Thought I would share a little tip. I had a cheap pair of ear plugs that I had bought one time for travel, but never used them much. Thought they felt weird. Just for fun I tried them the other night since it is now allergy season and my husband sounds like a train wreck. I got so tired of going in the other room to sleep or rubbing his arm 5 times a night to have him change positions of sleeping. My frustration level was brewing. Well, I'm geting use to the little suckers and I'm finding I don't wake up for every little sound in the house, like I always do. Thought if this helps anyone out there I would be thrilled..... Nothing better then some restful sleep! Scrunch them up real good before applying them to your ear, that helps.
