... is not the most comfortable of creations.
For my first two weeks here, I slept in a crater that was wreaking havoc on my SI joints. It's one of those lovely little IKEA-style mattresses that must just be cotton balls stuffed inside heavy canvas.
So I spent way too much money buying way too many red fleece blankets to help even out the mattress.
I also bought this awesome (and also way expensive -lame!) heating pad that's practically the size of my whole back (as pictured below in the middle of my bed).
Last night was the trial run, and I think both of these DIY-changes helped quite a bit. We'll see how tonight goes. I still miss my body pillow, though. Not sure where I can find one of those here (or if I even dare cart it around on the Metro with me).
Ahhh... my room. It's big, yeah? I'll post more pics of the apartment sometime this week. That will include a better glimpse into my room when all of my bedding isn't draped ove the back of my "office" chair.
