Sherman snores. Loudly.
He’s been snoring since he was a wee little puppy but the older he gets the louder his snores get. Sometimes his snores shake the house.
I can hear him snoring when he’s in the basement and I’m upstairs.
When he sleeps outside of our bedroom at night his snores keep me a wake until all hours of the night.
One night when Gracie was little and she was taking up space in our bed due to a nightmare, Sherman and my husband were snoring together.
There was absolutely no silence in between snores.
It’s like they were tag teaming snores.
It was a snore-a-thon.
Gracie and I just laid in bed laughing our butts off.
But I have to confess something.
I’m a snorer too.
I am a very loud snorer. Maybe the loudest woman snorer in the world according to my husband and I’m totally the loudest snorer in the house.
I’ve always been somewhat of a snorer but over the years it has definitely gotten worse and louder. Sometimes my snores even wake me up.
The reason they got louder over the years was most likely due to a blow to the nose that I took several years ago from Leroy.
One day after coming home from work I was greeted by one ginormous head that was overly excited to see me.
I heard my nose crack when his massive head made impact.
I immediately covered my nose and ran into the bathroom.
A little of blood and a minor adjustment to the bone in my nose.
I was a little devastated because I have a big nose as it is and now I had a big crooked nose.
I’m pretty sure I had a deviated septum and the post nasal drip and amplified snoring pretty much confirmed that.
I never went to the doctor for it. No way. No way am I letting a doctor up there.
A few years went by and one night I was messing with Leroy and his big head found its way to my nose again. His head came up and made a powerful blow to my nose and I heard it crack……. again. I immediately put both my hands over my nose and shouted, “Oh no! Not again!”
Bobby, who was sitting on the couch across from us, started laughing and said “Let me see.”
“No way.” I said shaking my head.
After a few minutes I womaned up and removed my hands and was pretty excited when Bobby said that it actually looked straighter.
If it’s straighter maybe I won’t snore as much!
The next morning the husband let me know that I was still a snoring monster. So even though my nose was straighter my snoring was as strong as ever.
He’s losing sleep because I’m sleeping so good and snoring while I’m doing it.
I think it’s a sign of day well lived. I lived the day so well that I’m exhausted and snoring all about it. It has nothing to do with a deviated septum.
Hubby strongly disagrees and thinks it may be time for separate rooms for Sherman and I because we’re both snoring train wrecks.
I’m not that bad. Sherman is but not me.
So I made a last ditch effort in order to save my sleeping arrangements and tried out the new Breathe Right Nasal Strips
As luck would have it, they have curbed my snoring enough that my husband has stopped kicking me in the middle of the night and has agreed to let me sleep in the room as him as long as I wear the nose strip.
Unfortunately they don’t work on dogs.
Someone make that happen so Sherman doesn’t get kicked out of the bedroom.
So tell me, does your dog snore? Do you snore? If you’re a woman do you snore? Please tell me you snore.
p.s. Thank you to Breathe Right for the free samples! If you have a chance check out the lavender scented strips! They smell so good!
Disclosure. I was sent 2 free samples of Breathe Right Nasal Strips as a fun gift for their #NightsRight campaign. I wasn’t planning on using it in a post but I changed my mind because you might need these to save your marriage too. 😉 You can get free samples right here.
p.p.s. The husband has threatened video taping in the past but hasn’t delivered so as far as you and I know…..it’s all a lie.
p.p.p.s. I used these last night because my allergies are out of control. OMD. Instant relief. So much so I just might be wearing one right now. Stare all you want, I can breathe.
p.p.p.p.s. Leroy does not snore at all.
