Bad Sleep

Ken got the shopping done early this morning.  With my list, coupons, sales flyer shopping and rebates, he saved over $20!  This is about 20% of what he spent. Last night I made a list of what I wanted to get done today.  I meant to get up early, get to work, and keep at … Continue reading Bad Sleep

Rested but Tired

When I have dizziness, nausea, and headaches from lack of sleep, I know I'm reaching my limit.  Yesterday all of those were hammering my body pretty bad.  Still I closed my eyes and couldn't settle to sleep.  Instead of writing last night I watched tv.  I've not watched tv except for an hour with Ken … Continue reading Rested but Tired

Time Thief

There is a thief in my area.  He or she has been stealing time from me.  I’ll be working away at something – either at work or at home – and suddenly it is much later than I thought it was.  The other night is a perfect example.  Ken started the dishwasher before he went … Continue reading Time Thief
