Long Night, More Sleeping

I was online until about 10:30pm and finished the paper, plus watched a show I had recorded, so I got to bed at 4:30am. I read until 6:30am, but then came to get the paper and read the grocery flyer as well as watching the last 30 minutes of the local news. I heard a bit of Today and then got to bed at 7:30am. I set the alarm for 2pm, but it just wasn't enough sleep; I turned it off and slept until 4:45pm.

I took the trash and recycling out and went to the ATM to get money for next week and planned to get a vanilla cone, but Nathan's was so crowded that there was a long line all around his parking lot. I figure I'll have a Klondike square later or something.

When I got online, the nephrologist said that he had missed the zero and it was <2000mg salt daily. That makes a lot more sense. I got the cat blankies started and was typing an email about 9pm when I couldn't understand the words. It's always been reading words before, so this is a bit new. I went to bed and when my phone beeped for me to take the later meds at 11pm, I got up and took that while watching the late news. I moved the cat blankies to the dryer and put a batch of my clothes in the washer. I think I'll be up a bit late tonight, too, but I don't have to go anywhere tomorrow.

The Army has finally let the non-special soldiers get rid of the hot warm berets except during formal events and go back to patrol caps.

Harold Camping, the guy who thought there'd be a Rapture on 5/21, has had a stroke and is having slurred speech. Plus, he's getting a lot of anger from relatives of people who gave him all their money. He says “I don’t have any responsibility, I don’t have responsibility for anybody’s life. I only teach what the Bible says.”

Lot of Time in Bed, Not Much Sleep

I finished online at about 4am last night, so I just left the newspaper and went down to read. I finished the book at 6:30am and came out to bring in today's paper and watch the last bit of the early news. I turned the lights out at 7am and planned to go right to sleep, but I kept hurting so much I had trouble getting to sleep. I'd already had some narcotics at 4:30am, so I couldn't take more until noon, and the alarm was set to 2pm. But I'd finally started sleeping by 2pm and just turned it off and got up at 5:30pm.

I don't have to go out today, but I didn't exactly gain more time. I haven't done anything other than pet cats and be online, except take an early dose of narcotics, hoping they and the regular ones will keep me asleep through the night and let me get up at a reasonable time.

When I finish online, I'll start reading both newspapers and then I'll probably feel like I should go to bed early.
