This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

No ZZZzzzs 4 Me

FYI . . . It's 3:30 a.m. and I'm on the sofa in our suite here at the retreat.  After about a 30 minute crescendo of snoring, I left the room.  
I won't name my roommate, but it rhymes with schmoos schempelton.

.......Welcome to my world.....
can you "feel my pain"???
can you "Identify"??,
....I would tell you how you can make it stop......
but it wouldn't do you any good to know!!!!!

( who has had an entire week of snore free sleeping in New York...)

VikingMom said...

That's why some nights I tiptoe to the bedroom while Billy snores on the couch. That way I can get a few minutes of shut eye before the snoring fest begins!

I feel for you. Maybe next year they can put "Schmoos Schempleton" and Billy in the same room.

Don said...

Connie....We can't wait to hear about your trip. Isn't NYC great!?!?!?!?!

Heidi said...

Oh Don - I can sympathize as Kurt has been known to rattle the windows with his snoring as well. The trick is to fall asleep first. If you can't do that - then just haul off and kick him really hard. When he wakes up wondering who has committed such an offence - just look at him like he's crazy. "What are you talking about?! Nobody kicked you - you're totally dreaming!" He'll be so freaked out by his amazingly "lifelike" dream that he that he won't be able to get back to sleep. And you will then have the advantage...

Billy said...

An elbow in the rib works wonders too. The trick is to not do it too hard--just enough to disrupt the snoring mechanism.

VikingMom said...

Oops...sorry. That wasn't Billy that was me commenting.

Now it looks like I'm the one with the big snoring problem. (I do admit there are times when I snore a bit...but nothing like chainsaw Baker!)

Jon in HB said...

Now I know where Lexi gets it.

Stacey said...

Hey Connie, if you can't tell Don how to make it stop can you tell me? And Laurel, the elbow only works momentarily. If you don't jab it hard enough, he's back at it in a matter of seconds. Earplugs anyone???

Diane Davis said...

Yep, I use earplugs. And does gets a HARD elbow when he is on his back... that is the worst. If I can fall asleep first, all is well, otherwise he's forced to remain on his side facing away from me.

What is it with men and snoring??
