Sleep is the little death that brings total oblivion

Installed my new-ish mattress and box spring today. They're fairly nice, and at least a bit less worn out than my old mattress.

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the box spring. I've got a mates bed (and a rather crappy one at that) so the combination makes things a bit on the tall side. I've also discovered that I'm going to need a new set of fitted sheets, as I don't think any of the ones I currently have will fit properly.

I took some pictures for your viewing pleasure. I look like a bit of a slob in the last one, but I was just taking the picture for a height comparison.

Edit: Yeah, I got rid of the box spring, it was just a bit too tall. I'm glad I tried it, though.

What you need is a bunkie board. (I have no idea how it's actually spelled. It's a supportive box-spring-replacement for use in things like bunk beds and other beds that you don't use box springs with.)

I think it should be fine as-is until I can just throw out the whole bed and buy a new one.
