Scary Awakening!

I've been trying to adopt some better living methods and one of these it to give up my old, old habit of staying up till the wee hours of the morning.

Thankfully, I am sleeping a bit better now -and can usually sleep for four hours now without a wake-up bathroom call -which is big progress over the hour and a half to two hours it was just a few short weeks ago.

Last night, I went to bed shortly before 1 a.m. and did fall asleep fairly quickly. However, my sleep was rudely interrupted between 3 and 4 a.m. and boy, I do mean RUDELY too!

I just about had the living daylights scared out of me when I was awakened by something very cold and very wet pressing against my elbow!

What the heck? Took me a few seconds to figure out what this was that had just pressed against me and woke me up, ya know.

Then I realized it was just Sammy, moving up a bit on my bed and he had just "cold-nosed" me!

I was so wide awake from that experience that I worried a bit at first that I wouldn't be able to fall back to sleep but thankfully, I did and then when I did wake up later it was almost 7 a.m. and time for Mandy and Maya to rise and shine to get Miss Maya ready for her first day of school in the FIRST GRADE! Can you believe that? First Grade!!! My sweet little granddaughter is gonna start FIRST GRADE today!!!

When she came downstairs, the look on her face was absolutely priceless as she was all SMILES -from ear to ear! She was so happy and excited over this big -and new -experience today. Just made me wish all kids could be that happy and excited over starting school.

I took a couple pictures of her, all dressed up in her "First Day of School" special outfit but right now, good old blogger won't open and let me post them so I'm gonna publish this post now without the pics. But maybe a bit later, Blogger will be nice to me and let me post 'em so you can see for yourself how cute she looked and how happy and excited she was too!

Finally got Blogger to allow me to post these photos!

Have a great first day, Baby Girl, in First Grade!

I was rudely pawed and nosed awake by Tesla this morning as it seems that his food bowl was empty. The horrors! Next time I have to remember to shut my bedroom door tight so he can't get in!

Maya looks so grown up and all ready for her first day of school!

Have a terrific day. :)

Hope her first day in first grade is special and she comes home with more big smiles.

Glad she looks so happy to be a first grader.
My two granddaughters are now year one and three! I cannot believe it!

Hope you manage better nights sleep. Have you tried taking up a radio with you and listening through a head phone? Works for me!

Nuts in May

HA! I know that rude awakening...Mr Tucker sometimes gives me the fuzzy wake up right under my chin.
