G-man woke up in a FOUL mood. He was stomping around, throwing things in the sink and onto the counter. Yelling at the kids for nothing. Childish would be an understatement. And this isn't the first time this has happened.
I pulled him into the other room to talk, and he was pissy with me. He was TIRED, and his back HURT. OK, so I have been hearing this for YEARS. He blamed our mattress. So we switched out the mattress we were using for the one that used to be in the guest bedroom (which had minimal usage on it). And that quieted the matter for a bit. And then it started up again. We bought a topper. And it quieted again. But not for long.
If you don't count the minimal use that the mattress had before we switched them out, this mattress is about 3-4 years old. It wasn't super high quality when we bought it, but it wasn't super cheap either. I would say it was around a 6.5/10.
I have refused to get a new mattress for a few reasons:
- The expense
- We totally disagree on what to look for in a mattress
- And....until our marriage was better....a new mattress stood for more commitment than I was willing to give
Yes, he pouted.
We have $500 built into the budget for something...but we are a long way off from saving that. I am not going to dip into EF. I am not going to scrape together all the extra stuff from various places.
What would you do?
