So for Saturday Six…tell us how you get down in the bedroom. (All about your sleep style sickos! Get your mind out of the gutter!)
- How many hours per night/day do you sleep?
- Night owl or morning person?
- What do you wear to bed?
- Sleep crutches? (Sleep with a radio, fan, t.v. on? Have to have something particular in order to doze?)
- Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?
- Any strange stories about sleepwalking/talking or anything of that nature?
How many hours per night/day do you sleep?
For starters…not enough! On week nights 5-6 hours is a good night, which could be improved upon if I would stick my sorry butt in bed earlier but I don’t. On weekends that can be 8-12 hours depending on the mood of my cat in the morning. If Pixel Kitten wants me up and moving then I’ll be lucky to score the 8 hours. Her powers of persuasion are rather impressive so she usually wins.
Night owl or morning person?
NOT a night owl. I guess I am more of a morning person. Assuming I can start the morning out slowly, with coffee, waking up the brain at my own pace, then we are good to go and off to a happy start. No coffee = one mean, unpleasant person, don’t risk it.
What do you wear to bed?
I own a wide variety of cute jammies in tank top and shorts styles, or capri and long pants. Because I live with all these chicks I am related too, and 2 of them are younger, I respect them and don’t run around naked as I’d prefer. Some nights I sleep that way, but since I know sooner or later I will be up to use the bathroom (old age and drinking way to much water before bed) I usually crawl in with the shirt to the jammies on and slip the pants on as needed. Not to mention, knowing my luck the damn house would catch fire and I’d need to be rescued through my bedroom window in the front of the house, and it would be Lord Voldemort the ex-hubster that had to carry my naked ass over his shoulder down the ladder. I’m thinking NOT A CHANCE, I’ll be carted out with something on if you don’t mind. Especially since I could see him dropping me onto the lawn from half way down the ladder and I’d end up landing so that my fat, bare ass was sticking straight up.
Sleep crutches? (Sleep with a radio, fan, t.v. on? Have to have something particular in order to doze?)
It is necessary for the bed to be made before I will get in it. Weird I know. And I have to have my teddy bear. Yes, 47yo and I still sleep with a teddy bear. I cannot sleep without him. I am also afraid of the dark so I have a night light in the form of a Febreze luminary burning in my room at night so I can see. I know, I’m a freak.
Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?
VERY rarely…and most that I do remember are just plain WEIRD.
Any strange stories about sleepwalking/talking or anything of that nature?
To my knowledge I do not walk or talk in my sleep. I DO sleep like the dead, however. The first hubby had to come home from the firehouse one night after being injured in a fire (noticing this disturbing trend of marrying fire fighters? Yeah, that trend is OVER). He had a coworker call me and stay on the phone with me until he got home and took the phone from me. This is because he knew that if he called and told me he was coming home, I’d not remember it and likely have shot him thinking it was an intruder when he got in the house. He was likely correct as the next morning, after talking for 20 minutes to his coworker I had NO recollection and was shocked to find the hubby in bed with me. So maybe I do function in my sleep after all? Dunno but I am somewhat of a lighter sleeper now so hopefully those days are gone.
