I received this tip idea from a generous wife (thanks, Tonya!) and thought I would pass it on to y’all. She was thoughtful, flexible and caring. Way to go.
Last evening my husband had a stressful couple of hours … he came home pretty tightly wound. About 2am my husband got up not able to sleep because his mind kept wandering back to the [evening]. So… at 2am I just let him talk. We talked about the [events] and a few other things, listened to the storm outside and before I knew it he was snoring.
My point is this… yeah I could have complained about him waking me but it didn’t hurt me to just “have a chat” with him at 2am and let him relieve some pressure. Sometimes we are more inconvenienced by them then we should be and a little chat in the middle of the night is just what the Dr. ordered.
