BACK DOOR BOY IN A FRONT DOOR WORLD
OUTSIDE OF SOCIETY - THAT'S WHERE I WANT TO BE

So.

Sometimes I'll wake up for no reason, sometimes I'll wake up because I hear one of the kids, sometimes I'll wake up because of a noice I hear outside. I normally wake up at 4:30 in the AM to get ready for work, and I try to be in bed no later than 10 so I can get a good night's sleep. I never get upset if one of the kids wakes me up, it's my responsibility if I hear them first to make them feel safe and get them back to sleep.

I swear that the next time my neighbors' dogs start sounding the Twilight Bark, thus inciting a barking riot amongst all dogs within miles, and said neighbors DON'T get their asses out of bed and go do something about it, I'm going to dognap their pets and give them to responsible pet owners - THEN I'm going to put ransom notes in their mailboxes printed on the menus of Filipino restaurants. THEN I'm going to tell all of their children that there is no Santa Claus and that their parents are not only big fat liars, but they're trying to kill them when they go to sleep - "So, kids - you must NEVER go to bed at night when Mommy & Daddy tell you to!"

This is why: I went to bed at the normal time of 10 last night. I was sleeping soundly until 1:30 when every fucking four legged furry bastard-mongrel that wasn't sleeping peacefully in my house decided to act like they were Jerry Goddamned Springer Show panelists and have a barking riot for the next... two... hours... Then, after I'm rolling around in the bed - CRYING because I cannot get sleep - for the duration of this bullshit, I finally get settled and am drifting off when Avery starts crying. I jumped up because she dropped her Binky (pacifier) and it hit the floor loudly, then she started wailing. I went across the hall to her and picked her up. She snuggled against my neck and I held her for about 20 minutes until she fell back asleep. I put her down and rubbed her temples (this usually calms her down) until I was sure she was asleep. I knew by this point that I could forget going back to sleep, and it didn't even matter to me that the Twilight Bark was back in action by this point. I went ahead and got dressed and worked on the new layout for my friend's LJ page. It's not viewable yet, but hopefully will be in the next couple of days.

Here's to hoping I can make it through the day without hitting the wall too early, that the flu shot I'm getting today doesn't make me sick and/or run a fever, and that I don't have to kill any stupid people for bitching about utter nonsense within earshot of me. At least I get to go home to a clean house, of this I'm happy.

I sowwy. Do you ever take a nap when you get off work? I don't know if it would screw up your sleep schedule, but at least you might feel a little better afterwards.

I get awakened by Tigger. Normally he sleeps in my bedroom. If he's IN the house, he's clawing at the bottom of my door because he wants OUT. If he's OUT, particularly in stormy, rainy weather, he jumps onto my windowsill & claws at the screen, howling & begging to be let in. This usually occurs around 3am. I go to bed around 1am. I do understand.

Well then.. I'm glad I didn't stay over. :-)

I went to bed shortly after I got home and had a conversation with the parentals. I checked mail, breifly, then drifted off to sleep. However, I had this really tricked out dream that I would really like to relate to you later. (You were involved). Wasn't a nightmare, just a really interesting dream. I'm groggy and lethargic today, as if I didn't get much sleep, and I'm not sure why.

I have a beagle at home, and a huge one at that. One night, my mother left him outside to go to the bathroom at about midnight, and proceeded to fall asleep on our couch, thus leaving him outside to bark his little (or big) beagle head off. We never leave him outside long enough to bark, because, as you may know, beagles bark INCESSANTLY once they start. My neighbors called the police, and they came and woke us up to put him back inside...maybe you should try that if this is a recurring problem?

Worked for us! :)

PS-So sorry that you're sleepy. :(

No no no - MY dogs DO sleep in the house and are perfectly quiet in the evening and overnight, it's my asshole neighbors' dogs that are the problem.

I think she means you should call the police on the neighbors because of their dogs.

Poor baby. Hope you get some sleep later :). I know when I let my dogs out I let them back in the minute they start barking especially at night. Having 3 dogs I know what kind of shouting match they can get into with the neighbors dogs.
