Finally, Some Sleep

I finally got some sleep last night, thanks to the Ambien CR. I took a whole one as soon as I got home last night. I went right to bed, laid and read for an hour, then turned out the lights. I went right to sleep and didn't wake up until 11:30 this morning. I must have really been wiped out. I feel pretty good today. I'll have to see what tonight brings, as I am out of the Ambien and have not had a chance to refill yet.

Last night in my stop-off at Quick Check I talked some more with Diego and found out some more about him, plus that we have some things in common. Like me, he was born with only one kidney. It's even on the left side like mine. And he has to take pills for it, too. Small world. He also deals with low blood pressure, and only has four ribs on his right side. He let me feel it. It was weird. Unfortunately, he has no living family or relatives, which is worse than not having any friends in my opinion. How lonely that must be.

Today it is very windy. The wind blew my little car all over the freeway on my way in to work this afternoon. The temperature is starting to drop, also. It's only about 40 right now. I guess our warm spell is about over. It could be a cold hike that I take in the Pine Barrens on Saturday.

I'm glad that tomorrow is Friday. I'm ready for the weekend. It has seemed like a long week. They don't all seem that way. The next couple of weeks will probably seem long also, as it looks from the forecasts that we will be very busy at work. There is even a chance of some overtime, especially the last week of the month. Anyway, besides weekend plans that I already mentioned yesterday, I have to get to the grocery store, wash some laundry and clean the house. All things I just love doing.

Well, back to work. More later, perhaps.


  1. So why don't you invite Diego to do something with you, whether it be going out to eat, hiking, catching a game on TV, whatever. He'd probably appreciate it. Poor guy! Hope you sleep well tonight. Hugs.

  2. Not a bad idea. Might be difficult due to our big difference in work hours, but it's worth a shot. I hope I can sleep tonight, too. Thanks.
