On the Couch

I slept on the couch last night.  Why?  Because I was really mad at my husband. 

Why was I mad at him?  Because he was sleeping soundly and I couldn't fall asleep!

Irrational anger, of course, but when I'm that tired (and I was EXHAUSTED!  Almost fell asleep in the car on the way home from dinner), and I can't fall asleep I get super, super cranky.  HE was sleeping.  HE was hogging the blankets, HE wasn't having the same fits of uncomfortability that I was having.  So, I slept on the couch.

Weird thing is, the moment I got to the couch, I passed out (until my cat started licking my face anyhow).  I'm still tired this morning, and still cranky, but hoping I can turn it around.  We're headed to the coast and I'd really like to enjoy myself.

I want to hear about other people's irrational fits of anger at their significant others... helps me not to feel like a weirdo. =)

P.S.  Do any of you read Sleep Talking Man?  His wife has a LOT of patience!

There was one day that I went all day not talking to Carl because I thought he called me the "F" word. Turned out he called me "sucker". He wasn't sure why I was mad and didn't want to make it worse, so he let me stew in my anger all day before asking what was wrong, lol.
