It is 5:20 in the morning.
Why are you waking me up, Chooey?
Can’t you let me sleep at least another hour?
Chooey was not having it. He was awake and wanted Daddy awake as well.
After I turned on my coffee and dressed for the day, I wandered into the living room. Turned on the television to CNN to catch up on the news.
What does Chooey do?
He crawls up into the recliner with me. Chooey curls into a ball and goes back to sleep.
The coffee has percolated. I pour a cup and move over to the computer. Chooey hops out of the recliner, onto my lap. He makes his way to my right side and behind my back. Chooey stretches out behind me. Soon my little buddy is in Sand Land sleeping peacefully. Meanwhile, I am awake, wishing I was back in bed.
Such is life in Mark’s Den as another week begins.
That’s the way it is for me.
And how is your Monday going?
