Learning About Myself Through Marriage

I am pretty new to marriage, almost 6 months now, (Check us out above!) but marriage seems to teach me things about myself every day!

Until I married Sarah, I had lived on my own for 5 years, but more importantly to this story I had slept in a bed by myself for the past 26 years.
Here is a little back story to my sleeping habits. 
When I was younger I was a very WILD sleeper! When I say wild I mean I used to go to sleep at night and wake up the next morning on a bare mattress and all the pictures close to the bed were on the floor, it was crazy! So while living on my own I never thought about how I slept at night. Honestly I thought to myself “I have grown up a lot, I’m not the wild sleeper that I used to be”. Well I was wrong.

A couple of weeks ago Sarah and I went to bed, just like any other night. I’m not sure what we had watched before we went to sleep (probably Law and Order), but it caused me to have a crazy dream…

I dreamed that some guy pulled a gun on me. I can remember panicking in my dream, but I was quick that night and I talked the guy into putting the gun down. I can remember saying to him “let’s settle this like real men, let’s Indian leg wrestle!” (What? I have no idea where that came from!). Good thing I was a smooth talker that night because the guy put his gun down and we commenced to leg wrestle. I can remember in my dream I was totally winning! Until I felt Sarah elbowing me and saying  “OUCH!” I woke up and I had been trying to leg wrestle Sarah! Basically I had been kicking her all throughout my leg wrestling match in my dream!

Lesson learned I’m still a bit of a wild sleeper. Poor Sarah has endured a lot so far in our marriage; being kicked while I was dreaming of leg wrestling and I’ve been pretty bad about throwing elbows at night, she’s taken a few to the head!

Hopefully I will settle down one day and not be so wild in my sleep! Until then y'all pray for Sarah!
