I'm so fucking tired. I guess that's one of the fun party favors that comes with an autoimmune disease. I have so much trouble getting and staying asleep at night and when I tackled that problem with melatonin, I have another problem take its place. I'm in constant pain and it's not just my back. I"m tired, I can't sleep, I have no appetite, which David rags on me about and I can't walk a straight line or drive because of my vertigo. I'm a fucking walking talking mess. Where does it all end? I'm sorry, I'm feeling bad for myself when there are others in this world with worse problems and I should be ashamed. I'm babbling on. Sorry.
Anywho, The puppies are all around me lending support. Lucy hasn't left my side since I woke up. She's sleeping with one eye open right now on the couch next to me. I kid you fucking not. She has been my shadow for the past 5 days now. It's funny because she's usually daddy's girl all weekend and she's been with me all this time now. Her ears are moving as I type this. She's listening to the birds and the windchimes. She's gone, fast asleep now. It's a lazy day today. Nothing to do because I did it all yesterday. So I'll probably surf the web looking for cool stuff to read or watch on youtube.
David is going to buy me some elastic so I can sew it to the fitted sheet corners. I have 4 sets to sew. Since we have that waveless waterbed it's smaller in the pocket size of the fitted cal-king sheets and we've and the corners pop off when we sleep. The elastic on the corners will keep the sheets on the bed and we/'ll have a better night's sleep. One more thing about our bed is that I put a large king sized feather comforter on top of the waterbed. It makes the waterbed feel like a soft fluffy feather bed except it has a comfortable hardness and yet softness to it. I feel like I'm sleeping on my grandmother's bed like when I was little. It's so wonderful.

I know, I know, License and registration. Oh, wrong one. I'm late writing this post. Sorry, I had a date with a
bloodsucker phlebotomist for a blood draw. The doctor said he would call me if anything was wrong. Why do I not feel good about that?
Anywho, I had a rough week with my back. I feel like I really pulled a muscle while I was doing my back stretches on Wednesday morning because ever since then I've been hurting like a bitch. I'm almost out of my pain meds and I called this morning for a refill. David will pick it up tonight on his way home from work. Overall everything is just peachy keen.
I'm in the middle of catching up on my Korean novellas so y'all have a great day and I'll talk with y'all tomorrow. Ciao Y'all.

I planted a pineapple top in the half barrel near the courtyard gate. It won't flower and have any fruit for about 2 to 3 years but I'm doing it anyways. This climate is perfect for the sun and humidity it needs. I've planted my flowering seedlings that I had growing in the laundry room over the winter. I'm hoping the squirrels will not dig up my plants this year. My tomatoes plants were dug up by the nasty varmints early this spring. I'm pissed at David because he didn't build my greenhouse yet. I also lost my mango plant to them this past fall. They are so destructive, but they are too smart to catch. Live traps don't work because they are too fast. I've been trying to catch them since I moved here. Nothing seems to work. But I'll keep trying.
Well, I said I would let y'all know how the melatonin + L-theanine worked out. It seems to be so much better than when I was taking the sleeping pills. I felt all hung over in the morning from taking sleeping pills and it would take forever at night for me to get to sleep and sometimes they wouldn't even work. When I take the melatonin combo I fall asleep in about a half hour or less. I don't wake up until 6 am, and I don't fall back to sleep after waking up. I feel like I got a great sleep. I won't be taking this every night. Only when I need it.
Y'all have a great day. I have puppies to take to the dog park. Ciao y'all.

Birdie most of all because I was desperate and heeded her advice. Oh, there were some pretty good ideas like Ol'Buzzard's advice of weed and/or liquor. But I needed help. So I had David take me to HEB and I found a bottle of Nature Made Melatonin 3 mg + 200 mg L-theanine. I will let y'all know how it works for me on Monday or Tuesday.
As for David he finally got to work on the yard. He sprinkled fire ant killer bate on the fire ant piles in the front yard, and then cleaned out his man cave/tool shed all because I bitched about it forever yesterday. He moved the car and truck out of the carport and sprayed wasp nests and now hes putting a rubber seal on the toilet in place of the wax ring and new bolts because the others were flimsy. I just had to bitch a while to get him started. Wow! Who knew?
Y'all have a great Easter holiday.

I am so freaking tired. For some stupid reason, I keep waking up at exactly 1:30 in the morning. YES! One fucking thirty in the morning for this whole week! I have no known reason for waking up at that ungawdly hour but it happens and then I can't go back to sleep. I've only gotten four fucking hours of sleep a night and I'm tired of this. I have tried sleeping pills but I still wake up and no more sleep. I've tried my teas and herbs and what not and still, I'm not sleeping through the night. Is this what it's like being over 60? Am I doomed? Can I wear this purple scarf with my jeans?
David is home for four days this weekend. yay!! I've made a list of things for him to do around the house outside and so far nothing has happened. I might have to light a fire under his ass to get him to do something. He's currently glued to the TV AND his laptop at this moment. YES!! At the same time! Me? I've started on my second laundry load, cleaned the bathroom, watered the hanging baskets and house plants, and now I'm done for the day. I need to get him going.
Y'all have a great day. Happy Easter weekend to everyone and I'll See y'all on Monday unless I have to attend a funeral for a close family member who won't mow the lawn right now. Ciao y'all.

I'm already going through withdrawals. Yes! I'm missing my favorite Sunday show The Walking Dead. It won't be back until October and that first show of Season 8 will be their 1000th airing. I hope they make it awesome.
Anywho, right now I'm waiting for this nasty storm front to grace us with its appearance this evening sometime around 7 p.m. Then it's going to be raining off and on all night tonight and day tomorrow. Dayum! I'm so fucked up it's amazing that I can even type this. I had to take 3 of my pain meds just to be able to function this morning when I only take 1 for my back pain. I'm nearly fried, but I feel great. Not an ounce of pain in my body. Awesome shit.
Over the weekend David took a drive over to Wally (Walmart) World to get a few things our grocery store doesn't carry. I like a certain type of wax melts that smell like you just baked a jazzilian cupcakes in your kitchen. Only Wally World Has them. David bought 4 packs of them. I also needed some scrunchies for my hair. It's getting too hot around here and I like to put my hair up in a bun. So he bought me a shit load of black scrunchies and some hair bands. I stuffed everything in one drawer in my closet. David said they should last me for about a week. Snarky bastard.
This is what I'm seeing out my front door while sitting on my couch.
My hanging basket with my petunias that lived through the winter and my roses, red, pink, and orange are all in bloom. I'm going to go out there in a minute to drink it all in. I have a load of laundry to fold first and a new load to start. Y'all have a great day. Ciao Y'all.
