Every morning, my first alarm on my iPhone sounds with “One More Day” from LES MISERABLES. 45 minutes later, my second alarm is “Hello” from BOOK OF MORMON.
This morning, since I’d received the message of delays, and cannot go in to the middle school on a delay due to my afternoon schedule at home, I simply laid there, listening to the song.
Now, whenever “Hello” begins, the dogs all know it’s time for the day to commence. We start our own rounds of good morning hello’s with hugs.
This morning, after about a minute of “Hello” beginning as the second alarm, the dogs were becoming restless.
Although I had not physically stirred, I was keeping a semi-closed eye on the girls. Finally, Harrigan, who had been nudging me, and doing her little stand-off dance, could take no more waiting.
Harrigan stepped on to the night table, picked my phone up in her mouth, laid it across my face, and proceeded to nudge me, and growl. I burst out laughing, and began the day.
