It's after 6 AM and I still haven't been to bed yet. I haven't pulled an all-nighter since ... oh, don't tell me, college? I was in the recording studio for over seven hours tonight. What's up with that? MusicMan and I both had a lot of energy. I went in with the intention of doing a short version of a Christmas song so I could get it done and still have some extra time to record one of my songs for the album. Who knew a 2 1/2 minute song would take seven hours?! The first thirty minutes got my guitar and vocals. By 1:30 AM I started background vocals. Most of the time in between was spent with MusicMan hashing out a bass line and the two of us figuring out how to "burn to disc" on his new software. Definitely worth every moment!
When I got home at 3 AM, I noticed an entire Kit-Kat candybar and big chocolate chip cookie were missing! The remains of the wrappers were on the floor. I freaked out! [Why do dogs eat chocolate? Don't they know it can kill them?!] I've never seen Hunny so hyper. She ran out the front door, down the balcony-hallway, skidded and slammed into the opposite wall. From there, she made like Fred Flintstone, running toward the elevator - you know, where her feet were moving underneath her, but she wasn't going anywhere at first and then zooooom, out of sight! [This is my dog on crack!]
I know the signs of a "sick Hunny" [I know the signs of a "dying Hunny" - we've been through a lot]. Panting, excessive licking, dazed look, discomfort where she can't rest. Makes me a wreck! Doesn't help me when she's sleeping either because I'm constantly checking to be sure she's still breathing.
Usually Hunny does most of her rummaging [i.e. digging in trash, eating scraps, peeing on carpet] the moment after I leave her alone. It's been about fifteen hours since I left the apartment. My roommate spent a few hours with her earlier. And she's still alive. I'm sure she'll be okay. She might be very sick. But I'm keeping a close eye on her. [probably why I can't sleep]
I'm going to try to rest alongside her now. Goodnight(?) everyone!
