I don't know what the issue is, but for some reason I don't like to be on a different floor than Sam and Scooter if they are asleep. In the house we just moved out of, the bedrooms were upstairs and the living room was on the main floor. I HATED being downstairs if they were up in bed- watching TV, reading...pretty much anything.
I've always loved to sit and read at night when I can't sleep (well, pretty much anytime, not just when I can't sleep- I love to read!). Last night was one of those nights...after unpacking all evening, I just couldn't sleep. So I wandered out to the living room and snuggled onto the couch with a new book from the library. And was perfectly content, knowing that I was on the same floor as my boys.
