Best Positions in Bed

Occasionally, more than occasionally, I run across a nonsense article in a magazine.

What your favorite kind of chocolate says about you.

What the shape of your lipstick end says about you.

What your sleep position says about you.

I read the sleep position one not long ago.

I can't remember what the different positions said, but here is what my sleep position(s) say about me.

Sleep position #1. This is when I sprawl across the bed facing to my left. This position says, “There’s no husband or kids in here. I’m taking up the whole bed.”

Sleep position #2. That’s when I lay on my right side. It says, “The husband is in bed. He puts out more body heat than Satan lying under an electric blanket. Face the other way and you can occasionally lift up the covers and get some cool air.”

Sleep position #3. That’s when I lay on my back. This one says, “That right shoulder that aches all the time is hurting. Time to switch position.”

Sleep position #4. That’s when I’m curled in a ball falling off the edge. That position states, “SJ made it into the bed. Between him and husband there is no room. Please enjoy the lack of covers and the draft on your backside.” (Pajama-clad backside, that is.)

Tell me, what does your sleep position say about you?
And does anybody else do this?

Be honest with me now.

When you started blogging, maybe there was somebody who commented almost all the time.

Then their comments got fewer and farther between.

Then they quit coming.

You wondered if they were too busy to blog. But then you saw their comments on other blogs, many other blogs.

Then you wondered do I bore them? Or worse, maybe they don’t like me anymore?

Oh my gosh, is this high school stuff? Am I reverting? If anybody else does this, fess up.

Else I will feel stupid for putting it out there. You wouldn’t want me to think I’m stupid AND boring now would you?

And yes, this post is supposed to be funny. Really, I’m not having a pity party here. You have to keep clicking on the "next blog" button to find one of those.

Woo hoo. I am first commenter. Remember when we were more interested in SEX positions than sleep positions? What happened to that? Oh yeah...children.
Yes, I have gotten all self concious and high schoolish about blog commenters. It does make me wonder what is going on. I do over analyze and get stalkerish. Have I said to much? You are not alone. I LOVE your blog.

Now I want to know who the person is! I used to hit "next blog" but all i found was an alarming amount of porn and blogs in other languages.

GM - Such a true observation. Since sex gave me children in the first place, I tend to be leery of it. LOL I am a big fan of your blog. You definitely seem like somebody I could sit down and have a cup of coffee or maybe some margaritas with.

Bearette - You will find some scary stuff hitting the next blog button. Although, I think that may have been how I found your blog so that part was good.

Haa,I sleep with a furnace too!
Don't forget this position
Curled up into a tight ball,pretending to be asleep all the while thinking-not tonight,not tonight not tonight;p

Sometimes I wonder too,when people stop commenting and kind of disappear,but then I usually meet somebody new and forget about the person I wondered about in the first place.People come,people go
the core group usually stays the same I've found:)

You know, only the ones that really love you stay. :)

I think we have a very similar sense of humor. That's why I keep coming back. Plus, in a very high schoolish way, I have to comment on yours cuz, like, you keep commenting on mine. Talk 2UL8TR!

Your bestest bud Rox

I am - Good it's not only me.

Ms. L. - Not tonight. LOL

Paula - Yep to Ms. L's comment?

Roxanne - You know some good teen slang.

of course there's the whole lying on the side away from the husband, blankets pulled up over the ears, a desperate look on the face that says" please stop snoring, i have to sleep. the boy gets up in a few hours. just SHUT UP". this is usually followed by a quick punch to hubby's shoulder.

Blogger Paula said...

Yep to the question in your post.

my position# 1...face down..head to the right...very close to the edge..."I am tired like a f*cking dog and Miss C is hogging the bed"

Position # 2 to the side facing left.."True is in bed...hogging up all the room...with his hands sprawled open and I have no where to go"

Position # 3 facing upwards..."I can't sleep...or I have an overnight face cream on...or my left shoulder blade is killing me..."

I've hit that Next button..and I've been afraid..I've feared for my life..especially if they have a tracker that can tell where your're from...

I heart ur blog!

Yeah, I'm a big fan of your blog too. But you knew that.

no, I don't wonder where people go - we all fluctuate, have different things going on, people come and go. I love that about life. And about blogging - and I love that blogging brings me into contact with people I would never ordinarily meet. It rocks.

I am drunk and need sleep though. 'night. x

Blogger Carolyn said...

Velcro - My Mom sleeps in a seperate room from her snorer.

Paula - Ah, a fellow neurotic.

Mary - I heart yours too, especially some of your funny stories.

Badgerdaddy - See that is the difference between men and women. We overanalyze. Men, however, go "meh."

Oh, I feel similarly, but I am new so I am always hoping for a comment. I realized the other day though that I seem to get at least one comment per post which makes me happy. It is silly, isn't it to hope for someone to notice. Oh well.

Thanks for the comment on my blog by the way.

Craftydabbler - You're very welcome. What you did is the definition of motherhood. :P

I always wonder why people stop commenting.....but if I bore people, then what can I do? I am what I am :) Like someone else said...the core group will stay. Usually I am good at commenting but then life occasionally gets int he way and it might be a couple of days til I get to commenting.....but I always come back to the ones I love :)
