{No Eraser} What I wake up to in my bed....

This is my view most nights when I am drifting off to sleep...

More proof....

No - Harvey being the thing I wake up to is NOT the point of the post. 
Talk about anti-climatic... I would be the worst blogger ever if that was it..read on...

But its obvious Harvey Dent is a bed hog.

I can't say it's his fault. We raised him to be a cuddle bug. 

But he was also like 55 lbs lighter at the time & didn't take up much room. 

Here he is now at 2 years old & about 65 lbs... & loves to be right up with his mommy & daddy. 

His preferred place to be?  On our pillows. 

Every night, its a rush to get to bed before him.
Or if he is already there, you have to take off running like someone is at the door & then throw a toy & RUN FOR YOUR LIFE back to the bed before he sails over top everything & tries to get the spot back.

Or you can just count it as a bonus workout when he lays there like a 65 lb. slug & you have to slide him over to where you want him to be. He will literally just let you shove, pull, lift, whatever to him & he's just like, "I'm on the bed - I can touch you - I'm good"

So, I wake up in the middle of the night - 4:00am to be precise - & see something that made me jolt up.

Here's the climatic part if you were waiting...

I see Ricky standing on his side of the bed with a HUGE OBJECT in his hands, being hoisted up really high.

Now, I ask you to think about waking up out of a dead sleep & see a shadowed figure holding something large over top of you...

Straight out of a horror movie!  Or one of those Law & Order shows. I wouldn't know - I've never seen one but I think everyone else knows it has something to do with crimes - right?  I think I'm right.

My years of martial arts training kicks in ... & I just basically almost roll off the bed & nearly scream.  Thank you Kung-Fu instructors for the security you have given me.

I did get my voice under me to finally say,

Because if someone wants to kill you in your sleep, the decent thing is to ask & hope for a clear answer first....

... except Ricky wasn't trying to kill me.  Whew!  That's always nice.

But he is standing there with a large object in his hands...

& down on the bed it goes.

A TV tray.

In his spot... completely open... laying on its side...at 4 am.

Turn your head sideways.  That's what I see laying next to me in bed.

& all I hear from him, "I don't want Harvey getting my spot"


Apparently this is Ricky's trick.

If Ricky has to get up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water, go to the bathroom, or let Bruno out (a whole other story - our dog wont go outside unless lights are on in the enclosed room - #spoiled) he told me that he takes the tray & lays it in his spot & across his pillow so Harvey doesn't' jump up & snag his place.

Pretty smart.

No less terrifying when you experience it.

Now, it's nothing for me to wake up & see a TV tray laying on its side on my husband's pillow.

Life is fun sometimes.

Just wait till Ricky wakes up & sees a vacuum cleaner laying on my pillow one day.


  1. Oh that is too funny! I always have a fear that Gary will have a nightmare and try to punch me in his sleep lol! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. That's funny! I'll admit my heart started beating a little faster when I read the part about Ricky holding that large object up over you. ;-)

  3. This is a hilarious story! I love the image of you guys throwing a toy and running to get to the bed before Harvey :) I think I would have screamed if I woke up to see someone standing over me like that.

  4. That is so funny! I would have been scared out of my mind too, but it totally would work! I thought maybe he was carrying Harvey Dent and something was wrong, had my heart all a flutter!

  5. I laughed through this entire post. Too funny. I pictured the whole thing in my head! But when I first read the title I thought, please don't let it be a bat, please don't let it be a bat. haha

  6. oh my gosh that is SO funny! and I can just envision it in my mind. That first picture of Harvey is hilarious. I hope you have a king size bed!!!

  7. Girl, you crack me up. Life must be a riot at your house. That Harvey Dent is one lucky dog!!!

    Fortunately, Lucy is a lot smaller and much easier to move I'm sure. Thank goodness! :)

  8. oh my gosh this is hilarious!! my oldest cat used to like to lay on my pillow as a kitten but she's over it now. and cats are a lot smaller than dogs, obviously. KC hates when they lay on him because they are like mini heaters lol

  9. That would be so scary to wake up to! How funny. I always try to beat my dogs to the bed too, one of them in particular. But if she's there first, she just looks up at you while you slide her around. No way will she get up!

  10. I laughed out loud through this whole story - so funny! Brady loves our pillows, too :)

  11. This post totally cracked me up!! What we do because of our fur babies!!! Lol!!'

  12. those fur babies--always up to something. love the trick to save the spot-ha!! my dog loves to immediately go to my spot even though he has the whole bed!

  13. hahahaha! Cleo tried to sleep in out bed while Kev was out of town bus she kept shaking the bed. I lasted about 20 minutes and she went back into the hall.

  14. As much as ones body's adaptable, and so ought to the mattress possibly be. It should have the ability to comply with every body's contours, so that the snooze equilibrium along with comfort and ease is usually experienced. Lightly, the item needs to have versatility, possibly be adaptable, therefore you have to be able to adapt the particular mattress. Great thing to wake up to
