Dear Pillow

Dear Pillow,

I think you need to take a hike.

Signed

Tired in Misery!

Ugh! Try the My Pillow they said. It’s the best they said. Who is this they? I really want to know because I want to tell this they that they are CRAZAY. Holy cow.

I guess Pillows don’t last forever. This one has hardly lasted over a year. It sucks and I have two. They don’t support my head. They are almost like a feather pillow and they didn’t start out that way. Yuck! By the way, I can’t do feather pillows. They don’t give my head any support at all.

If there’s one thing I hate doing, it’s Pillow Shopping. Hate it with a passion. I think the best way to pick a pillow would be to lay down on the floor and try to sleep with it. But that’s part of the problem… have you seen public floors in stores. Yuck! I was annoyed the other day when I lost my balance at Sam’s and fell on the floor when I squatted down. I shuttered.

I might have a slight phobia of germs. Not a bad one, but yuck!

So anyway, back to this sleeping thing… I’m tired. I DID. NOT. sleep well last night. I was up from 1:30 in the morning until around 6. I finally got to sleep and slept until 9. I had that luxury this morning. Not everyone did. That everyone I’m referring to is my husband. And gosh I feel terrible for him. Part of the problem is we had a very upset little girl. She must have been having nightmares. She kicked and tossed and turned and cried and and and. At one point I asked her why she was crying and she told me she wanted it to be morning. It was about 2:15.

She talked in her sleep all night long. I’m not sure she really slept well… but because of that, we didn’t sleep well either. I don’t sleep well when she doesn’t sleep well. I toss and turn and check on her often. I’m tired.

But my pillows, they suck. I actually found one at Bed Bath and Beyond the other day that I might be interested in trying, but again, how will I know if it works or not. A friend of mine told me the cool thing about BB&B is that you can buy pillows, take them home, try them, you don’t like them take the back. You could try every pillow in the store. But then there’s the hassle of taking them back. Taking things back really is a hassle. I don’t want them to totally recognize me as the girl who brings everything back.

Yes, I worry about things like that.

I finally got to sleep around 6 or so this morning. Little girl calmed down finally. Gosh, I’m tired! I can only imagine how my poor hubby feels. I’m sorry! I woke up this morning realizing I was dreaming about shoe shopping at Payless. haha. When I went to bed last night, there was a commercial on tv for Payless and a cute pair of shoes popped up. I interrupted our conversation to point them out although I know hubby didn’t see them nor did he care. But I woke up dreaming about shoe shopping at Payless. In my dream it was BOGO. If it really is or not who knows.

Maybe that’s what the commercial was discussing, I don’t know. We were talking… I wasn’t paying attention. I just had one of those “ooo ball” moments. I think I annoyed him with that. I was tired when we went to bed last night. Imagine how I was after no sleep last night. I feel like I’ve been run over by a freight train. They backed up, ran over me again, and then left me to clean up the mess.

Okay, So I’ll quit complaining. I’ll get up and start my day. And I just might go pillow shopping. Ugh! Such a daunting task. Just like shoe shopping and clothes shopping!

Happy Tuesday!

One thought on “Dear Pillow

  1. I have such an issue with pillows. My problem though is that I prefer a flatter pillow, and so many of them now are big and fluffy. Pillows in hotel rooms are awful. I always wake up with a crick in my neck when I’m away from home without my own flat pillow. And you’re right…how do you know without testing them if you like them or not? Such an ordeal to find a good pillow!
    I have been using mine for way too long, I think you’re supposed to get new pillows once a year or something like that but I’ve had mine for many years because I’m afraid of never finding another one like it lol.
    I hope you have a better night’s sleep tonight!
