Ahh, a new bed is a good thing...

I finally sprung for the big daddy of all beds - the Tempurpedic Celebrity Bed. I already had one of their original beds, but only in a queen size. My 2 kids have decided they like sleeping with mommy and daddy on occasion (that occasion being every night right now), and frankly I was getting bumped off the bed onto the floor. King size here we come!
Man is this a sweet bed - by far the best I've ever slept in. I tried a Dux Bed and didn't think it was anything special. I blew my shoulder out surfing when I was a kid, and basically had issues on every bed until I tried the tempurpedic. A nice side effect is that if I roll over or get out of bed, no one else notices, except for the rustling of the sheets. This is a good thing as I frequently get up rather early (is 4:30 early?)
Of course, I wouldn't write a blog entry just praising something, or would I? Well, since the goal was to get a wide bed, I ended up buying an Eastern (Standard) king size bed. That's a good thing - Eastern Kings are 76 x 80". Only thing is I live in California. Home of the California King. The CA King is 72 x 84". Guess what? It seems that most people in California buy CA Kings, so almost every store around carries sheets, blankets, etc. for ... California Kings. Great. Super. So I have this killer bed and no sheets. Guess I'm going to be ordering some sheets online.
