Friday March 19, 2010-More Looking Around

I'm afraid not much has been going on the last couple of days. I looked around at various things at the House & Home store on Thursday but didn't see anything exciting.

Today we went looking for mattresses. Talk about ho hum! We haven't bought a new mattress since 1993 as the RV came with one so it's a new experience and I'm finding them very expensive. However it's something we need for sure.

I've gone on a nice walk every morning, in fact, I saw my first robin of this spring this morning.


  1. I'm going through the exact same thing - needing a mattress and springs and going through sticker shock! I let such a good set for for practically nothing over a year ago. At lease I'm borrowing a piece of furniture here and there from my kids, so I don't have to furnish a complete house. This is fum in its own way.

  2. Sherri and I are setting her waiting for the snow...I have got to get out of here soon

  3. I made my own tempurpedic-type mattress for a fraction of the cost. But I put it on plywood to support my bad back. No box springs needed, or wanted.
    First I bought some dense regular foam, then some dense memory foam off eBay.
    Spray-glued the two together, and covered it with non slip fabric.
    I don't get back aches any more.
