Pride goeth before a fall. Specifically, I was all smug because for two nights in a row, I got 8+ hours of sleep, and I was starting to feel like THE KING OF THE WORLD!!! And then tonight, my beloved dog started barking like a fiend at 2 a.m., for no reason whatsoever that I can tell (I went down and looked, and there is nary a footprint on the freshly-fallen snow at front and back door). But now I am awake, irretrievably so, it seems, and I am justly repaid for my arrogance. I repent me.
