So I am really trying to get back into posting regularly and have been having no luck so far... But as a way to try to get myself moving again, I have made a couple small changes around here. One is my official "About Me" page that you can get to by clicking on the link at the top... Here you will find a list of factoids about me... A long list. I can't remember why I started it, but once I did - I couldn't stop... I updated it so that it would be more accurate to me today. If you took the time to read it, you would know more about me than you ever need to... :-)

The other change is my 2011 Books tab. I love to read and I love my Kindle. I go through phases where I don't really read very much, but I am trying to get back into that as well. Right now I have been re-reading the Sookie Stackhouse books that True Blood is based on. Complete brain candy, but they are quick, easy reads and I enjoy them. You can check their randomly throughout the year to see what's new. I'm really curious to see how many books I can read in a year... I've never kept track before.

Now onto the randomness....

J is on call (seems like he ALWAYS is...) and got called to a job. Yuck. He was able to talk the back-up guy into coming to help, so hopefully he won't have to be there all night. Poor guy.

I am REALLY looking forward to my long weekend this weekend. I realize that I just had a week off for the holidays, but any time not at work makes me happy.

I sometimes wish that I had a crap load of money so that I could actually punch people in the mouth when they make me angry... That way I wouldn't have any worries about them suing me... hahaha (I swear I'm not violent... Some people just deserve a smack in the mouth)

I love my new pillow that J got me for Christmas. It's an "Arm Sleeper Pillow" and basically has a tunnel to put your arm through so that you don't put so much pressure on your arm. My elbow on the side I sleep on most had been bothering me and the pillow really seems to be helping.

I've been sleeping terribly lately (not related to the pillow - I think work stress...) - having a hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. Last week I slept through the alarm almost every day - not a usual thing for me, but I had gotten so used to being able to roll over and go back to sleep after J got up for work while I was off for the holidays that I just wasn't hearing it.

Now this week, I've been having weird half-awake "dreams" that I fully wake up half-way through and have no idea why I needed to do whatever it was I was doing. One night I fully woke up half-way through letting my hair down and re-doing my pony tail. (I always have my hair in either a pony tail or a braid when I sleep unless it's wet.) The next night I woke up half-way through taking off my elbow brace that I've been wearing to sleep to help my elbow feel better (I stopped wearing it for a while when I first got the pillow, so I know the pillow is definitely helping, but then I hyper-extended my elbow a little and needed the extra support). I don't know why I felt that I absolutely had to do those things... Apparently my brain does weird things while I sleep sometimes...

Well... that's all for now... I'm going to try to go to sleep. I'm hoping that I will be able to get my brain to shut down, but I'm afraid I'll lay there wondering when J will get home.

Have a good night! :-)

  1. Wow. I hope you're sleeping better by now, sweetie. There's nothing worse than not getting enough sleep. That pillow sounds great...I'm gonna have to look for that.

    Hope hubby gets to spend more time at home as well!
