Under the Weather

It's pouring outside, but that's another matter. I've been very out of it for several days. My old friend, Insomnia, decided to pay an extended visit, even though he was not invited to do so. Long story short, I've slept maybe six hours in the last four days. Is it making me crazy? Yes, it's making me crazy.

My mom said that, when she'd come into my room to check on me in my baby bed, I'd just be lying there, eyes wide open, watching the ceiling. She wondered when I ever slept.

I never did. Only thing is, I'm not one of those people who requires very little sleep. Would that I were!

Sounds weird, but my own chronic insomnia was a big reason that a teaching career was so hard for me. It's really hard to be "on" all day when you're going on just an hour or two of sleep. And medications are only of limited help.

Despite the fatigue, I did manage to go on a very short hike earlier this week. I'd posted pictures and a little story to go with them, but my internet connection crashed, and that was that. I'll post pictures a little later, when I'm not quite so disoriented.

Hope everyone has a good weekend! I'm going to try to get some sleep, myself!

Spring Flowers

I took a couple of days off from work last week, and I spent all day Thursday digging up a garden and planting flowers. It's been a week...
