AM- awakened in the wee hours due to my doggo’s incessant licking after he had been outside. I got him to stop, then husb started snoring like a chain saw😵‍💫😖He would not stop, so I got up for 2 hours, cuz I was wide awake *waiting for the next snort.*😤
When I finally went back to bed at 4:30am, there was STILL snoring going on, just softer and less maddening…

Grats for the FitnessBlender challenge! And grins to @Laura Rainbow Dragon , I have to report a kitty that tends to ooze toward the middle of the bed during the night. Hmmm, Aliens are indeed changelings taking the form of our pets! The truth is out there!!!

Yeah, Canoodles is all about oozing!😂. He is very careful and delicate for a nearly 100 lb doggo! Just goes to show you that most aliens are in fact benevolent🥰

AM- awake just before 6am (PST) even tho I was late getting to bed. So, my ZZZs are short by well over an hour today. My daughter has me transporting granddaughter to and from a day camp event. That is assuming I don’t have to badger the kid to get out of bed this morning after she stayed up half the night.
Outside is cloudy, and 43 (F) degrees. The weather forecast looks like we are due snow or mix here, tomorrow.😵‍💫
