For all concerned, this is a PG blog post, but please keep reading anyway.  The hub and I are approaching our eleven-year anniversary.  For ten of those years, we have played musical beds due to my snoring and the birth of two baby girls.  Finally, this past year I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and now wear a nifty nose mask to bed in order to eliminate the snoring.  Thus, the hub and I have once again joined forces in our queen bed for the duration of the nights.

Now, instead of being woken due to snoring, the hub shakes me if my nose mask is blowing cold air on his back (this happens when the mask becomes dislodged on my face).  I adjust the suction mechanism on my nose, and we both return to our state of slumber.  

A couple of nights ago, I woke to the sound of snoring in my ear.  Literally, I was on my back (as the CPAP is most comfortable in this position), and his mouth and nose were targeted right for my ear.  Lying there hoping the noise would cease, I could not help picturing our situation as if I were standing from our bedroom door looking in at the view.  Doing this, I started to giggle, which, in turn, caused me to choke (opening one's mouth with a nose guard on during use results in loss of breath).  

In truth I was thinking, "Is this sexy, or what?"  The response in my mind was an unassailable, "Yes."  

Ecclesiastes 9:9
Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life which He has given to you under the sun; for this is your reward in life and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.

  1. My husband is a snorer. I say I'm not, but recently my husband recorded me. It was really a loud snore, but still he proved that I snored and he was happy about that. :)
