I curled up next to my husband last night...
I have been working odd-ish hours and running around trying to get the fine details of this house stuff together and I fell asleep last night about 8 p.m.
I woke up about an hour or so later when I heard him coming in. I am not a napper so I ended up not being able to go back to sleep and at about 1 a.m. I got out of my bed and went and got in the bed with him.
After tucking me in he asked me what was wrong and I said I couldn't go back to sleep. He said, OK and pulled me in close and nodded back off.
I lay there quietly listening to him breathe thinking about the hundreds of nights we had slept like that over the past six years. I cried a little bit because these are the last days of disco. In a few weeks I'll be moved out and there will be no more snuggling, no more morning kisses goodbye on the forehead. No more marriage.
Eventually I fell asleep and we slept like that for the rest of the night.
