I have been waiting to write this post since 5:00 am this morning. Let me explain. Out internet was out for a couple days so the butt crack repair man showed up about 10 minutes ago. Finally! Now I can ask for your opinion on the matter that has plagued me all day.
So just out of curiosity, do any of you find it acceptable that my husband sets 3 alarms which go off from 5-5:30 every morning sometimes semi-simultaneously and sometimes within 1 minute of each other. Not only do the alarms go off and off and off and off because he snoozes, but I have to wake him up to tell him to turn them off because he sleeps through them. Is this fair? Am I crazy to dream of the days when we can have separate bedrooms? Or am I being unfair because he gets up so early everyday and I get to sleep in everyday? Should I be more lenient or should I make him start sleeping on the couch?
To add to this annoyance is the fact that my body has now adjusted to the early morning awakening. What I mean is, everyday, even the weekends, I spontaneously wake up at 5 and have a very hard time falling asleep till around 6. I am programmed! Does anyone have a solution? This morning I considered throwing the alarm across the room and listening with glee as it splintered into a million tiny plastic pieces. There has to be an alternative! And no, smothering my husband with my pillow is not the solution I am looking for. I really do love him. I just hate him from about 5 am to 6 am.
So everyone...fix it. I have tried yelling, kicking, begging, pleading, bribing and everything I can think of to change the situation. If you knew me at all in high school you know that I am stubborn. Imagine that same level of stubbornness and multiply it by 50 and that equals my husband. He is set on setting 3 alarms and pissing me off every morning. There has got to be a better solution than separate bedrooms!
