The silent treatment and snoring

*Foodie on his mountain. Around 12,000 ft elevation. 

Oh boy – the Chief is starting to lose it. He\’s not in control and it\’s really getting to him that I am not getting the chores done on the list, in the time frame he has suggested.  So this morning I am getting the silent treatment. You know, 95 % of the time we get along – but I guess he is really having issues about not being in control of his little world. I won\’t roll over and allow myself to be dogged and nagged. 

I think it\’s rather telling actually…

Another issue is I have started to SNORE. I never used to. I guess it is old age. It does not appear to be sleep apnea – I sleep sound and am rested when I get up and I rarely take a nap. So he tells me he couldn\’t sleep last night due to my snoring so he slept on the sofa. I\’m kinda thinking he slept on the sofa because he is mad at me, and could not get to sleep because he is overthinking. It\’s bugging him that he can\’t control the situation. I also am getting the silent treatment this morning. Usually, he is a talker…

He goes to the Podiatrist tomorrow. Maybe he needs to see a shrink! 

He also gets bugged at me because I don\’t agree with him 100% on politics and the issues of the day. He is 100% Conservative and as I have stated I do have some left-leaning social issues that I agree with. I read somewhere that men tend to be more conservative than their wives. For the most part, I pick my fights. I just listen to him because I don\’t want to argue. But sometimes he says things, so disagreeable to me to just sit back and say nothing. So we have THAT going on as well. 

He\’s funny though – I hear him hobbling up and down the hallway, (he should be sitting) as I write this – huffing and puffing and mumbling to himself. He\’s never been a laid back person so his having to convalescent is killing him. 

He did put together a table for me yesterday and ripped the rattan off a chair I can\’t get around to, because I am doing his chores. He seemed to be alright with it. His issue is that he is not in control and his way of compulsively doing things is not my way. 

It\’s been one week now…on to week 2. We\’ll probably master this, in week 5.

    ha. I about snorted out my coffee, thanks. I thought I was the only one. My husband just came in (the 3rd bedroom is set up as a little office for me) and demanded I check his mothers bank account and demanding I tell him what's due and have I paid this or that etc. (I am the court approved guardian for his mothers financial affairs etc.). I'm like, \”excuse me?\” Yeah…its gonna be one of those days my friend. grin.

    Hang in there. I think its a man thing for sure. My mom gave us the silent treatment a lot growing up and though I hated it I tend to give the silent treatment at times with hubby when disagreeing on things. I've learned to pick the battles over the years. I just let him have his way most of the time; its just easier. And I have a mantra that if he goes before me I am not marrying again.betty

    Silent treatment is a form of abuse in many cases. Fortunately he doesn't do it to extreme – it's just annoying and shows him to be childish. I know it will blow over.He's a good man, but we all come with our faults, don't we? Comparing him to my first husband, OMG there just isn't any comparison. I'd take the Chief over him anyday.I wouldn't remarry again either. I'm happy with the husband I have, warts and all.

    My husband is a talker so if he gets mad and gives me the silent treatment I consider it a nice break! LOL

    X snored like an I-don't-know-what starting a couple of years after we got married. When I started to snore 30 years later, he had a fit. Payback is a bitch.Love,Janie

    That's funny. Mine has a c-pap and so he rarely snores unless he lays on his back – he's so used to me jerking the bed, he automatically turns over. I have him trained well. Yet when he tried to jerk the bed, I stay put because I sleep like a dead man. Nothing hardly wakes me anymore.
