More adventures of Becky, the sleep freak.

Remember this post?  The one that explained my nighttime adventures?  Well, they continue in my new house.

Except now, I REALLY can't figure out where I am.

The other night, I woke Shane up insisting that he look at something. I have no idea what that something was, but apparently I was pretty adamant that he look at it. Then I fell promptly asleep. Shane thought, "Oh no you don't!" So he decided to mess with me.

I would fall asleep, and he would get his best teasing voice and say, "Hey! Wake up! Don't go to sleep!" and I would get mad at him. He repeated the process about 100 times while I kept getting more and more angry. I might have called him a mean name. I wanted to pummel the living lights out of him (but I kept falling asleep). After a while, he said to me, "Yeah, it sucks to have someone wake you up in the middle of the night, doesn't it?"


So, knowing that my temper is short while I am asleep and not wanting to get attacked, he chose his method carefully on Wednesday night when he woke up to see me standing in the bedroom. I had no idea where I was. None. He could see me looking left to right, trying to find...something. So, instead of trying to piss me off, he decided he would give me a mission (and in so doing, he could a - enjoy teasing me while I was asleep, and b - see if he could get me to figure out where I was. He said to me, "I'm hot. Will you go turn on the air conditioner?"

I was more than happy to oblige. The only problem was I didn't know where to find the thermostat. I went in the hall and came back. I looked in his closet. Then I just stood there for a long time and tried to figure out where the thermostat was. Finally he gave me a clue: "Hey Becky, the thermostat is downstairs on the wall."

Oh yeah. I'm in THAT house. You know, the one that we've lived in for a month.

So, I went down and turned the air conditioner on then went back to bed. I felt a little stupid for getting lost in my house but was too tired to really care. I went right back to sleep, my mission fulfilled, and my husband greatly gratified that he was now much cooler and had teased his wife yet a little more.

Fun, fun times, I tell you!
