No doubt, they will be bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning.
Ever have a night that left you with little sleep? A night when sleep is illusive and waking up in the morning is nearly impossible? Well, that was me last night. For some reason I woke up at 3:30 and getting back to sleep was simply out of my control; it wasn't happening, no matter how hard I tried. I flopped from one side to the other; tried my hardest to think "nothing." Ya, thinking nothing is easy right? As soon as you try to stop thinking you think of something related to that.
I heard Luke get up, well sort of get up and turn around, again sort of. He has a very hard time moving around at night; so it is a good thing that he is on a giant mound of beds surrounded by pillows. He repositioned himself and was back asleep, twitching within minutes. Elsa watched me watch her for a bit and then joined Luke in blissful twitching. Yep, I was still awake and trying my best not to be. There was no noise keeping me awake; it couldn't have been more quiet. I just could not fall back asleep.
So I think sometime around 4:45 I dosed off, thankfully. Of course that was short lived as I was shot out of my bed at 5:13am by the sound of heaving. I was still asleep but standing; Elsa wasn't in her bed so I assumed it was her heaving somewhere in the dark and yelled to her. It was only when I flipped on the light that I realized that Elsa was still in my bed; where she had joined me just as I'd drifted off. It was Luke who was doing the heaving but it was the strangest thing as he seemed asleep. I looked closer and listened, he was heaving and finally wretched. Nothing came out, he didn't seem bothered and went back to sleep, this is a first. He didn't even lift his head up when he was heaving; was he heaving and throwing up in a dream like state? I have never had a dog do this, so I'll keep an eye on him.
He resumed his sleeping and was back in twitch land before I got into bed. I just lay there wondering if I'd get back to sleep or just get up. But I drifted off again and now I am so groggy that I can barely wake up. My first coffee is gone and I'm suppose to head to the gym in a few. It is hard to workout when you are asleep. Of course Luke and Elsa are sound asleep as usual.
