The new king bed arrived yesterday. As I had feared there was not enough room for the bed AND 2 nightstands. One of the nightstands had to go back. There was also quite a bit of re-arranging of the furniture to make everything fit. The mattress is one of the new "hybrids" which are part memory foam and part individually wrapped coils. The result was a pretty darn good sleep. I told Kitty that I definitely didn't want to skimp on a bed since we spend 25-30% of our lives in it. The cats seem to enjoy the extra room as well although one of them STILL found it necessary to plaster him/herself against my head.
