We've been staying with my mother for the past few days, and last month we stayed with various friends.
It has been a sort of fun, temporary existence, BUT the thing that has struck us the most about every place we've stayed is how terribly soft so many of the beds are. We've lately caught ourselves thinking, "Soft beds are awful; don't people know this?" They don't support you and you wake up in the morning with a sore back. If you are pregnant you can barely sleep at all.
While a "soft" bed sounds like a good idea and can feel great when you first lie down, it simply doesn't work for a night's sleep. We now believe that beds should always be firm, which got us thinking...
As with mattresses, we are given WAY too much choice. There are some things in the world that should always be firm and some that should always be soft. No decisions needed!
So we thought we'd start a list. We invite your additions.
