Thank you to Wallahalla for posting the cartoon about "Bark, the Hairy Angels Sing," and to the person who created the cartoon! I just could not leave the song incomplete, so here is a full verse of it:
"Bark," the hairy angels sing,
"Give us each a turkey wing!
We want ham and standing rib roast;
Please no veggies, fruit or toast!
We don't need a speck of chocolate,
But we want what's in your pocket
If it's bacon, chops, or cheese;
Hand it over right now, please!
We know cats think they're supreme.
What's that to us? We have ice cream!"

To the tune of "Sweet Hour of Prayer"
Sweet Kitty Cat, sweet Kitty Cat,
I wonder where my tuna's at.
I left it there
Right by my chair,
And now it's gone;
My plate is bare.
I see you cleaning off your face;
I think I see a little trace
Of lemon sauce
On your soft paws.
I think my tuna's a total loss!

Okay. Time to get silly. (See my blog from November 29, 2013 for the importance of silliness.)
To the tune of "The Star Spangled Banner"
There are kitties in here;
And they drank my root beer;
And they ate all my chips
And devoured all my dips.
All my cheesecake is gone;
And the stereo's on.
They are dancing around;
And the cookies can't be found;
'Cause they ate them all up;
And they tied up the pup!
Oh, those cats are so wild
Like a two-year-old child.
Oh, say, have you seen those kitties with my cake?
'Cause they ate everything else, and I have a headache!

Oh, my darling kitties. It was so wonderful when you met us at the door when we returned from the ER. Yes, your poor, sweet Human-Dad was sick again. I'm sure your tender ministrations have contributed to his feeling better already. It seems that you think outside the box when consoling poor, helpless humans.
Imagine my chagrin, then, when I discovered that . . . while we were at the ER . . . you were not thinking outside the box. No, you were peeing outside the box! It was such a nice touch to conclude a truly outstanding evening! I so enjoyed cleaning it up, especially since it was after midnight when I discovered it. It is probably a good thing that I did not know which of you did this deed! It was especially helpful because of how it delayed my nice, relaxing bubble bath. (I had to use the bathtub in the cleanup process and then disinfect it before I could use it.) I know that you were just trying to be truly outstanding kitties, but you do not need to prove how wonderful you are again!
Whew! Glad to have that off my chest! Now that I have written it, I am glad you cannot read. Because . . . if you really knew how I felt about this home-made gift, you might give such gifts to me more often!
(It's good to laugh, ya know!?)

Okay, on Sunday I set a new goal of being in bed no later than midnight. I did go to bed before midnight Sunday, and I slept pretty well. Last night I went to bed before midnight again, but I could not sleep! Several times recently I have read that if you are unable to sleep, you should get out of bed, so I did. I felt like maybe I could sleep around 3, so I went back to bed. But although I was very tired, I still could not sleep! So I got back up and was up until after 5. Finally I was able to get to sleep.
I was tired when I went to bed, so why couldn't I sleep? Main reason: another stress-filled afternoon and evening spent at the ER. When Charles is sick, my body does not cooperate very well with me. I did some bad eating and even had a fully-loaded Cherry Coke. Not a good idea!
The reason for setting a bedtime was to try and improve my sleep schedule. But maybe that is doing it backwards. Theoretically, I have more control over when I crawl out of bed than I do over when I can actually fall asleep. So I am trashing the bedtime goal and setting a wake-up goal instead. Maybe if I can get the wake-up time in place, the bedtime will follow.
So, new goal: Drag my buns out of bed no later than 9:00 each morning! I may set it earlier in the future, but for now that seems ambitious enough.
This will be much more difficult than the not-eating-at-the-computer thing. Thanks for cheering me on through that one!
