The New Bed is Coming! The New Bed is Coming!

Yeah, I know. I said that back in February but now it is really, really TRUE! I went to the mattress place today and paid the balance and set a delivery time up for tomorrow!! I'm so totally excited!!!

We thought that we were going to have to give up the dream of a new bed after we faced my unemployment and also, the feds just happened to give us $600 less in our refund - which was the exact amount of the bed. Go figure. So we huffed and we whined and we complained every morning with our sore back and all that and were resigned and defeated.

Brace yourselves for a little TMI...

Last night I am in bed and I start itching. Not just a little, but a lot. I get up, I turn on a light and I have welts up and down my arms! Now I'm freaked out. So I go out in to the living room, near tears, and show Frank. He goes in to the bedroom and what do we see?

A bedbug!

A little, creepy, crawly bedbug!!

I have no idea where it came from but I am telling you what, he was not long for this world! Needless to say I did NOT go back to sleep and today I practically RAN to the mattress store to put the order through. Tonight I have been cleaning, vacuuming, disinfecting, you name it, I'm doing it! I still don't want to sleep in the bed tonight but I've got mattress bags on the mattress and box spring and I have sprayed the whole thing with an insecticide. It did NOT smell good.

Hopefully tonight will be the last of it. First thing in the morning, we are tossing out the old mattresses and totally going wild with spraying and vacuuming the room again.

It's not easy being me, people. It really, really isn't.

OMG, I would freak out as well. I've heard that they are increasing in numbers and prevalent in 5 star hotels. Scary.
