bedside manners...

do you have a side of the bed? for as long as I can remember I've slept on the right side of the bed... I'm typically not a sprawl out in the middle of the bed when I'm alone person either - I always sleep on my side [unless one too many cocktails is involved, then who knows]. When I was single, when DJ was out of town, when I was at hotels alone traveling for work - I always slept on the right side of the bed. 

this shouldn't be an issue right.. except... well, my sweet, sweet DJ likes the right side of the bed too. what's a girl to do? I mean, I really like the right side of the bed but I don't want to just take it.

I wonder too if it's a control thing - I like being by the nightstand. I like being able to grab my phone if I need to. Right now we only have one nightstand and one electrical outlet by the bed -- on the right side.  So I think we need two in our next setup and then I could consider being on the left side.... maybe.

I've been sleeping on the left side for the past few days [just to be a nice wife] and I guess it's alright - I mean what makes a side of the bed any better or different? why do I think I like the right so much more?? the left doesn't feel wrong, it just doesn't feel right [get it, right]....

Maybe in Atlanta I'll become a left-side of the bed person.... I also think about how lucky I am that for the past year my husband has sucked it up and slept on the "wrong side" of the bed with very minimal complaining so maybe it's my year to try something new [not someone new, don't worry DJ ;)].

do you have a side of the bed? does it feel weird to not sleep on it? is it just me??

i'm a left side of the bed kind of gal. it's hard for me to switch it up if i'm sharing the bed with someone so i sympathize!

yes! I'm a left side of the bedder, although, as soon as I mentioned this to my boyfriend, it's been a fight for the left sid e (I always win.) He just wantes to get under my skin sometimes, not funny! but i definitely sleep better on the left side!

I sleep on the right side too! But I can adapt to any side. I am usually on whatever side the door is on so that if an intruder comes they'll overtake me first and my Husband can save me. If it were the other way around my Hubby might be screwed ;) Okay I just like the right side.

I don't necessarily have a side of the bed, but I like to be on the side of the bed furthest from the door; so at my house it's te left side and at my mans it's the right!! Cute blog :)

I'm a right side kind of girl AND when I sleep on the other side of the bed, I get all kinds of confused when I wake up!

I don't really have a specific side of the bed...but I DO need a nightstand (because I have glasses and I'm BLIND without them--I need to have them right next to me when I wake up) and I need to be closest to the bathroom because I always get up at least once in the middle of the night to pee. Sometimes more than once. Sigh.
