Pretty Good Day

Since I had taken a nap due to my headache yesterday afternoon, I had trouble going to sleep last night. I have never been into afternoon naps, not even when I was a toddler. My mom said she didn't put me down for naps because then I was awake all night and I'm still that way. I went to bed at 11 pm but was still wide awake at 1 am. I finally took a sleeping pill and I turned my TV on to the Music Choice channel and listened to “classic country music” which finally lulled me into sleep. Hiker finally woke me up at 6:30 am to go outside, but I was so drowsy that I went back to bed until 8 am. When we got up, I had some breakfast and then Hiker and I drove over to the Kaiser Pharmacy and picked up my blood pressure medications for the next 3 months. Hiker was so happy that she got to go for a ride in the car. When we got back home, I did a little house work and then went over to KFC and picked up some lunch to bring back home. I decided not to go to my support group today. I wanted to get some stuff done around the house instead, but I will go next Tuesday. After lunch, Hiker kept sitting next to me and barking at me and pawing at me. She does that when she wants me to do something. I decided she wanted to go for a ride or something, so we headed over to Placerita Canyon Nature Center and just walked around a little there. It has shade and dirt so it's not too hot and there is no pavement to burn Hiker's paw pads. That seemed to satisfy her because once we got back home, she stretched out on the entry floor and went to sleep.


  1. Hiker has the most sincere smile...
    I've had nights like that too...way too often. Since my back surgery, tho, I finally sleep like a rock. I can stay up til 2, get a few hrs. sleep and back at it to watch the sunrise.
    Have a great nights sleep tonight.
    Life IS Good

  2. LOVE that photo of you and Hiker.
