Furry little man strikes again

Thankfully I did not marry a man who snores. Considering I am also a part time insomniac, this is definitely a good thing. Part time you wonder? Yeah, yeah, I'll explain. I generally have no trouble falling asleep. If you were to ask the husband he would tell you that I've missed many good shows but I can't help it - the couch is too damn comfortable. So the falling asleep part is not as hard. It's the staying asleep part that is hard.

I'm a lite sleeper. Always have been. This came in very handing while babysitting. It might come in handy some other day - if a burglar is in our home, if zombies take over the world, if we're on the run in a lawless society and must take turns resting. I can't figure out any other benefits at the moment although I'm pretty sure if zombies do come into play I'll be extremely happy about my heightened sleepless skills.

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I've been waking up every night at 4am. It's been a regular occurrence for the past month. I went to bed a few nights ago feeling pretty tired. This could be the night. I thought I was in until morning. I might make it. Imagine my irritation when I woke up at, yes, 4am, to the sound of snoring. You've got to be freakin' kidding me. I'm getting ready to prepare the old elbow catapult when I rolled over and saw Mike sound asleep. No noise, no movement. Just sound sleeping going on next to me. Yet, there was that noise. Wait. The snore. That pitch. It was coming from down below.....

All 10 pounds of snoring beast - Charlie was at it again.
