Do not fold, staple ...

Happy New Year, whispered softly. The house is quiet - the neighborhood is quiet. For all I can tell, the whole city is sleeping in, today.

Big E has been sleeping, under orders, in the recliner lately. This morning, he had somehow migrated to the couch and was doing just fine sleeping on a flat surface. Except, he was scrunched origami-like into the length of the couch. I persuaded him to sleepwalk to his bed where he could unfold.

Who knew such a tall person could be folded into such a small box ...

Wasn't it Forrest Gump who said. "Sleepin' is as sleepin' does?" It works for me!

It has been a long time since I slept on a couch. I wasn't so sure I could sleep there. The chair kinda keeps your head up. I wanted to lay down. Since I could take on the couch, I could take on the bed. That was scary though, the last time I slept on a bed I ended up in pain.
