Well, maybe.  I came across this lovely article on the history of people sleeping in beds.

Well, technically, on people sleeping together.


Though - yeah, sex, too. Apparently, it's not really until the latter half of the 1800s, the Victorian period in Britain and to some extent here in the United States, that it became more accepted to sleep alone.

I think, though, that this might not have been the case in the West, as 'civilization'- and its rules -  was slower to catch up there.

So I give you "The Once-Common Practice of Communal Sleeping". To keep warm. To talk about things that you couldn't talk about in public.

And, well, you know . . .

Exhausted. Woke up in the middle of the night with abdominal cramps that a.) had nothing to do with my period and b.) lasted so long I fell asleep in the bathroom waiting for them to pass. Nearly hit my head on the vanity when I woke up and stumbled back to bed. Then got woken up in the middle of a REM cycle to get up and go to work.

Cheerfully, I did not kill myself or anyone else when I drove there. (Having a car is still weird.) And I drove because The Parents ended up having a SURPRISE! Grandma-estate issue that no one knew about until this last Tuesday and had to drive to Iowa to take care of it. And their terrible dog has bitten every other possible dog sitter, so I get to take off work early and go let him out. Sigh.

I wish I actually had the drive or interest to drink. Because I feel like I should really want a bucket of booze right now.

I do need a blood pressure pill though.

I forgot how much reading school is. Which is kinda hilarious given what I do. Ah, well.

I did get the bulk of my weekly reading done yesterday. I just need to finish two articles (one of which would be super interesting if the author could just find the thesis and stop talking around it) and follow up with some of the in-class participation stuff. I think my Sundays and Tuesdays are reserved for school, while Monday/Wednesday/Friday are going to be assigned gym days.

Maybe I shouldn't get a cat. I am never going to be fucking home ever again.

My shoulder is also cranky because I did extra swimming. Which. Not fair.
