In Love With A Snorer

I'm typing this after a night of very little sleep thanks to a certain snorer and his howling cat... The worst part about sleeping next to someone who snores is that the sound works itself into your dreams. I will spend who knows how long stuck in a dream trying to figure out what this incessant "ggghhhhmmmphh...ggghhhhmmmphh" noise is and begging for it to stop until I finally wake up and elbow (ever so lovingly) the culprit next to me. And I swear, he tag teams it with the cat. Cause the second Jordan stops snoring, Finn decides it's time for him to howl us awake to feed him at 4 o'clock in the morning. I don't know what to do with them. 

We took these blurry iphone pictures last night for posterity reasons because we have very few photos together these days. We went to a late showing of the new X-Men (which was so good, I can't stop thinking about it. I would see it again today. Who wants to go?). With mine and Jordan's schedules, we get to spend very little time together. It was really refreshing to make our way in the dark hours to the theater. It felt like it did when we were dating. It was also one of the few times I was not jealous of my friends with children. It has been really wonderful having so many years to just be Jordan and Bri. We've been really spoiled to be able to pick up and go whenever we want and just be us. I don't know how much longer it will just be us, me and the snorer, but I am going to try and take advantage of the time as much as I can.

  2. Imagine the cat snored? What a nightmare. Sorry you haven't been able to sleep - I've had my fair share of snoring people around (I can ever hear my parents from a different floor). I'd suggest ear plugs, but they're far too uncomfortable...

    1. I actually do wear earplugs. So that should tell you how bad it is.

  3. These pictures of you two are so cute. Robbie doesn't snore, but he does make weird sounds...one is like...this worried, yelping sound? I don't even know how to describe it. So when he does it, after a few times, I'll poke him. And then he always says, "Huh? Oh, I'm so sorry." And it breaks my heart and then I feel terrible about it, and then I can't sleep because I feel so awful. Vicious cycles, ya know?

    1. That is so sweet. 90% of the time Jordan has no memory of me elbowing him. So I feel no shame.

  5. you two are adorable. when i'm asleep i'm out like a rock (ryan tells me he checks to see if i'm still breathing) however, its the getting to sleep part thats hard. i noticed ryan snores a bit, but only when he's on his back. i end up nudging him until he rolls over. but i can't sleep when he snores. we also live next door to a grandma who watches tv on the maximum volume at the wee hours of the night, so i've tried white noise. since its warm my white noise is now our fan and it drains out all the sounds and i love it. this is a rather long and ranty comment, i'm sorry. i'm just saying i feel ya.
