Ok, so the bed wasn’t great at first but now it’s my preferred studying spot. And Tucker’s preferred snoozing spot, but only if there is someone to squish up against. My aches and pains might even be improving. And if it’s the placebo effect, inspired by the silly amount of money we spent on it, I’m ok with that.
So Trevor decided to cancel the tv cable. I am describing it as a social experiment. The only thing I have missed so far is live sports (the 10 minutes a week I watch is fairly expensive I guess). I don’t miss the advertising. I might miss “House Hunters International” when I am trying to run on the treadmill at 6:00 am… not entirely sure what I will do then. I have a few podcasts I can listen to but we’ll see if that keeps me motivated when I am desperate to stop. The kids are managing with recorded stuff but their friends feel sorry for them. We’ll see how long before we crack and call for basic cable again.
I’m off to battle Tucker for some nocturnal real estate. It’s a big bed, but he is a bigger dog and he really doesn’t like lying in a neat and tidy ball at the end of the bed – no, he must be right up against me. Not fair. Aimee has way more human-to-bed ratio – why doesn’t he sleep with her?
I’ll keep you posted on the cable experiment, as well as any developments on the bed. Ok, maybe not any developments, but I’ll definitely let you know how much the quality of my sleep improves as I get used to its vastness and space-foamy comfort.
