I Forgot Too Easily

I am a firm believer that people should live together before getting married. I'm not saying you have to be intimate or "do the deed" with your significant other, but it is important (to me anyway) that you really know who you are marrying. Dave and I lived together for a few years and I learned pretty much every god awful annoying habit of his and learned how to either deal with them, change them, or complain about them without him wanting to leave me. Most annoying on the list are: chewing with his mouth open, snoring, tapping his feet, pacing... and the list goes on. But you get used to those sorts of things and eventually you get over them.

Well, after living without him for 5 months, I have apparently forgotten ALL of these annoying habits. And let me tell you, they came back full force this weekend. Maybe its because I am sick and 38 weeks pregnant, but man oh man, did these habits drive me bonkers. How horrible of a wife am I that I was a little glad he was leaving today so I could have the bed to myself??? No more snoring, no getting kicked, no one taking up my side of the bed, no one's elbows in my face, no one's breath on me (I HATE feeling someone breathe on me, especially when I am trying to sleep). Please do not get me wrong, I love my husband dearly and wouldn't trade him for anyone in the world. But at 3am when I haven't been sleeping for 3 hours, I really want him to be somewhere else.

Please send happy money thoughts our way so that we can afford a bigger bed when we move so these problems will be resolved! 2 adults and 2 cats should NOT be sharing a double bed. This should be illegal!

LOL . . . my advice is to go right for the king size bed. We have a queen, and with two adults and two dogs it's not nearly spacious enough.

I agree, I hate being 'breathed on', and I'm rarely a cuddler in bed, I want my space!!!!

Kate, I could have written that post!! I also dispise being breathed on!!! I will be so happy to inform Ian that it's not just me and it's not just his breath that is disgusting and annoying.

I don't know if I or Ian would survive a double bed situation. We have a queen and its just right, but we only have one cat.

I agree with Dani. It's not that much more to just head straight for the King Size bed. It doesn't help with the snoring whatsoever but it definitely keeps them out of breathing range.

I can deal with most annoying habits, but breathing on is the worst. I can't wait to be getting a new bed in a couple of months! I don't think I'll have to push hard to sell dave on a kind size =)
