Sweet Sounds

Last night I again woke up about 2 a.m. This is really getting old.  I am sleeping very soundly and then I'm just awake.  The eyes open wide and the mind is racing.  It's not even hot flashes that are rousing me out of my slumber, I JUST WAKE UP!  I don't mind laying there for a bit and drifting back into dreamland but the problem is when The Hubby is rattling the walls with his own Sleepytown Noises.  It's not really even a snore, at least as bad as my Dad used to do, it's noise.  Many years ago The Hubby had a test to find out he had sleep apnea so he had surgery.  Then he had his uvula lasered off and his deviated septum fixed.  It was great because he finally started dreaming again and YEA the snoring stopped.  He could peel the paint off the walls snorer and it ceased.  Fast forward to now and he is again making sounds when he sleeps.  Saying all of this, therein lies my problem of trying to get back to sleep yet again.  The "sounds" he makes.  I jiggle the bed, I nudge, flip-flop in the bed, anything to try and make him shift.

As I was laying there last night trying all the maneuvers to get him to stop I had the thought that it would certainly be very quiet without his sweet sounds.  I don't think I would like the silence either.  I guess I have grown to love the sweet sounds that are rolling around the bedroom walls every night from The Hubby snoring.

Sleep is a BIG, continuing issue for we gals "of a certain age". Nice you can enjoy the familar "sounds" that are in your boudoir. :-)

My mother-in-law used to travel with a friend who snored so loud that she woke herself up - and then accused everyone else of being the snorer. I often wonder if I make any noise when I sleep. My husband is a quiet sleeper, unless he has been in a bunch of Cigarette smoke (Oktoberfest in Tulsa was the worst), and then he asthmatically wheezes, which is very scary.

It is weird, I don't sleep through the night anymore either. Wish I did.

My wife is pretty loud and keeps me up but that is better than the alternative.
