So last night I slept on the couch. For many people they would think that means that my wife and I are fighting, but in this case, that just isn't so. So let me explain, we have a sleep number bed, I love my sleep number bed, and somehow the air chamber that is on my side of the bed wont hold air any more. I called sleep number and they are sending me a new chamber. Well instead of sleeping on the bed that cannot support my body, I decided to sleep on the couch. My wife was appalled, "Why would you rather sleep on the couch instead of kick one of the kids out of their beds and have them sleep on the couch?"

After the night was over, I now have the reason, I love sleeping on the couch now and then.

It fits me perfectly. Planned that when I bought it. I recommend lying on couches at the furniture store versus sitting on them. Gives you a better idea of how the couch will fit into you lifestyle, and if it is comfortable in the prone position, it will probably be just as comfortable when sitting.

The night stand (coffee table) is in the perfect position. at my arm versus next to my head.

It is an adventure. Kind of felt like I was camping.

I didn't have anyone putting their cold feet on me in the middle of the night, or pushing me when I was snoring, or keeping the light on when I was ready to go to sleep. I was by myself abe to sleep however I felt was necessary.

I love the life that I have, especially my bedroom and my sleep number bed. It is a place that we can relax and any number of other things that come up in the bedroom, but for occasional circumstances, I really don't mind camping out on the couch.

When I was a kid an old man that I respected very much once told me that the key to sleepless nights is to change your surroundings. so if you wake up in the middle of the night, and can't go back to sleep, go get on the couch or sit in an easy chair for 5 minutes, and you will be back to sleep in no time. I have not really had many sleepless nights since. and that was over 20 years ago.

If I were to have any serious problems sleeping, I would just turn on the Home and Garden channel. I am sure that would the boredom would set in quickly.

I actually like sleeping on the couch too. I can't quite explain the appeal. If I'm having trouble sleeping, I'll go sleep on the couch. I guess part of the appeal is the tv in the living room. I like to fall asleep to law and order or CNN.
