Shut-Eye Disclosures A La Green Eyed Lady

Shut-Eye Disclosures

1) How many pillows do you sleep on?


2) Do you sleep in the nude?

Not normally

3) Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?

As a child I did, and I still have some stuffed animals. The main mouse is on the bed when it is made, but I do not sleep with any stuffed animals.

4) Do you use a top sheet?

Yes, and a comforter or light blanket. I need a certain amount of weight on me to feel comfortable... even in the summer. Thank God for air conditioning!

5) Do you fall asleep to the TV?

Yes, most of the time. I put the sleep timer on and rarely am aware of the TV turning off.

6) Do you remember your dreams?

Sometimes I do, but usually just the dreams I have when I am partially awake

7) Do you sleepwalk?


8) Do you snore?

When I am congested I snore. I don't hear it, but I hear about it! ;o)

9) Do you braid your hair before going to bed?

I haven't had braids since I was in second grade!

10) Do you wear socks to bed?

A few nights a year when it is cold (below 40 degrees)

11) Do you hug and kiss your pillow (still)?

No. I don't think I ever did!

12) Do you eat in bed?

No, but I do keep water next to the bed to drink at night.

13) What size is your bed?

King size, but I only use 1/3 of it. My cats are bed hogs.

14) Do your kids sleep with you?

No, and they never did.

15) Are you a normal, light, or heavy sleeper?

I have cycles where I get into a deep sleep, but I tend to be a light sleeper. I think it comes from listening for children in the middle of the night for so many years.

16) Do you have nightmares?

Rarely... usually my dreams are more weird than scary. Recently I have been dreaming about doing pie charts for the parish financial report. I think I need to get a life!

17) What's the best amount of sleep for you to feel good the next day/night?

Seven hours usually works for me, although I often function on much less.

18) Can you see in the dark?

Somewhat. It helps if I open my eyes.

19) Do you fantasize in your sleep?

Yes, but not necessarily sexual fantasies. I fantasize about all sorts of things, especially about having marvelous powers of persuasion or having brilliant answers... or rescuing someone from a disaster... that type of thing. I seem to enjoy being in control or a heroine in my fantasies. I guess that means I perceive a lack of control in my waking hours.

I often wonder why it is that it is so hard to sleep without blankets even when it is super super hot.

I have found opening the eyes does help when trying to see in the dark, glad I'm not alone in that discovery. Enjoyed the post. Hope you had a marvelous Thanksgiving with all of the family coming in.
