This is going to sound really stupid, but this is seriously, like the biggest concern I have once we close on our house and move in…..
We have never lived together, and the biggest thing I’m worried about is the sleeping arrangements.
My fiance works 2nd shift at a hospital (3pm – 12 midnight), so he gets home at, like, 1am and usually doesn’t go to sleep untul 3am or sometimes even 5am. He wakes up around 10am.
I work 3 different shifts and wake up anywhere between 5:45am and 7:30am and get home anywhere from 6pm – 9pm.
We are both really light sleepers so sleeping together during the week is not even an option.
We are going to buy a bed for the guest room and my fiance said he will sleep there, which is fine.
BUT …. when he gets home at 1am, the dog is going to bark. I’m going to wake up. And usually if I’m up, I can’t fall back asleep.
And when I wake up for work, I work out, shower, blow dry my hair, make breakfast …. I make a lot of noise. HE’S going to get woken up.
We talked about closing doors, being as quiet as possible, and arranging the house/furniture/exersize equipment so we disturb each other as little as possible but …. I am seriously really worried about this.
We are both totally miserable if we don’t sleep well. And I’m afraid it’s going to cause a lot of stress if we can’t sleep.
I know it’ll be an adjustment period but …. AGH! Why is this bothering me so much??
