One of THOSE days

I was having trouble sleeping, which is not usually a big deal since I don't have a day-job, and can sleep whenever I want or need to and so I don't stress out when it happens. I think I was awake from 1:30 to 3 or so. The cats always find it amusing when this happens and pile on. I listened to some podcasts and hovered in and out of sleep. I dreamt that someone was ringing my doorbell, that I got out of bed to see who was at my door in the middle of the night--but then I realized I hadn't actually got out of bed, that I'd just dreamt it. And that I don't have a doorbell so obviously no one was ringing a doorbell at 3am.

Finally, I got to sleep--and Puffy, right next to me, starts throwing up in bed.

I have three blankets piled on and I just rolled down the top blanket to keep the puke off us. I started to fall asleep. He started trying to bury his puke. SIGH.

The sucky thing is that there's a 5-foot snowdrift against the back of my house where my dryer vent lets out, so I will need to snowshoe around to the back of my house to dig it out if I want to do laundry. I imagine it'll be kind of like digging a grave--I can pretend I'm on Supernatural and I'm gonna "burn the bones." I don't feel like it, but I also don't want to need to use a laundromat until the spring thaw.

I haven't quite worked up the motivation yet. At least I will feel justified in the purchase of the snowshoes I "never use" according to my ex.

ETA: I did it! Holy hell, that was an adventure. Will post pics.

Well, I went to bed at 1:30 so maybe I stole your sleep. Oh and at 3:00 my cat was making weird gaggy noises (but at least she didn't throw up on the bed) but I got up to find out what was going on. However I then promptly fell back asleep until 10:30.

Good luck with the snow shoeing shoveling.

OMG that would make a really good story. I need to make an idea file somewhere.

I went to bed around 4am - had to get edits in ;o)
My cats just try and smother me when I get into bed. Sometimes they make gagging noises and I just shove them off.
I want to by a pair of snowshoes. Are they easy to get the hang of? Luckily my dryer vent is the one thing I haven't had to shovel out. But I love how, as writers, we can let our imaginations run wild in any situation, making any situation more enjoyable. if I ever try my hand at horror, I have a few ideas about that river of ice in my backyard...

They're not too difficult to use. Maybe you could find them cheap somewhere used. Someone like me who bought them and said, "Hey, wait a minute! This is NOT fun!"

not thinking of it as fun, just want to get around easier ;o)
