Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Snoring

I'll be sleeping soundly, and then I hear what I think might be an angry bear.

Only it's not.

It's my husband. Snoring.



Some nights aren't as bad. But others? 

I want to take my pillow and smack him over the face. I picture myself doing this but I don't, because it's mean. But it's also mean for him to keep snoring! 

Like a lot of people, he mainly snores while on his back. Sometimes I can kick him and he'll turn. Other times he won't budge. How can he not feel my toes digging into his legs? Then again, he's a military man, he's been trained to sleep through all sorts of scenarios. 

Sometimes I want to punch the person who decided that married couple should sleep in the same bed. Why? I imagine both parties would sleep better on their own. I do. That's one of the pluses when he has to deploy. I get the bed to myself! No snoring! When he's quiet, I enjoy having him next to me, don't get me wrong. But when he SNORES? Constantly? 

I get stabby.

I do not like my sleep disturbed. 

Stop the snoring! 

Does your partner snore? Or do YOU snore?

  1. My husband snores and he's on the CPAP machine. He can still snore through that. Before the machine, he could be heard snoring from the outside of our home with the windows closed. We do sleep in separate beds. I know it goes against what society thinks and many have said we have to sleep together to have a good marriage but when we were sleeping together, we were both cranky and snappy at one another. Neither one of us were sleeping well, I'd be mad at him for keeping me awake, he'd be mad at me for waking him. Not to mention we both had physically demanding jobs. Lack of sleep could get one or both of us hurt.

  2. There's an episode of How I Met Your Mother where Lily and Marshall go on this trip and their hotel room has separate twin beds. They end up getting the best sleep ever. LOL!

  3. Mine snores too. When we camp, he echoes through the whole campground. I'm a light sleeper, but I guess I've gotten used to it. It's only annoying when I'm trying to watch tv in bed, because I can't hear the TV!

  4. My ex husband snored. So loud that I could hear him through the closed door into the living room. My son inherited this lovely trait.

    Luckily for me I had amazing luck second time round. Frank only snores when he is extremely tired and even then it's so silent I don't really hear it unless I am awake and the house is dead silent.

  5. I hate to admit it but I am the snorer in our family. Sleep apnea is my excuse but it drive my husband to madness.

  6. Oh man. My husband is the worst. I literally have to go to bed at least 2 hours prior, to make sure I am in a super deep sleep before he tries. If I wake up I usually have to move out to the couch, and turn on the TV because it's so loud. He laughs when I tell him, or when I look like crap the next day. But when I was pregnant he got pay back. I snored most of my pregnancy. It sucks! I feel for you!!

  7. We sleep separately some nights. My marriage is stronger if we're both getting quality sleep. Otherwise...curtains.

  8. My hubs snores only if he gains weight. Otherwise he is a quiet sleeper, but he flip flops around all night! I fall asleep on my back and don't move till I wake up!

  9. My husband doesn't much, but he said I did when I was pregnant.
    I don't mind it when I hear snoring, though! Makes me know I'm not alone.

  10. Yes my husband snores, but luckily not all the time. When he does I shake the bed a bit. I do snore when I am really, really tired but luckily not too often (I think).

  11. Chris snores when he's really tired or if he has had a couple drinks. Always worse if he is on his back - I kick him, too when that happens!!!

  12. My hubs snores a bit and I just kick him to roll over :).

  13. This sounds exactly like me! My husband has chronic allergies and he snores SO loud! Kicking doesn't work - many times I end up on the couch. He swears he doesn't snore - I really need to record him one of these nights.

  14. My little 14lb dog snores like he's a 214 man sometimes! He sounds a lot like the walkers on "The Walking Dead" so its even creepier at night! :P

  15. My dad was a big snorer- my mom's worn earplugs her entire life but I don't see how they can help when you can hear him on the other side of the house. I love snorers! I know- weird but it's a comfort thing. Thanks for that one, dad. Oh but it's NOT comfortable when you're on a flight and your dad starts snoring. eek

  16. Mine only snores when he is super tired, like after pulling an all-nighter with work. That also seems to be the only time he sleeps on his back. I can usually roll him to his side and it stops. I don't think I could handle every night!

  17. Shawn snores. It drives me batshit and like others, we sleep in separate beds and separate rooms. We're both happier when we get good sleep and that's really what's important. I'm a royal bitch when I don't get enough sleep.

  18. This makes me really, really glad that Angel doesn't snore!

  19. OH MY GOD! My husband is HORRIBLE! Which is why I go to bed so much earlier than he does - so I can be out cold before the snoring starts.

    The few times he wakes me up from a sound slumber with his snoring; I can tell you that resisting the urge to smother was difficult.

  20. funny you mentioned the word stabby in the same post as snoring... because YES!
    I don't even bother coming to bed when my hubby is sawing logs too loudly. I will sleep in the spare bedroom, or take a bath, blog...whatever. And I do hit him. Hard. Often. Because seriously... STABBY FEELS!
    And I completely agree with the days of old: separate Masters and Lady chambers.

  21. This made me laugh!! My exhusband would snore so loud, I would literally kick him when he woke me up, and he knew that it was time to turn over... Maybe this why I'm divorced? HAhaha... seriously though, my mom and dad have separate rooms and separate beds, mom says she sometimes misses their cuddles, but not so much that she's willing to share a bed with him again!
    I hope you get some sleep!
    PS... Lakenheath is a great base, we were at Alconbury!

  22. My husband snores every once in awhile.. and it is the worst. But thankfully he doesn't do it too often. The worst is when him and the dog do it at the same time.. ugh.

  23. Yes! He does! I bought him the Breathe Right strips. He said they make me be able to breath better - he says he has a deviated septum (sp?). However it did not seem to work on him when he was sleeping. I'm trying to get him to keep using it to see if it will help over time.

    I totally get what you feel!

  24. Oh mine snores too and when he keeps me awake I wake him up and tell him to roll over. I do not let it just go

  25. Oh my gosh. Check my Twitter feed! I was JUST griping about this! Curtis snores sooooo bad. It drives me NUTS.

  26. My husband snores sometimes (when he can actually fall to sleep.) But, what drives me crazy is he never really falls to sleep or constantly wakes up at night. When that occurs, he has to sleep in the pink room. (It was once my youngest child's room.) I can be so miserable when I don't get sleep. I think it's a good idea to sleep separately if it makes life easier and happier....

  27. My ex used to snore, it's one thing I do not miss about him. Although i do miss his heat - he was the perfect hot water bottle for my feet!
