And just because. Here's another sleep talking/doing weird things story.

Last night Josh was on the computer working on his secondaries for dental school and I had fallen asleep. Then around 12:30ish I sat straight up and said, "How'd the computer get over here so fast?! I just saw it on the other side of the room!"

Josh: "Noooope. It's been here in my lap the whole time, you must have been dreaming." I looked at him all confused then laid down and went back to sleep. 

Five minutes later I rolled over towards him, opened my eyes, glared at his computer then shut it. Then with a creepy smile I said,  "It's bed time silly, go to sleep." Once he agreed  I steam rolled to the other side of the bed and went back to sleep. I guess my subconscious doesn't like his computer. 

And a couple days ago Josh was in the other room working on secondaries. again. And I was asleep. Suddenly Josh heard giggling coming from the room. As he peaked his head into our room I gasped and said, "I thought you were behind the curtains!"
Josh: "Remember what I told you about the curtains?
Me: "Oh yeah! If I ever think you're back there you actually aren't and I'm just dreaming!" I then fell back asleep. 

Yep. Still no recollection of either of these experiences the next  morning, but I sure do looove hearing these stories from Josh. 


Also, a post about this cutie soon (his name is Wesley)...
