I wonder if there is a way to bottle the energy of a puppy, so that humans can enjoy the endless benefits. We wouldn't need caffeine -- just a "puppy pill." Because Scooter might get sleepy sometimes and he'll need to lay down for a short nap, but twenty or thirty minutes seems to revive him and he's back to running around the house, or chewing on the legs of my pants -- good thing denim is hardy.
Me, on the other hand, I need way more rest than the puppy. I know I said yesterday that I'm getting used to getting up early; well, I think I spoke too soon. I was so exhausted last night that I got home and went to bed at like 9:00. And truthfully, I'd been dozing since like 6:00. And you'd think that after all that sleep (despite the 2 am potty break) that I'd be revived at seven this morning, but no, I was not. After I fed Scooter, I just sat on the couch and looked blankly ahead for about a half an hour before I was able to motivate myself to get up and start doing stuff.
I suppose it takes more than a week to get used to completely rearranging your sleeping schedule, and when you're like me (who needs about 9-10 hours of sleep) that probably takes even longer. Thankfully I don't have to muster the energy for a run today, but I do plan on going to yoga this evening. But it won't get done until 8:30 -- wonder if I'll be able to stay awake through it.
