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.


  1. Good you're getting out with friends. Hope tonight will be better for you.

  2. Hi Kay..I am sure it is hard to sleep. But I am glad you have supportive friends. So glad to have you as a blog friend and friend on FB. That pizza place sounds good. Bee and I get to go out for a girls lunch tomorrow. I will keep you in my prayers.

  3. Hi Kay, prayers for you as you go through these hard days. But you have a lot of healing to do, physically and mentally. Give yourself permission to 'zone out' with TV or computer...or whatever. Thinking of you, Sheila
