For over 21 years I have been sharing a bed with John. I am totally use to his snoring. There have been many times where he has fallen asleep before me and started snoring and I was able to drift into sleep no problem.
Last night-not so much!
We turned the TV off at 11:00 pm. John falls asleep in a matter of minutes.
I can feel my body start to relax and then I jump....his snoring was so loud it scared the bejeezus out of me.
I give it a few minutes....I carefully tap him on the butt and quietly say, "Honey, turn over". He does and I try to relax again.
That's how the entire night went. "Honey, Babe...turn over!!!!!!"
"YOU ARE SNORING!!!!" He had the whole bed vibrating....it was the worse I have ever heard him snore.
He was happy in la la land; meanwhile I'm over on the other side debating on whether or not to go get in another bed. I chose not to because my bed is so comfy.
I laid there wide awake thinking I need to go to Kohls and buy a full size pillow top mattress (like the one we have on our bed) for the spare room so I'd at least be comfortable if I needed to switch beds.
By 3 am I am quite tired of hearing him snore. I'm afraid to startle him....(I've done this in the past and ended up with a fat lip..accident of course.... he felt horrible about it) but I just needed to...I. Needed. Sleep!
So I sit up and very loudly say, JOHN ASHLEY, YOU ARE SNORING LIKE A BEAR.....TURN OVER SO I CAN GET SOME SLEEP!!!!!
It worked! He mumbled a few words that sounded like...whabet oh I hushfiek....
I'm still thinking about investing in that pillow top mattress though!
Some of you asked what a Fat Quarter was-----it is a quarter of a yard of fabric that measures 18"x 22".....I use them to make my skirts and quilts.
