Last night, I was awakened several times from a sound sleep by bugs crawling on my arms. Now, I am a pretty heavy sleeper, and bugs landing on us as we sleep is not at all an unusual experience, as we don't have screens on our windows. These bugs were definitely crawling, not flying in and landing, however, and they disturbed me enough that I eventually chose to evacuate my bed. I grabbed my pillow and a spare sheet, and completed the night sleeping on the couch.
I perhaps need to mention here, for clarity, that Allen and I have separate beds. You really don't need to know that, except that you might be wondering why he wasn't bothered by the crawling bugs in the bed. He is an insomniac, and I, though a very sound sleeper, am a noisy sleeper, plus I move around a lot in my sleep. Because sharing a bed means that Allen gets no sleep, we have separate beds. TMI, I know, but I figured if I didn't explain, someone would ask about it.
So, this morning, I checked the bed, to see if I could figure out the source of the annoying bugs. I found the remnants of an ant nest between my sheets! The colony had already departed, but they left behind a few of their eggs (I presume these were duds?), so I knew they'd been there! Apparently, even the ants found my sleeping movements to be too much to live with.
I'm hoping for a more restful night tonight.
