But after about two hours my back starts hurting. I have a bad disc and when I lay on either side I guess I get into some sort of contorted position that aggravates my condition. Knowing this is going to be the case almost every night I prepare for it by pre-arranging a lap blanket K keeps on the couch and a pillow on my super-soft, well-broken-in leather chair in the great room.
After a couple of hours in bed I'm on to Plan B, "The Chair". Sitting up my weight is on my gluteous maximus ("butt" for those of you anatomically challenged), and all I can do is lean back....no contorted rolling around. When I had my retina surgeries years ago I had to sleep sitting up for a month while my eye healed...no lying flat. Oddly enough, once you get used to it it's pretty comfortable.
Turns out K isn't at all upset by me sleeping in the den because it keeps her from having to listen to me snore or click my teeth or yodel or whatever the hell it is I do in my sleep. I usually manage to wake up again before the alarm goes off and go back to bed for another few minutes of snuggle time.
Any of you top that for weirdness?
