Saturday Six

How many hours per night/day do you sleep?

I probably average about 7 hours a night though I really need way more than that.  I don't know why I can't make myself go to bed earlier.  I can easily sleep a stretch of 12 hours if given the opportunity.

Night owl or morning person?

Well, definitely not a morning person but I am not one to stay up all night either.  I NEED my sleep or I'm no good.  I've never been mistaken for a morning person in my life.  No matter how long I sleep, I always wake up feeling groggy and have to drag myself out of bed and have been known to bump into walls on many, many mornings. I always head straight for the coffee pot!

What do you wear to bed?

Usually some comfy pj's and my night guard that fits on my two upper front teeth to prevent me from grinding my teeth in my sleep.  It makes me look like Bugs Bunny and causes me to have dreams that my front teeth are falling out.  Sexy, I know!   

Sleep crutches? (Sleep with a radio, fan, t.v. on? Have to have something particular in order to doze?)

I have to have a glass of water by the bed because I usually wake up thirsty several times a night.  And my two wiener dogs...gotta have my doggies.  This is why we have a king sized bed now. 

Do you remember your dreams when you wake up?

Sometimes I do and sometimes I don't remember a thing.  I have really crazy whacked out dreams last night I had a dream that I was riding my bike down a highway which is insane because number 1,  it is rare that I ride a bike and number 2, I HATE when people ride their bikes on the highway because it's just dangerous and stupid and I'm always afraid I'm going to accidentally hit one of them with my car.

Any strange stories about sleepwalking/talking or anything of that nature?

I can't think of anything strange I've done but my two boys both have histories of night terrors (which, if you've never witnessed you are blessed because that is some stressful, disturbing stuff right there!), sleep walking and talking in their sleep.  My oldest sometimes gets up and walks around all over the house like he's looking for something (dead asleep).  I always find it amazing that he knows to step over things when he's doing this.  It's really freaky. 


  1. My youngest grinds his teeth so bad! It makes me crazy.

    Did you know that reoccurring dreams of losing teeth mean that you're fearful of getting pregnant? True story...I have that one ALL the time!

  2. I have to sleep with a fan on. Absolute silence makes me nervous.

  3. That is so freaky he knows to step over things. Wow.
    I need to get a nightguard. I grind my teeth too.
