hi. jenna here.
there are many things i'm not good at. one of those is sleeping--never have been, probably never will be. i am one of the lightest sleepers i know (probably get it from mom). i mean, if jake rolls over, i'm up. poor jake...i toss and turn all night long and i'm sure it messes with his sleep too (although he never says so because he's too sweet). anyway, after a long two weeks of not sleeping very much, i decided to go to costco and get a novaform topper. our king bed at home is a novaform and we LOVE it, so naturally i thought: this is the solution. turns out, i didn't sleep any differently. i ended up going into the second bedroom and sleeping on a mattress with some random blankets we have around. unfortunately, it's my love that might be the problem. jake is sad when he wakes up and i'm not there--and he knows why, which makes him feel bad (he literally sleeps at a diagonal these days. bah!). but i have a new solution! i moved a twin bed into our bedroom next to our queen. i bought some cheap but very cute bedding from ikea, set it all up, and now i have my own bed! we decided that we're going to switch on and off between beds so that we both get the best of both worlds.
aren't we smart? we'll cuddle for awhile in the queen--do whatever we normally do--and then when it's time for sleep, one of us scoots on over to the twin. visa versa the next night. i can't believe how fabulous of a plan this is. so impressed with myself. and for some reason, i love how it looks. proof that we're smart:
this is the only update i've got. take it or leave it! my father-in-law is on a plane as we speak coming to visit in orlando. we're so excited to see him. until next time.
