Our weather is looking pretty bad for tonight. My plan is to take a long nap and then I can stay up with Rita and Vince can sleep since he has to work tomorrow and I don’t have to do anything except get a haircut.
My real plan is: Get the crate out, put it in the sewing room and stick Rita in there. She’ll be safe; we can sleep . . but Vince won’t even think about doing that. Maybe I’ll just sleep on the sofa in the sewing room with Boots and Vince and Rita can have the house. All kinds of options . . but we’ll probably both be up with her half the night. We’ll start with the Thundershirt and the Bach Rescue Remedy drops and just in case that doesn’t work . . I’ll have a bottle of wine chilled . . for me!
Really, I could sleep right through it but I try to keep her from waking Vince.
First, I hope the storms aren’t as bad as predicted and there aren’t as many as are predicted (11 p.m./1 a.m./4 a.m./6 a.m.) and second, let’s hope that whatever happens, there are no injuries or property damages. Spring storms scare the heck out of me . . after seeing what happened in Joplin almost 6 years ago.
Don’t worry about me . . we’ll be safe. I’ll probably be checking in bright and early in the morning . . maybe after having had lots of “Rita interruptions” during the night.
