Sleeping in the Recliner, Spirit and me

Since I got up at 7pm Thursday night, I thought I'd try to get a lot of things done early and come back to sleep at noon. I read Friday's paper but then got really sleepy and went to bed. I was so sleepy, I didn't even try to read the book. Loki and Junie still wanted balls, so I gave them each one. Junie lost her yellow one almost immediately but then Loki pushed his green one toward her, which took her about two minutes to lose. When I went into the workroom a few minutes ago, I found a purple one from Wednesday. I did sleep, but it felt like I was awake as much as asleep, alternating. I got up at 1pm and then got things ready to go out.

More and More Sleepy

Saturday's and part of Sunday's papers came while I was online and when I finished, I got offline and positioned them properly (almost a week's worth of papers) and then made a grocery list. I headed down to bed and read until 9am and then slept until 8pm. I wasn't planning to sleep that long -- I'd slept in the recliner for hours -- but I was very sleepy and still am.

Spirit has eaten small amounts of her food and water and delivered small bits to her litterbox. I'm going to watch carefully at least another day to decide what to do. She's alternating how she responds to me and the big kitties and I don't know why.

I've got laundry going and I hope to get at least half of last Sunday's paper finished. I'm sleepy over here, but when I was in the recliner I put my BP machine on and slept in the 30 seconds or so that the machine ran. The beep beep woke me up.

The Indiana State Fair had Sugarland set up to perform, but massive winds hit the stage and made it fall. There's been four dead (WP says three, CNN says four) so far, but they haven't gotten to all the people who are under the stage.
