To this day he drifts in and out of our boudoir for various reasons: sex, sleep, intimacy, his bed is not made…. Frankly, I am so used to sleeping alone (well not alone – with 1, 2 or 3 cats) that when he decides to invade my personal space (Isn’t that what marriage is?) without warning, I get absolutely NO SLEEP.
By the time I get acclimated to a warm, non-furry body next to me, he’s gone again because of his crazy work schedule.
Back to the lack of sound sleep….
Girls… you know what I’m talking about. The burping, farting, snoring and general restlessness of a man is difficult to look forward to.
My friend tries to convince me that it’s part of marriage and she’ll never go to sleep without her husband next to her. I agree – but once you get used to the less smelly, less noisy version of sleep, it’s hard to go back. I already have to deal with the cats and my own ADHD. Damn! I take to 2 Benadryl every night so so I can fall asleep at a decent hour.
I am not a cuddler. I am always warm and can’t stand the idea of someone snuggled up against me. Maybe I’m a guy in a chick’s body? Who knows!
Are separate bedrooms the new retro modern?
I think so. Right or wrong. Good or bad. I think if it works for you, go for it. What do you think? I’d love to hear from you.
