Well, the past few days have not been good days for me. I can't sleep at nights. I go to bed so tired and I am up 2 hours later. I cough and cough, sometimes it is so bad I get sick. That has happened 4 times this past weekend. This cold/virus or whatever it is, is kicking my butt good. I lay down in bed, I wake up to coughing. I get up come in livingroom or go in kitchen and sit in either rocking chair or at kitchen table and in 5 minutes I am asleep. Am I one of those people who has to sit up all night in a chair just to sleep more then 2 hours? Is this normal? It is literally driving me crazy. I don't know whether I am coming or going half the time. I am getting the days of the week messed up. I actually woke Rebecca up for school this morning, and told Jim get up or he's going to be late for work. He says, Ummmm hun it's sunday. Oops. Maybe it's Altzheimer's or I am just losing my mind. The past couple days I have not used sugar, drank soda or any beverage with caffeine in it to see if that was the problem. Nope still can't sleep. Last night at midnight what was I doing? Cleaning my livingroom is what. Yesterday I was exhausted. It was 2pm, I told Jim I was going to go lay down and take a nap. I layed there until 3 and got up. I didn't nap. I am going to give it a couple more days, and if I can't sleep then I am going to see my doctor. It scares me to even get behind the wheel of my van. I know if I fall asleep I am screwed. I have a ton of housework to do and not an ounce of energy to do it. I started today. I got my dresser cleaned off, went through all my clothes. I am happy to say I was able to box up my 3x and 4x things because they no longer fit me. They were falling off, literally. I like my clothes baggy, but not that baggy.
It's back to school tomorrow for Rebecca. I hope her real teacher is back tomorrow. After what happened last week these kids need to get back to a normal routine. If I don't see her teacher I'm leaving the school yard with my child.
Dan finally seen a doctor for his back on friday. It seems the 5th disk in his lower back is out of place. Torn actually and he has to have it fused back on. He told the doctor to schedule the surgery as soon as possible. He recommends Dan put off the physical therapy until after the surgery. He gave Dan a prescription for Vicodin for pain. His body got to use to the percosets and they weren't working anymore. I just hope and pray that after the back surgery Dan makes a full recovery.
My niece Donna sent me cute pics of her son and her new baby daughter. My scanner is being a pain, so I have to get Jim to run the hardware again so I can scan pics. He still hasn't figured out how to get this web cam working. It just won't work in the journal chatroom. Grrrr.
Well, it is going on 11:30pm. I think I am going to read a couple of my alerts then try to get some sleep. Wish me luck that tonight I can sleep longer than 2 hours. I hope everyone had a great weekend. We're suppose to be getting a warm up this week. I sure hope so. I'd love to open a window or two for a few hours.
