Picture a Day - Day 207

Someones been sleeping in my bed.

Oh no, someones been sleeping in my bed too.

Oh yeah. We'll someones been sleeping in my bed and she's still in there!Or at least it sure looks that way.

My husband has to be contained within a 5,000 degree oven to remain at his optimal core body temperature when he sleeps. This is usually accomplished by a quilt that weighs about 30 pounds and could crush small mammals.

Most mornings when he gets up he pushes and mangles his blankets into weird shapes (and always closer to my side). There have been numerous times I've woken up and thought that he was still lying next to me when he'd already made a b-line for his computer hours ago.

It is a bit disconcerting to being so sure you're going to put your arm around a person and suddenly find you've pulverized their neck because they're actually full of down.

This picture probably crushes all those images you all had of me as the perfect 1950's domestic goddess. The beds aren't made (and are never made as it just seems like an exercise in futility to me), the decor doesn't even come close to matching, and the biggest horror or horrors we don't sleep in separate beds!

I'll just go and sew this giant Scarlett A on me now. Toodles.

You don't sleep in separate beds?! You must be married or something! :) My husband's the opposite. He can barely stand a sheet to sleep in and I like lots of blankets (in winter at least) and I manage to ruin the bed each morning with my moving around. It keeps life entertaining!

Haha. I never make the bed till I have to get back into it the next night. What difference does it make, in the end?

I need more blankets than my husband, so we have the duvet and big blanket, and then I drape an extra blanket on my side of the bed. It provides lovely bolstering against cold air when bunched up on the side.

Ha! I never make the bed either. Why? I'm just going to get back in. Tai and I each have our own blankets. We can't share.

Hey, a bed unmade is the least of anyones worries LOL! We are the opposite - I'm always cold, the hubby is always hot. Wish there was a bed you could adjust the temp on each side :)
