I love my husband I seriously do, but I no longer know how to deal with his nap fits. Do any of you experience this?
Seriously, he lays down on his days off to take a nap between noon and three and we are talking religiously & when he does, he is like a hibernating bear....when he is woke up and I no longer no how to handle his behavior because frankly it is arrogant and obnoxious!
If anyone calls the house during these hours, he gets angry and we have tried placing the phone on night mode or lower the ring and nothing makes him happy unless it is unplugged.
If anyone is outside talking loud enough to wake him up it upsets him. If the mailman idles in front of the house to long, if a loud car drives by, if someone stops by the house and knocks on the door....it is becoming a pain in the tush!
The oldest granddaughter usually puts a note out that states the grouch is asleep please do not knock or you will pay for it. How sad, but so very true!
If he goes into the basement, I must sit upstairs very still or he wakes up. I walk to hard without shoes on so I must put shoes on, if the couch comes down to loudly he will come up angry, if the dog is walking around to much, if the kids are laughing to loud, I am beside myself on what to do.
I have tried to tell him the world doesn't revolve around him during his nap and I even suggested he purchase ear plugs. Nope, he won't and nope it doesn't.
Today 2 of the 3 grands have been puking, so I made some Ginger tea not giving it a thought...he came up the stairs hollering...for over an hour you sat in the chair without moving, but let me lay down and you can't stop moving can you?
I am at my wits end. He gets up every day very early and I get that, he works very hard and I do not work and I get that, but this damn obsession he has with his nap and that everything has to be perfectly quiet does not bode well with me for many reasons and several being I have no control over people and I have no control over what they do.
I am open to suggestions as this is just crazy!
