I’m not really sure what is up with my husband lately, but he sure has been jumpy – in his sleep. lol He hasn’t yelled in several nights, but two nights ago, he made such a funny cough/sneeze/choking sound that I laughed for about 5 minutes before I could calm down enough to go to sleep.
Then, every time I moved after that, he asked me if I was “okay.” Stop talking to me, I was just getting comfortable and I don’t feel like answering. :) In all the movement, he would suddenly gasp and jerk awake, making me want to smile every single time (I was too tired to crack a smile).
Sometime in the middle of the night, I was awakened by someone (guess who?) talking gibberish. The only word I understood was “pearl.” Don’t ask. Neither of us has any idea.
Last night, when falling asleep, he made a strange noise and immediately asked me if he was talking in his sleep. Apparently, he woke himself up. That wasn’t the end of it though. He did a whole body twitch somewhere around 2 am. This twitch was so violent that it startled me awake and I did the whole “I’m so scared so I’ll just inhale quickly and loudly in one huge gasp.” It’s funny, because he so rarely scares me when he yells and wakes me up, but one big jerk of the bed and I almost have a heart attack. My gasp resulted in him gasping and then apologizing over and over (he does this when half asleep…or tells me he loves me a million times. I find both kinda cute. ;)). Since he awoke me, I decided now was a good time to go down and use the restroom. I not so quietly climbed out of bed and proceeded to walk around the foot of the bed towards the door. I’m not quite sure what my husband was doing, but his arm was sticking out in my pathway and I ran into it. This caused him to have a mini heart attack (HUGE gasp and a little flailing) which he followed with “I didn’t know you got up.” I’m not sure where he was in those 5 seconds, but I think he might have already been asleep. :) Since I had run into his arm, I assumed he was also on his way out of bed, but when I returned to the room, he didn’t even stir, so evidently not.
Here’s hoping that the following nights are spent in blissful sleeping. No more mini heart attacks!
