The quest for sleep  
G is trying out a purple mattress right now. We've decided that instead of a king, we're going to try two twinXL mattresses and that way we can each find what works best for us. But because of that, I'm currently sleeping on the old king on the floor.1

Now here's why the post. Just putting the king on the floor has caused me to wake up in more pain. Since we have a platform bed, this isn't the lost of a box spring, so either it's something about the physical elevation (maybe colder on the floor) or something psychological or something I'm not figuring out. It might be that we've worked hard recently to cut the light out for G, and I'm not waking up as smoothly because of it and it's just now catching up with me.

Most animals sleep and I think all mammals sleep and we get very messed up when we don't sleep, so I don't quite understand why it's so hard to get a good nights sleep when you are in a safe place on a soft thing designed for sleep.

1 The plan is G will try the purple, then decide if he's keeping it or not, then I will try the purple and then decide if I like it or not, so it will be a while before we both have a twin XL something that we're trying out. G right now is leaning towards keeping the purple, so that's at least something.

Buying mattresses is up there on my top list of things I hate doing. I find it even more annoying than car shopping.

I'm intrigued by the whole explosion of compressed internet mattress sales, since our current bed is a solid latex mattress and we've been mostly happy with it (but it's starting to show its age). They all offer extended tests and money-back guarantees, but the ingrained social bargaining part of my brain doesn't want to have to take them up on the offer....
