Light Start

Wheeeeew, it was a late morning. I wish I could say that it was due to a wild and fun night, but alas, I am old and boring. I spent a restless two weeks trying to sleep at the in-laws (though the king-size bed was a treat!) and have been desperately trying to catch up since we returned. You've heard a little bit about The Beanpole but there is another family member that has been slinking slightly under the radar - Augustus Cat. He's an almost 9 year old fluffy tabby that cannot ever seem to get enough attention. The two week vacation was rough on him and when we returned he was hoarse from screaming and had visibly been on a hunger strike. He's not let either of us have a moment's rest since. The past three nights have been a series of yowls, incessant kneading on any limb exposed from beneath the covers, nighttime crazies, and basically anything else he can think of to keep us from abandoning him for the comfort of a good night's rest. Finally, finally, finally, last night he decided that simply cuddling up next to my feet would be satisfactory and I slept. For twelve hours. Waking up at 11am isn't quite the fresh new start I'd had planned so I kept breakfast light and had a slice of calcium-fortified whole-grain bread with a bit of natural peanut butter, and Chobani non-fat vanilla yogurt with some frozen mixed berries, granola and flax, and a cup of green tea. Hopefully I can get back on track for the rest of the day!
