Kiss Goodbye Or Let Them Sleep?
Every morning, I have the same routine. Get up around 3-330ish, get ready for work, and kiss my husband goodbye before I leave the house.Before I took this job at FUN 107, my husband was always the first one out the door each morning. So it's only been a little over a year that I've been the one to leave first. Most of the time, when I go to kiss him before I leave, I lean over in the dark, say 'Bye, I love you.', give him a kiss, then I'm on my way and he doesn't even know that I'm gone. Every once in a great while, he'll sort of mumble a 'love you too' back, but not usually, and that's ok.
So for the past week or so, something a little different has been happening. One day last week, I went to leave and did my normal kiss goodbye routine, and he must have been having a dream or something because he rolled over and almost punched me in the face! I said whoa, whoa! Then he woke up all confused, not knowing what the heck was happening or probably even what day it was. It just took a couple seconds, til he realized that I was just saying goodbye, and he apologized for almost whacking me in the face.
Fast forward to this week now...I go to leave this morning, do my usual thing, and bam! Just like last week, he rolls over, half asleep/dreaming, who really knows, arms flailing everywhere! Again, with my whoa, whoa! He wakes up briefly to realize what's going on, says bye, and goes back to sleep 2.5 seconds later.
He must be a really deep sleeper, jeez! Because when it was the other way around and he left before me, he would always kiss me goodbye and I would always wake up just enough to say bye, and go right back to sleep.
I was telling Michael and Larry this morning and Michael thinks I should just leave in the morning without interrupting him at all. I just don't feel right about that! What if something were to happen to one of us during the day and I later regretted not saying bye? I hate thinking like that, but I'm such a worrier. I don't know, I don't think I'm comfortable just up and leaving. It just feels wrong, and I know for me, I would rather him wake me up to say bye and I love you, than just let me sleep.
