Still Having Trouble Sleeping

Song: “One Headlight” by the Wallflowers

Mood: 7.5

Nightmares: 0

I’m still having a heck of a time getting to sleep. I’m tired when I go to bed but for some reason I just can’t get to the point where I nod off. I think I got maybe around three hours of sleep last night. I fell asleep this afternoon while I was listening to some records but it was only for about half an hour. I need to get more sleep soon. I’m not in rough shape or anything yet, but if this keeps up things will start getting bad again.

Sleep aside, my day went well again. I spent quite a bit of time listening to records. I’m just about caught up on my “to listen” pile. I think I’ve said this before but there’s some music that just sounds better with the clicks and pops that an old record has. Old country music is a really good example.

It’s quite mild outside today so I went for a short walk. Nothing extreme, just around the neighbourhood.

After I got back, I spent a little bit of time at my electronics bench, mostly just taking a quick mental inventory of what I’ve got on hand. It still needs a lot of cleaning up before I should use it again.

After that, I spent some time reading the biology book that J gave me a while ago. It’s been quite some time since I last read it but I really enjoy it. I find biology (and microbiology) fascinating. It amazes me that we’re just big bags of chemicals and electrical impulses but we can do things, talk to each other, and think.

J and I have two episodes of Community left. I’m going to be sad that it’s over (again) and I hope we watch it again sometime. We need to figure out what we’re going to watch next, though. Maybe some Columbo. Maybe we’ll go back to watching old westerns again. I’m not sure. We’ve got lots to choose from.

It’s supposed to be warm but windy tomorrow. I might hop out to the garage to finish tidying it up. It’ll be a lot nicer to do that now than when it’s -25C.

Stay safe.
