Lora OR doing the dishes???

Lately, I have read just for a few minutes after climbing into bed. Therefore, Ian has fallen asleep just a few minutes before me. Several nights in a row, after I close my book and lay down to sleep, Ian has wrapped his arm around me and said, "Goodnight, Lora, I love you." Now normally this would be an "Awwww, how sweet," but you have to realize that Ian talks in his sleep so I know that he is not consciously expressing love--it is just his dreams talking.

Well the other night, I closed my book as usually, climbed under the sheets and snuggled up to Ian. He very clearly says, "I love you, Lora...almost as much as not doing the dishes." I was laughing so hard that it woke him up and I told him what he said. His reply? "It totally made sense in my head a few seconds ago and it was a compliment!" I guess I have asked him to do the dishes too often around here.

I love sleep-talking!

I love sleep talking too! 2 of my favorite people that I shared a room with did it--first Katie, then Brandon. It never fails to make me laugh because you never know what's going to come out!

awesome!!! I say some of the greatest stuff in my sleep - actually, I think if I was half as funny in real life as my sleep, I'd be the life o'the party - as it is, I'm kind of dull. Anyways, Aileena could tell you some funny stuff - maybe I'll get her to blog about it.
