    Poor, poor Sugar Daddy.

    He snores. Bad. Like, as in fog horn bad. Like, as in he wakes me up several times a night with his baritone scales. Good thing he has perfect pitch.

    To remedy this situation, we've made an addition to our bedroom. No, not separate beds, although I wouldn't complain, but something much more high tech. He now has to wear a CPAP to bed. He struggled at first with the face mask, and mostly the not being able to pick his nose all night long, but that's a whole nother post, but now he's doing fine with it. Problem is, he still snores. Hmm, what to do?

    The doc has come up with a great new plan. Uvula removal. Say that five times fast. No, seriously, try it. You know you're doing it in you head, aren't you? Yeah, I did it to.

    The Uvula is that oddly shaped, (and named) hangy ball thingy in the back of your throaty. Apparently it gets all sleepy and relaxed at night, as any good body part should, and falls backwards and partially blocks off the airway causing snoring, and in Sugar Daddy's case, sleep apnea. Sounds as if removal is the way to go.

    So he goes under the knife on May 12th. Can you imagine the pain of having stitches in the back of your throat? I sure can't! But if it gets him, and me, a good nights sleep, it's worth the pain. I mean his pain. But we share pain, cause we're just that close.

    I hope the surgery goes well and that you can finally get a full nights rest.

    I am so disappointed, Keli. You didn't do the "remove-ula" joke. I have told everybody I know about that!! Hope all goes well.

    Mom told me about the removula. You are so funny. That picture of Gretta with the pencil is so cute. Does she love pens and pencils too. If Gracie finds one I can't ever get it away from her. I can't wait to see the pillowcase dress!!!! I am so dang excited for this summer.

    Poor Sean. I'm sure it's just like tonsils and the older you get the worse it is!!!! Looks like you are going to be playing nurse the rest of May. You should get a nurse outfit.....Sean would love it. : )

    I don't need to say anymore.

    Ooh, a nurse outfit, how sexy. Well, maybe not.

    Mom, note the title, silly.

    Jill, those pillowcase dresses are supposed to be super easy, so we'll see. I made a pillowcase bag yesterday, and it's not my best work, but it is cute. I think it would be better with a standard size case, and not a king.

    Okay I knew that things like your appendix, wisdom teeth and gall bladder were all extra parts but I did not know that the Uvula was as well. Does it really serve no purpose other than to swell up when you are sick ... kind of like a pop up turkey timer?

    Keli, you seriously could write a book...and sell it! Sleep apnea, huh? I swear my hubby has it too. Tell Sean I'll think of him, maybe put him in my prayers, and wish the best for you guys! Good luck!
