Today Is Tuesday
Could not go to sleep at all last night. After I watched “Rizzoli & Isles”, I went to bed at 11:00 pm. Turned on the TV in the bedroom like I always do because I've gotten to where I cannot go to sleep without it on because it's just too quiet in the room without Ben's snoring. I was channel surfing for about 30 minutes then decided to turn the sound way down to where I could just barely hear it and tried to roll over and go to sleep, but it didn't work. I kept tossing and turning and finally got up and came into the living room and turned on the TV in here around 1:30 am. Watched 2 episodes of “The Golden Girls” and then tried to go to sleep again. By now it was 2:30 am and I still could not go to sleep. My eyes were so tired and were burning. I finally took a couple of Tylenol because I was getting a headache and about 15 minutes later, I fell asleep. Woke up around 4:30 am and went back to sleep for about an hour then woke up again. Laid there staring at the ceiling, so I finally turned on the morning news. Stayed in bed until a little after 7:00 am. Got up and had breakfast, then waited for Linda to get here to go over to the Grief Support Group. DeDee didn't go to the group today as she is helping a friend pack to move. Like last week, the group was very crowded and we had a couple of new faces again. I was hoping I didn't fall asleep because I was just so tired from only getting about 2 hours of sleep. Also had a bad headache from lack of sleep. After the group, Linda and I went to have lunch and then headed home. She had to get home a do some laundry. When I got home, I found a package on my front porch. It was a sympathy from my friend Candi and her husband. It was full of “comfort foods” which is exactly all that I am eating now. It was so sweet of them to send it. I am trying to sell an Recumbent Exercise Bike and a 36” Exercise Trampoline and I had put it on Craig's list yesterday. Had a voice message on my phone when I got home, so I called the person back and got their voice mail. Tonight I'll watch “Hawthorne” on TV before I try to get some sleep.
