Some mornings it's just hard to shake off a "mood" - this morning was one of those mornings.
My older dog has this terrible habit of waking the house before dawn. She wakes my younger daughter first (she sleeps in her room) and after she gets out for her morning business she runs up the stairs and sits outside my door. Whining. Crying. Whimpering. It's beyond annoying and I don't know how to break her of the habit. If my daughter doesn't let her up the stairs, she sits inside my daughter's room scratching at the door and whining and being annoying. Either way, we don't get enough sleep. Ever.
And after a while it wears on you. Big time.
Today was one of those days.
My older daughter is traveling (again!) - this time she's on her way to Egypt via Istanbul and I can't help but worry about her. So, it was a night of tossing and turning for me, and there will be many nights like that until she returns safely on the 23rd. Say a prayer.
I'm tired. I need a really good night's sleep.
Today I'm going to post some simple things in my world that always make me smile. In the hopes that they will brighten both my day and yours.
And I know they will.
