>The sleep thing is acting up again. I didn’t sleep well most of last week, then Thursday slept very late and since I had to be up and dressed by noon Friday, it was easier to just stay up all night. Last night, I went to bed about 2am and slept til 5pm. This is the sometimes pattern. Up all one night, sleep way too many hours next night. I’m having a lot of pain again, too. I think it’s the result of moving things around and going out a couple of times, so maybe it will get better again.
I am kind of discouraged by all the negative reporting and comment about Obama. He’s only been in for a month, I think people could hold off calling him a failed president just a tad longer. It also irks me that the people who stood by and let us get into this mess are now criticizing him for trying to fix it. Partisanship lives, to the detriment of all of us. It’s too bad.
Days are longer and brighter now, but it’s still pretty chilly, and I think we’re in for some more snow today. Everyone keeps saying it’s been such a long winter, but it’s only February, and winter is as long or short as it ever was. It snows in winter. It’s cold in winter. That’s what winter is. Get over it. Besides, I like snow. So there.
Gertrude the Timid has gotten a lot more playful lately. She loves the fish on a pole that I dangle for her to bat. Where Simon would play for ten minutes or so, she can play with that for an hour or more, depending on how long it takes for my arm to fall off. I can type with one hand and dangle with the other, so computing and playtime coincide well. She is a good cat, but I still miss my Simon. One thing she does that seems weird to me is she’ll look directly into my eyes for quite a long period. Usually I’m the one who looks away first, because I’ve read that animals don’t like you to look into their eyes, but I’m not sure that’s the case. At least not with her.
I like my new homemaker. She is funny and seems to do a good job cleaning, even doing a little extra that isn’t on her job description. I hope it works out. Sometimes they start out well and then gradually start slacking off over time.
I’ve forgotten how many eps are left of Galactica. I want it to be over, so I know the outcome, but I don’t want it not to be on anymore. It’s such a good show.
I’ve read books like that. I can’t wait to finish so I know what happens, but then when I’m done, I wish there was more of it to read.
I’ve been up since 5 yesterday evening, and now it’s nearly 7am and I think I could go to sleep but then I’d sleep all day again and be up all night again. I wish I could get in sync with Mother Nature. I don’t think people are meant to be nocturnal animals. *smile*
