A Neeeew Man

Apparently I'm in the running for a brand new and improved husband after today.

I would happily settle for a much needed washing machine upgrade - but hey.

Now, let's make it very clear that I am madly in love with my current Hubby.

I'm not usually a violent person, but sometimes, in the wee end-of-my-tether-just-wanted-some-rest hours I'm so MADly in love with him that I kick him and seriously consider smacking him out.

He snores, my (current) Hubby.
Chronically.

I have a difficult relationship with sleep at the best of times, but Hubby's (unintended, I know, I know, I know) interference often takes it to the next level of downright dysfunctional.

After only approximately three years of nagging him, my Hubby finally went to see an ENT a couple of months ago.
It turns out he has a severely broken nose.
And has had for about six years now.

(In case you're wondering - 'cause it crossed my guilty mind too - the broken nose came BEFORE the occasional 'wanting to smack him out' business. Probably before we were married actually.)

According to the specialist and others, Hubby will feel like 'a new person' after today's surgery to correct his nose.

I can only wonder what this new person will bring to my life!!

Maybe this new man will do the spontaneous pick up a cheap bunch of flowers just because.
Maybe this new man will have outstanding vision - and actually see his clothes strewn on the floor?
Maybe this new man will be overcome with urge to cook a meal every now and then?

Or...
Maybe this new man will stop patiently tolerating my gazillion flaws and start looking for his own new woman!

All lame jokes aside, I'm feeling a tad sick to my fluttery stomach as I watch the clock here. As it's not exactly feasible to cart a bub and a boy around a hospital all day, I'm at home with them -  knowing that Hubby will be going under pretty soon.
Suddenly, I have this compulsion to iron everything in sight.
Nervous, anyone?!

 
I can't wait to have my new (old) man back where he belongs.
(Which is not out on his own huge, skippered boat with his brand new surf ski on board chasing waves with a bunch of his mates - despite what he would like to make believe.)

All the best for your Hubby, I'm sure he'll be just fine - and that lack of snoring will be such a pleasure!

Hee hee! T-boy is getting a nose job!!

No seriously, I hope it does help him (and mainly you) sleep like a very well behaved baby :)

Oh poor hubby... and poor you Shar! Can't have been easy for either of you. Must admit when the ENT told me Angus would need his adenoids out, I felt so guilty for not taking him in earlier, those months (years??) we struggled through, not knowing. Amazing how the human body works isn't it!? Hope all went well and you're enjoying your evening with that new man in your life xoxo

Oh my goodness! I am suffering the same problem at the moment! I even kicked my partner out and told him you are on the lounge until you see a Dr. He slept out there every night for 3 weeks until I asked him to come back because I was lonely... he still hasnt seen a Dr!

Good luck to your hubby and happy sleeping to you! You will both feel like new people once this is done

I hope all went well? Not a good combination that - insomniac and snorer... let's hope his newly aligned septum does the job :-) x
