Awake...Again

I can’t sleep, so you win, Bloggersville. Damn leprechauns.

Well, you win, sort of, since I’m trying to catch up a little on writing. And maybe post twice in two days. There isn't a rule on content, is there? If so, I'm busted. It’s almost 3 a.m., and I’ve slept about 30 minutes tonight. I don’t know what’s going on, except that. work. keeps. cycling. through. my. brain. like. a. maniac. and. will. not. leave. me. alone.

So, each time I think of someone I haven’t called on, or need to visit, I put them on my crackberry calendar. Right then and there. Which insures that my alarm will be going off all day tomorrow, reminding me to do all the things I dreamt about (or thought about when I tried to dream) tonight.


I even took a natural sleeping pill at midnight, which, at the rate it’s going, should probably kick in about 6 a.m., when I should be up getting ready for work.

Zack the Wonderdog has his vasectomy (neuter) appointment later on this morning at 8 a.m. Life should be interesting later this afternoon, when we get him home. I was reading up on what to expect after surgery and found out that you can actually buy prosthetic testicles for your dog. ThatManILove has been teasing about getting them for Zack so that Zack won’t lose his stud dog look, but I think (and hope) he’s teasing.


Anyway, I’m going to go count green sheep now.


Again.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I've mostly had female dogs, but I had one male and had him castrated. And kept worrying that he'd suddenly want to wear pink ribbons.... He was fine though.

Good luck getting through the day sans sleep!

K said...

Good luck with the sleep.

When I'm stressed I can't sleep either. I've spent many a night writing incorporate sentences.

tardevil said...

Don't you hate that - when you can't sleep. I think the dog will be ok w/out the fakes. Have a happy St. Paddy's day!

Good luck with the sleep, blame it on the hormones.

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Simplicity said...

OK! I'm HERE! Let the party begin. I love green beer!

I went to sleep at 3:30 am and sneezed myself awake at 7:45 am. Stupid allergies.

I hope you're not too tired today!

As for the content: If you're bloggin' it, we're readin' it!!

Good Luck Zack!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you got some sleep.

I am so relieved to know I'm not the only one unable to sleep. I slept like a total of 2 hours (in small doses) all night. Even though I'm exhausted, I cannot seem to get to sleep & stay there. What is up with that? It's making me crazy!

Balls, schmalz. He's a male and we all know how fond they are of their (ahem!) body parts. It won't effect him much. Hopefully. At least he can still sleep!

Chatelaine said...

I'm always having trouble sleeping. Melatonin helps sometimes and it's not habit forming. Have you tried that?

Hope you get some shut eye tonight, girl. (and me too)

Junosmom said...

Oh, I'd so like to be in that photo - just for a moment.

Gwynne said...

Prosthetics? As in strap ons?! Oy, what will they think of next? That's hilarious. You've gotta know it was a man that came up with that one. ;-) The sad part is when they come home and continually examine (and lick) their privates. For weeks. But in the end, he'll be just fine. Will Zanna also be altered?

Tiffany said...

Happy St. Patty's Day!!! And that is such a gorgeous picture.

Vodka Mom said...

I'm with you girl. I can't keep up......I'm exhausted.

Anonymous said...

Weiner prosthetics.....Well....you can always go the cheap route and tie a hot dog on the base of Zack's tail.......
just sayin'!
He'll be ok - Zack's a good guy.
cherie.

Sandi said...

Not sleeping is the worst! I feel you girl!

Get your hormones checked. Mine are out of whack and I pay the price with sleep, sex and emotions. Hormones SUCK!

Lunesta! Sorry you're not sleeping well.

Warped Mind of Ron said...

Sorry about the sleeping, try Nyquil. I know it's not meant for that, but it's good stuff. And Ouch.... poor wonderdog.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Aren't they called Neuticles? Why I know that, I am not sure...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Pepsi said...

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!!!

jill jill bo bill said...

OH, That MAN will buy them and he will never leave them alone, Fiddling with them all the time, just like every other man would do.

Fragrant Liar said...

Fake testicles? You know if there's something dangling there, Zack is going to be licking them, right?

Hope you had a most wonderful St Patricks Day!!
