So, first the mattress was dismantled off the Greensleep deluxe latex organic foam rubber bed upstairs in the house I am moving into. That mattress is too soft for my crooked spine (scoliosis). The dowel spring support had to be moved, but that took the two grown strong men in their prime to move. The foundation comes with 8 legs, two for the middle and 3 on each side, so those were attached. I now have to assemble the mattress, which is quite an art.
But latex foam rubber is wonderful to sleep on. The investment is high, but the mattress will last at least one lifetime if not two. Considering that conventional top of the line mattresses last about 5 yeas and cost several thousand dollars, paying more than double for one that lasts a great deal longer is a good investment. And the sleep is divine. Organic foam rubber, as opposed to synthetic foam rubber made from oil, is made from rubber trees and breathes, as well as allows moisture to move through the mattress. So the sleep is quite heavenly, comfortable and one never overheats. I have a wool mattress topper which aslo helps with supreme comfort and a light wool duvet. The pillows are shredded latex foam rubber from trees as well and after sleeping with one such pillow, I would not ever give it up.
But moving was a whole different story. I am glad that the beds are done. Now, before I sleep, I must make the bed, literally put the mattress back together, then the cotton mattress protector and the wool topper. Organic sheets and the organic wool duvet and then, sleep, oh so heavenly sleep.
I am thankful for Travis and Peter, a very kind and generous young man who volunteered to help out of his own accord. Moving is never fun, but when you have willing help, it is much less stressful.
