I’m usually the first one up in the morning. I like to get a workout in or take my time getting ready, so by the time my husband stumbles into the bathroom to brush his teeth, I’m usually putting the finishing touches on my make-up, like I was this morning.
“You went swimming again last night,” my husband grumbled pushing past me.
Of course, I responded by rolling my eyes. This has been an ongoing debate in our married household, whether or not I toss and turn and kick in my sleep. The only evidence my husband has against me is that the covers are messed up in the morning when we wake up, which I point out every time could just as well be his fault.
I know that I like to change positions during my sleep, and I would argue that the average person changes positions a few times, but by no means does that mean I “swim” at night like my husband says.
And might I just say that he has his own weird sleeping patterns as well. Sometimes, I wake up in the middle of the night, and he’s lying on his stomach, with his head propped up on a pillow, which is a position that kind of reminds me of a beached seal. (Yeah, you just got a mental image, huh? If you need some help thinking of an image, see below.)
Or sometimes, I wake up, and his face is literally inches away from mine. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for cuddling, but when you open your eyes in a dark room and you see a face within inches of your own, it’s kind of creepy.
Oh yeah, and he snores too. Although he’ll never admit it, but he does. So as long as he continues having these weird sleeping habits, then I’m going to continue to have my own.
So in conclusion, I just want to set the record straight – my sleeping habits are NOT weird, and I do NOT “swim” in my sleep…At least not that has been proven thus far.
