Kay's Day - 07/12/2011
Had a hard time staying asleep last night. I stayed up until 11:00 pm watching TV and tried to go to sleep after that. Wasn't sleepy, so I tried to do a little reading, but only got through about 3 or 4 pages. Turned the TV in the bedroom on, but nothing was on, so I turned it off and tried to go to sleep around 12:00 midnight. It was too quiet, so I turned the TV back on. Finally fell asleep, but kept waking up about every 45 minutes to an hour and looking at the clock. I kept thinking I had been asleep for a long time, but it was just a few minutes each time. I was having strange dreams, but Ben was not in any of them. I don't remember any of the dreams now. Woke up around 5:30 am and tried to go back to sleep but couldn't, so I turned on the news at 6:00 am and got up around 7:00 am. Fixed a bowl of cereal and then went online and took care of a couple more of the credit card accounts with Ben's name on them. Linda came by around 9:00 am and we headed over to the senior center for the Grief Support Group. DeDee showed up about 15 minutes after we got there. Had a really good group today. Several new people and a lot of good conversation and information. After the group, Linda, DeDee and I went to Round Table Pizza for their lunch buffet. Seems to be our once a week place now. Got home about 45 minutes ago.
