Do you have a “side of the bed” that you always sleep on? When you’re a couple, do you always take the same side of the bed, even when you’re away from home? If you’re just one, do sleep on one side or do you take the middle?
When I was married, we always took the same side of the bed, wherever we were, visiting someone or in a hotel. I was thinking back this morning and it always worked out that I was the one nearest the door, which was also nearest the bathroom. I don’t know why. I think it just worked out that way. I don’t recall ever discussing it. It just was. Even in motels and hotels. It just was.
After my divorce, I kept my side of the bed. I could have switched. I could have switched. I could have slept in the middle. I guess old habits die hard. I still sleep on the side closest to the bathroom; closest to the door. It’s a big bed but I never sleep in the middle. I could. I just don’t. Old habits. In fact, but I guess that might be a different reason, I usually put stuff next to me in the bed. I put my Kindle there or, like right now, I have my phone, my Kindle, and the laptop (well I’m using the laptop but I picked it up from next to me) next to me in bed. I could take the entire bed but I don’t. I think the next time I have to change beds I will just get a single bed. They take up less space and I won’t have to fill the other side of the bed with stuff.
I will get my mind back on track. I’ll make it stop wandering.
Okay, back to regularly scheduled blogging.
