ugh. how can a dog be a morning person?
post #442 of 504
The dog is a furry family member. Morning person sounds funnier than morning dog. And he thinks it is his job to be chipper and friendly and wake me up. This is annoying to me, so I decided he was a morning person. He should know better than to bug me before I have my coffee.

you could train the dog to bring you the morning coffee

That's a good idea!

Oh no, Starflower! This is my biggest fear. We want to get a dog, but it absolutely can't be a morning person. I thought since people were their alpha, they'd just follow the pack. Ok, this is definitely going on the list of questions to ask.

I wouldn't worry too much about morning dogs. Ours is already starting to chill a bit as long as our bedroom door is closed. He's been waiting longer to get up lately so maybe their schedules can be changed.

But a friend of mine told me that her cat jumps on her to wake her up every morning at 4:30. Then if she doesn't get up, the cat jumps up on the bedside table and starts jumping on her clock radio until the music turns on. My friend then puts the cat out of the room and goes back to bed.

I went to a movie tonight: "Julia and Julie." I enjoyed it. It'd been a long time since I'd seen a movie that wasn't for children.

Now I'm thinking about making popcorn and watching a movie on DVD or maybe something recorded off the TV. I didn't have popcorn at the movie. I like home-popped much better.

Yay, there are other nocturnals awake tonight!

I had a cat who was a morning person. If hands were dangling out of bed, he'd attack. And if they weren't, he climbed behind the bed between the mattress and the wall, and scratched. Add that to already disrupted sleep from pregnancy, a loud snorer in the bed and a job that required me to get up early...I did not appreciate it.

PS. I haven't been around here much, recently. Mainly, I finished the M.Ed. and then I discovered sleeping when the baby sleeps. My days are starting earlier with her than they did with her brother...

Starflower -- yummm, homemade popcorn! I'd so love to watch a movie tonight, but I have a translation to work on. Slacking off as I write this.... Well, I'm actually stumped on a word, so I'm here to prevent my brain from straining too hard, don't want to get a headache dontcha know.

Hey Jenneology! I never quite mastered sleeping when the baby sleeps when DS was little. Shoula, coulda, woulda. Congrats on the M.Ed and baby!

It's 3 am here, I'm the only one up. My dad is coming over for lunch tomorrow, which means I have to be on top of it in the morning (tidying up and cooking and such).

Must stop reading and posting and reading and posting.......

I'm cutting down (just don't look at my post count ). the first step is admitting you have a problem

It's ten to five in the morning here. I haven't slept yet. I don't think I'm going to, either. Insomnia sucks. :

Same here. DS had us up at 8:30 this morning (technically yesterday morning.) I'm going to head to bed and read for a bit. Hopefully I'll doze off.

I'm still here still doing the same things. Baking for my boys' lunches and banking for the business.

I went to bed at 4am teh day before yesterday then went to bed and couldn't sleep. Up at 10 this morning didn't help and here I am again at 2.30....

I have a codl that no-one else in the house has and I feel really stuffed up so I don't really want to lie down any time soon.

Motheringdotcrack here I come or maybe patternreview and sewing blogs:

When I have that going on, I find that a very steamy shower helps both relax me and clear my sinuses. Then I might be able to sleep for a bit.

Hope you're feeling better orangefoot. That's the worst thing about colds for me, the lying down and not being able to breathe part.
