Comfort

Sleep has been evasive lately, for the last few months really. This isn't Jaylie's doing although she does contribute. Our mattress is on its last leg so we went looking for a new one. We quickly learned that comfort comes with a dollar sign. But isn't that how it is with everything? Quality=quantity$$. I am just frustrated about everything lately, probably due to lack of sleep, possibly due to lack of privacy as well. Roommates are never EASY to live with, but perhaps less easy when you are married and have children. Or when they are your parents-in-law. *sigh* It really was easier living with siblings, probably because siblings don't care where you are, what you are doing or what you spend your money on. At least we know we are well loved. Ok, I am done venting for now.

Honestly...I don't think it's easy to even be within a 2 mile radius or parents-in-law...Ours don't even live with us, and they want to know where we are, what we're doing, and how we are spending out money..Ugh. I hear ya.

I should have checked up on you more often to see if you were saying your prayers and doing the dishes on time...

I just got your letter in the mail. Thanks you so much! It made my day to have something to laugh about. I love getting letters from you. They are always so fun and NEVER boring!!!! I loved the poem. You are a very talented sister-in-law that I have always looked up to. Love ya!@

I don't know how you put up with it all...I would have lost my mind by now...Hang in there! Is it totally impossible for you guys to rent something? It might be worth the financial sacrifice for your sanity! As for the bed, I hope you find something soon! Have you tried a mattress outlet store? Maybe there are more options up here in Spokane? (Hint Hint...come for a visit)

We just waited for some-one to die and we took her bed. So you could make friends with old people just to inherit a bed. jjk
Living on your own is worth it. You guys are awesome, just keep hanging on!
