3:20 a.m. Bert, wired from breathing treatments, climbing all over me coughing but cheerful
3:30 a.m. Bert yawning while foraging for markers and crayons. He grunts for paper and commits to noisy dot making. Bert is 15 months old.

3:45 a.m. Following Bert's morning dose of suspended prevacid, I laid him beside frustrated Andy.
3:47 a.m. Andy emerges claiming that Bert only wants me. Not true. He only wants someone who offers comfort 99 ways until comfort is felt. Andy returns to bed to soothe
3:51 a.m. Crying stops as Tara, (the less annoying dog) initiates her own fit of retching in her padded kennel. Please don't fucking barf.
3:52 a.m. unlock kennel. Tara dashes through noisy doggie door.
4 a.m. Tara returns through noisy doggie door to kennel, probably barf free or she would attempt to roost on couch right in front of me where she is not allowed.

5:43 a.m. Looking forward to freecycling the giant box of unopened Homeopathic remedies in garage.
6:15 a.m. Oh wow. Are those menstrual cramps or is my stomach cramping in sympathy for Bert who just washed down 27 gold fish with 1.6 oz of Children's Tylenol?
