Likely meandering thoughts

I am awake at an unseemly hour (at least for me). I was up at a little after 4 a.m. with a bad case of insomnia. I didn't go to bed until nearly 1, so I am working on approximately 3 hours of sleep (if you don't count the couple of times I woke up in the meantime. What this means, I'm not sure. But one thing is for sure, and that is that I will not have much power of concentration today.

Since I was up anyway, I decided to tackle the mountain of laundry in the laundry room. And I do mean mountain. I like to see instant results, so I put the big things like comforters and blankets and towels in first. Which is great because it does get the mountain shrunk faster. What's not so great about it is that the socks often get lost and don't get washed until I find the laundry room floor again. Then eventually, no one has socks, and I go to the store and buy some. Then I find the laundry room floor and I am overrun by socks. It's a vicious cycle.

And since I was already up, I felt like I should be working on my mom's crochet bag, but seriously, I am not sure I can concentrate enough to work on it. And I need to. Really. I missed a whole day of crocheting yesterday because I was doing major manual labor moving furniture and big time cleaning. In fact, I am paying the price today in my hips. Oh, they are sore. I should have medicated before going to bed. The pain probably contributed to the insomnia. But I love the new bedroom furniture very much and it will be so nice when the bedroom is actually finished. We sure aren't there yet.

And now, my toes are getting cold because the air conditioning vent is right behind my chair and the cold air is blowing under my chair and freezing my toes. Maybe I should turn the air conditioning back up a little. Or I could go find slippers. There is a whole box of my socks sitting right in front of me. Huh.

And now I think I need to post a picture, just because maybe I will feel better if I have something pretty on this page.

There we go. How about a Jamaican sunset? I could live there. Warm water, fresh pineapple, soft sand under my toes. ::Deep sigh::

I hope you've had better nights of sleep since you posted this. That picture makes me feel good, too!
