Snore Snore - Stab Stab

Mr Xbox snores.   If this keeps up he may become Mr Exbox. 

I'm usually quite a light sleeper and it takes me quite some time to get to dreamland, so the things keeping him alive me asleep and still sane are half a tablet of an over the counter antihistamine sleepy tablet and ear plugs.

I can't afford this lack of sleep.   I'm still trying to get one of my novels ready to publish by June, rewrite my Nano novel, write my monthly picture book and I've just signed up for a Chapter Book Challenge with Imagine! Create! Write! for March (hopefully). 

Umm, oh and there's also child care, housework, cooking, whatever.   (Where is my four year old?  Oh, watching TV.  Awesome parenting right there!  I might just throw some more chips at him while I'm at it!)

Did I mention the exercise thing I'm still trying to do?  That's right - I didn't.

Anyway, not sure what to do about the snoring.  We don't have a spare bedroom for me to escape to for some silent solitude, or for him to escape being stabbed to death by a sleep deprived wife.  

(As I was writing this post my hubby asked me if he could buy a Sony PS Vita.  I said he could.  Then he said 'Honey, they are $500.  I was joking.  Are you thinking straight?'.  Then I said, "I'm actually writing a post about sleep deprivation."  Funny that!)

So it would appear this post has been brought to you by Restavit and silicon ear plugs.   Sorry for the nonsensical rambling.


  1. Ahhh, I know what it is like. Luckily I had a spare bedroom, far far away from the deafening roar.(FYI I'm no longer with my husband, but it wasn't the snoring that was the issue.) Maybe your beloved needs to see an ENT specialist to sort the snoring out. Or at least go to a sleep clinic where they observe sleep patterns to see what is going on.

    1. That's a good idea, Marcie. Thank you, I'll check it out! :)

  2. I'm sorry you're not getting much sleep. I know how brain-dead it can make you feel. My 3 year old has been catching various cold and flu viruses that have kept him up at night, and when he is up at night, so am I. At the moment, nothing is getting done. Not my writing, not my housecleaning and not my blogging. *sigh* Hopefully, you and I will both get some sleep SOON!
