After two months of sleeping on an air mattress, we officially have a brand new real mattress!
I am so freakin’ excited to go to sleep tonight! (And yes, we still need real bedding and bigger pillows. I’m on it!)
Our mattress was delivered late this afternoon and while I was working in my home office, unbeknownst to me, Sadie decided to break it in.
What a total turd.
Luckily we purchased a mattress protector that I immediately put on top of Sadie’s fluff patches before putting our new sheets on the bed.
Sadie doesn’t normally dig, so I don’t know what her deal was with the mattress. I reminded her that she is not a hamster and does not need to make herself a little nest out of fluff.
Random hamster story: When I was
a little girl in high school, I had a pet hamster named Harold. One time my friend Michaela and I went to give him a bath in the sink because we thought he needed a little freshening up.
The craziest squeak/grunt came out of that little guy! Apparently hamsters are not meant to be bathed. To this day, whenever I smell Suave strawberry shampoo, I think of Harold the grunting hamster.
Dinner tonight was a team effort.
Ryan made us burgers on the grill while I roasted butternut squash.
We served our burgers on whole wheat English muffins because we didn’t want to buy a whole pack of hamburger buns for only two burgers. Frugality, my friends.
And now for something FUN!
