Clearly I’m All Woman

Dang!  My husband is sitting next to me and solidly asleep on the couch.  My daughter’s television show is blaring, the house is full of fumes from the staining going on in our basement, I’m typing away on my computer and he is a bear in hibernation.  My husband can sleep anywhere and it usually only takes a minute or two for him to make it to ‘the other side.’  How do men do this?  There are days when a sleeping pill taken at 2:00 a.m. in the middle of a quiet and pitch-black room can’t get the job done for me.  This is one area where I honestly wish I was more like a man.  I’d be a lot cuter if I got as much sleep as my husband.

    I can fall asleep in the dentist chair. My husband likes my ability to sleep about as much as you appreciate your husband’s. Maybe both spouses just aren’t supposed to be able to sleep. Only one of us gets to indulge. Gosh, I’m so glad it’s me (sorry I’m not showing much empathy here am I…How’s this…that darn husband of yours, these moments are why cast iron frying pans were made).

    Been there, done that. It stinks to head into a sleepless cycle. It used to be worse for me than it is right now, however. I can nod off quite quickly but I’m paying the price with perimenopausal symptoms which all suck. Such is life.
    I can say without a doubt, give it time because it will change.

    It must be all the hard work that he does that is wearing him out.

    ME TOO. This is pretty much my #1 complaint! I don’t even care about the peeing standing up crap. I want to fall into sleep like a man!
