You Just Gotta Know The Language

I have vertical blinds over the windows. Unfortunately, when the blinds are down, Katy (one of my cats) likes to pry her body through the blinds so she can see out the window. I try to leave them up during the day, but at night I like them down so people can't see in! Katy was just pawing at the blinds and starting to wiggle her way between them. (She has broken a couple of them doing this and I don't have the finances for new ones at this time.) I yelled and was ignored. I then tried calling to her and patting the bed to get her to come over. No luck. I dug in my purse for scratch paper and threw a wad of paper -- anything but get up.

I don't know what possessed me. I had enough (but still not enough to want to get up), so I whole heatedly HISSED in my best imitation of an angry cat. I've never tried that before, but it definitely got her attention. I don't know what I said in "cat," but Katy scampered under the dresser! I guess you just gotta know the language -- even if it is "cat."

It's been a day. That is, honestly, all I can say for it. It's been a day.

I haven't slept well since Saturday. Amy on no sleep is no good! I'm not totally sure what that is about but, I've averaged 3-4 hours a night. That is not enough to function on coherently. I drag myself through the day but at night my eyes pop open.

At the moment is 6:30PM. I'm exhausted and would like to go to sleep right now. But research would say that wouldn't be wise. So, I'm sharing my tiredness with all of you!

But hopefully tonight I will sleep and tomorrow we'll have more happy, hope-ish, type thoughts!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I hope you'll return sometime. Nice to meet you also. I realized after I posted my comment that I did not introduce myself. I found your blog from your comments at Lysa Terkeurst's blog. I am so excited about attending She Speaks. Are you going? Hopefully, you will have a more restful night.
