I've been in a grumpy mood today. I'm sure it's due to not getting enough sleep last night. I am a princess about my sleep requirements. Last night was not a good night for princesses. Brett worked a couple graveyard shifts over the weekend so he was sleep deprived. When he is sleep deprived, he snores. A lot. Last night he was doing this weird snore gurgle combo thing and he wouldn't wake up and roll over despite numerous taps, prods, pokes and jabs from his increasingly frustrated wife. So, at midnight I was laying there listening to the love of my life saw logs and then the puppy woke up and started playing in her crate. After a while, she stopped playing and started panting. I tried burying myself under the covers to escape the symphony of beastie noises, but that didn't work because my mid-life hormonal imbalance kicked in -- that is, I had a whopper of a hot flash. I took the puppy outside. She got a drink. I cooled off. Brett got up at 4:30 to feed the horses before going to work and took the dogs outside. Bliss! I had an hour of sleep with no sound except the falling rain.
