Another Day

January 12th, 2018 at 07:01 am

Yesterday I spent $16 on gas and $1.50 on laundry.

Today I'm headed to the doctor (which will cost a whopping $5) and then to my second grandson's MLK program. I'll probably grab some fast food in between, as I am fasting for a possible blood draw, but I'll be starving by then.

Last night I attended the performance of the high school orchestra. My elder grandson (11) played in one of the selections. I watched his bow, and he was definitely playing what everyone else was playing! It's so nice that he gets these opportunities to play with a more advanced group. Afterwards he gave me a big hug, and he's usually not demonstrative in public. He was so proud of himself.

I got my Discover cash back payment - $15 - which I added to the snowflakes. It should appear in my bank account in a few days.

I've charged $67 to the new card so far. I have to spend $500 to get the $150 bonus, but I have three months to do it. My trip to Florida in February will take care of a lot of that.

As I was going to bed last night, we lost power. I looked out the front window and it was the whole building. Then I looked out the back window and it was the whole neighborhood! Not sure what happened; we had a big temperature drop last night, but it wasn't windy or stormy or anything.

The power came back on after a few hours. I trust everything in the fridge and freezer is all right. I did have to re-start the aquarium's filter by priming the pump, and for a while it seemed like I wasn't going to be able to do it. I do have an extra pump on hand for the day that it dies.

Another bad night's sleep. Wish I could figure it out. It's not related to caffeine. Is it possible that any kind of stimulation in the evening makes it hard for me to settle down? It does seem worse if I have an evening event.

    A cup of chamomile tea and a 3 mg melatonin helps me get to sleep!

    It's worth a try! Though melatonin has not helped me in the past.

    Melatonin has always knocked me out!

    I'm sorry your not getting good sleep. I can sympathize.

  5. Bluebird Says:

    CB, melatonin may take a couple hours to be effective, so taking it earlier in the evening may help.

    Sorry about the sleep issues. I have noticed that I have problems for about a week once a month and it doesn't seem to matter what I've done beforehand. I wind up getting up and reading for a few nights. I'm beginning to think it is hormonal. I should probably track it on a calendar.
