More Nightmares

Song: Song from 1980s Finesse Shampoo Commercial (stuck on very short loop, sigh…)

Mood: 6.5

Nightmares: 2?

Ghosts: Lots

I fell asleep on the couch again last night. I don’t know what’s changed – I don’t go sit on the couch because I’m tired, I’d much rather go to bed. I wake up hours later, phone on my lap or the floor (sometimes still playing a show), and stumble off to bed. This has led to quite a few days of sore throats and headaches and poor sleeps. I’m considering whether I should set an alarm on my phone to remind me (or wake me up and remind me) to go to bed.

I had more nightmares (tent) last night, too. I remember two – the first one wasn’t too bad but the second one had me up on my feet and feeling that inner tube winding tight around my chest. I was already out in the living room with the lights on, which I think was good, and after I calmed down I went to bed and held onto J until I fell asleep.

I woke up a couple of hours later and got out of bed an hour or so after that, then started my day. I spent quite a bit of time with the music way up… I hope the neighbours don’t hear it, and if they do hear it, I hope they don’t mind. I don’t turn it up until at least 11AM and it’s turned back down around 4PM.

J has an electronics project for me and I spent a good amount of time working on that. Some more stuff got printed, some more stuff got written down, and some more tidying got done. I’m starting to get better at timing things so I start thing A and let it go in the background while I work on thing B, etc.

Tomorrow is Thursday… I don’t think I have anything specific going on, but there is a lot of stuff to do so I intend to keep busy. I think I might volunteer again on Friday for a little while, but we’ll see how that goes. I like helping but at the same time I don’t want to waste my (or their) time if nothing is getting accomplished.

Stay safe.

  1. We can spring that trap: let me know if you would like some help turning that couch upside down for a few weeks.
