Word to the wise....

IF you find yourself with the opportunity to sleep in one of those beds that allow you to choose a 'number' that is comfortable for you (perhaps because your 17 month old is in the hospital and you are staying at the Ronald McDonalad house so your 4 1/2 yr old could come too)....

AND IF you are so very tired that you are tempted to just fall into bed without checking what setting the inflatable mattress is on...

DON'T succumb to that temptation.

Because the bed "firmness" setting just might have been left on 100 which would be the highest setting and feel much like sleeping on the floor, except for it being, you know, less ... springy than the floor.

And then you might not sleep so good.

I have never tried one of those number beds myself, but I hear they are not nearly as wonderful as the cheesy ads make them out to be!

Ahem, I believe it might not be very comfortable sleeping on a brick!

Hugs darling.

We slept on these mattresses for almost a month in January/Febrary, and once the novelty wore off I was ready for a regular matress. Even a cheap one.

Even when I had found a setting that was comfortable for sleeping, it was much like a water bed. Someone sitting down to put on his shoes or talk a minute would nearly launch you off the bed.

And one side of our queen-size had a tendency to leak almost flat over the course of the a night. Not so comfy.

So, fun for a place like RMH, but I wouldn't want to own one!
