Some nights I don’t sleep well.
True, my job is stressful, and I often worry about the children I must protect.
And some nights my aging body betrays me, and wants to make repeated appearances in the bathroom.
But that’s not often.
No, what usually wakes me up and keeps me awake are the cats.
Take last night, for instance.
I woke to Malachi meowing non-stop. It unnerved me, because that’s not normal behavior for him.
So I jumped up, and went looking. He was at the door to the back porch with his catch- a wiggly worm. He was so proud of his accomplishment, he just HAD to show me. I rubbed his back and told him he was a good kitty. He then snatched up the worm and disappeared, lest I try to take it from him.
That was followed by a half hour of Solitaire on the cell phone while I tried to go back to sleep.
And what keeps YOU up at night?
