Review of the @Purple Hybrid Premier Mattress

Purple Mattress

I’m reviewing the Purple Mattress, and I’m doing so in a nontraditional way because I’m a nontraditional person in nontraditional circumstances. Sleep has been a struggle for me since having kids.

Why this Dad is sleeping on the couch tonight

Let me tell you about my favorite way to start the new week. By favorite I mean the absolutely worst way to begin the week cause it sets a tone that seems to follow me through the rest of it.  Picture this, the boys are in bed, and I just hit the Walgreens to pick …
