Sleep Patterns...Denver Broncos...Cats...Books!

The Denver Bronco game did not start until 8:30 last night. The result of this was interrupted sleep patterns for everyone...every single one of us...with fur and without.

Tonkinese cats like Lucy and Roxie are very in tune to their "people". They rarely are off doing their own thing...they are very much in our faces all of the time. In our house if I leave a room...Lucy and Roxie leave the room. They love and adore Den but I have to be there in the actual room for them to stay. Even if they are tucked in their little kitty beds sound asleep...they only give me a certain amount of time to get back...or they are there! It's uncanny! They do not do this to Den. Football night causes issues. Lucy is not allowed we thought she would be happy if Den was downstairs watching his game and she could nap with him. That was not the case...she wandered and cried...most likely looking for me. He finally put her in the study and closed the door...this is where we keep her at night now.

That leaves Roxie...who wandered upstairs and downstairs...trying to herd us together. I must have fallen asleep during The Good Wife with Roxie next to me...because when I woke up it was 1:30 and Den was asleep in bed...Roxie was in her bed asleep and of course I was wired. I finished a book, began another, and then...still wide awake...I tiptoed to a guest room down the hall to watch TV...seconds later Roxie was with me and we promptly fell asleep with the TV on...sigh! This morning we are all grumpy!

Finished was written by a 67 year old first time author...his story is fascinating and while I loved the book...I strongly disliked almost every character in it except Rory the cat. It is truly a unique book.

Started this on the middle of the's a YA and so far so good.

Happy Reading!


  1. Interesting. I don't know if I could get into a book where I didn't like any of the people in it. But it must have had something going for it!

  2. What a cute picture of Roxie! (I have to admit, I wasn't thrilled with that book, myself.)

  3. I've added Lies You Wanted to Hear to my list....

    I love The Good Wife, and can't stand the lawyers at LG Funny how we take sides in shows (or books).

    Your cat "tales" are funny....

    1. Lucy and Roxie can be sweet, cute, funny and annoying all at the same time! I know what you mean about The Good Wife!

  4. Why am I not surprised that if you only liked one character- it was the cat. :) Lol.

    Great picture by the way! Love the glasses.
