I have never been one to sleep in a movie. I used to judge people who did and at times I actually found them annoying, that was if we had committed to a movie together. My husband and I made movie and series watching a big part of our quality time when we were dating.
Motherhood came and disrupted that. I sleep in almost every movie these days. My husband is still obsessed with watching movies and if he could, we would watch a movie EVERY night. This is something I am currently struggling with.
Honestly, any alone time or moment I get to myself I really just want to sleep. I have such a demanding life because I decided to be superwoman when I became a mom and decided to still pursue a career. I cook every night. And by cook I mean, a 2 hour home cooked meal that takes a lot of love and preparation. I workout (lol, ocassionally). I also have a social life. Oh, and two startups that I am involved in.
I just can’t. I CANNOT. I love movies and series, I really do, but I can’t be that person anymore. I want my bed, I wanna wiggle my feet in the cold sheets and slowly drift off into a long slumber. But alas, I am the sleep deprived wife.
If there is anyone out there that can relate, please tell me how you are managing this in the comments section.
