Wednesday and Bingo

Sure enough...I awoke at 2:00 and have not been able to get back to sleep. I have too much on my mind. It's 3:00 now and I am wide awake. I just got up and decided to try to just stay up.

I keep thinking about that ground beef in the frig at church. It is in a zip lock bag and has been thawed. I don't know who put it there but I suspect Leeann did. She takes food from the food basket to some elderly folks who are raising their grandchildren. They live at the trailer court. That meat will go to waste if she doesn't get it today while it is still red and get it distributed. I don't know why it is thawed and then left in the zip lock bag down in the frig.

It also concerns me that Missy scratched me and ripped open the end of two of my fingers.  She is entirely too aggressive. I was just trying to get her claw out of the fabric on the back of the sofa.  I am afraid she is going to tear my sofa with those claws. Instead, she tore me.

I took a melatonin pill in hopes of getting back to sleep but that didn't happen.

I haven't done any housework yet this week. I was just too tired on Monday morning and then I went to Marilyn's to help her with her computer on Monday afternoon. Tuesday I was too busy all day with other stuff. hair, lunch at Great China, a nap in the afternoon and also checking on my car insurance.

 I will need to vacuum sometime this week and I should change my bed too.  But today is exercises and Bingo and I will probably just do that.

I wanted to pay off my hearing aid this month but my car and apartment insurance is due the 17th this month so I will probably wait until next month and just make a regular $100 payment this month.  I can pay it completely off next month.

I did go back to bed at 3:30 and did get back to sleep. I slept until 5:30. I will be able to get some rest later today.

More later...

Karan called at 8:45 to say her ride had not arrived and she needed to get to her physical therapy. I told her I would be right over.  I took her and then went on to exercises. When I picked her up, she asked me to take her to the bank to cash a check and also to the City of Coffeyville offices to pay her utility bills. I did that and then took her home, went to the market for her and also picked up her mail. She had a bad day at physical therapy. Her movement is not as good as it should be and she is hurting more. The knee is still badly swollen. It has been three weeks and two days since her surgery.

Then I went home and fixed the barbecue brisket.  It was good and I took the rest of it to Marilyn R. and Karan. Then I went on to Bingo. When I got home, I took a nap with Missy.

Bob came over at 5:15 and watched the news with me. Diana had sent him his birthday gift so I gave him mine and the card too.  Denise called to wish him a happy birthday.

I took my bath when he left and watched TV with Missy until I went to bed at 9:00.

I have done that many a night...woken up, tossed and turned, gave up, went downstairs to read news or whatever until I can get back to sleep.

I have observed for all of my life that I seem to go in stages with this ( sleeping well or not ) and I wonder if I should chart it with the stages of the moon or something :)

Good idea, Deb. For instance, last night I took no Zyrtec and yet slept well. There's no telling why our sleep suffers as we age.
