I have to remind myself that just because you like someone doesn't mean you have to like sleeping next to someone. (Don't get me wrong- his sleeping options haven't changed. This is not a democracy, it's a marriage.)

Lemme 'splain.

I'm a bit of ambitious sleeper. My goal is to cover as much ground as possible. I am Lewis and/or Clark and your pillow is the Pacific Coast.

Pete is a Zen Buddhist monk. (Perhaps by necessity at this point.) He requires very little, sleep-wise: a pillowesque thing, a corner of a blanket (if he is especially lucky), four solid hours. He practically sleeps with one eye open, ready for anything. He rises for numerous bathroom breaks. He corrals the kitties for a feeding at 3 am or whenever they stir.

As for me, I've slept through thunderstorms, car alarms, and a good portion of my kid’s early morning antics. (I tell people that they slept through the night since seven weeks. I actually have no idea if this is true. Bottom line- Mama slept.) I can't help it. I am either a really stellar sleeper or severely vitamins D and B12 deficient.  My recent blood work negated the latter.

But back to Pete.  Damn his snoring!  Lol.
