I am OBSESSED with # 23 I ALWAYS have Q-Tips with me.

"53. My hubby and I don't sleep in the same room....he snores, and I LOVE my sleep"

This used to be me for several years (I was actually sleeping on the couch because I could not get a good nights sleep in bed with him), My DH (age 32) had a sleep study done*, and found out he has/had severe sleep apnea where he stopped breathing 40+ times an hour (YIKES!). He is now on a C-PAP machine and no longer snores, is a well rested, happy person who has their life back after several years of sleep depervation. I am actually able to get a good night sleep as well.

(*He originally went to our Family Doctor thinking he was really sick, because he was tired ALL the time and had NO energy, and was quick to get frustrated with the smalled thing. All his bloodwork came back normal.. I just happened to casually mentioned to our doctor about his snoring, so he was sent in for a sleep study... According to his sleep doctor I saved my husbands life because I mentioning that to our doctor.)

SOOOOOO FUN! Your hubby is a sport!

Darby Stickler said...

LOVE it! I feel like I know you even better now! And it's so much fun that your husband did the last 20. And after you did 80, I bet you were like me and thought, "Oh, I should have put this and this in there!" You'll have to do 80 more in a few months!

Liz said...

What a fun list! I love that you guys went to Disney for your honeymoon...I wish we had thought to do that. :)
