Divided

Turns out buy 2015 most couples will be looking for homes with a flex suite. What is a flex suite you are probably asking? It is another term for a second master bedroom for your spouse! Getting a good nights rest is crucial, but the disturbance from you partner could be having a negative impact on your sleep. Snoring, using the restroom, tossing and turning, or my case....bedroom violence, yes, bedroom violence is causing a sleep deficit.


Since we can't have a flex suite, this is our so called "solution."

Here is a picture of how we have to set up the bedroom most nights. Instead of one bed nation, we have established two countries with the boarder running down the center of a once happy bed nation. WHY? Because I have some radical restless leg and arm syndrome that drove us to this set up. I actually gave my beautiful and loving wife a visible welt on her backside the other night because of a secret attack. Apparently my knee crossed the boarder around 0250am and I laid down a can of whoop a## on my wife's a##!! There was no communication between my brain and legs and all of a sudden, BANG, I knee'd her right in the ARSE! We have since talked and there is some peace but who knows when I will break the accord again.

Training has been going well the past two weeks in the lead up to Chicago in next weekend. The swimming has been my weak link as I swim by self everyday. From March to May I was on fire, swimming 4,500m most days. Now, even with the motivation of the incredible Michael Phelps, I'm lucky to get in 2,000m. It goes in two day cycles. Yesterday I pushed out a massive...1K, where as today I did 3,800 no problem and could have done more.

WOW - Poor Linds, she doesn't have much back there James you could break her! I think it's time to move the countries to a larger continent - the King size continent...LT (sorry I tried to go with LC but it just wasn't right) if you need some retaliatory moves you know where to come...

i've been trying hard to convince clay that we need a king size bed. it is not easy getting used to sleeping in the same bed as someone else.

LC, my hubby has definitely elbowed me a couple times...in the temple. He's asleep, of course.
