I have to give a story before I tell you what happened the other night so you will be able to truly appreciate what I go through.
(Imagine the Wayne's World "travel back in time" or "dream sequence" screen waves.)
Shortly after we were married, Hubby and I went to a college volleyball game with my sis and a group of friends. The game was great and we all had a blast, but it was long and by the time we left I was so ready to hop in bed.
Our group had all driven in 2 cars, so as we were walking to the parking lot Hubby asks everyone if they want to come over to our place for a late night movie.
Now, normally I am a total late-night person. At this particular time in my life I worked graveyard at the college and actually the friends that we were with were my co-workers.
Back to my story. I looked at Hubby weird and then just shrugged. I could always fall asleep on the couch if I was too tired.
Everyone was in on the idea so about 6 people jaunted over to our little apartment for movie night and snacks. I can't even remember what we watched and you will understand why in just a little bit.
MAYBE 20 minutes into the movie Hubby went into the bedroom. I thought he was just going to change into some comfy clothes. It didn't take too long for me to notice that he hadn't returned to join the group. Slyly- so as not to be noticed I snuck into the bedroom to see if I was going to be getting a little hanky panky.
He was ASLEEP!
He was the one that invited people to our house. I was the one that was tired, but he was the one in blissful slumber. I think not!
Being the kind hostess I was I stayed AWAKE while Hubby rested. Once the movie was over I grabbed a blanket and started in on an even LONGER night of sleep on the couch.
The next morning Hubby woke up and had no idea what he had done wrong. Umm, HE invited people over, HE didn't tell me he was tired and going to bed, and HE got to sleep!
Now, I am sure that you are wondering why I didn't wake him up. That's a pretty easy question to answer- I TRIED! Truly I did. But, he comes up swinging if you are too rough trying to wake him up and he was already in a very deep sleep when I found him.
This has actually been a source of contention on and off throughout our marriage. Hubby will make decisions that will totally effect me without thinking about me. I am sure I NEVER do that to him. Right? Are you hearing me people? I am the PERFECT wife. Really I am! Okay, maybe not really, but I have never invited people over then left him to entertain whilst I catch up on sleep.
(Back to the present day.)
Sunday night we went on a walk as a family. It was a beautiful evening and spending time together on Easter was perfect! When we rounded the corner, the last stretch before home we noticed a car in our driveway. As we approached we noticed it was our friend, Ken. His wife is in Texas at the moment, so he was stopping by just to drop a few things off. Hubby invited him in for a visit. (I am sure you are seeing where this is going.) Well, we get inside, Ken sits down on one couch, Hubby sits on the other and I sit down too, ready for a nice visit- the 3 of us!
Oh, heavens no! Hubby grabbed his computer and started tinkering on it. Umm, Hubby, hello- our friend is here! Let's visit... It was a little awkward. Yes, totally love Ken, he is great. But it is weird, don't you think?
Sidenote- told hubby about this post and he wasn't too happy. He said that he had totally forgotten about it and was upset that I was bringing it up to make fun of him. Am I making fun of him? Nope- just thinking that the differences between men and women are pretty funny!
