Why is it during a deployment, or simply time away from our spouses, many of us go on high alert and hear every noise during the night? When I think back to my single days living in my own apartment or even during my college days, I don't remember being this sensitive to sounds. I don't remember having the insane habit of triple checking our doors. I'm guessing it's probably safe to blame this now somewhat OCD behavior on motherhood and frankly getting used to having a husband "stand the midwatch".
I'm also wondering why it is our days can go by in a flash when they are gone, but the nights seem to last an eternity?
Sometimes it's really hard to fall asleep when every little noise keeps my brain spinning. Do you have trouble either falling asleep or staying asleep?
