Why there is no new screen name today...

I felt like I was starting to come down with something yesterday. I might still be. Mostly I’m beyond exhausted because my cat is the root of all evil in the universe.

3:15 a.m. – MeeeerrrrYOOOOOOWWWWWLLLLL is heard in the driveway

3:15:05 – Debi leaps out of bed with certain knowledge that Mycroft (aforementioned root of all evil) is lying in a crumpled heap in aforementioned driveway. Has forethought to grab glasses on way out of bedroom.

3:15:10 – Debi runs out front door and misses first step. Ow. With foot previously hurt two weeks ago. Ow Ow. She hits the second step with the arch of said previously hurt foot. Ow. Ow. Ow.

3:15:20 - Debi limps 10 feet to the driveway. No cats. Adrenaline coursing through veins. Root of all evil may be shuffling off mortal coil, but is not doing it in this driveway. Bastard.

3:18 – Debi limps back to bed. Debi’s husband says “where have you been?” Grrrrr…

3:20 – Root of all evil shows up on deck outside of bedroom. Debi rushes to let him in. Debi THINKS it is him…it is unclear as he launches past her at supersonic speed. He goes back and forth like this several times, and Debi decides that if he is hurt, he won’t know it for a while. Debi wanders back to bed.

3:22 – Debi realizes her foot is THROBBING. Tries to ignore it.

3:25 – Husband does NOT take hint when Debi says “I guess I should go get an ice pack.” Debi gets up and gets an ice pack.

3:27 - Debi whines "My foot is cold". Husband has no pity.

3:27 - 8ish...There’s really no getting back to good quality sleep after this. Adrenaline sticks around. For a good long while.

8:30 - Debi checks her work email, makes sure the world won't end without her (it never does) and tells everyone she's not around today.

9 - 1:30 Did I mention there's really no getting back to good quality sleep after this?
