Why Don't Pets Get Insomnia?
I'm sorry guys, but I have to do a bit of whining today. I've never had much of a problem sleeping, but lately I think I have a full-blown case of insomnia. I usually get to bed between 2 and 3 a.m. and have my alarm set for 10. But I've been waking up at 7:30 or 8 and then can't go back to sleep.
To make matters worse, the last two nights I've had problems falling asleep, despite my early awakening. Fall asleep at 4, get up at 8. Not good. What happens then is that I waste my two days off sleeping during the day. Is it stress? Work is always a mad-dash rush every night, but lately a little more stressful, so maybe that's it. Also, The Boss is on a business trip, so our pet schedule is off kilter. Came home to some land mines last two nights. The first night I found the mines with bare feet. I'm not doig my usual yoga and exercise because of the sleep problems, which I'm sure makes things wores. Anyway, enough complaining from me. Tell us YOUR latest gripes--feel free to bitch and moan!
Pictures today are from Adrienne who says: "“This is Mattie and Oscar sleeping with Stella trying to stay warm in the winter. As you can see they had winter hair. I just shaved Mattie down for the summe,r so she is trying to sleep with Stella again, but Stinky thinks it is too hot for that. She tries to get up and move away from Mattie, but Mattie just follows her. I have been keeping Mattie under the covers with me at night and had to put out a blanket that is normally for winter use on the couch for her. Geeze, children!
"I mentioned to Brett the other day on the blog that we used to have a dog that looked just like his Charlie. So I thought I would share a photo with him of Copper. I think he's about a year old in the photo. He loved to sit in that old recliner. He died when he got into my moms chicken coop and killed her chickens. He bled internally and there wasn't anything they could do. This was my hubbie’s first real pet, so he took it very hard, especially since we were not there when it happened. That same summer hubby lost his dad to cancer too. His dad and Copper were best buds, so hubby always says they are together now. His dad loved to take Copper on walks through his vegetable garden, so that is the picture hubby keeps in his head. When he saw Charlie the first words out of his mouth were, 'That’s Copper.'"
