A Christmas present for me?

Ah how nice, thank you.

My husband snores. I mean really snores, but not as bad as my dad. You could hear my dad all the way to the other side of the house. But there are times it is so bad, I have to go sleep on the couch. He doesn't have narcolepsy or a sleep disorder or need the surgery you can have for snoring, He just snores. He got an idea for a Christmas present for me, thinking it would help his snoring, and my sleep problem. He got me one of those sound therapy sound machines with 10 "soothing sounds".

It is interesting to me that he is sleeping better, is not snoring as badly and is more rested since we got the machine. I on the other hand am having to adjust to the "soothing sounds". I grew up with open windows and could sleep with all the country noises we had around us. But that was a long time ago. Last night was the first night I was able to sleep through the night. Lets hope that tonight I can do the same, I think I found the sound that works for me.

I do appreciate the gift, but it makes me wonder who this was really for; sort of like the birthday present, the GPS that is still in his car. Tee hee.

And besides that the kids like it, and they go in our bedroom and change the sounds to listen to them. I may have it set on one sound, but when I get ready to to bed, they may have it on something else. I like sounds of the waves, and the rainfall. I got in there last night and it was a thunderstorm. That is not restful.

At least it wasn't a saw...that'd be no fun for you OR the kids!

When I was a kid and my best friend would spend the night, we would entertain ourselves by standing outside my parents' bedroom listening to my dad snore. Fortunately I did not marry a world-class snorer; I just scratch him on the shoulder and he rolls over and is quiet.
Sleep well--however you can!
