I did not sleep well last night but I can blame no one but myself this time. I fell asleep in my recliner while watching Mythbusters on Netflix and woke up suddenly at 11:30 in a panic because Piper had the hiccups and I thought she was going to vomit. She had been sleeping my lap and in my half-sleep state I felt the jerk of a hiccup and jumped out of my chair and ran around frantically with her tucked under one arm like a football, looking for something to hold her over so that I wouldn't have a mess to clean up. Finally as I am standing on the balcony, holding her over the wall I wake up enough to realize that she's looking at me like "what did I do to deserve being thrown off the balcony? Can we talk about this?" Truth be told I probably scared her half to death because I think she had been sound asleep when I suddenly grabbed her and bolted out of the chair. She probably thought I'd completely snapped.
So I took the dogs out, locked them both up and went to bed. Around 1 a.m. I woke up in a second totally unjustified panic because somewhere in my sleep I had convinced myself that I had killed Cody on accident when I jumped out of my chair earlier in the night. See, Cody likes to sleep under my recliner and if I put the foot rest down slowly he's smart enough to get out of the way but I am always worried that I will accidentally smush him. So I jumped out of bed and I ran into the living room to pick up the recliner and look under it only to realize that Cody wasn't under there at all. So then, of course, half-asleep-me starts to freak out thinking maybe he ran outside when I took the dogs out so I started searching the whole house and finally found him sleeping quite comfortably on the floor of my closet inside one of my low-heeled dress shoes.
So I went back to bed again and at some point during the night after that Snackers came home. I must have been sleeping light because I usually don't wake up when he comes home. He's very good about slipping in quietly and climbing into bed without waking me up but last night I woke up just enough to sense him climbing in the bed and feel him snuggle up to me. So imagine my surprise when, at around 3:30 a.m., I woke up in yet a third panic because I realized that someone else was in the bed and did not, at first, realize it was my Snackerpoo! Green goddess on a cracker! I'm a basket case!!!!
