Yes that's right people, I'm talking about The Arm. Everynight when Dan and I go to bed we always start out snuggled close next to each other ready for a peaceful sleep. But then he puts his arm underneath my pillow and it lifts my head up in an awkward position that makes it impossible for me to comfortably fall asleep. A few weeks ago he fell asleep right away with his arm under my head and I didn't want to wake him, so I left it there for like two hours! Finally, after watching the clock hit one in the morning, I said screw it and moved The Arm.
Sometimes I can fall asleep no problem with The Arm under my head, but most of the time it's more of a sleep hazard. Occasionally Dan will wake up with a sore arm due to our attempts to sleep holding eachother. It's a lose/lose situation because I like it when Dan holds me at night, and it feels weird when we're facing opposite directions. I've been meaning to write about this for awhile now, curious to see how others comfortably cuddle at night with no uncomfortable casualties. Let me know what you think. ;)
