Lights Out

An early night. It's 10:00 pm with nothing left to do. I check the kids, kiss the Hubbs and head to bed to read for a bit. The peace, was OH so welcomed. However, it was short lived. It wasn't 20 minutes and in staggers Honey.

Not wanting to stop where I was, I asked, "Ah, Honey are you going to ask me to shut the light?" As he's falling into bed he says, "well, Baby ya know?" I laughed at all of his grace and said to him, "yes, I know lots of things, but right now I'd like to know if I have to shut the light." With his eyes already closed, he giggled and threw his arm over me. I'm thinking, "Great!"

Before I found my place again on the page and read three lines, he was in REM. Yay for me. And, one more thing I know, I'm NOT shutting the light!

Question: How can a man, fall asleep in the living room with the TV screaming, lights blaring and uncovered without a problem? Then, come to bed where it's warm and quite with the glow of a bedside lamp and have a problem.

Answer: It's not a problem, he just wants to be a pain in the foot!

Yep a pain in the foot is it!

If my hubby falls asleep on the couch, he usually ends up staying there till morning and always sleeps better with noise going where as I have to sleep in the dark and no noise.

I'm thinking that pain is a lil' higher up than "foot" heeheehee. I seem to be the only one in the house who has trouble sleeping - everyone else could fall asleep standing up with a marching band stomping through. *what luck*

My hubby falls asleep on the couch, I go into the loungeroom sometime during the early hours, quietly turn off the TV and lights, and sneak back to bed ...not wanting to wake him. But ... the minute there is no noise or lights, guess who wakes up !!! Who can figure !!!
Again ... Men !!!
Take care, Meow
