I was up late writing last night! :img16
Like, 4am late.
But it was going really, really well, which is why I didn’t notice how late it was getting. :img14
When I started to get punchy & found a spot I could quit without forgetting what I wanted to have happen next, I decided to go to bed. (Duh.) But deciding to go to bed & actually being able to go to bed are two entirely different things here at Casa del Heidi. :img36
I put my laptop away & walked in to find my bed…shall we say…occupied. Although “covered with cats” would be a better description.
Harley & Nicholas were curled together like Yin & Yang pretty much dead center. Then Simon was closer to the upper left corner & Tigger was in the right upper corner. Which pretty much left only about three feet of space at the very foot of the bed. And should I mention that Pekoe was sound asleep in my chair, which is usually my secondary sleep option when The Kittehs have called dibs on the big bed? :img22
With very few options left, & not too keen to actually sleep on the floor, I did what I had to do. Like a good Cat Lady, I grabbed a blanket & spare pillow & squeezed into a ball at the bottom of the bed. As Vanellope von Schweetz (Wreck-It Ralph) would say, “…like a little homeless lady.”
And I slept that way—fairly well, amazingly enough. At some point, I even felt Pekoe walk over me & snuggle up against my butt. That meant the chair was finally empty, but I was too darn tired to get up & move.
Around 8:30am, The Kittehs woke me for breakfast, so I got up & stumbled my way downstairs to feed them. Then I stumbled my way back upstairs & found my bed gloriously empty! Huzzah! :img5
So of course not being an idiot, I quickly crawled under the covers & made myself comfortable in the center of my very own mattress & went back to sleep. Yes, when I woke up again later in the morning, I had another kitteh pressed against my back, but at least this time he had to work around me & not the other way around. :img17
