Ok, so I probably should admit what a ditz I am... I haven't posted anything in a while, not because I didn't have anything to say, cos heaven knows talking is never an issue, but because...
I FORGOT MY PASSWORD.
I had no clue how to fix it, tried for a while initially with no luck, and finally got so frustrated I just gave it up... sleep deprivation might've been part of the problem, but I left it alone for a couple of weeks. This morning, after a really scary number of hours of sleep I felt like trying again, and whew, finally SUCCESS!
I'm dealing with furnace problems... not a massive problem, because I do have space heaters that will "do" until I can get things fixed... I'm glad I have the microfleece sheets on my bed... those things are worth MY weight in gold. I never have that initial OMG THESE SHEETS ARE COLD sensation anymore... I crawl in and it's instant snuggliness. Regular sheets are terrific in the summer... I actually like that blessed instant of cool...but this time of year, I'll just pass on the holycheeetthat'scoldddddd dance, no matter how much it amuses the dog.
Speaking of Sage, I started wondering if dogs have midlife events like people... I say this because she's 9 (do the math...lol) and all of a sudden she's started waking up in the middle of the night, barking a few minutes so that I can share the joy, then she does the circle dance and plunks right back down on her cushion and goes back to sleep. No clue why... I figure it's either dog-opause or maybe we're on the night time prowl path of a skunk or something.
