Poll question: Should I wake up my husband?
He crawled in bed at about 2 in the morning. I, on the other hand, have been awake since 7 o'clock this morning! I'm tired of being quiet!! Should I make some noise and wake him up, or be kind and let him sleep more? BTW, it is already 10 a.m. here.

:hi:

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. Be nice...let him sleep
I would sleep in today, but there is too much for me to do around the house. How's it going? :hi:

5. Yeah...that's probably what I'll do...
I'm doing great, thanks! The sound of rain is driving me crazy, though. I'm ready for some sunshine!! :hi:

4. If you wake him, he might withhold sex...
Or at least hold it alone for a while...

7. Middle ground-
Don't wake him up deliberately, but since he's had 8 hours
already it's cool to STOP trying to be extra quiet.

Do what you wanna do- if he wakes up, he wakes up.

9. sigh...
I already put my iPod earplugs in...listening to Sting....just to get that sound of rain out of my mind.

I'll be good.

Sometimes...sometimes it's hard to be good.

8. He's had 8 hours. That's enough. Anymore, and he will feel groggy when he does get up.n/t

10. Thanks...
He tells me he "stores sleep," even though I've told him, many times, that is scientifically impossible.

11. Crawl in there with him - there's no better place to be than a warm toasty bed on a rainy
Sunday morning...

12. Aww...what a sweet thought...
Unfortunately, I am a human cat door this morning. "Pumpkin" can't decide whether she wants to be inside or outside...inside or outside....*sigh*

15. That's funny - you all sound exactly like us
Most weekend mornings I get to lounge in bed with the lazy cat, and my wife gets up early to operate the door for the active cat. She also wears headphones until she hears us (me and lazycat) stirring, then she unleashes all the energy and things to say that have built up... :)

19. GMs indeed... Some people have just got it right

23. Do what you would want him to do with you if the situation were reversed
If you went to bed at 2am would you want to be jarred awake by loud noise? I say either let him sleep or wake him up by gently rubbing his arm and calmly telling him it's time to wake up. Loud noise wake up sucks!

26. I know all about temptation....
Like when my husband snores, I'm tempted to take the pillow and smother him with it. ;)
