Not sleeping is such an aggravation. The last few nights I’ve awakened about 3 AM and been awake for about an hour or so. I don’t really know why. This morning at 4 AM I was hungry, which was weird, so I got up and ate some grapes.
Last night I took an Ambien, well half an Ambien, at 3 AM because I knew I had to get up and be at the dr early to get some fasting lab work done. It took me half the day to shake it off. I had the refrigerator repair guy coming over to fix my icemaker, again, (which was in itself a total aggravation on a fridge less than 2 years old). And we were getting a delivery of a new mattress foundation at some point. Luckily, the refrigerator guy came early, and after he left Dan said he’d wait for the other stuff and I went in to bed and took a nap and slept it off.
It was a good thing I did, too. Because we went to open mic night and I would have hated to miss it, or to be sitting through it wishing I was in bed. It was such a fun night. The guy who is our local poet passed around a clipboard with paper and a pen, and asked everyone to write on it “what pushes your buttons?” Then he made up a poem, improvised completely, when he got up to take his turn at the mike. The whole night was fun. There were lots of performers who are only here in the winter, so it actually ran a little late. It was a nice night too, in the 60’s.
What else aggravates me? Not much, really, any more. I’m learning to leave behind things that are an aggravation, and to accept that some things just are. Some things just are, like the stuff in my blog yesterday called WTH. (I should own up to the fact that at first I called it WTF, but I’m trying to clean up my mouth.) Those things are really more of an annoyance than an aggravation though. Except not sleeping, again. THAT’s an aggravation. I guess I’ll head back to bed and see if I can get back to sleep.
Here’s a wish that your aggravations today be small. Love and light to all.
