slumber muse

oh bedtime. how I love and hate bedtime. I love bedtime because, well, just because, you know. I think though that it may be getting to that point in my life where I need to sleep on a real mattress on a bed frame on the floor instead of an old hard futon in the air. going to bed is such a production with a bed in the air. did I bring my water with me? should I pee one last time? it's like going for a twelve-hour car ride.

if life were perfect there would be a sleeping surface within reasonable distance from every point in the house so that when it was time to turn out the lights all I'd have to do is scoot over a bit, lie down and close my eyes. and when I woke up in the middle of the night I wouldn't have to weigh the pros and cons of waking up enough to descend the ladder without hurting myself.

on the other hand if everything were a bed, like everything is when you are a cat, I would sleep as much as a cat.

which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing--must conserve energy for the important things in life--but I'd need more hours in the day so that I could also get things done. up for 18 hours, sleep for 12. this is how I'd like to live my life.
