I won!!!!

I won!!! I won an argument!!! It took over a year but I finally won an argument.


When I first married my husband, he could only sleep with all the lights off and NO TV! I could only sleep with the TV on. Well I (being the good wife) wanted to go bed the same time that my husband did, but I can't just lay there in the dark. I am scared of the dark. My husband also goes to bed at 10:00. He bought me a book light, and for a year I would read my book under the covers til I fell asleep.

~~~~Flashback over~~~~~

Well I started reading twilight and the other books that go along with it, and it started freaking me out. I would hear noises and wake Michael up to check those noises out.

Last night when we got into bed, I started to turn off the TV and this was the conversation:

Michael: You can keep the TV on.

Melissa: Why?

Michael: Because when the TV is on, you do not hear the noises, and you don't wake me up. I can learn to sleep with the TV on.

Melissa: Woo Hoo!! I won!! (happy dance in bed) I won!!

It took over a year, but I broke Michael down so that I could have my way to watching TV in bed!! It took a lot of patience and skillful thinking, but he finally sees it my way!!

Now if I could only get him to get that cleaning lady.

Hubby and I have the opposite debate-I like silence and he likes noise to sleep!
