Bed Nazi

First off, YES that is Barbie in bed! haha!!

Now …so Matt calls me the “Bed Nazi” and I have to be truthful the little bit of OCD that I might have comes full out at bedtime! I can NOT sleep unless the bed is “in order” and here is the kicker….I truly feel stressed and anxious if Matt’s side is in disarray. Here are some basic rules and steps I do EVERY night like a crazy person to assure a good nights rest….

1. The covers must be tucked in at the foot of the bed on BOTH sides!

2. When you fold back the covers they need to be neatly folded but but…the duvet must be just right so that when I get cold I can easily reach down and pull it up. I am so weird… I even do a “test run” to see if I could reach it in my sleep!

3. The covers must be even on both sides….like…one side of the bed can’t be hanging over while the other is short. You guys this is crazy but deep inside I swear I can tell if things are lopsided and it stresses me out!

SO there I have told you just how weird I am, it is like a “ritual” if you will!! Matt thinks it (and me) is so weird but he deals. And don’t even get me started on showering and how I have to do the same thing each morning in the same order! haha Do you have any weird bedtime rituals?

    OMG – I am right there with you on the bedtime routine!!! HA!! My husband thinks I'm CRAZY!! The first week we were married I thought he was going to call it quits right then! 🙂 I'm glad I'm not the only crazy one!It's so bad that if I wake up in the middle of the night I will get out of bed and walk around to his side and fix his side of the bed just so I can go back to sleep! 🙂 Crazy – I know! Showering, is just as bad. I have to start with washing my hair, then conditioning it, then washing my body and all of my stuff has to be in a certain order. It's so bad my husbad uses the guest bathroom. :/Erin

    I am very ritualistic as well. Everything must be perfect down to the pillow placement and space between me and Porter. Sheets must be tucked in at the bottom too. Aren't we weird?

    Nicole, I do the exact same thing every night. Ryan gets sooo ticked off. If someone else makes our bed, I have to go back and re-do it because I can't sleep if it isn't "just right". Maybe it's a girl thing? At least I'm not alone. I'm going to have Ry read this:)

    I have to sleep facing the sewn end of the pillow case. I hate facing the open end because it gets all bunched up. A perfect world would have pillow cases sewn at BOTH ends. 😉
