I’ve done it folks! I think I have discovered the worst bed in Arizona.
This trip to Arizona hasn’t exactly been a relaxing one. As you may have read in a recent post, dividing time between two parts of your family who haven’t seen you (in person) for at least a year is a challenge to say the least. On top of that, they both want you to stay with them so they get a little time with you while the other part of the family isn’t around.
We started out at my sister-in-law’s house. Big, spacious, and pretty much a space that was just for us in the downstairs portion of the house. All the amenities and most importantly, a bed that was comfortable. Sure, it wasn’t home, but it was at least as good as a hotel.
Now, we are at my in-laws and they have a hide-a-bed to sleep on. This is the first time I have been to their place since they moved down here so I didn’t know what was in store for me. When I walked into the room and saw it folded out I knew I was in trouble. I could already see from the mattress that there was a curve in it and “the middle” would become a dreaded sleeping space. There isn’t the usual bar to sleep on, so there is that. But, the bed is too soft and the pillows too flat. It is killing my back and my neck. The neck issues I am having are now only amplified, which means ibuprofen every day and an unplanned trip to the chiropractor when I get home.
Sleep has been tough to come by.
So, if ever in AZ, don’t stay at my in-laws. You have been duly warned.
When I visit anyone, I avoid sleeping at their home. For the most part, I don’t have any qualms about sleeping in a hotel or motel room. Most give you a firm mattress, which is what I prefer. I need my private space.
I would say a hotel is a fairly good option when the people you visit are not family. However, you know how families are…they are offended if you don’t take their generosity and stay with them. Thus, crash and back problems are a must. LOL
