Yesterday was warm(er) and sunny in Tennessee yesterday and I worked in the yard awhile, trimming shrubs and trees. With all I had handy - rusty hedge shears.

It was harder than I expected, but I felt very proud and accomplished when through.

Later I paid for not letting a neighbor or my FiL show me how to sharpen them.

By the time I went to bed at 2 am, my neck and shoulders were aching. And the aching kept increasing. Could not find a comfortable position without pain.
All I had was Tylenol, which did NOTHING ! (I am allergic to NASIDs)

I would lay in bed, tossing and turning. Finally getting up, sitting up awhile in the recliner, watching junk on tv and putting junk in my mouth!
The recliner was a LITTLE more comfortable than the bed, but I just couldn’t
get to sleep there either. I need a BED for sleep!
Repeated a couple times.

Then Jack got up at 7. At 8 he went to meet friends at McDonalds for their weekly breakfast. After a goodbye kiss, I went back to bed.
After almost an hour, I groaned and got back up. Again.

Jack returned at 9:30 with a new treat for me – McD Steak Breakfast Burrito.
Entering into the food diary, I found it was 570 cals! SO NOT WORTH IT!

Then Jack went with friends to Good Friday services. I was TOO TIRED.
So after scarffing down that burrito, I went you-know-where. Again.
But by then I had drunk regular Cola. And the caffeine kicked in.
After almost an hour, I groaned and got back up. Again.
Or maybe I was just so aggravated and keyed up.
Same difference - NO SLEEP !

Jack returned about 2 after making a stop for prescription meds for us for April.
Too long without sleep, I went to bed. Again.
But, this time – thank goodness! - I drifted off.
Sleep is BEAUTIFUL !

But I woke at 4. Did the phone ring? Dozed back off.
Woke again at 6. Bathroom pitstop. Jack was leaving to walk at the mall, since it has been raining all day.
Wanted MORE sleep, but decided to eat dinner then Spark and try to get to bed EARLY tonight.

But you know how addictive Spark is. And I am (STILL) behind on emails.
So now it’s 10pm and I MUST get back to bed and back to sleep.

Fellow Christians:
Hope you had a Great Good Friday !

Jewish Friends:
SO SORRY that I am late wishing you Happy Passover !

Have a Wonderful Weekend !

    I so hope that your body has shut up by now. That is so frustrating! I had a similar night last night, but mine was from that pot of tea that I decided that I needed cause I was cold. The silly things that we do to our bodies! Hope your having a wonderful Easter!
