Why is my mind fully engaged at 2:30 am? Worries and concerns mounted up after a relaxing weekend. Was it the worrisome call at 8pm about a brewing situation with the non-profit board that I sit on? Not sure...but went to bed thinking "why can't people just get along and treat each other nice?" I hate drama.
Probably not, and I hate to admit this but I watched 6 hours (off and on) of "Breaking Amish". I hate reality shows and never ever watched a full episode of any of them. But these people where just so bizarre and pitiful. Not because they were Amish, but because they were so screwed up. I wanted to see less drama and more peace & joy in their lives. I am swearing off this kind of TV. Not helpful, not enlightening, certainly not entertaining.
So, back to my current issues:
1) off my HBP medication for the 2nd day. Somehow my prescription didn't get shipped for a full 10 days and I ran out. Should I be concerned? Monitoring it closely. After all it is one of my goals to get off it.
2) not sleeping very well and waking up every 2 hours. I think I have the answer to that one. Need to eat my handful of restful almonds and take 2 tylenol before bed.
3) going on vacation starting Friday and concerned about inability to track since I am taking nothing electronic that will allow me to do that. Think I will still take my pedometer, though.
4) break in my normal routine. It has been my habit to get up at 4:30am, pack my lunch, make a cup of coffee, read my daily devotions, scan the newspaper, do the crossword puzzle, take my walk/jog, shower and dress and hit the freeway by 6:45. But now the newspaper delivery delay has thrown that reassuring routine out the window. Maybe it is time to save $30/month and cancel the rag...after all the only real reason I enjoy it is the crossword puzzle and I usually turn on the TV news as I dress. Besides, that routine will be broken anyway with vacation coming up on Friday.
All this sounds pretty stupid...but I worry
