Cakes and I have been married now for over three years. In these three short years, we've gotten to know each other better. It ranges from different things like the way each person feels about privacy (no comment on that), to what kind of foods we like, to much deeper stuff that I can't share on here. But one thing I can talk about is the fact that we both snore!
The first time I was aware of my snoring was on a trip to Houston way back when. I was hanging out with a friend of mine, and we went to visit this guy. I was really tired so I fell asleep on his couch. When I woke up, I saw him staring at me in amusement and I asked him why. He said it was the cutest funniest thing watching this girl sleeping and snoring! Chai, I was mortified! But I figured it was simply because I was exhausted. Like I've actually woken up because my own snoring was loud. Again, I figured those times was only out of exhaustion.
Since we got married though, Cakes has never actually complained about my snoring. Actually that's not true. He complains about it AFTER I complain about his own snoring. The thing with Cakes is he goes to sleep VERY easily, whereas it takes a long time for me to fall asleep. So if I fall asleep and I'm snoring, he can tune my snoring out easily and go to sleep. If he falls asleep first and is snoring, then it takes an even longer time for me to fall asleep. Most times I just kick him until he stops. If I have the energy, I'll find earphones and plug into my phone with soft music. But these days, more often than not, I just whisk myself off to the guest bedroom! I have to wake up quite early to get to work, and I need the sleep abeg! Of course, I don't do it every night but sometimes it's really just necessary. I think I might need to invest in a carton of ear plugs :-|
I'd like to ask you guys though - what do you do when your partner snores? And do you have any natural remedies for snoring?
