They say love is blind and yes, I do believe that. My husband and I have been married for over 16 years now. Without being blind to some things, we would not have stayed together for so long. And I mean that in a good way AND that it goes both ways.
But, after 16 years, I am ready for one more thing.
My husband snores. Not terribly, but he snores. And it is loudest when he first falls asleep.
And he has the most amazing ability to fall asleep 8 minutes after his head hits the pillow.
I am a recovering insomniac. I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. My brain just never shuts down. So, I lay awake for an hour, or two or more listening to him snore, trying to fall asleep. I jiggle him, tickle his feet, tap his shoulder, all those things to try and get him to stop snoring. It helps for about a minute, but he also has the ability to snore on his back or his side.
Last night, I tried some lavender soaked stones beside my bed. They are supposed to help you fall asleep sooner. I thought maybe, just maybe I can fall asleep first, or at least sooner.
They worked. My husband was asleep in a record 4 minutes. AND he must have been in a deep sleep, he snored louder then ever. After 15 min, I tapped his shoulder.
"Was I snoring? Already?"
"That can't be, I was just thinking"
And off to sleep he went, snoring all the way.
So, after 16 years of marriage, I have enjoyed love being blind, but now I am ready for love to be deaf.
