We had the most beautiful set of rooms at the Elms in Natchez the other week. I got a suite in case anyone wanted to come to Natchez with me but no one did. I knew my
husband would snore loudly and start elbowing me in the night, so I went to the second bedroom and slept in a cozy bed there.
I know people say things like, "They sleep in separate bedrooms!" as an indicator of a bad relationship but, you know, when you get older, you just don't put up with bad sleep if you can help it.
Here's where I slept:
I have to say in fairness to my husband, though, that I am a terrible insomniac and fidgeter so it's hard to sleep in the same bed as me anyway. Mel says it's like someone is disco-ing in the bed all night.
I read this quote today from a divorce lawyer in a London paper:
"Snoring comes up almost daily as grounds for divorce, and when couples tell me they are rowing a lot, I can often trace it back to the lack of sleep that snoring causes," says divorce lawyer Vanessa Lloyd Platt. "But lawyers rarely put it down on the divorce petition because it can seem to trivialize a divorce."
