no, not like real deal, move out space....i need some bed space!!!
i know that a majority of you ladies are either in a relationship, or married...so suffice it to say, most of us have shared a bed with a boy.
and i don't know about you...but i'm all for the sleepytime snuggletime and everything...but after that....i want the bed to myself!!
it doesn't help we're hardly living large when it comes to our sleeping arrangements.
this is our bed, in our old townhouse. i LOVE the way it looks, i love that it's solid cherry, i love that my grandmother gave it to me and it's at least 60 years old....but i do NOT love how small it is!! it's a full-size....but an awkard full, since it's so old, i think it was before beds were standard sizes.
when i was living at home, it was perfect for me....i could sleep on my one side, and sprawl if i wanted to.
now, the hubs elbows me IN THE FACE at least once a week, sometimes once a night, because he's all arms and legs and joints and pointy, not padded at all man parts.
plus, he's a bed hog. now, i'll admit...when it gets cold, i'm a straight up blanket ninja...i'll have the whole thing stolen to my side in no time flat, without ever uncovering myself...leaving him to fend for himself.
but that's just temperature, not real estate!!! i don't like waking up in the middle of the night, feeling like i'm gonna topple off my side of the bed (and into the giant stack of magazines that one day will actually make it to the recycling bin).
eventually, we'll be buying a new house, and this will probably become the guest bedroom bed....even though it's heavy as all get out, i can't bear to NOT have it with me, it's too pretty!!
anybody got any tricks for keeping the hubs to his side of the bed, short of straight-jacketing him so his stupid elbows stay away from my pretty mug?
what do you hate most about sleeping with boys?
