For years now, I've been slowly buying the Winner's Only Mango Furniture Set. I bought the coffee and sofa table well over 5 years ago and have been slowly buying the collection since then. A few years ago, I was able to buy the TV stand and the tall bedroom dresser. Last fall, I added the small end table to my living room. That left me with just the bed frame and end tables. Since the divorce, it has been my goal to buy a new bed.
I've been saving money for a few months, but when I did my taxes, I was able to have enough money after I got my tax return. I really wanted to buy a new mattress at the same time, but that will have to wait for a year or two.
On Monday night, my brother came over and helped me take apart my old bed frame. I was able to sell it on Facebook, but they weren't sure when they could come get it, so I wanted to have it ready for them. That meant sleeping on the floor for a few nights on just my mattress, but I kind of enjoyed it.
On Friday, they delivered and set up my new bed. I also ordered one matching bedside table to go with it.
I also decided to splurge and buy a new bedding set at the same time.
Its been 8 months since the ex moved out, but I can't believe how refreshing it was to sleep on a new bed. It felt like another piece falling into place for my new life. I love that I can say it is my bed. Well, and the cats of course. And hopefully I'll be able to buy a new mattress in the next year and have any traces of the ex completely out of my bedroom.
All the kitties enjoying the new bedding.
