Each night since I've changed beds I've stayed up until I felt tired around 11:30pm. Then I've gotten into my new bed lying down on my back in the center. I cross my arms and hands on my chest and I think about any pleasant things that have happened to me during the day. I'm asleep in 10 minuets. Isn't that cool!
Couldn't figure it out at first until I realized I was feeling claustrophobic in the king size bed...because it was too soft for sleep and hard too get out of....while the twin bed is very firm.
I had grumbled about having the dog on the bad, claiming that was the reason that I couldn't sleep. So my wife remembered the granddog bed, put it on the floor and a couple of pats later, Harry understood what was required. Of course that didn't work, I still couldn't sleep; he was sleeping better it appeared.
The cats decided it was safer to sleep on the loveseat in the office, warmer too since my wife likes breathing chilly air when sleeping. I don't miss canine and feline activity because I really do need to get a good night's rest.
