Late Night Inspiration

I know there are lots of you out there who work hard to squeeze everything you can out of each day.  You are in my office, you are my friends, some are family members and some of you are the bloggers I enjoy following.  You wake up early because you are excited to start the day and work on something you live for.  You stay up late to get a little bit more done than you did yesterday because you are working towards something great.  The task you are working on may seem small in the grand scheme of that big goal and sometimes it may be a little hard to get your but into gear.  I am up a little past my bedtime, somewhat procreating now because I am writing a blog post and searching for inspirational quotes.  But, I thought what the heck, a little refreshing blog post to share some inspiration with everyone else who is working away right now to get some extra things checked off that to do list.  Happy working, experience, procrastination and success!

Starting Friday A Little More Tired Than Usual

Happy Friday!  I have to say, I am looking forward to the weekend and hoping for some R & R.  This week Tyler and I have not been sleeping very well, our fur baby Charlie has been rattling his cage and crying in the night.  Charlie has been crate trained since he was a puppy and has always stayed the whole night in his crate.  

Of course, as soon as we let him in from a pee, he will not go back into his cage and thinks that he can sleep in our bed with us.  To stop him from crying and allowing us to sleep, we have been bringing him into our bed with us.  I know, we are giving in and now we have a habit to break.  It is just so odd that this is happening now after 5 years.  I cant help wondering why he is feeling he needs to be with us in the night?

I also cant help but wonder what it is like to get a young child on a regular sleeping pattern, yikes.  I found myself thinking that our little dog Charlie was put in our lives to teach us a few lessons about how to disciple.  Right now I think he is winning but I will let you know how we do on breaking this habit.  Enjoy your weekend and your rest, I know we will.
