The Marriage Saver

A fact I’ve learned to deal with over the years.

My Hubby snores.

Like big loud truck rumbling through the Lincoln Tunnel kind of snoring.

When a man can wake himself up with his own snoring, he is an Olympian of snoring.

My man is the Gold Medal Olympian of snoring.

So how have I dealt with this?

I’ve tried “nudging” him over onto his side…with my feet.

Shushing him.  Because that’s effective.




Even dragging my blanket and pillow down the hall to the spare room to escape the constant sawing noise ~ the air pollution that was emitted from my sweet man.

Then one day, out of desperation or perhaps pure genius I ordered myself a White Noise Machine.

I plugged that baby in and ….the angels sang.

That night as Hubby sawed logs, I surfed through my white noise choices.  Yes, choices! To mask the sounds coming from the other side of the bed.  I found one that seemed like a match.  Kind of like the humming sound one hears when on a flight to somewhere wonderful.  Did it cover the snoring completely?  No, but it did mask it enough that I drifted off to sleep that night and every other night for the next two weeks!  It was a marriage miracle.

I love my new little toy so much I now take it with me everywhere.  Everywhere!

Thanks to the white noise machine this Mama is getting her zzzz’s.

And you know what?

A rested wife is a happy wife.

    I love my White Noise Machine, best investment ever. Can’t sleep without it on now.

  3. my husband got an Apnea machine it’s almost like white noise, or maybe Darth Vadar

  4. Wow, sounds like something I need! Glad to hear it’s working for you guys.

  5. Krista M says:

    My mom could use something like this to deal with the horrendous snoring sounds of my dad!

  6. Jamie hall says:

    I need this, my hubby’s snoring is so bad

    I could ABSOLUTELY use one of these!!!!! So very cool. I had no idea this even existed. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  8. Marilyn Legault says:

    My daughter needs this for her husband.

  9. Alayne Langford says:

    I run a fan but it’s not enough to drown him out! I like the sound of this white noise machine 😉

  10. Wow – I wouldn’t have thought of that. In the summer our air conditioner is enough to do it so I guess it makes sense!

  11. I wish I had one of them a few years ago!

  12. Melinda Jana says:

    sounds interesting…. maybe I should get bf to try it….i’m the one who makes the loud snores 😛

  13. kathy downey says:

    I recently ordered a White Noise Machine,i can’t wait to try it!

  14. Debbie WhiteBeattie says:

    My husband don’t sleep in the same room anymore because I couldn’t stand the snoring anymore but now we both get a good nights sleep and I’m not angry anymore.

  15. Stephanie LaPlante says:

    I think my mom would love this. My dad snores and occasionally laughs in his sleep.

  16. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I know all about snoring that keeps you awake, pushing, elbow in the side, nothing helps so this sounds like a great solution for those whose partners snore. Glad it’s working for you. 🙂

  17. Melinda Jana says:

    I do all that when I travel and stay in the same room with my family…. I’m just as bad when it comes to snoring, so this might be an option when we travel with family

  18. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    My daughter-in-law actually used one for her son when he was a baby when it was time for him to sleep. He went to sleep but whether it was because of the machine I don’t know 🙂
