OK, this? This BITES.

Yes, it's quarter to two in the morning. Yes, I'm awake. No, this was not intentional.

Eric's sick - he's got a pretty bad cold that's been hanging on pretty hard. A cold, y'see, generally involves congestion - and congestion, particularly of the nasal passages, leads to tossing and turning and snoring. I'm a light sleeper, and snoring is the one sound I absolutely can not block out - it will keep me awake.

So, I'm on the couch. Again. I'm also not feeling so great (thanks so much, co-worker S, for showing up to work for the last week hacking up a lung), and the resulting coughing fit actually woke Eric from his sleep and sent him skittering into the living room to see if I was ok. Apparently, I sounded like I was either choking or having a panic attack. No, no no, just hacking up a lung.

We shall attempt this whole "sleep" thing again. If I'm still feeling this crappy in the morning, however, then screw it, I'm calling out. I've got the PTO, and it's a new year. (Oh, who am I kidding? I'd feel way too guilty to call out and I know it. Arg.) At least I've gotten a promise from Eric that he'll go to a doctor, not only for the cold but for the snoring - this has been a fairly constant problem for him, and it can be a sign of so many not-good things that it's worth getting it checked out. My dad used to snore something fierce, worse than Eric by a long shot, to the point that my parents slept in seperate beds most of my growing-up. I'm starting to understand why that was, now, and I HATE it.

The ear plugs actually work pretty well for me and Chef's "nose noises". It's obnoxious to wear ear plugs every night, and they don't block out everything, but it allows me to both snuggle and fall asleep...
