I walk the line...
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night...

The sidewinder sleeps tonight...

How's that saying go? "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry" or something similar? Dunno how mice play into it, but I do know it happens for men (and women... I'd hate to sound sexist as we all have the innate ability to go awry).

Last night, Katie fell asleep really early on the couch while watching TV. After about an hour and a half, I gave up on watching TV and thought it would be a good idea to have her move upstairs into bed.

Not so great a plan.

After struggling to wake her up (I'm not much for carrying anything or anybody up two flights of stairs), I got her upstairs and into bed.

And she was, of course, wide awake after that.

You'd think I'd have learned by now to leave well enough alone. If she's asleep, let her stay that way. Even if it almost seems cruel and unusual to leave her in the living room on a couch amidst all our wall rehab gear.

Next time, I don't care if I have to cover her with a dropcloth, I'm leaving her downstairs.

Some of my best sleep of the night is in the recliner downstairs. Just be a nice hubby next time and cover her with a blanket before you head upstairs.

Couch sleeping is some of my best sleep. Don't feel bad in the least.

LEAVE ME ON THE COUCH!!!

When I go through my bouts of insomnia, I sometimes fall asleep for 15 minutes here and there.If I get woken I turn into a monster!

Hilly

Oh yeah, I love it when I fall asleep on the couch or the recliner because that means I am dead ass tired...and nobody better touch me! But you are sweet for worrying about her :).

cover her in a drop cloth- hee hee.

Well I definitely see where the majority vote resides. Katie stays where she falls next time.

Mocha

Katie stays where she falls is pure poetry, man. Market that stuff. You'll make a killing.

I'm surprised she didn't growl at you like a monster and rip you to shreds for waking her. How nice of her.

kapgar

It wasn't growling. She whimpered and was constantly whining, "why did you wake me up?" And here I stuck to my "our bed is much more comfortable" BS mantra.
