This in turn causes me to toss and turn for the rest of the night listening to the house settle. I don't know what time I finally went to sleep. Then about 2:30, I awake to hear Zephyr coughing so up to give him some medications then watch his respiration. YUP, he needs a breathing treatment with the nebulizer.
By then hubby is up............ Tells me to keep the neighbors from calling at that time of the night.
I just nod and answer with my bloodshot eyes.
He is about to leave and comes back up stairs to tell me there is a sick or about to die cat - laying in a box - on the back porch. To be careful because it would not shoo.
WONDERFUL -- rabies is bad in this part of the country. Off he goes to work.
So, here I am listening for my boy to go back to sleep, counting the chores, homeschooling, and college requirements I need to do in the mid-morning.
It's wonderful to be alive at this time of morning........snore
