The golden years. Pardon the pun.

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Ok , married ladies. Oops, ladies married to men. I have some wonderful friends who are married who don't fit in that category. Times are a'changing.
If you haven't already found out...guys don't make it through the night.
I didn't equate my "old" dad's nocturnal visits to the loo with the inevitable happenings to the man in my life.
I don't know why, I should have known.
Geeze, Louise!
I don't think I have gotten more than 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep in several years unless one of us went away for something.
I tease him that sometimes he looks like hell.
Argh, so do I.
I feel bad for him but me too.
His brother's wife and I have been having these conversations. The guys are 2 peas in a pod including being non-compliant diabetics down to not refilling the same medications or visiting doctors.
She took the plunge and asked hers to sleep elsewhere for a while. Said she's be getting the best sleep ever.
I am jealous.
My mind has gone back to black and white 1960's New Rochelle.
Maybe Rob and Laura Petrie had it right.
Twin beds.

    What do you mean can't make it through the night? if you are talking about number 1, he may need to get his prostrate checked.

    For sure, twin beds in the same room would do it for me!

    My parents got twin beds in their later years. Still shared the same bedroom, just separate beds. Getting good rest is important for both of you, so whatever works.

    My poor DH has to put up with my unsociable hours, I am lucky to sleep right through and am often awake in the small hours, for example, now.
We have a king sized bed with a latex mattress, very little disturbance, and sometimes I wonder where my sweetie is, but there he is, on his side of the bed!

I wonder though, does your DH need to get his prostate checked? Just a thought....

    I sometimes have to go every 2 hours and sometimes my hubby has to get up to go once. We usually can go back to sleep. I guess we are lucky.

    Ha! Don't I know this story. Between that, and Mike's snoring (which sounds like I'm sleeping right next to a chipper), Mike decided to sleep elsewhere. At first it bothered me, but actually I sleep so much better and our true quality time is while we are awake. True confessions. emoticon

    Pretty hilarious, actually . . . and we recall the interrupted sleep with small babies as well. What's the sweet spot: there had to have been a decade or so in there somewhere, right?

    No room to talk here. I'm sure I disturbed ex's sleep more than he did mine, back in the day. emoticon

    I'm 76 and we are still in one bed. Sure, lots of night trips but it beats growing apart. We are both loving life to the full.

  Omg, can i relate!!! Mine falls asleep on the couch, comes in, frequently wakes me up and then has to get up again later to relieve himself. If he doesn't, I do. Right now I have been up since 2 30. Thanks DH.
