Something Has Gotten Into My Head

I dunno what the hell it is, but it seems to be keeping me awake. I’ll figure it out I guess. I went to bed after 1130 and here I am. At Quarter of TWO! I even took a benedryl and nothing...

Argh.

________________________________________________________________


Cleaned the kitchen and Dining/Living area on Saturday. I need to vacuum yet. Tomorrow *today* perhaps. The Offspring got me this organic, biodegradable counter cleaner and I finally gave it a try. The kitchen (and as an added result, the rest of La Casita) smells pretty good. The smell was knocked out by the roast I cooked in the crockpot for a while, but now since I’ve cleaned that up, it’s back. Nice.

________________________________________________________________


Had friend KD over for the Superbowl and we chowed down on it pretty well. A good deal of it seems to have disappeared, so I assume it was good. Still have enough of the roast and the veggies to last a few days. I’ll eat well at least part of this week. *grins* I had a couple of scotches over ice preceding the half time meal. Another good thing.

After some research I ordered some (waaaaaaaay) less expensive hearing aids from Amazon (or one of their merchants) over the weekend. Based the purchase on the good reviews and the cost. As well as the customer service reports too. They should be here in the next couple of days. We’ll see.

I have some other things to post about but since it is now two in the morning, I think I’ll save these for another post:

The cliff

That Damned Credenza

Fitness (mine or lack thereof)

Am I going back to school or look for gainful employment.

Michael Palin’s Travelogues.

Gonna try to get some rest again as I am feeling some what sleepish now. Sleepytime I kinda like you...

Well, I hope you got to sleep. At my daughter's I had a hell of a time. I should have slept very well seeing as I was really physically tired. But no. The first night I didn't get to sleep until 3 or 4 in the morning. The next night I had nightmares for the first couple of hours - until I was woken up by a young woman screaming in the back packer's next door. (No, she wasn't being harmed). They just live in a noisy suburb. Light is even worse, and there's a lot of light in the city. I was comfortable, happy, why no sleep? Dang middle age! I had quite a good time despite the lack of sleep. Swimming in the pool sure kept me refreshed and awake!

That's really good you tracked down some waaay less expensive hearing aids, too :)

You have some really good proposed future topics up there; I sure hope you get to post about them!

I did, but it can be elusive sometime.
Well I've yet to see about the hearing aids. Supposed to be delivered in the post tomorrow. Hope they work well.

Oh, that's good. I hate going to bed at night, very tired, then lay there and NOTHING HAPPENS!

Sleep - I hope you find it soon. Been eluding me too for some months now. Sigh.

I'm curious about the hearing aids - my hubby needs to have his hearing checked IN THE WORST WAY. If he sticks his head in the sand any further he'll pop up in China. :)

Michael Palin rocks - are you watching the new Ricky Gervais program - "An Idiot Abroad." I'm still working out how "in on the joke" the guy really is. Some of it is hysterical and some is mind scratching - pure Gervais. Science channel saturday nights at 10pm.

Got nearly 6 hours. About all I can manage in a night theses days. Sometimes less.

Watching MP's Himalaya series. He got altitude sickness about the same way I did in the Rockies. That was a pretty nice trip.

Haven't caught An Idiot Abroad yet... The ads make the guy out to be a right fool.

I've been waking up a lot at night.. I think just too many thoughts from work jumbling around.

Hope the hearing aids work out :)

You know, once I get to sleep I tend to BE asleep for at least 5-6 hours. Doesn't seem like much, but it appears to be enough.

Yeah and the Hearing aids? I hope they work out too. If not well, I suppose I can return them.
