Well Hmph

Just because I could not sleep in my bed last night, (Way too much coughing so vacated to the couch so that everyone else could sleep) does not mean that Morris gets my side of the bed. In the morning I looked in and this is what I saw... and head on my pillow even!!!
 Being rather tired from a very disturbed night, and the feeling tense because we lost a race in the America's Cup, the boys were late to school.
