Consider this a piece of advice, and feel free to print this post off and hand it to your spouse. It’s something I discovered last night, and felt it to be worth sharing. For the sake of your marriage, please take these words to heart. Whatever you do, no matter the circumstances:
DO NOT WAKE YOUR SLEEPING WIFE.
Can someone please explain to me why my husband would wake ME to tell me that HE is going to bed?
Ummm…ooookay…and I needed to know that why? I still can’t figure it out. I remember asking, or slurring, ‘Why are you telling me this?’
He responded with something about me being ungrateful and I certainly wouldn’t need breakfast since I bit his head off. I deserved that.
He called to say hello this morning and I had to laugh as I asked just why he woke me with news that it was now time for HIM to sleep. His response?
‘I guess I thought you’d want to know.’
Nope. I didn’t.
‘Well, then I guess I was thinking you would call me today and ask why I didn’t say goodnight?’
Nope. I wouldn’t.
‘Well, then…get over it,’ he said laughing.
I can do that.
Not before sharing with everyone on the world wide web. So, let’s review. When your spouse is sleeping and has 3 hours left before the alarm blasts her awake, please remember this:
No need to wake her with news that you are about to get a solid 10 hours of REM sleep, because guess what? She doesn’t care. Even better, she wouldn’t know.
Best to just assume the fetal position and drift off without a big pre-sleep announcement.
If you know what’s good for you.
That is all.
