Ok, my luck lately... Im going to write this again because somehow I erased the last one, so this ones going to be short & sweet :)
I had to share this one... Basically we've been shopping for a bed for awhile now. Our daughter is now in a full size bed, we put our queen in the guest bedroom & now we have a king. By the way after 3 years of marriage we both slept all night without having to wake up saying "move over, your hogging the bed!" (For those of you that don't know my husband, he is 6'5 & sleeps diagonal!!) Then every once in awhile ya get a toddler in there with ya who likes to sleep sideways... Its a pretty eventful night for all!
So today on our final mattress venture, we actually made a purchase (Even though my husband says he hates to shop, he always wants to go & he never wants to buy, so that just means we have to do more shopping!)
So, we get the mattress all loaded up in the truck (let me clarify... He) He loaded & strapped down the mattresses. And we're off, Im so happy, FINALLY, this dreaded bed shopping is half over with! I knew the headboard I wanted, well he decided he didnt want that one, "cant ya just make one" Um no, I paint, I dont build...
That was our little arguement as we're cruising down I-40, when (oh ya, you guessed it) crap! The mattress just blew out of the truck (as he's watching it in the rearview, a semi runs it over) Are you freaking kidding me?!? That did not just happen!! So much for "oh ya, its not going anywhere" when I specifically asked him, "Is it tied down good?"
So, here we are on I-40 (which is a major interstate that goes like halfway across the U.S 4-5 lanes of traffic, hundreds of cars, you get the idea)
Oh & may I also add this was the point when he says..."I told ya we should've had it delivered!" SAY WHAAAAA!! I recall no moment of the words deliver... Ever, Because God forbid we might spend another $10 for delivery?!?
And there is our brand new mattress, on I-40!! Run over by a semi...
Well then we get pulled over, back up somewhat closer to the mattress, he says stay in the car, do not get out! So what else is there to do but take a few pics of this memorable moment...
Oh ya! And even better! He had his camo pants on too, now we really looked classy... No wonder nobody stopped to help -haha!!
Never a dull moment!!
I will say these few things though... A) Thank God no one got hurt, B) the flying mattress didnt cause a wreck & C) the mattress we bought was the cheapest one we could find (of course) and it was run over by a semi, and the only thing wrong with it was a scuff on the corner, not a loose nothing, not a busted spring, just a little road rash (its a Serta by the way)
After all that excitement we needed a nap!
So, that was our weekend, what did you all do??
**(I am in no way getting endorsed by Serta for this... This is all true stuff... I couldn't make this up!)
