Probably part of my back and neck problems is the number of dogs on the bed with me at night… Lucy and Levi have to be on the bed or they get upset. They are, you know, top dogs in the house and have been on the bed for almost 9 years and so that is just the way things are.

I think I’m going to go to Ikea tonight and look for a mattress pad… pillow top. Now I don’t know if those are, just always, softer than mattresses? They have the Sultan Mattresses and pads. I guess I’ll find out. I can’t find anything on the web that has any kind of rating, or review, of pillow top mattress pads to determine if they are softer than the mattress itself.

Hrmph. I feel like crap today and I’m still in pain, though Ibuprophin has helped. Good thing I have life insurance so if my back and neck kill me, my husband and dogs will be fine. :p
