When my husband is extremely tired he acts grumpy. Always has, always will. And, it's very hard getting along with him. He gets very picky. But, I can't judge him too harshly, I'm the same way when I'm tired. It doesn't happen that often, but when it does, it's very disruptive. It's hard living around a tired person. He doesn't sleep well anyway, so today when he finally got ten hours sleep, I was practically over-joyed! Is your spouse hard to get along with when they are tired? Does their grumpy tired behavior ruin the peaceful household atmosphere and make it hard to have a good time? Do you try to make sure they get extra sleep, just so they don't cause trouble or start arguments? How do you deal with their moodiness when they're tired?
