Prayers Are Answered....
As you know, I love and adore the Big Guy.

But sharing a bed with him is a new adventure in sharing space.

You know what I mean--taking the blankets so he turns into a human burrito, laying spread eagle on the bed, pushing me over to one side and so on. Don't even get me started about the whole, sleeping-on-his-stomach-while-hugging-a-pillow bit.

I put my foot down a few weeks ago and said, "We need to start looking at King Size beds."

I started to think about it. What was it that was REALLY starting to bother me about this. It dawned on me that when the Big Guy rolls over in bed, I get bounced around and it wakes me up. So, maybe we just need to adjust our bed a little.

While out running errands on Saturday, I picked up my new best friend.

Introducing....the memory foam bed topper.

You, my little investment into NASA technology, are a welcome addition to my life, and I thank the Lord for sending my shopping cart in your direction.

Try fighting a man PLUS 4 dogs for your part of the bed!!!

I was curious how those things worked... sounds like you like it... let me know down the road if it still holds its shape or if its flat as a pancake... that's what I'm curious about - the wear & tear on these things.

We have one of these and I love it! While the bed still moves some when Jeff rolls over, it's still better than before. Enjoy!

How funny, we just got one for our bed too. One of the cheaper kinds, but I figured I wanted to try it out first. Worried about the breathability and if I would get too hot. Slept on it for the first time last night and really liked it. We need it more because our bed is 12 years old (wedding gift) and my back is sometimes sore when I get up. I too wonder how well it will hold up. We will have to compare notes at Thanksgiving.

We just bought a new FIRM king mattress to accomodate me, Hubby the dog and the cat. When we're all in bed together in the winter I'm reminded of a scene in Coal Miner's Daughter.

I'm a fellow Minnesotan who just stumbled across your blog...loved your title!

My husband and I bought a king sized bed when we got married. It was $1100. We have it for 11 years and was that ever the single best purchase we have ever made. BTW...We also have a memory foam topper. There is nothing better than a good night sleep...every night!
