Not sleeping...

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Why am I not sleeping at 4 am when I don't have to be at work until 8:30 am? For that matter why have I not been asleep since 2:30am? This is why:

Lately every morning when my husband leaves for work (he has to be at work at 3 am) our cat hops into the middle of my chest and licks me on my nose until I get up.(How un-cat-like is that???!!! I've told her if the other cats see her do they are never going to let her live it down). I've tried the old roll over and cover my head, but then she just finds the top of my head and starts pawing. The only way to stop her is to get up and put her outside the bedroom and close the door. Now the problem with that is I'm the type person that once I leave the bed, I'm up ... even if I'm up and tired. So after tossing and turning trying to get back to sleep I always give up and get up, then what does the cat do?


oh yes, let's not forget how cozy the printer is

and what does she do when I wake her up?

...if looks could kill right?
I do in fact put the cat out at night (either outside the bedroom or sometimes outside the house), but she sneaks in every morning when my husband gets up. I've even wondered if he is conspiring with her, after all he likes me to lay down with him at 6 pm and I'm more motivated to do so when I've been up since 2 am. emoticon
Oh well, I hope everyone has a great day ( need tired emoticon with smile here) I'm need some more coffee.

    Your cat is adorable. I'm sorry you are short on sleep; I have a hard time going back to sleep if I am woke up too so I sympathize with you.

    I hope you are enjoying the challenge and feeling good this holiday season. It's great to not to have to worry about losing extra weight in January.

    I have a cat that looks similar to yours and he keeps my boyfriend awake while I'm gone.

    I have two Himmie brothers - Prince William and Prince Harry. William is like an alarm clock in doing the same thing to me that yours does to you. Good thing that I wake up early anyway. He is party time at any hour and thinks I should be as well. Like you, once I'm awake, that's usually it. There's no going back to sleep.
