My Sick Bed

I have a cold. 

It's the kind that likes to linger.

It is nearly undetectable during the day now, but it sneaks up on me at night.

Last night I coughed my brains out.

I didn't get much sleep-- neither did the mister.

I was in the bathroom guzzling cough syrup at 3 a.m.

It didn't help.

So I decided to be a good wife and go sleep in the guest room so one of us could get a little shut eye.

I probably shouldn't have done that because now I know what I'm missing.  It turns out our guest bed is super awesomely impossibly comfortable.  It's also on it's own level which makes it pretty much sound proof.


If you've been following me for a while you know how I feel about a king sized bed.  (you can reminisce HERE)  I think it's vital for a healthy marriage to have a king sized bed.  Everyone needs a little space-- OK.  Just sayin'.

So this morning the mister finds me in the guest room.  I explained my new love for the bed and ask, "Do you think it would be too much to shove two of these together in our bedroom?"  (It's a queen.) From the look on his face, I don't think I'll be getting my request any time soon.
How cool would that be?  If a kid or dog comes in in the middle of the night it would be way more do-able right?  You could sprawl out however you wanted.  (Apparently I'm not the first person to think of this because I found plenty of pictures and blogs about exactly this.  There are some smart people out there-- I'm tellin' ya.)

Pure heaven.

Just think about it.

I loved the bed in your guest room too. Catherine liked it too.
Now for a costume. In my target today I saw a Mr and Mrs. Potato . That sound dumb it was from the potato game.

I must confess, that usually Mr. Handsome is sleeping across the hall in the guest room. It has a TV and he likes to listen to the radio as he falls asleep. I like silence and dark. Our bedroom is way too tiny for a king-sized bed, so this is what we do.
