MY DAY: 3:30 AM…

These are the moments I treasure.

3:30 AM nature break. Does anyone still say, “nature break?” Ive not heard the phrase in years. So, I woke, rose, walked the few steps to the bathroom to relieve my bladder.


Grateful I didn’t relieve the bladder in bed, I was especially grateful to see Bailey snuggled next to Chief as they slept.

When I rise each night for my nature break ritual, The Sisters generally respond and stir around. Chief at least opens his eye(s) to acknowledge me and probably hope I leave him alone. I generally pet him.

Then, Erma.

Erma loves her naps and sleep time. She physically sets up her own “do not disturb” sign, readjusting her posture to ward off any communication. Sometimes she will even cover her face with her paws when she sees me coming toward her.

But, this very early Saturday morning, Bailey snuggling with Chief is just sweet as can be.
