About Me


Name: Elleoz

From: Fort Mill, South Carolina, United States

I am 32 years old and have been married for 6 years. I had two children under 2 (hence the blog name), but now they are actually 3 and 2. Maybe it is time to change the blog name? Drama Queen is 3 and Wildman is 2 (15 months apart to be exact). I have a Bachelor's Degree on Criminal Justice from Applachian State University (Go Apps!) and have been at my current place of employment for going on 7 years.

    What I Am Listening To

    Must.Get.Sleep.
    Before I get started on this here post, let me just say that anything I say can not be used against me. All typo's and other general mistakes are a result of lack of sleep. I can't help it, I can barely see at this point.

    Please take a moment of two to stop by my new renter, Mama? Mama Come Here! Kel comes to us from the Twin Cities. I have been a reader of her blog for awhile now, and must say that I can totally relate. She is a married, working mom of two boys. Her posts are witty and she has a terrific snese of humor. Right now she is going through some pretty tough times, and could definately use your cyber hugs.

    Now, on to the madness...

    Alpha Male has a snoring problem. He has snored since the day I met him (or the first night I slept over at his house~ which ever you want to count), but it is totally out of hand. In the past, he would only snore when he was deep asleep and on his back. Now it is within 15 minutes of him going to sleep and it doesn't matter how he lays. He even snores on his side. And of course...his prefered side to sleep on is now facing me so he might as well just stick his nose in my ear. Nothing like the symphony of chain saws to lull you to sleep.

    I am a pretty light sleeper but it used to not bother me once I was asleep. Add to that the fact that if I nudged him he would roll on his side and all were happy. Well not anymore. He is pissed because I keep waking him up. I am pissed because I don't get more than maybe 4 hours of good sleep per night unless I sleep on the couch. Who wants to sleep on the couch in their own home all the time? I would have used to say not me....but now? HELL YEAH!

    I have even resorted to sleeping with my MP3 player blasting as loud as I can stand it so that it will drown out the South Carolina Chainsaw Massacre going on to my left. Nothing. It helped a bit, but then I would wake up to the songs playing since I haven't had time to put more mellow music on. The music of (don't laugh) Madonna, N'Sych, and No Doubt aren't exactly sleeping music. Last night I decided to give classical music a try. That would have been great if the stupid radio DJ would have shut the hell up. But every time he started talking I would wake up. Not to mention I dont' really like this option since I can't hear the kids if they wake up. Wait a sec... that might be a good thing.

    It didn't help that I had to work 15 hours yesterday either. It was National Night Out and my dumb ass volunteered to help represent the City. In 100 degree weather. What was I thinking? So, needless to say I am tired, grumpy, and frustrated. I feel bad that I am starting to take it out on Alpha Male, I know he can't help it. But damn...it would be nice if he would acknowledge the fact that he is the reason I am not getting any sleep and not be an ass about it. Sorry I am bitchy buddy. At least one of us is sleeping right? And to your response of I am not letting you sleep? HELLO! You are snoring=you are sleeping. DUH!

    And of course this morning he just had to start slamming cabniet doors at 5:15 am. Thanks for waking Drama Queen up. I apperciate her coming to our room and insisting on watching cartoons in our room while I try to squeeze out an additional 30 minutes of sleep. That was just great. At least she was quiet for a few minutes and let me get dressed in peace.

    Maybe I'll try a big glass of wine before bed tonight. Make my ass pass out one way or another. All I can say it this sucks and he has an appointment with a EENT specialist next week.

    Elleoz: Oh I can relate to this. My late husband snored like this too. We ended up in separte bed rooms. Turns out (he went to an ENT after I told him, get it checked or we get divorced) he had sleep apnea. They got him on a machine to sleep with every single night and then he slept very quietly. Current husband - also a snorer but I wake him up with my own snoring so we usually end up in separate beds too - thank goodness for the spare room. In Vegas on our vacation though, I slept on the couch in the other room of our enormous suite (free upgrade) because his snoring was so bad. Couches suck. Wish I had an answer for us instead of just sympathy.

    My husband says I snore.I so don't belive it. Mostly because I can sleep through just about anything. Except for when he snores! I love the names you picked out. Very cute

    I woke myself up snoring once, but I had allergies that day so I can't be blamed.
    I hope the eent can do something cause a gurl's gotta have her sleep!
