Comfy Couch

Why does your best sleep sometimes come from the couch?

I have a very comfortable king size bed with 400 ct sheets and a comforter and multiple pillows that you could get lost in. I figure 1/3 of my day is spent in bed, it might as well be one of the better places in my house. However, I think I work more in there than anywhere else. Hold on, not that type of work! (This is PG) I dream these dreams that are so real that later I sometimes question whether that was a dream or if it really happened. And these dreams couldn't be relaxing dreams....they are working dreams. I dream that I'm at work and actually dream conversations with coworkers. I dream about writing papers and doing Power Point presentations for school. I even dream about packing, moving and unpacking! Some of my better ideas have come while dreaming, but that's not what I want!!! I want 8 hours of mind numbing, brain dead sleep!

Well, this must be catching up with me as I was sitting on the couch with Kiki the pootie dog, flipping through reruns of Will and Grace, Friends and Roseanne and felt this overwhelming exhaustion hit me. I laid down on the couch, pull the blanket down from the back of the couch, cuddle with Kiki and decide to get a quick nap in. An hour later, I woke up like I had the best full night's sleep ever. I don't believe I dreamed for a minute (if that's possible).

So again, why does our best sleep come from the couch? Or am I the only one?

The good news....I slept through all the crappy TV and woke up just in time for ER! Tonight, Cynthia Nixon (from Sex and the City) guest stars. Oh the simple things that amuse me.....
