Pillows

For the last couple of, well, years, we have slept on pillows that pretty much resemble pancakes. In fact, we stuffed two of them into each pillowcase (so sleeping on *four* pancakes pillows, and, in my case, turned them on their sides. I sleep on my side plus I have to have my head somewhat elevated or I can't breathe. I have seriously thought about getting a wedge to sleep on. Any of you do that?

I know pillows have a short lifespan. jonbaker even asked a hotel chambermaid once how the hotels keep their pillows so firm and comfortable. She told him they replace them every few months.

So, as a welcome home present to my husband, I bought new pillows today. Four of them. One pair with down for him and one pair with polyester for me. Nice, firm, thick pillows that means we'll be comfortable for a change.
