TGIF – I’m tired as all get-out

I’ve read that insomnia is one of the parts of menopause.  It sucks.  Sometimes, after tossing and turning like a newly-caught tuna, I’m as sleep deprived as when I had babies in the house.

I’m hot.  Now I’m chilly.  I need the fan on.  I need to pee.


The cat wants to lay on my back.  The other cat wants to play toys on the bed at zero-dark-thirty.  I kick them both off the bed.

they are back in 2 minutes


I have a song in my head.  And it keeps repeating like on a cosmic 8-track tape.  If you don’t know what an 8-track tape is, you’re too young to understand.

I need to pee again.

I try not to play on my phone before bed, since that’s supposed to stimulate you rather than make you tired.  So I read.  Now I DON’T WANT TO STOP READING.

just one more chapter.

it’s 2am — I’ll get 4 hours’ sleep.  maybe.

It’s humidy.  I’m putting on the air.  It’s gonna be in the 90’s for a week anyway.  I better pee once more.

I fall right to sleep.
