9:55 – cat falls asleep on feet
10:02 – I move feet, readjust blankets
10:04 – cat falls asleep leaning against legs
10:06 – this is actually tolerable, so I do nothing
10:09 – cat starts taking a bath. SHLURP SHLURP SHLURP.
10:10 – I nudge cat with feet, cat stops
10:12 – cat resumes bathing. SHLURP SHLURP SHLURP.
10:13 – I stick feet under cat and wiggle furiously
10:14 – cat just lies there, because she is the laziest cat
10:15 – I give up, cat resumes bathing SHLURP SHLURP SHLURP
10:16 – I push cat off bed
10:18 – I realize cat will probably come back in and start the whole thing over, so I get up to close the door
10:25 – the cat starts scratching at the door
10:27 – I decide to put in earplugs. Too bad I no longer have any on my nightstand (and by “nightstand” I mean “Rubbermaid storage box”)
10:28 – I find earplugs in the bathroom and return to the bedroom, where Kevin asks if I can open the window a crack because it’s a little stuffy.
10:30 – Window opened. The blinds won’t close.
10:32 – I end my battle with the broken blinds and leave them gaping and crooked because I just want to go to sleep
10:33-5:55 – sweet, precious sleep, only occasionally interrupted by the fact that these earplugs kinda hurt
5:55 – MORNING ALARM OH GOD WHY
5:56 – out come the earplugs. Out in the hall: “MROOWW scratchscratchscratch MROOWW scratchscratch”
