No Such Thing as Sleeping In
Sunday, August 09, 2015
I'm usually up around 6am. I'd planned on sleeping in til 8 this morning because it's Sunday.
The dogs had other ideas.
At 6:15 Tuli (my pitbull) put her paws on the bed and licked my face while Niner (my golden) cried and thumped her tail against everythin . So I went to the living room and curled up on the sofa. They followed and jumped up with me. I can often get another hour or more of napping in this way, but not today.
I only got 15 minutes before Niner started crying and licking my face and Tuli started jumping around like a maniac. I rolled over and covered my head. Tuli started her growling howl that she does in addition to her jumping. Niner nosed under the blanket and licked my ear.
I gave up.
It's now 8:30 and the dogs are both asleep again. My husband has joined us on the sofa and I'm drinking my morning coffee.
It's quiet and peaceful for now. My niece will be over in a bit for some Auntie time. Apparently she's having trouble seeing things in shades of gray and understanding that life isn't fair, and brothers suck for awhile until you're grownups and then you like each other again. We'll talk this over while working in the garden and roasting some tomatoes.
It'll be a good day, even if I didn't get to sleep in.
