Late Night TV

We've had lots of rain here lately. We need it so badly to fill up our lakes - we need it so we can have some water, you know, to drink. To brush our teeth. To have some green grass.

Well, last night was one of those nice, big thunderstorms. It woke me up at about 2:00 am and I couldn't go back to sleep. I lay there for awhile listening to the thunder and watching the lightening and being a big scariedy cat. Then I woke Jim up.

I have to explain here that Jim usually sleeps on the couch. No, it isn't a "stop touching me" issue or a "then you can just sleep on the couch" issue - it's a lifestyle choice. He likes to watch TV until he falls asleep - anything he wants - without me changing the channels. I've learned to not let it bother me and I usually get up about 2:00 or 3:00 or 4:00 and wake him up so he can get in the bed. So, if it is storming at 2:30, he already has the TV on and is usually watching the weather. But last night was different, Jim fell asleep before me and was already in the bed sound asleep.

So, at 2:15 am I woke up my sweet hubby, he watched the weather with me, said, "Is that enough?" Then he turned over and went right to sleep.

It's nice to have someone to always depend on, isn't it?

Yeah, but it stinks to have satellite so that you can't watch ANYTHING at 2:30 a.m. when there's a storm out. I wasn't too much of a scaredy cat, but I was WIDE awake! Troy flipped channels with me for a few minutes -- I had to take his glasses off of him when I turned the TV off since he was already asleep! :-)

I was sound asleep through the whole thing...the joy of earplugs!

Nathaniel-techy-geek-husband does have one of those weather radios though...I did hear it go off sometime in the night. I just rolled over and went back to sleep. I figure if it's something big, Nathaniel will wake me!

Our Memorial Day was so beautiful here wasn't it? It was nice that the storms didn't come through until that late. It woke me up too, but not for too long. It also woke up our girls but my husband slept right through it.
