Anti-Sleep Conspiracy?



I drove my husband and daughters to the airport this past Saturday and that meant I was alone with two big dogs and six cats. They were all very needy because there was only one person at home to cater to their many needs...
there was no dilution factor.

The trip went well for them and I picked up my family on Tuesday and I thought I'd finally be able to get some sleep that night... then I wrenched my left knee that afternoon (all I did was turn abruptly) and couldn't sleep no matter how much Naproxen and Ibuprofen I took. I was elevating my leg in the living room, but it was very sore even when I kept it still.

I finally dozed off and my husband's phone phone alarm went off at 3:45 am and wouldn't stop until I stumbled over to the office and shut it off.

It was the worst night's sleep I've had in weeks.

*sigh*

Let's hope tomorrow night will be better 'cause I can't take much more. Bad knee or not, I may just fall asleep on my feet.

Sometimes bad things seem to happen all at once. And then months and years go by when all is well. Best wishes for your knee and your life to heal. We feel your pain.

It's clearly a conspiracy.

Jan: Thank you for your nice wishes. It's a case of crazy concinnity. My poor sleep is legend and so are my bad knees from so many years of running and tennis. They ganged up on me this weekend.

LL: I don't want to blame the vast left wing conspiracy, but leftists were seen hanging around my house over the weekend. I wonder? ;)

Sleep deprivation is horrible! I set my phone alarm for a meeting Tuesday and awoke before it went off so never noticed that it didn't go off. This morning, a day I could sleep til noon if I wanted, the alarm went off because I had selected Thursday instead of Tuesday. Luckily I am retired an will take a nice long nap this afternoon:-)

Kid: Thank you for the prayer. My poor hubby set it while up in Cape Cod for 3:45 am because they had a long ride to the 7:00 am flight from the airport in Providence. He thought he had turned it off :(

Sandee: No luck on the sleep front yet, but the knee is feeling a little better today. I'm still hobbling around, but the pain isn't excrutiating like it was on Tuesday.

Cube - Sorry about your bad knee. I hope your animals were on their best behavior since you weren't feeling well. Take care of yourself.
