Hmm, Cricket has some explaining to do. :)
Last night I listened to the wind howl and pelt snow against the windows. My husband snored peacefully, unaware of the storm. I heard a cat meowing and got out of bed, fearing for a kitty that could be out there and prepared to bundle up to rescue him. The thing is, it sounded like Billie. Sometimes she wakes up meowing as if she's had a bad dream. Downstairs I found Billie, just awake, blinking up at me. Just in case I went from window to window, looking for pawprints in the snow and listening. Nothing. No sign of a kitty anywhere. Whew! Well, now Cody was awake along with Billie and they wanted a snack. Hey, Momma's up why not?
Finally, I got back to bed and my husband asked, "are you just coming to bed?" *-*
"No, I'm back from investigating noises and I can't sleep because of the wind."
He mumbled something and promptly fell back asleep, then resumed snoring.
Everything is closed today. Blowing snow, below zero windchill, and glazed iced on the roads. My Daughter let out a hoot of joy when she heard school was closed and went back to bed. My Husband stayed home from work. I am so tired. I'm either going to consume lots of coffee or take an afternoon nap. Maybe both. ;)
I've said it before and I'll keep saying it until the tulips bloom. I want Spring!
