It's Only Funny on SNL

So someone decided a few weeks ago that waking me up at midnight to make the bed (not change the sheets, mind you. To make the bed, you know the one I was already sleeping in.) was a fabulous idea. Apparently, he couldn't go to bed until we re-tucked everything in, neatened the sheets... and then proceed to pull back the sheets to get in, naturally un-doing everything we just did.

reminds me of something....

I think I've mentioned that Mala likey her sleep. And after 10 years of marriage, I'd assume he'd know this fact as well. Moreover, don't wakey Mala to do housework. EVER. Especially inane, and INSANE, midnight chores. Seriously, don't wake me up unless the house is on fire. And by that, I mean only the part of the house I'm sleeping in. Just let me sleep if it's the other part of the house. Got it?

So you can imagine how thrilled I was when he woke me up to partake in his insanity.

In other news; guess who got a dozen roses and one, yes ONE, round trip ticket to anywhere!

I like my sleep, too. Back in the day (before becoming obsessed with blogging) I might fall asleep on the couch and my wife would wake me up and tell me to go to bed. WHY?? I’m SLEEPING HERE!!! She would say, I miss you when you aren’t in bed with me. Your warmth and scent. So I told her to take my socks to cuddle with. Remember, let sleeping dogs lie.

I still say you should have held out for TWO r/t tickets to anywhere. Next time! (and you know there will be a next time)

Coffey - sending her to bed with your stinky socks... that'll learn her.

Bev - I don't leave for another 3 weeks. That's PLENTY of time for him to mess up again.

I'm like that about my sheets and covers, too. BUT it's just me sleeping in the bed so it's okay. Although, I have been known to make the kids make up my bed before we go to bed. What? MoTY, I know:)

Where are you gonna go on your trip?

Harmony said...

My husband would NEVER do that. Not because he is considerate, mind you. But because he doesn't do anything around the house..ever! Well, sometimes he'll sweep up an area and then leave the broom and dust pile in a corner somewhere. "Just don't look over there" yeah, I think that only works for him. *sigh*

Have fun on your trip!

My bed only gets made when I change the sheets. As long as it's tucked in at the foot of the bed, I'm good.

MtnMama said...

wow... someone who did that to me would be someone with a death wish. Although since becoming a parent, my concept of a good night's sleep has radically changed, and I always loved to sleep. Even though I know that I will miss the cuddling, I dream of the day when I can sleep on my own schedule again, and uninterupted by visiting munchkins.

OBMJ - The good thing about being a parent is you can give the kids all sorts of laborious tasks under the guise of 'teaching your children'. Of course, most of the time it's just easier to do it yourself.

Harmony - Sometimes I wish he would be more of a slacker and less anal-rentitive. Seriously! A happy medium would be nice.

Frank - I admit, I need everything tucked in or it drives me crazy. But I make sure all is tucked in at reasonable hours.

MtnMama - If I was awake enough, he may have had his wish granted.
