I’m Awake And You Should Be Too!

I found Harland staring off into space this morning as I headed out the door to work.

Harland:  “I didn’t get much sleep last night.”

Me:  “Oh yeah? Why?”

Harland:   “Well, first somebody had to get into the closet in the middle of the night.”


(Our closet is right next to the bed and sometimes Kitty feels the need to explore in there. So she pulls and pushes on the folding door until it opens enough for her to get in. If this takes a half hour like it did last night, so be it. Kitty is determined to get what she wants no matter how long it takes.)

Harland:  “Then, somebody jumped on top of me and demanded attention. And if I don’t pet her she sticks her nose on my face and it’s wet and cold.”


(For some reason, Kitty only does this to Harland. But then he is her favorite and in the middle of the night I’m not jealous about that at all.)

Harland:  “Then around 5:30am there was some lightning and thunder. So I got up and unplugged the computers. And then I had to go to the bathroom.”


Harland:  “And then the alarm went off at 6:30am.”


Me:  “Well, maybe sometime today you can get a nap in. Kitty certainly will.”


Harland:  “Yeah.”


Kitty: “What’s up with him? He looks really tired.”
