This morning I heard my oldest daughter KT get up and ask the dogs if they wanted to go outside. I smiled at the thought of being able to sleep in for a little while longer without having to get up to let them out. I had just drifted off again when I felt the gentle thump of little feet jumping up on my bed. This was immediately followed by a larger plop and the chattering of my child. I have no idea what she was talking about, I’m pretty sure it had something to do with the dogs as my husband stretched his arms out and started chatting back.
I gave a huge sigh and gave a very obvious tug of the blanket, before pulling it over my head. There was a brief moment of silence before the loud conversation began again. I had begun to get the feeling that sleeping in was going to be futile. I was sure of it when they started noisily playing with the dogs.
When all my subtle (and some not-so-subtle) hints didn’t work, I
screeched for them to go away calmly asked them to find somewhere else to talk. They left after a bit of mumbling about how grumpy some people were in the morning.
Of course, by that point, I was completely awake and couldn’t get back to sleep. I decided to make the most of it and just rise and shine. Well…at least rise. Shining seemed to be asking a bit much after my rude awakening!
