Sometimes you feel like a nut

So, Hubby's been sleeping for 45 mins straight after a night of consistent ups and downs. Stumbles and bangings (NO falls last night) Waking me by pushing, poking, digging, spatting, and squeezing me. Trips to the bathroom every 15 or 20 mins and me repeating, don't get a drink every time you come out of there.

So again, sleeping for 45 mins straight.
I just want to walk over to the bed and shake him real hard and say, "You need to go to the bathroom!?" Then poke him until he gets up.

But I won't.

I get a 4 hr respite today.
I may sleep in my car ;-)
