When I First Got Married I Thought Couples Who Had Seperate Bedrooms Were Crazy. Several Years Later, I Think It’s The Best Idea Ever!

Time: 10 pm-ish

Place: Bedroom

And…Action!

My hubby likes to lie in bed and have quiet time. He’ll read his Mother Jones or Popular Science magazine with our cat laying on his chest. I’ll be watching Friends and occasionally the hubby will point something out in his magazine. I’ll nod, pretend I’m paying attention, and say something like “uh huh” or “oh cool”. After awhile he’ll put down his magazine, give the cat a few treats that she’ll puke up later, and turn off the light. Now this is where the fun starts.

Within ten minutes he’s snoring….loudly. Then he’ll start grinding his teeth. Ree Ree Ree Ree.

He hurt his leg awhile ago which can cause twitchy spasms. Maybe it’s because I keep my toenails so short but I think his toenails can rival Freddy Krueger. So his twitchy leg spasms trigger his Freddy Krueger toenails and he starts scratching the shit out of the sheets. Riiip Riiip Riiip.

Oh and did I mention that he likes to hang his feet over the end of the bed. So let’s recap.

He’s snoring away like a bear. Teeth grinding. Ree Ree Ree Ree. Leg twitching all over the place. Toenails slashing away at the sheets Riiip Riiip Riiip. And his feet are constantly pulling the covers down while I continually grab at them and pull up, grab and pull up.

I’m usually not asleep at this point, I mean how would that even be possible? By this time I’m reading US Weekly or watching Chelsea Handler. Every now and then I punch him in the arm or jab his twitchy leg with my foot lightly tap him to stop his snoring.

A few hours later I’ll still be wide awake, reading or on the computer. His snoring will be so loud that it will usually wake him up. He’ll look at the clock and see how late it is. Then he’ll tell me he can’t sleep and that I’m keeping him up. He’s lucky that I love him so much.

    HAHAHA this seriously made me LOL. I too have a guy that snores like a beast and has some toe daggers. He doesn’t rip the sheets, no no no, he rips me. For some reason he just will not cut them shorter. Same goes for his fingernails, always always always stabbing me.

    Ever since Alexa was born we’ve slept in separate rooms. Well…almost ever since 🙂 We co-sleep and I can’t deal with sleeping next to 2 people, ha! One of these days Alexa won’t need or want me there all night, and what will I do? I’ll have to sleep in the same room as the beast again! ACK.

      That is so funny! Not that he goes all Freddy Krueger on you but everything else. I couldn’t understand why my hubby keeps his nails so long. Then last year my MIL and I went to get a pedicure.

      I think I actually jumped out of my seat when she took her socks off! It was so bad. lol
      Her toenails were longer than my fingernails.

        OMG! That’s, ummm…nasty! There was this older woman next to me last time I had a pedi. Her toenails were seriously long. I couldn’t stop staring.

        Peter’s mother is all sorts of kept up…she’s fancy that way 😛 I have no idea where he gets it from. I tell him that unless all the white is gone from his nails (like down to the nailbed) that they’re not cut all the way. He just refuses to admit they’re kinda long!
