More Lack of Sleep

While I got more sleep going into Thursday, by the time I was done teaching, I was exhausted, and needed a few hours of rest (which I got) to regain energy. While I did not nap, I did lie down, and take it easy. When I was beginning to feel better, I started my laundry, and went back to resting. Thirty minutes later, I went to move my wash into the dryers, and noticed one of the washers had broken down while I was doing my laundry, and I had to move all the clothes in it to the other washer as I started to dry one load of clothes. I was really annoyed about this, especially since the transfer required me moving a bunch of wet, semi-dirty, clothes, geting wet in the process. At least the clothes finally got washed, freeing me this weekend to do other things instead.

Just a Saturday

Saturday I did a little of everything. I did my normal morning clean up, followed by taking some notes from several boos, before eating lunch and reading some more from Lombard. Then in the afternoon, I watched some television, read more, cleaned up more of of my place, and ate dinner. I watched more television after dinner and then went to bed.

All in all, a typical Saturday.

Except the headache from Friday tried to have a comeback a couple times. And once again, it was not debilitating, but it was enough there to make me notice it.

Yesterday was a beautiful, cool day. When I went to get my groceries in the morning, I noticed how much things had changed overnight. I was able to enjoy the lovely weather for most of the day, when, throughout the day, I would go outside and do some reading on a bench. When it began to cloud up in the afternoon and looked like it was going to rain, I decided it was time to stay inside. Since the laundry room was free, I figured that I might as well do a couple loads of my clothes. I thought that the rain would come and go while I did it. Of course, the rain only came later, when I was done with my laundry, and it was only a brief shower.

Yesterday, it got hot and humid once again. I don’t think it was as bad as before, but it shows the after-effects of Saturday’s storms were quite short. But they did help wash off much of the junk I got on my car from my recent travels. It’s not enough, though; it’s still dirty, and needs a real solid cleaning. Being a white car, it’s easier to see that.

While I did some cleanup on Saturday, I had to do more yesterday. Having been gone from my apartment for sometime, I had (and still have) catchup to do. More importantly, I needed some new cleaning materials to do so, and was able to get them on Saturday. I think I need to get a new mop soon (I have not bought one since I moved here). But if I get a new one, I am not sure what I should get — any of the new variety or the old standard?

Saturday, I did my weekly cleaning around my place. This morning, I need to do more — though it includes going outside of my apartment and into the laundry room. Of all the work which needs to be done, laundry is one I hate the most, and I put it off as much as I can, because all the folding seems to inflame my arthritis, making it painful to do.

Last night, I was tired, and went to bed about my normal time, but it didn’t help give me a normal night’s sleep; I woke up about an hour before normal, and stayed in bed, tossing and turning for that time. I suspect there was a few more minutes of rest in the middle of all that; hopefully it will end up being enough.

After study, working on my dissertation, and taking some time off to enjoy Iron Man, my apartment now needs to be cleaned once again. I especially needto make sure I pick up all the books from the floor. They have been multiplying all over the floor, as happens when I am working. But that just makes them hazards for when I am walking around in the semi-dark in the mornings.

I used to have a good sense of direction. If I have been to a place a couple times, I knew how to get there, even if I didn’t know the actual address. This ability seems to have vanished.

Last night, I was intending to go to movie night at St Matthew’s. I went early to make sure I got there in time. But I never got there. I couldn’t find where I was supposed to go. Where I thought I should go ended up not getting me there. I’ve been there before, when walking, but last night, I couldn’t find it. I walked for over an hour, in a light rain, and was only getting myself more and more lost by the end.

I guess I needed the sleep, instead. When I got back home, I ate, watched a bit of tv, and then went to bed.

Now today it’s time for some house cleaning.
