How does it end?

My husband loves to watch movies. Not that we go to the theater very often, we didn't either pre-kids. But come Tuesday morning, you can usually find him at whatever store has the best deal on the DVD release of the week.
Hence, we have lots of DVDs. I mean hundreds. Cabinets and shelves are overflowing with movies. One of many storage issues we have in this house.
At least they do get watched. Not so much by me (more about that later) but he can watch the same movie over and over and over and over again. And he sometimes watches movies at work. Ahh, the multi-taking skills of a computer geek!
Bravo and Showtime channels have ruined certain movies for me as they tend to play some titles more often than should be allowed.
I will run screaming from the room if I see The Fugitive, Conspiracy Theory (I could just shoot Julia Roberts as she utters his name Jerry, Jerry, Jerry...) or the Pelican Brief, to name a few. Meanwhile, Tim is happily content to watch these films and not necessarily as a background distraction while he's doing other things.
I prefer listening to music or even better, just plain quiet. (Being around kids all day, you tend to like the quiet!)
But we compromise. Which means I turn the tv off when I can't take it anymore!
When I do watch a movie, I usually have to be in the mindset to sit down and have the whole movie experience. Popcorn and soda are often involved.
My problem is that I've never been good at staying awake throughout an entire movie. Ever. Even before the tired that comes with having kids.
I've fallen asleep before the end of so many movies, it's ridiculous. I could do day-long movie marathons of just the endings of films!
I will even reluctantly admit to nodding off at the theater during the most action packed parts of some movies. In fact, this happened just yesterday when I went to see Thor. I'm sure it's a great film but I don't really know!

One day, maybe, after a good long nap (like that day will ever come!) I will have that movie ending marathon, that's also if I can remember which movies I've actually seen!
Until then, well, it's not so bad when Tim puts something on that we've watched before. There are sure to be scenes which wil be new to me!

Sounds like you might have sleep apnea - seriously - I've got it and go through the same. Winning the Euro millions lottery would help, because all money problems would be gone.
