Musical Beds

This is what I like to call it in our house. You never know where someone is going to be sleeping at night.  We may also start off in one bed and end up in another. It’s sorta similar to the musical chairs game.  Why is our house like this? Hmmm, someone has a snoring problem in our house. Angry Husband snores like a bear. Sorry Angry Husband, but you do.

For example, Saturday night we both started in the Master Bedroom.  I flopped around, and said the usual, “flip on your side, move over, etc.” I might have even umm shoved someone with my elbow..

Master Bedroom Bed

But I couldn’t handle it, so I moved to the couch. I think someone sleeps on our couch almost every night. Angry Kid falls asleep on our couch a lot. Sometimes we move him, sometimes we don’t. Doesn’t my couch-bed look lovely? At least I took the down comforter from our bed.

Living Room Couch

Angry Kid has an awesome bed. His mattress is brand new and quite nice. Angry Husband has actually slept on his bed a few times. It’s kinda funny to see him covered up in dinosaur blankets. His legs also hang over the bed. Shocking, but Angry Kid actually slept in his own bed, Saturday night.  We moved him there, does that count? You can see him hiding under all those blankets. Oh, and the Christmas sheets, those are coming off today.  I needed to find the other set of flannel sheets for his bed.

Angry Kid's Bed

Angry Husband is not that heavy.  He did a sleep study sometime last year, where they told him he was fine. But ohhh, the snoring needs to stop. Or maybe I need another bedroom with a fabulous bed.  Do you have someone with a snoring problem in your house?

P.S. I slept on the couch again by choice last night. I DVR’ed Big Love.  I wanted to watch it in peace.

Ed snores REALLY loud! For years I rotated him like a kebab, but quite frankly, I am too old now! Once I made him lose weight by with holding sex and the snoring eased, but once you have been married over 10 years, that simply has no clout anymore!!:-) So I kicked him in to the spare room. He hates to sleep alone, and I hate to stay awake all night, plotting how to kill him without going to jail, and having to sleep with tons of snorers!!! At one stage I was going to stuff the two cats tails up each of his nostrils, and lie the dog on his mouth! Unfort. the cats would not co-operate! Damn cats...so darn selfish! Another time he actually woke-up to find me holding a pillow just above his nose! I felt kinda bad that time.:-) But once I upped his life insurance to the max, he realised things were not too rosey, and moved in to the spare room.:-) Now we all sleep in our own rooms, although I still wear ear plugs coz I can hear him breathing. Unfort. he refuses to budge on the thought of a second house!:-) xoxo Al.

Dave snores a lot. But we don't sleep at the same time. I sleep from 11pm - 6:30am ane he sleeps 4am - 12pm. So it is really only 2 1/2 hours that we are in bed together. But when he does snore I kick him and he'll stop for about an hour. It works for now!

I slept on the top bunk in my kids' room last night, (dog scored the bottom bunk) while husband and two kids commanded the king size bed... we have a guest room but nobody wants to sleep in there because the hamster cage hasn't been changed in waaaaay too long. LOVE your blog! Came over from Baby on Bored. -Ellie

So glad we are not the only family that does this! No one snores too bad, but my husband got hurt in Iraq, and some nights me rolling over in bed causes him so much pain I just Migrate to the couch. Then my daughter leaves her bed for the couch (and something that weighs 30 pounds can sure hog a lot of couch space!) so I wander into her bed. Keeps the dog on his toes trying to round us all up in the mornings!

My sister and I use to do the musical beds thing all night long! She'd follow me where ever I was sleeping!

I think you know the answer to that question....hello emailing each other at 4am. Ha! My kids stay in their beds until around 5ish. For some reason that is when they gravitate to our bed which is fine with me b/c they fall right back to sleep. We are getting Bram brand new twin beds and I am buying kick ass mattresses for them. Why? Because when Adam is snoring his ass off, I am the one who has to find a new place to sleep while he is enjoying our luxurious sleep number bed. Promise.

We have a snoring problem in this house too...but, um...I'm the one who snores! Sorry, I can't be responsible for what I do in my sleep.

My husband snores so bad and I kicked him out! HAHA! I couldn't take it anymore. I have a hard time sleeping and everytime I get to sleep, he wakes me up with his snoring. So, we've been sleeping in separate rooms for about 2 months. I even have him shut the door to his room since it wakes me up. I've tried to let him come back in our room and he does OK for a night or two, then he starts snoring again. Maybe it's our bed. I don't know, but I hate doing the "turn over" thing all night long!

It would probably be like this in our house as well - if I could fit into the babe's crib...it is actually quite comfy - the one time I put myself in there!! Hahahaha!!! ~WM

Julie, I could not survive with a snorer! I would make him get surgery!! Hope you have a great day- I think we are allowed to be late on a Monday. Talk soon!

oh thankfully it's the only sleep issue NOT going on in our house - but my sister in law snores and it is NOT fun to share a hotel room with her!! (even though I love her!) I wish you luck!

Lol! I love this post! I hear you about the "roll over" then the elbow (most of the time he slept through it, anyway). I slept on the couch or sent my DH to sleep on it *many* times because of snoring until he finally was tested for sleep apnea. Now he uses a CPAP breathing machine and the snoring is gone! Now he's attached to a crazy-looking mask thing, but at least he no longer snores!

Ha! I could have written your post! My husband snores SO loud that when I leave our bed, shut the room door, and go to the couch, I STILL HEAR HIM! He's not had a sleep study done yet, but I plan on scheduling one, because I miss my bed! Currently we are talking about populating one of our our extra rooms (that is currently a play room) with a bed so that I can have a real bed to sleep in ;)

The Politician is the only one who stays in his onw bed and ends up there by himself. I start off in our bed w/ Mr. Sasha. WC starts off in her own bed as well. About 2:30ish she comes to our bed and I say "Fluck it" and go to her bed, which I love because she has a weighted blanket and I sleep.so.good. under that blanket.
