Sleep, please!

Dear Hubby,

I am sitting here, bracing my head against my palm, while trying to type and not fall asleep. Every night for the last four nights, you have managed to wake me up multiple times during the night.  It was adorable that you subconsciously needed to cuddle at 4 a.m., but I had just gotten to sleep from when you woke me up at 2 coming to bed.  I really need my sleep or my alter ego is going to erupt from my psyche and I just can’t be held accountable for the things I say at 3:30 a.m. or the look I give you at 7:45 a.m. when the alarm goes off when you don’t plan on getting up until 8:30 a.m. I strongly urge you to to enjoy all the comforts of our guest room.

Dear Darling Kitties,

I have dreamed of duck taping you to the wall.  I know the hubby comes to bed later than me, but this is not an invitation to jump on me, lay on my face, or to attack my feet because they are moving around under the sheets.  What is up with the hairballs at 3 a.m.?   Do you have to do it right next to my side of the bed?  I would run and hide if you wake me up tonight.

I am getting my sleep tonight come hell or high water!

    Been there. Not anymore, after 22yrs together, we each have our room to sleep. As for the cats, no more. I love them, but outside only. I love all animals but not in the house anymore. I wish you a good night sleep!

    Been where you are (actually, still am!) only for me it’s the dogs. And they take up WAY more room than a cat! I feel for you and hope you can catch some zzzzs for sure tonight!
