I just finished another glorious afternoon nap….I’ve been taking a lot of those lately. Actually, yesterday I took TWO naps! I’m trying to extract every minute of free sleep that I can get before the baby gets here since I know that will be a luxury I won’t be able to often afford! Having Clay home on the weekend is great since I can just say, “OK, I’m tired, I’m going to lie down, don’t let her eat too many crackers!” Ah, the joys of a non-nursing child!
Anyway, about the bed. I was lying in bed and I looked around and noticed that we have FIVE full-size pillows in there! Five! Now that’s getting a little out of control. It all started because when I’m pregnant my back hurts, especially at night when I’m lying in bed, so I started sleeping with a pillow between my knees to align my spine. Then Clay, being the ever conscientious physical therapist, noticed that he too enjoyed keeping his back aligned and in proper position. And as time’s gone by, we’ve both kinda graduated our leg pillows to full-out body-sprawl pillows. So right there you’re at four pillows. Then there’s Clay’s face pillow. On most nights I like to lie in bed and read with a lamp on for awhile after Clay’s asleep. So he puts a pillow over his face. He says it’s really comfortable, I dunno, but that definitely makes for FIVE pillows in our bed every night! Sometimes we have to practically wave at each other to say goodnight because we’re lying so far apart due to all the pillows in between us!
Oh well, at least we’re both super comfortable! This is also thanks to one of my Christmas presents—fleece sheets! They are AMA—wait for it….ZING!!!! I just want to spend all day lying in bed and moving my arms back and forth to enjoy their softness. I don’t know how we can ever go back to regular sheets. So yeah, even though five pillows might be a little bit of overkill, I highly recommend the comfort factor and the wonderful sheets! Too bad I can’t spend more time in the bed.
