Oh I know you have been waiting for a post. Admit it. You missed me!
I am telling you now I haven’t been very well of recent and I do thank those who have supported me through it. Now that I am starting to feel a little better I am in a FANTASTIC show at the moment which everyone should come and see. Alas, I have been unable to dedicate myself to this.
However, this afternoon, I felt inspired to write.
Today’s topic: The Great Bed Wars.
Enter Kelly and I.
Let’s take a look. I am not a small girl. I am not saying I am some giantic slimy thing you find flipping around in the ocean but I am a good 5’7 to 5’8 and have rather long legs. Kelly and I are very close in height but if we are both bare foot I stand ever so slightly taller than him.
Both of us over the years have also become accustomed to sleeping on our own in a queen bed. A queen bed on your own means more room to move.
In this, I have become one of those awful ‘diagonal’ sleepers. Add that to the fact that Kelly is, well, not a wafer boy (He’s a good ice-hockey build) we often laugh at each other about sleep. See, I think Kelly takes up most of the bed as he sleeps majority on his back. He, however, disagrees and says it is my diagonal sleeping that is the spoiler.
I think this is a common thing amongst couples surely?
We’ve been living together for quite a while now and had often discussed purchasing a new king bed. I remember a couple of years ago him and I had a dirty weekend away at a hotel in a king size bed and possibly had the best night sleep ever (Oh, insert wink wink here… EH HE HE HE ). Then when we went to the USA we had king beds the entire time and the same rule applied.
Today, very randomly, we walked in, saw a bed and went “YES! Let’s!”
THIS IS BOUND TO SOLVE ALL PROBLEMS!!!
I kind of felt sorry for the sales guy when we were talking about what is going to constitute a good bed for us. We went through comfortbale mattress, storage underneath, size, colour and then of course “bounce factor” (cough cough). I couldn’t help but lose it when Kelly said “Well, they do have machines to test all that”… Bwahahaha.
So, right now the two of us are sitting on the couch together, looking out the window, eagrely awaiting the delivery truck with said new bed. (Kelly even keeps looking out the blinds everytime a noise is heard)
Then we got to talking, and after the ultimate come down of excitement after our purchase, I looked and him and said:
“You do realise, I have zero intention of stopping my diagonal sleeping habit right?!” to which he replied “Babe, I am fully anticipating you sleeping horizontal and me ending up with feet in my face!… *sigh*”
The moral of the story is… You could have a bed the size of a house and you would still end up in eachother’s faces. But hey, at least we cuddle a lot so that negates the rest.
