I admit I snore. I admit I don't know when I'm snoring when I'm asleep, but I do know I snore. Have you ever awakened yourself because of your snoring? Yep, that's me.
I admit hubby snores. When we had the corgi, he snored too. Son used to comment he would come home late at night and walk down the hall to the bedrooms and hear 3 distinct snorers.
Fact of life.
Most nights I can "endure" hubby's snoring. Most nights he can't endure my snoring. The secret for him is getting to sleep before I start snoring. The secret for me is to be asleep soundly before he starts snoring.
We have a backup plan. The couch in the den. It is somewhat comfortable but it is the farthest room from the bedroom, i.e., less noisy snoring.
I wake up in the middle of the night and look over and hubby is not in bed. I'm thinking "my snoring" which is usually confirmed the next morning. Some rare days he'll have trouble sleeping for other reasons.
He'll wake up in the middle of the night and look over and sure enough I'm not in bed and he'll think "snoring" which is confirmed more than not in the morning, though sometimes insomnia will get the best of me and I'll just give up and go to the couch rather than toss and turn in bed and disrupt him.
I wonder what would happen if we ever fought over the couch, i.e., we both arrived at the conclusion we needed out of the bed at the same time. Thankfully there is a love seat and couch out there. It could work.
I sleep on the couch, albeit not the most restful of sleep. I wake up a bit, check the time and my tablet and then try to fall back to sleep. Some nights I'm successful, other nights I'm not.
I often wonder why babies and young children resist a nap. Wouldn't you love to have the opportunity to take a 2 hour nap in the middle of the day and not have to worry about responsibilities? I know I would. Work would frown on it though.
I would take it in a heartbeat.
One day we'll have to replace the couch. It has seen better days.
But now it is a safe comfort in the middle of a sleepless snore filled night.
And are you a snorer?
Its okay, confess it if you are.
You are among friends.
No one will judge.
You'll be welcomed either way.
Even if you wake me up with your snoring.
