What in the World

....am I doing up this time? 

1:45 am. WWII pains shooting through my body and fears and anxieties racing through my brain. Old age aches compound the issue.

I  ought to be asleep.  I ought to be bed. 

I had two and half hours sleep.  Not enough.  Morning is so far away.  I am surrounded by people who care and surrounded by all  my toys.  I should sleep like a baby.  But the tapes in my head keep playing their endless loops. 

My biggest problem is "what shall I play with, tomorrow."  I have no job to hurry to  I could sleep until noon like two of my tablemates.

At least, I am not keeping anybody else up.  I just took a pain pill, I don't want to take a sleeping pill on top of that. 

I am shakey and clenching my teeth to keep them from chattering. Baby, it's cold outside, but nice and warm in here. 

I wonder what is on TV?

3:15 am.  Here I am again.  This is getting to be an ordeal.  But I slept since I wrote the last paragraph, anyway At least AOL has new material on the opening screen. And why did the size of type change?.

Seven am.  I am up.  whew. what a night.

Sorry to hear about the dreams !
I'm disabled and have all day to think about what to do next.
It's a never ending battle with boredom !
Have a great day Chuck!

Hey Chuck. Are your WWII dreams common, or are they triggered by the physical stress you are currently under?

I at least got some sleep last night.    It is nearly 70 degrees here in S. Illinois with a cold front coming in tomorrow.    The sky is dark and my dog is out in his pen and was just distrubed by a distant sound and is howling his response.    My back feels like shattered glass this morning and I am now going to lay on my board and cushion and read.    I hope we both get to feeling better soon!     mark

Have you ever tried playing pogo games when you can't sleep? You can mute them and not bother anyone. You would be surprised who is up playing dominoes or word whomp is good exercise for the mind. Hope you have a better night tonight. Paula
