My husband and I were TV buddies when we were first married. The two of us would sit on the couch together to watch our favorite shows. Four kids later, it is a very rare occasion when we get to cuddle that way. Around 10:30 p.m., I am finally free of dishes, cleanup, laundry, school notes, etc. That's my time to plop on the couch and watch any TV show without singing puppets or wise guy cartoon characters. My husband is usually happily snoring away on the recliner as I surf the channels for my kind of show.
Since I'm in a teasing kind of mood today, I want to share with you a time when my tired hubby and I got to sit on the couch like the old days. After being with the kids for hours and hours, I look forward to having any kind of adult conversation. So sitting with my husband, I started to talk about all sorts of things that were on my mind. He would make the occasional comment and I kept going with my ramble. About 5 minutes into this one-sided conversation, I started to feel a tightness and little pain in my chest. Nervous, I share this information with my husband. All is quiet. I look up to see that he is back in hubby snoring world, clueless that his wife may be having a medical moment. Of course, I nudged him awake and gave him a little piece of my mind. During my rant, my chest pain disappeared. Half awake, he probably didn't understand why I was getting all in a huff about a pain that most likely was indigestion. I tell him that my knight in armor was back in the castle when princess me was in distress. He is sick of hearing this story:)
I have to mention that his response time in other situations is pretty quick. You should have seen my husband fly down the stairs to try and catch the cable guy when our reception was screwed up. He zoomed up the driveway to get the cable guy before he pulled out. Sometimes you have to wonder about men and their priorities! All in all, I love him snoring and awake. Since I run the house anyway, I can see myself calling 911, getting dressed and warming up the car before waking him up to say, "Get me to the hospital, please!!"
Have a great day!
