Quiet Day, Restless Night

March 31st, 2017 at 08:22 am

Had a quiet day yesterday. My only spending was a load of laundry for $1.50. I went out for coffee with DIL, but she paid. It was rainy and cold, a good day to cuddle up with a good book, which I did.

My new payment from TIAA will hit today. I don't know exactly what it will be, because I don't know how much they will withhold, but I am expecting it will be just under $300. My bank sent me another warning about my low checking balance, but it should be rectified today, when the payment shows up. The reason the balance is low is that the automatic payment to the gas company slipped in there. I've got money in savings, but I just don't want to transfer again. It is only a low balance, not overdrawn. And nothing else can possibly be automatically withdrawn until the 6th, when my Medicare supplement payment is withdrawn.

I had another awful sleepless night. I had coffee in the afternoon, so I suppose I can blame that, though I've also had terrible nights when I have had no caffeine at all. At least I don't have to go to work, or babysit! I can have another day cuddling up with a good book! And try to avoid napping so I don't have another sleepless night.

My BFF is going to come to visit on the 6th and will stay a couple of days. Really looking forward to her visit, but since it is before pay day, I will be trying to keep spending down as much as possible. Variables spending is at 35% right now with 26 days to go. And I have a dentist appointment to pay for. Which will probably be too high to cash flow, but I would like to try.

    There are some nights I just can't get to sleep, and I have cut out the caffeine, turned off the devices earlier, and even read before I went to bed and I still can't get to sleep. Then I don't want to get up after I do. I think it must be either a mind issue where I can't turn it off, or a problem as I grow older. Hope you can get some rest tonight.

    Good idea to save your $$$ before your BFF comes down so that you have a bit room for spending on fun outings when she visits Smile.

    I don't have issues GOING to sleep - my problem is STAYING asleep. This last week has been particularity bad for me. I haven't had soda in nearly 6 months. Sleep issues stink.
