Got a surprise when I came home from work...

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I heard a sound last night about midnight that sounded like a large tree falling and I even looked out my bedroom window and didn't see anything. Even when I went to my car this morning I didn't see anything. When I came home from work, a very tall pine tree had been torn out by the roots and fell on a neighbor's house but it did not appear to have damaged it....the tree was uprooted with a huge piece of dirt and it looked like it just tipped over onto the house across the street.

The wind has died down somewhat compared to last night and I hope when I go to bed shortly (8:00 p.m.) I get a decent night's sleep. Everyone at work was pretty tired today...I guess the wind did a number on a lot of people. Some people lost their power and quite a few traffic lights were out of order today, too.

One good thing, though, it's Thursday tomorrow and then Friday!!!!

Tired cause of the wind???

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

There is a tree growing too close to my bedroom window and we are having violent winds starting yesterday. Last night (last report I heard) there were gusts up to 48 miles per hour. So there's this small tree growing too close to the house by one of my bedroom windows and I could have sworn it sounded like a squirrel crawling around and scratching inside the wall and this morning I went outside and thought a large tree had fallen on the house but it was just this tree scraping the window and side of the house.

Needles to say, I didn't sleep very well cause with every big gust of wind I was wide awake.....

Tonight before I go to bed I am going out there and cut off the branches that touch the house...hope I can eliminate at least most of the irritating noise.....

    Good idea to trim those branches back. It can be scary at night when you hear the scratching on the side of the house--especially in your bedroom.

    We've had the wind too! I'm glad we don't have trees close to the house. Eliminate the noise if you can. HUGS!

11 hours of sleep....last night

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

I went to bed about 5:30 and woke up a few times and alarm went off at 5:00.... I am feeling better than yesterday when I had slept only 3-4 hours.

Sleeping 11 or more hours really cuts into one's day. I would like to sleep about 8 hours every night but as long as I am averaging that it is a great improvement.

Not much time to blog again. I was on time for work yesterday and am trying to turn over a new leaf... emoticon

    You are on the right track - you will get that sleep schedule nailed down.

    Once in a while you need to listen to your body and do what it needs. Hope you get on to a good sleep schedule now.

12 hours of sleep...getting caught up on sleep debt....

Sunday, October 24, 2010

CPAP is helping me a lot and I hope to get caught up on at least some of my sleep debt. I am grateful I did not have to wait any longer to get help for my sleep difficulties as I was getting so run down and felt weak and tired most of the time. This weekend I got almost 24 hours (actually 23) of sleep and am feeling so much better.

I am glad I am living in an era of modern medicine as I probably wouldn't have survived to this ripe old age of 64 had I been born 100 years earlier. emoticon

P.S. I had a recipe accepted on Sparkrecipes.com...it is called Chipotle Egg Sandwich...it has mushrooms and low fat cheese and is a tasty breakfast (I had it yesterday and today).... LMK if you like it. emoticon

    It is amazing how sleep loss can lead to so many problems for us. Try to picture how your Great Grandparents lived and survived. I can't imagine the things they did that to us are completely unfamiliar.

    Something as little as not enough sleep can really take a toll! Here's to better sleep! HUGS!

    It really is amazing when you think about it, isn't it? Medicine has made such strides - it certainly gives hope for the future.
