Sleepless in California…

The hubby is ‘softly’ snoring, kids talking as quiet as kids can, and I cannot sleep. So I am here to ramble…

Do you ever feel like something is missing, or you forgot to do something important?  I HATE that feeling! I am not one to forget things, and yet lately I forget everything. My MS is messing with my cognitive  skills, and that pisses me off more than losing the use of my legs. Shit, even more than incontinence issues. I actually forgot to pay two bills in the past months. That is so not me. Thankfully we are never late and I got out of late fess. Get this, I even have reminders…and i still forgot. It’s the damn ‘some-timers’; sometimes I remember, sometimes I don’t! 😛 So, if anyone out there knows what I am forgetting to do, please let me know. rofl

This blog may be out of sorts, as I have no clue about anything. My girl Ruby made it through her 11 hour back surgery with flying colors, so no more worries there. Christmas is over and it was good, but YAY it’s over, so all good there. A woman needing help, got help thanks to Laurie and her call to arms at Facebook. So that is really good.

I am feeling sad about my good friend Lu’s father, passing away. I so wish there was something I could do to help her through this time. Lu. if you are reading, know you are in my thoughts and blessings and if you need me, I’m here! I cannot imagine her pain. That is the problem with having friends so far away, I cannot get over to her home and give her a hug. Love ya Lu!


I have so many thoughts going on in my lil head and cannot sort them out. ARRGGHH I get so frustrated when this happens. There is no sleep in sight and  deciphering my crazy thoughts. I start thinking about new designs for a bracelet, then POOF my mind goes to how can I get out and start doing some photography, then POOF thinking about a blog I want to write on finding my center. I try to concentrate on one, but then something catches my eye and I’m off to another dimension of space and time! lol

I have lil chicken scratches of things I think of and want to accomplish someday. I want a concert ukulele, but then I would like to try a zither or harp. I have heard the vibrations of musical instruments on the body help to center some, find a sense of peace, if you will. I re-tried to play guitar, but my hands were not strong enough to hold down the strings. We have a piano, which I mess around with, but it’s a lil big to have in my bed on bad days! So, I am looking for something small enough to keep with me. I need music in my life…

I figured by now I would be getting tired…NOPE. Just more goofy. Maybe it’s my meds. Ya that’s it, it’s my meds.

Hubby is no longer ‘softly’ snoring. Now he is buzz sawing it. It’s like razor blades being slid through my brain.


I just ordered a snoring mouthpiece thingy for him. I so hope it works or he will be back in sofa city soon. I see visions of me, a wrought iron skillet in hand, and his head. I am thinking ear plugs before that vision becomes reality!! I can still hear him even when he is in sofa city, even when I have my ipod on. The house shakes. I’m thinking it’s it the big one [cali, earthquakes], but no it’s just him…snoring! I have some earplugs from when I had my last MRI. They kind of rock. Better than the ones in the store. But they suck to sleep in. So, pray for the hubby that the mouthpiece works, or no more cal king bed for him!! mwaaaahhhhhhhh

OMG, so hubby is snoring. Not too loud now as the plugs are in, but now one of the 3 dogs just popped a HUGE bean and it stinks!! Holy man…where is the spray? rofl This is so life in my world. I love it! Loud and smelly and I would not change a thing. [maybe get some nose plugs too]

I need Mr. Sandman please. Hope he’s cute, maybe Gerard Butler cute. Maybe not, as no sleep would happen if he was my sandman!! YUMMY man!

Ok, so now going to go surf the net a bit more, maybe play a game or two and hope for sleep. For those who made it through my ramblings, bless you. You are brave! Now I bid you good-night!

Blessings and Hope…

  1. I’m with you, you know you can call me or skype me anytime…sometimes I’m asleep, sometimes I’m not and never for long, just an hour or two here and there, I am thankful that I don’t have the snoring issues, in a past life or two I had it, and like you I had visions of skillet meeting head or baseball or piece of iron….or 2×4 or….I better stop wouldn’t want to give you any ideas…

    Thanks for the shout out, I too feel for Lu, I still miss my daddy and he has been gone for over 20 years….

    Anyhoo I hope Mr Sandman came to see you last night…I’m off to go and vegetate (rest after my shower) then to make breakfast, then try to get to the mall….lets hope for enough energy….


    1. I do have a 20 oz bat next to the bed!! lol I would so skype you, but then i’d wake everyone up. hmmm we could text though!

      I am so sorry about the loss of your daddies. My daddy is 80 and I am so blessed to have him here!!

      Hope ya got an energy boost today!! We will talk soon!!


  2. The “Some-timers” is a great way to describe the roller-coaster memory issues… my friends tell me I have “old-timers”, but now I can tell them it’s ‘some-timers’.. LOL

    I so relate to the snoring hubby. Our bedroom is on the opposite end of the house than our son’s and his is in the front of the house, while ours is in the back of our house, yet he can hear my hubby snoring so loudly it wakes him up.

    I’ve considered the frying pan too. LOL

    You had me laughing so hard… I understand about the dog farting in bed too… Kodi sleeps between us with his head resting on my ankle, so his butt faces our heads….. whew! There are sometimes when it’s so bad, it makes the eyes burn. LMBO

    Hang in there girlfriend! oxox


  3. I agree with the above post. Personally I cannot see why you would not want to make an effort in this regard anyway. Only the other day, at work we had exactly the same conversation and came to a similar closing


  4. This web site is actually quite good, but for some reason it does not display properly when trying to view on my Nintendo Wii. If it helps, the console uses the Opera browser and am forced to using the console for accessing the Internet whilst my PC is away being repaired.


    1. TY Isaac. I originally used opera on my mac and it viewed fine. Now I am using Firefox and it is fine.
      Not sure why it would display badly for the Wii. 😦
