A bit more sleep

Thank goodness it's warm in here, but, unfortunately, I can only breathe through one nostril.  It's comfy and cozy, and I've settled in to get some extra sleep after my late night return home.  What woke me? 

As I crack my eyes open a bit, sunlight creeps from behind the translucent curtains, letting me know it's morning.  Why don't we get some blinds or those blackout curtains?  I close my eyes against the light and let out a deep breath, trying to sink back into a slumber.

"I made you some coffee," my husband whispers from behind me, but I don't answer.  I don't want coffee...I want sleep.  He kisses the back of my head, gets up, and leaves past the foot of the bed, presumably to the kitchen for the coffee.

With his pillow free, I grab it and smash it over my head with just my mouth and nose peeking out for fresh air.  I am determined to sleep more.  Deep breath in...and release it...

  1. I'm Christine Senior - google is being a pain with me posting! I had a late night last night too so I can empathize with the need for more sleep. I hope you were able to sleep while breathing through your one nostril!

    1. I did take an extra little nap around 10 while the kids got their screen time. :) I hope you can catch some extra zzzzzs also.

  3. Must be the day to sleep in! Love it. You have me curious about the one nostril to breath from. I like how you end with being mindful of relaxing technics. Hope it worked!

    1. If I would have had any energy at all, I would have gotten up to get some cold medicine, and then gone back to sleep. As it was, I just napped later in the day.

  4. You're so lucky to have somebody bring you coffee! I'm the only coffee drinker in our household so I'm on my own when it comes to that!

  5. Well, he rarely brings it to me...like maybe five times in our almost nineteen year marriage. BUT he makes the coffee at least half the time, so I'm grateful for that.
