Rip Van Winkle Wannabe

Do any of you have snoring spouses?

I didn't.  I was lucky.  Until Christmas.  Suddenly my silent bed partner turned into a wake me up out of a deep sleep bed partner.  

And he's still here.

At first he blamed it on congestion.  And I bought it seeing as he was actually sick.  But even since the "sickies" left, the snoring remains.  What's up with that?

I've been having to get up in the middle of the night and move to the guest room.  A guest room where I haven't put sheets back on the bed since we last had guests.  They're in the room, mind you.  Just not on the bed.  So I've been sleeping on top of the comforter, using the sheets as blankets, and sleeping with my robe on because it's so cold.  

Poor, lazy me.

But seriously.  What can I do about this?  I am beyond sick of leaving my warm bed in the middle of the night.  And I know Matt feels really bad.  Do those Breathe Right Strips work? 

That couple looks really peaceful, huh?  Oh how I want that.

So what's a sleepy mama to do?

When mine (rarely) snores in the middle of the night, I just kick him. I bet he'd prefer these.

When you're really desperate, I say self-medicate so you can get some good sleep.

I'm the snorer in my marriage, and my husband says that the Breathe Right strips I have tried on several occasions are not terrible helpful, although they do make me less congested.
So, if you find the answer, please pass it along!
