MERRY MONDAY - Mattress Toppers - and Mirror Surrender

Today is that first day following the weekend. Up and At 'Em! Go out and be a blessing to someone today...really all you have to do is hand out smiles. Give your facial muscles a WORKOUT!

Makes me smile just thinking about it. :-)

I am trying something new. I purchased a Memory Foam Mattress Topper instead of getting a whole new mattress set. In one of our guest rooms there is a full size bed. I did NOT want to spend money on a new Double mattress, as it will be slept on very little. (they are Expensive!!!) I just wanted something a little more comfortable for guests. Kurt suggested one of these Toppers and I found one at Sam's Club.

With Kurt being sick recently, I had ventured into the guest room for sleep one night and.... ARGH!!! NO WAY! The NON pillow-top mattress was a Beast! *That was what prompted me to do something for the comfort of any visitor.

I lay down on this topper and it was oh-so-nice...Now, the real test will be when Justin comes to visit, and how it feels to him...even though I know a Marine can sleep anywhere...(He slept on the back seat of a HumVee last time they were out in the field training and a monsoon hit Jacksonville one night.)

I'll let you know....if any of you are thinking about a Topper as opposed to a HEFTY investment into a new mattress set.


I have to 'fess up that age is creeping in on me, and my eyesight is going, going...sigh...
I finally got FED UP!...sick and tired of trying to tweeze my brows and instead of getting the brow hair I was grabbing SKIN! shriek!! I broke down and went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and purchased one of these.

Girls....That shiny piece of glass magnifies so well I don't think I'll ever pinch my face with tweezers again...well - until I get the shakes..goodness....getting older isn't easy now is it???

The one down side of that mirror? It reveals a lot of stuff I didn't ever want to see...argh!

Where did all those wrinkles come from? ....SIGH...

Here's hoping all of you have a wonderful day. Remember the quote from Mark Twain:

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.


Something very exciting and a long time coming is happening for Kam today. I shall blog/journal about it tomorrow! I am so happy for him. He has been a trooper through all of the changes that have happened in his life and endured lots of tough transitions, and been on a diligent and patient search, and mama has been praying fervently...My sweet, roll-with-the-punches youngest son is getting a prayer answered.

Hugs to all my dear bloggy sisters wherever you are. I am smiling at you! :-)

Hugs and smiles back to you this morning dear Julie! I have the old age eye issues too and it isn't fun BUT I will deal with it:) Can't wait to hear the news about your handsome Son!

I just bought a blow-up bed for the Grandkids to sleep on and it has a memory foam top on it! It is very comfy! Hope yours will do the trick:)

Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

I love that quote but didn't know it was from Mark Twain. Another one I like is, "Getting old ain't for sissies." Don't know who said it. Kam is so handsome. Can't wait for the good news. Yes, do let us know how the topper works out. We may need to get one soon.
Hugs back!

Love & hugs to you!

Haha, I just had to laugh about your thoughts on the magnified part of the mirror. And for goodness sakes I have learned to never look down into the mirror...hold it up high and let it look down on you; that alone is worth smiling about!! xoxo ~Lili
