Aftermath of all-night overtime

7:00 am


me: Hi. Good morning. Why aren't you in bed?


him: I'm just doing some stuff with the network. I had breakfast. I have court later.


me: OK, well are you at least going to take a nap or something?


him: No, I'll just stay up. I'll be fine.


 


9:00 am


He's still on the computer. He steps into and out of the entry closet as the network goes on and offline.


me: You really should try and get some sleep.


him: I'm just a little tired. Might as well stay up.


me: OK, whatever you think...


 


11:00 am


He installs a swing in the backyard for the kids and a hammock chair for me. I make lunch.


 


12:00 pm


He leaves for court.


 


4:00 pm


He gets home.


me: Hey, where were you?


him: I had to finish up some paperwork at the office.


me: Ok, well what do you want to do now? Take a quick nap before dinner? Then we can go to bed early?


him: No, I'll be ok.


He lies down on the bed next to a sleeping Val.


me: Are you sure? I can tell you're exhausted.


him: I'm not exhausted.


me: Yes, you are.


him: How can you tell?


me: Everything about you screams it.


him: You can't tell.


me: You're tired. Go to sleep.


him: How can you tell?


me: I KNOW YOU. Goodnight.


him: I'm going to get up. I'm hungry. I'll get something to eat.


 


Five minutes later, by the clock:

I don't know why he fights it.

  2. I think the ability to fall asleep quickly runs in their family. I think it was Aaron who I saw fall asleep sitting completely straight upright in the middle seat in a van on the way home from Mexico!
