Jen, I saw both the Spanish stall and the ice cream stall when we drove past tonight. Quite crowded tonight. We ate somewhere else. We will return to the Spanish stall.

Little diner also. Just along the road. Spotted that easily.

Mine snores too. Really bad sometimes that I either have to lightly tap him or lightly pinch on his nose bridge. I sleep with a small pillow covering my ears. It used to be due to the fact the old house used to face a busy street leading to expressway on top of the snoring. Later on it became a habit for me to sleep that way even when it's peacefully quiet here now. But that means the snoring just echoes.

It is significantly reduced sometimes :-
(1) after I give him a massage
(2) when he's not on sleep-debt
(3) when I hug him while sleeping
(4) when he sleeps on his side
(5) when he has a warm drink slightly an hour before bedtime
(6) after a good round of :censored:
(7) when he falls asleep outside while watching tv :lol:

I am a light sleeper.

I resent his thinking that I should sleep in the same room cos he might not snore or I might not hear that night.

I have told him in the past that I have difficulty going back to sleep once I am waken. Which part of this simple English message is so hard to understand?

His ego more important than my health?

I given up on communicating.

I recorded DH's snores to make my point once. Along the way I recorded all the sounds that he makes in the middle of the night. His grunting, scratching, etc. :lol:

The snoring and grunting gets more pronounced when he puts on weight so when I start complaining, he knows it is time to control his diet and start exercising.

It actually is more of a problem because DH travels so much. I will get peaceful nights when he is away and when he is back I will not have a good nights sleep. And just when I am adjusting to having him around, he flies off again so really no chance to learn how to tune out his night noises.

Wouldn't 3 lead to 6 and thereafter no snores? :evil:

:hugs: It's hard when one partner doesn't feel its a big deal when it is a big problem to another.
is he open to considering those "snore strips" etc?

I think I'm destined to a life filled with nights of intermittent sleep. I'm a light sleeper too.

Not only sleep hurts a marriage.

Hoarding totally damages it.

The clean-up. Finally.
