Things That Go Bump In The Night

This is a post from my Muscletank.net diary for today...


I'm reading "We Thought You Would Be Prettier - True tales of the Dorkiest Girl Alive" by Laurie Notaro. It's a good before bed read, since it is very light and funny. In one chapter she talks about her dog barking at something that doesn't seem to be there when she checks out the situation... Ironically that is the chapter I had read last night before dozing off to sleep...

While I was deep into some serious REM sleep, all the animals at my house were going nuts. The cats kept jumping on my side of the bed and meowing in my face and the dog was restless and kept barking in her "you've gotta come see this" bark. Needless to say, I didn't sleep well last night after all that animal commotion. DH and DD got up to let the dog out a couple of times. This morning we discovered what all the comontion was about. There was a sick rat on the top of our patio roof, and the dog went out to bark at it this morning when we got up. My hero, DH, got the rat down from the roof, put it out of it's misery and burried it ... 2 cups of french roast coffee isn't even making a dent in how tired I am.

Reality check:
I'm exhausted. I'm gonna skip my cardio today. I have no energy.

Things that went right:
If there's any consolation, it IS a beautiful day outside and my roses are starting to have their last hurrah before the weather gets too cold.

Things that need improvment:
Sleep...
