Hey! I'm Gonna Use That List On My Blog!

Apparently, I'm not a peaceful sleeper. It may be the extremely vivid dreams I tend to have. I don't know. E has told me this many times. The other night, we were driving somewhere and he was complaining that I was "burrito-ing" myself in the covers and he had trouble getting them free when he came to bed. He said I "thrash" and practically jump up in the air when I turn over.
Unable to take all of the criticism, I shot back about his snoring. I know that I snore too, so that's what he shot back at me. He said, "On nights when you go to bed before me [most work nights], I'm in the den and can hear:"
  • The ocean
  • Seagulls
  • A restless pig!
I found it really funny. He said, "Yeah, but YOU'RE the pig!" Well, so? If we can't laugh at ourselves, then we really are taking things way too seriously, right? The ocean and seagulls are from my noise machine I like to fall asleep to, along with the air purifier. I have problems if it's too quiet.

I can't have any noise when I try to fall to sleep. I dated a guy who had to have the fan on even in the winter. It dried out my eyeballs and throat. We broke up.

Not over that but it was on the list.

I'm the opposite of Sizzle - I must have some sort of white noise to fall asleep, so I always have the fan on (although not always pointed at us in bed!)

Ditto the Slack. It's either a fan or the radio for me...

I've been told that I like to swaddle myself in the comforter like a baby, Paul be damned if he ever gets a bit of the comforter. And white noise helps a lot. But we laugh about it too. There are so many other things to get sore about.

My bed needs to be perfectly made before I get into it. I am like the princess and the pea.

I'm a Princess/Pea person too! And I must have quiet and DARK! No light allowed ... but I think I snore, but I'm sure it's in tune!
I like to burrow too ... and so does my cat.
