Zoey is my canary

Zoey has taken to sleeping either up by my head or down by my feet.  Every night. All night.  Until last night.

I replaced the comforter on the bed yesterday with a duvet and cover that has been in storage for a while.  When I got into bed last night, I realized it was kind of musty and was sorry I hadn't Fabreezed it but I was tired and sleepy and said 'fuck it'.  Zoey hopped up on the bed but before I was asleep left and didn't come back.  Weird.

I woke up once coughing but went back to sleep.  But a couple of hours later, I woke all the way up and realized that I'd been coughing for a while.  Zoey was nowhere to be found.  The duvet cover!!  I threw it off and dragged a quilt out of the quilt chest and went back to sleep.  When the alarm went off, I realized that the coughing had stopped and Zoey was back in her spot.

Next time I'll pay closer attention. If she's not there when I sleep, check/replace bedding!!

Today is swimming at 8:30 and then I'm meeting seattlejo for breakfast.  It's been way too long since we've had a good visit.

There may be a grocery visit. I don't really need anything but this may be the last day before it gets too crazy to get anything until the end of next week.  There will absolutely be a complete sniffing, re-evaluating, sorting for Goodwill of all bed covers.  I have lots of options and it's time to cull anyway.  I sure don't need to sleep with shit that makes me cough.
