It’s only thursday, huh? Seems like it should really be friday already. But then again, when I started typing this entry, I thought it was wednesday. That’s about how screwed up my internal clock is.
If this is what it’s like with a 2 year old dog, essentially a young adult in doggie years, I can’t even begin to imagine what people with kids/babies go through.
dog gets up, walks around, jingles tags. lays back down.
3:40 am – 4:00 am.
dog get sup, walks around, tries like hell to wake me up. paws up on bed, nose in face.
whines. walks around to other side of bed. same act. gets no response from either of us.
I get up, dress for walking the dog. Go downstairs.
poop. on the floor. in a circle. much poop.
guess miller was trying to tell me something around 4am and I should’ve listened.
after cleaning up poop, take dog for walk. he poops again, but not in a healthy way.
feel bad for miller. he’s not feeling well. he’s well behaved and was REALLY trying to tell me something at 4am. next time I’ll listen.
this lack of sleep thing is getting to me though and I’m headachy and cranky and just generally listless. . .it makes operating a motor vehicle not the safest thing in the world. I’m sure I’ll get used to it. adjust. I’m sure miller will get used to us. adjust.
we’re already leaving him out in the house at night and yesterday, when I tried to shut him in the back room, uncrated, for the day, he managed to get out. moosebraying found him chillin’ on the couch when he got home yesterday with minimal damage to the house. . .just a few things that were left out that he chewed on, but nothing crazy. So today, I’ve decided to leave him out again. 10+ hours is a long time to spend in a crate. . .makes him nutso. . .being out in the house makes him more chill.
I hope he’s feeling better soon. I hope I get some more sleep soon. A solid night with no waking up.
work to be done here at the office. lets see how long I’m able to focus today. yesterday I made it until about 1:00 before my brain shut down. it’s 10:30 and I’m not quite sure how much longer I’ll be able to make it. especially with this headache that doesn’t seem to be responding to medication.
