Our Vibrating Bed

Here in the man-castle we have a nice, queen size bed, nestled there in our large bedroom on the second floor of the palace.  It is a very nice room, very comfy and one of my favorite rooms of the house.  That nice, warm, comfy bed, it seems, is of the vibrating variety.  I had not noticed this was the case in the beginning of this relationship.  In fact for months I’ve slept there all snug and warm with my Knight, completely unaware that our bed had such setting on it.

magic-fingers1-285x300There is no quarter slot anywhere, or a start button to get the bed into it’s quivering mode.  But recently, during the night time hours when all is still within the walls of our home, our bed will begin to shake.  I noted that the Knight was not having seizures so that was not the cause.  I also ruled out demonic infestations.

So, the source of this bizarre pulsating of the royal mattresses?

Well, it weighs in in 11.5 pounds (3.5 pounds heavier than it should be).  It’s furry and has 4 legs.  It is our adorable little Yorkie, Penny.  Recently she has been permitted to sleep on the bed as she remains within the community property area of our sleeping place.  That would be any area that our feet or heads or bodies are not occupying.  She is a wonderful foot warmer, all snuggled up in her blankets.  And she never causes either of us an issue.  At least unless she develops an itch in the night.  At that time she sits up and begins scratching with her hind leg in rapid movements, so hard that the bed begins to shake, rattle and roll.

Ha!  Bet that isn’t what  you thought when you read the title of this post!

Meet Me On Monday

My Answers!

1. What is your favorite food?

Seriously hard to nail down just one, as I LOVE food!  But by far one of my all time favorites is a Chipotle steak bowl with rice, black beans, corn salsa and cheese.  Only variation in what I get there is sometimes chicken rather than steak.  Oh and always chips, I use the chips to scoop and eat! YUM!

2.  What color scheme is  your bedroom?

The walls are painted Chai Latte, kind of a warm peach color.  All accents (curtains, bedding etc) are black and white.  I love my room, it is my nest and haven.

3.  Do you carry a donor card?

No, but my drivers license is flagged as an organ donor.  I am a huge supporter of organ  donation as a dear friend’s son was born with heart valve issues and required a valve replacement at 5 months old.  Someone  had to lose their precious child of 3 years old, but they lovingly gave the gift of life to countless other children by donating parts of that angel.  I cannot imagine NOT donating my organs.  Or blood on a regular basis for that matter!

4.  In your opinion, is the glass half empty or half full?

Full…only far more than half, about 95% full.  And I believe that is all attitude.  It isn’t our circumstances,  it is how we respond to them that makes life great!

5.  Vanilla or  Chocolate?

Chocolate…preferably dark chocolate.  🙂

Day 12 – Something I Am OCD About

All About Me  In 30 Days – Day 12

I first want to qualify that I am not truly OCD, at least I don’t think so, about anything.  Not in the true definition of OCD at least.

But I AM picky about certain things being a certain way.  One thing I am OCD about is my bed.  It has to be made every day shortly after I get up.  I cannot and will not get into the bed if it has not been made.  I am not sure why this is but my bed must be made  before I can get into it. 

Part of it, in my opinion, goes back to my feeling that my bedroom should be my nest, my haven, my safe place.  I like my room to be in order, things put away and the room clean.  It gives me a sense of peace when I am in my room.  I chose the color to help bring about warm and happy feelings, picked my bedding because when I saw it, it sparked good feelings.  Things being put away and in order helps with that peacefulness.

I’ve always felt that the bedroom should be special.  If married it should be a warm, inviting, restful place.  Again, a nest and haven for the couple.  It should be off limits to the rest of the family and to friends.  Oh, and no animals.  For now, because I am single,  I really do not mind my cat being in my room, or the other cats that come in and sleep on the bed with me.  But if I were married again, no animals share the bed or the room.  Rover and the kittens can sleep in the guest room, on the floor outside the master bedroom, anywhere they like except mine and the spouse’s room.

The center of the bedroom is the bed, so the bed MUST be made.  No ifs, ands,  or buts about it.
