Asleep at the wheel…

…or the TV, or the desk…anywhere is good right about now.

I’m starting to notice an issue. With my wife out of town, I am tending to stay awake longer that I usually do, and in the process getting less sleep. I’m honestly having trouble figuring it out, but think I have a possible reason.

My wife.

You see, Brenda has told me that she has a difficult time sleeping in our bed along if I am away. I never really thought that the door would swing both ways, but swing it does.  If I am travelling, or on the couch, no problemo. I go out like a light. But, in my own bed, where there is now a void, it’s tougher than I thought.  I wil just stare at the wall, or the light under the door, and try to nod off, but I seem to toss and turn a lot lately. I may be ready for of more of those special tablets. As my youngest daughter says: “Daddy! Lunesta is coming!!!”

Do people really need each other so much that they cannot regularly function without them? I’m starting to think so. After all, since Brenda and the kids left, I just stare at my plate and wait for the food to appear. This does not work very well…c’mon food! Show up! It works for the DOGS!!!! Why not me???
