A New Year, A New Bed

It is officially 2012.  How did you spend your New Year's Eve / Day?  Ours was spent quite nicely.  For New Year's Eve, we did two very special things.  First, we celebrated the marriage of two of our friends.  It's the first time I've been to a wedding on New Year's Eve, and it was a lot of fun.  As an added bonus, the bride was from MN, so one of the treats at the reception was lefse.  Hans was thrilled, and both of us had way more than we should have.  If you're not sure what lefse is, I highly recommend you check out this link.

The next thing Hans and I did, though, is one that will affect us throughout the year.  We spent the first night in our brand new bed!  I can't believe what a difference it made sleep-wise.  I had a lot more room to move which means I didn't wake up whenever I wanted to roll over.  On top of that, this bed, while quite similar to our old one, was designed a bit differently, so things that were problematic in our old bed are no longer problematic. 

Anyway, I got an amazing night's sleep, but what's even nicer is that Hans got an amazing night's sleep.  This, of course, means I don't have to deal with a tired, grouchy Hans.  Life is much better this way.  :)

I am hoping that this new bed will also mean some other changes in my life.  Maybe with better sleep I'll be more productive.  Maybe waking up to work out won't be so difficult.   Maybe I won't get so stressed out so easily.  Maybe things will improve overall.  Maybe.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, our new bed is a Sleep Number.  I've had one since I was 13, and I love them.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
