    I woke him up asking him what did he have going off.
    Later, we both realized this is recurring, and I pointed out that I keep asking him to do something about it.
    I wasn't angry.
    He argued.
    I said, "Put the shoe on the other foot. What if it were something of mine and waking you up?"
    He said, "I'd have to hear it first."
    I was angry
    People that can't hear shouldn't use it against those that do! It's reversing a handicap and I feel challenged!
    Many years ago, dh kept waking me with his snoring, during the ENTIRE night. He'd let out a big snore and I would jerk awake. What made me angry, was he'd DENY snoring! Well, I finally decided I'd had enough . . . so started sleeping with my knee up against his back. When he snored, I'd jerk awake and my knee would bump against him. Next morning, he was furious because I kept "kicking" him, all night long. Ahhhhh, revenge is sweeeeeet!!!!

    doggone it, but if I didn't have this fibromyalgia and turn every 10-15 minutes, I'd sure try that!
    I think I need a bullhorn to ask him what alarm is going off?
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    http://www.harriscomm.com/catalog/de...p?cPath=42_123 has vibrating alarms for the deaf and hard of hearing. Yes, they are spendy, but if they let you sleep when he has to get up so early...just sayin'!!

    My husband believes if he closes the kitchen cabinets, he'll die. I have to go around and constantly shut cabinet doors!

    That's true... he'll do just about anything for cheese. And Cheerios? Don't get between Leo & his Cheerios! And as for your lap... last night he slept up my chest & onto my shoulder... I can barely move today! LOL!

    Maybe between the two of us, we could still go to parties as Siamese twins without falling down on our quilty faces.
    Umm, but there is still the "klutz" factor.
    Mine...are you a klutz too?
    If you answer yes, I'm gonna get the dna test started immediately
    Mine is on the right... I wish it was the left because your right leg is used for pushing your sewing machine pedal & also the gas (& brake) pedals. So those are out for me.

    Yeah, we could do like a sack race with our bum legs in a bag & hop along together... sounds fun, eh?

    I didn't used to be a klutz but lately various body parts have decided do have minds of their own & act independant of the other parts... funky!

    NEW QUIRK ALERT: This just came to me yesterday. I know it's super weird, but here goes. If I'm looking at a magazine & there's a really icky picture, I can't let my fingers touch it. I don't know why...

    I have fallen and been hurt/bruised and even sprained a big toe!...10 times in the past two years!
    That's quite a lot I'd say.
    Much more than I want to.
