rolling on selling the car today. We just have to pay off the Harvard University Credit Union to secure the title and then we sell my wheels back to the dealership from which they originally came. Sigh.

At any rate, Karl’s mother’s canceled procedure allowed us a great deal of extra time to get things done. Tomorrow we finish up the sell of the car and other misc. things.

I feel so complete now that I am a member of the Select Comfort Bed community. I share more than just good looks with David Arquette. …He is also a member! Exciting stuff, kids.

Oh, and I think I may be in love with Andre 3000, but that is a whole other blog.
