Danny and Melodye

I have been married to my darling hubby for 28 years.  He is a late-night person who likes to watch old movies early into the morning then come to bed.  Like I have said before, I watch the O’Reilly Factor and then go to bed at 9:30 or so. 

That being said, it seems that as we get older, we need more sleep .  Danny has been coming to bed earlier, before I am completely asleep and he snores!!  Loudly!!  I found myself a little bitter about the fact that more times than not, he was happily asleep, snoring and I was staring at the ceiling, jumping at the particularly loud ones!!

The solution is simple, really.  Earplugs.  I stole an orange pair from my hubby’s drawer by his ammunition for his guns.  These apparently work when one shoots a gun too!!

They work like a charm!! Dan can sleep, snoring happily, and I can fall asleep because the earplugs drown out the scariest, loudest of the snores!!  I would have never used these when my kids were little, but now I don’t need to listen for any noises at night!!  {{Yay!!}} 

Happiness is a set of earplugs 🙂

    I, too, have a husband who snores quite loudly. Must be genetics.
