Why Can't He Sleep?

No, not my son, he's a great sleeper, he takes after me. Why can't my husband sleep? Well...let us delve into 10 reasons why:

10. He has a lot on his mind, and he's thinking of the different flies he can tie on his fly rod to catch the big one.

9. He's enviously watching me fall asleep less than 2 minutes after my head hits the pillow, and wondering how he could have married such an anomaly.

8. The crackle of the baby monitor and our son's quiet breath keep him up.

7. Pain, the pain in his arms, legs, hips and shoulder, now if he only had a wife who would lovingly massage these pains he might be able to sleep

6. He's too hot.

5. He's too cold.

4. He's re-living the chase and fight scenes from the action-adventure movie we watched before bed.

3. He's not sure, but he could be hungry

2. Our black cat is meowing blood curdling muuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrooooooooow's to be let outside and no one else(his sleeping wife) will get up to do anything about it.

1. His very pregnant wife is snoring, and if he does anything to stop it she'll wake up and bite his head off.

This has been my first entry as part of Mama Kat's writers workshop

Stopping by from Mama Kat's! Great story. Love #10! My hubby used to wake up at every sound on the baby monitor, and then wake me up to ask me if I heard it...UGH!

My husband sleeps like a log...I'm definitely not worried about HIM. I would feel bad though if he couldn't sleep due to pain! Yuck!!

Wow, those are a lot of reasons! That too hot one is one I relate to--I get night sweats sometimes that wake me up. My cats come on my bed sometimes waking me up so naturally I have to pet them!
