Nighttime Manners


The command came from Carter who was fast asleep in his tent.  (He has been indoor camping in the bedroom he shares with his brother for several weeks now in a pop-up tent.)

The loud command woke me up.  It was 3:00 a.m.  Ugh. 

I tossed and turned and had finally gotten to that heavy, almost sleep state, when his shout rang through the air.

“Thank you!”

Now I am up for good but at least I am proud of Carter for having good manners even in his dreams.

  1. Haha. How annoying, but at least the ending was happy. Maybe his brother was snoring, and then stopped? So good to see you. Have you been away or have I just been missing posts?

      You have not missed any posts, I have been away for a while. I did not mean to but I feel like work is so consuming, lesson planning and grading every weekend, that when I did have free time, I wanted to be away from a computer and hanging with my family. Believe me, I have “written” many a blog post in my head but have not actually wrote them down. This morning as I lay awake, I started thinking about blogging again and so here I am.
      Hope all is well with you and your family. Nice to see you again.
