Work~

Tonight is night three of four in a row I will be working this week and then I have Saturday and Sunday off. The work isn’t hard, not at all it is just staying awake that sometimes becomes difficult. I applied for a job at the school again and I don’t know if I will…

Today’s thoughts~

So it is that time of year again when all four of my children have birthday’s. We had Matt’s almost two weeks ago and we will have Brian’s at the end of February and then both of our girls in March. When we had Matt’s there never seems to be enough room in our living…

I don’t know why~

So for days I have been trying to get on this blog to write. On my laptop. It refuses to load. I don’t know why. So now I am in my den writing on my desk top computer. It is strange that I get on the blog page here but couldn’t on my laptop. Makes…

That Precious Sleep~

I got four hours of sleep last night and then suddenly I was wide awake.  Completely awake. I got up after laying there for over an hour and cleaned out my dresser drawers, and made a grocery list and cleaned my bedroom a bit. Then I lay back down at 4 and slept fitfully till…

Boardwalk Empire~

My husband and I started watching this show on HBO a couple of weeks ago and we are almost at the end of the third season. It isn’t wonderful but it is a decent show and I have started liking some of the characters. The biggest and brightest character was killed off at the end…

Exhausted~

Good Lord this job is hard on me. I NEVER feel like I get enough sleep and this working the grave yard shift just wears me out. Not that there is so much work to do, there isn’t…..it is just that I am not getting the sleep I need. And it makes me feel old….

40 years ago today~

40 years ago today I miscarried my first baby. It seems like a lot longer than that for me. 40 years. Man I wish I knew then what I know now. Life would have been so much different. Don’t get me wrong I would never change the birth of my four kids. I love them…

15 hours~

I slept fifteen hours last night. And man do I feel good today. I had been up 28 hours between Friday and Saturday and got maybe six hours Saturday night so I was in bed by 6pm last night. Yeah I know insane. But I needed it obviously. It is great to feel so refreshed….

Feeling half alive~

I worked last night so I have been up for almost twenty four hours. I feel half alive. I am watching my grand daughter and although she lets me rest I haven’t actually slept. My husband should be home with in the next forty minutes and then I am going to try to get five…

The Cat In The Hat~

The above titled movie is a favorite of my grandchildren’s. We have watched it about four times this week. And that doesn’t count that we will probably watch it Saturday night too. It is a cute movie. Alec Baldwin is in it and he does a great job. Mike Myers plays the cat and he…
