WTF? Wednesday

It's 6:54 a.m. and already, it's been a very strange morning.

We woke up at 4:00 because Bunny peed on our bed. Not good. Not good at all, but hopefully it's something we can teach her not to do. She's just six weeks old and it was probably too soon to take her from her mother and expect her to be a big girl. Not that we had much of a choice; it was either bring her home now or let her be taken to a shelter (or worse).

Shane is usually up by 4:15 for work, so getting up at 4:00 was not much of a change in his routine. I don't usually get up until 6:30 or so, but because the bed had to be stripped, I decided to stay up this morning.

I'm glad I did, though, because at 5:00 there was a knock at the door. It was an unplanned visit from my parents! No, they are not insane for being out so early. Mom had a 7:00 cardiologist's appointment and they'd (characteristically) made it to town early after their 90 minute drive to the city. In spite of the hour, I was happy they stopped by.

Did I mention that today is Shane's and my anniversary? We've been married nine years. With all the commotion this morning, I didn't really expect him to remember. He forgets things on a normal day. But he called at 6:30, just as he was getting to the job site, to say Happy Anniversary. I'm impressed!

You know what I want most for our anniversary? Nothing tangible. Just a few special moments of rest and relaxation. Most people would call it a morning nap.

I thought 4.00am was a myth that joggers invented to make themselves seem less like a bunch of nutters.

Happy Anniversary.

Tug: Not yet. LOL!

Leanne: Oh, believe me. 4:00 a.m. is VERY real. Unfortunately.
