Sleepless In Spokane

Well it was another one of those nights where sleep fails to come my way without some real effort. 

This time it wasn't Mom or anyone else, it was just me. It's tough at times getting my mind to shut down. Perhaps it was the three failed installs of Windows 10 that had me down. Each time it took a 3 gig download then ran to about 35% before crapping out. Kinda pissed me off I guess. Well really, wasting an entire day did piss me off. 

It was well past midnight before I drifted off. Thankfully I'm reading an ebook on my phone so that gave me something to do that didn't require noise or lights. I'm on the second book of the Mars series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The movie "John Carter", came from this series and it's one of my favorites.  

This is a bit of topic but I think it's well worth sharing. I found these books for free at Project Gutenberg. This site has over 49,000 free ebooks and they come in formats that will work in most e-readers. 

Okay, anyway I slept from about 12:30 to 3:00 and again I was up over 30 minutes, then back up at 5:00. I'm not worn out as bad as I thought I'd be today, but I'm getting there with a lot left to do.

Along with this, Mom was up bright and early about 6:30. After asking what the squirrels were doing outside and a conversation about why the cats can't go out (she actually read the sign on the door), I had her heading toward the table where her coffee and paper sat waiting. 

I told her I would cook her some breakfast while she sipped her coffee, and out of the blue she asked "is the kitchen busy today"? Well we were in the kitchen and it was only us in there, but whatever, I told her the kitchen was busy today. LOL 

One other thing I'd like to share. On my cigar blog I there are nearly 100 coffee reviews done over the last two years. If you love coffee the way I do, hop on over and take a look at my Coffee and Tea page. 

Well I guess that's about it. I have a three cigar reviews to write, Mom needs to get up for lunch and  I need to start working on dinner soon.

As always thanks for reading and have a great day!

Glad to see you dealing with your mom better than I am my dad. The neurologist put him on two meds that have made all the difference in the world. After the second, Numenda, there is no more losing his place in time. I guess Colville/Arden will be his home forever, no matter how long he lives elsewhere. He was always wondering if we were ready to "head up the hill." I know this reprieve is temporary. I try not to think of when the effects finally wear off and the disease catches back up.
