One day this winter school was cancelled and I took the opportunity to sleep in. Aaron recorded something that he had insisted was real, but I was certain he was over exaggerating. I have been told I am a heavy breather when I am asleep, but that it wasn't a full blown snore. Aaron on the other hand has insisted that I full blown snore, wondered if I have sleep apnea, and wondered if my struggles with focus and attention during the day are linked to my sleep habits. I am not sure why I favored the opinions of others over the statements of the man who sleeps with me every night; maybe because I don't want to be a snorer?
(sorry folks I can't figure out how to attach this so that it plays automatically. I welcome your advice!)
Regardless of my desires there is now proof that I snore, and for some foolish reason I feel like sharing that fact. Every time I listen to it I am incredulous that it is me, and I laugh at how intensely I snore. I can't decide if I am embarrassed or amused, but it definitely evokes a strong emotion in me.
I have some plans in the works for eradicating the snoring issue. As for the emotional hibernation I have been feeling; every day I feel a little more awake, a little more alive, a little more energized and excited about what the day has in store for me. The snow banks may be taller than I am, and it might have been below 0 last night, but every day the sun shines and even in frigid temperatures it is beating back the snow.
Come Spring, Come!
