I think I mentioned in another post about our loud fishes. We had them in the hallway outside of our bedroom, but we had to move them because they kept my husband up at night. Yes, two goldfish were too loud for my husband. Well, we got a puppy last month. Charlie is a doxie-min pin mix and he is adorable. He is 8 months old and learning the ropes around here pretty quickly. He sleeps in a crate (I’m sorry I can’t sleep with a dog) in our bedroom and sleeps so quietly. Except for the night that I mentioned to my husband how it was funny that the dog was quieter than 2 goldfish. That night Charlie snored. I don’t know if he had dug one hole too many and had some dirt up in his nasal passage or what but he was snoring. I had to get up and move him like I have to do to my husband to get him to stop snoring. Yes, the person who can’t sleep by the goldfish keeps me awake sometimes with his snoring.
Charlie’s snoring was actually a soothing noise. It wasn’t like a relative of mine. She snores like a freight train. She knows she does and she warns you, but one time I forgot the ear plugs. I’ll never forget that sound. It actually shook the walls. Anyway, Charlie’s snoring wasn’t so loud, but the thing about snoring is that it isn’t consistent. It isn’t like white noise which lulls you to sleep. No, with snoring you stay awake in anticipation of the next wave. And you wonder, will it be louder than the last one? Can I pretend that noise is the ocean? Is there a way to cover him with the pillow without suffocating him? Will it end with another snort? Will I make it through the night?
The good thing is that I don’t snore or make noises in the night because my husband wouldn’t be able to stand it. I might have talked in my sleep once or twice and grabbed all the covers and hit him in the night, but I don’t snore which is good for our marriage.
