A couple of nights ago I went to bed a little too "early". As in, being a night owl, it was around 2 a.m. when I rolled into bed. I get to surfing the net or reading and time just flies away from me! So, I was really, really tired and slept very heavily. Apparently, somehow in the night I flipped my alarm clock on so that it went off at 3:30 a.m. (it was still set for then from Black Friday a week ago. I only use it for special times since my kids get me up every day at 6:45 or 7 a.m. without fail.) It screamed out it's blaring, obnoxious sound and King Jo apparently woke up and said, "Turn it off. Did you turn it off?" I hit it, meaning I only hit snooze, and it went off 9 minutes later. He'd ask again, "Did you turn it off?" I'd mumble something like yes and so we'd go back to sleep. This happened 5 times before he came crashing over my side of the bed and unplugged that thing! I guess that all those times I had answered yes, I had really been sleeping. The way I remember it is that I was dreaming that I was trying to upload pictures to my blog. I remember feeling for the alarm clock in the dark, still asleep, but in my dream it was the camera and I was trying to hit buttons to upload pictures. When I would reply "yes" I was thinking that I had gotten a picture uploaded. I had no clue that the alarm clock was going off until it was unplugged by an unhappy hubby who accidentally knocked over my lamp in the process in the dark. (The lamp didn't break). Ali even slept through it all; she must take after Mommy! Her toddler bed is in our room for a while since we've been working on getting Jer to sleep completely through the night, putting him in his own room.
This humorous story reveals that I often dream about things I've done throughout the day, and that I have been known to sleep talk on many different occasions! I also sleep very hard when I'm really tired and sometimes even a screaming baby doesn't wake me right away! This story also reveals some of those interesting aspects of living with another person in this thing called marriage. Sorry Sweetie!
