This is just a short update with some odds and ends. I can’t sleep so I decided to write a bit.
1. After reading Andrew’s last entry, I resumed writing that short story from a few posts back. I can’t believe that was 2 months ago. I thought it was just a few weeks ago. The difficul (aside from the fact that writing a story is just plain difficult) part is the original entry was written without a story outline. I just had an image in my mind and wrote a story about it. I need to write something so I figure I might as well see how that story will turn out.
2. In other news, my doctor’s office called me with some news. I’ll be going in for a medical treatment (a non invasive surgery) in a few weeks. I don’t want to think about it but I am somewhat nervous. I don’t like needles, meds etc… but this treatment is one that I need to have. I read up on it, talked to my doctor(s). And while it’s non invasive, it’s still a surgery. I just hope nothing bad happens.
3. My insomnia is full blown the past few weeks. By the weekend, I’m just so tired. The time change this past weekend didn’t help. Instead of sleeping at 2AM, I now fall sleep around 3AM. And yeah, I’ve been having odd dreams. Rats and mice showed up in my dreams a few days ago. And dreams of my dad too – usually in his last days. I’ve gotten to the point where I don’t want to sleep.
4. You know what’s odd about working from home and having a really quiet day? I don’t talk. A couple of days ago, someone from work called me around 3PM. My voice cracked when I answered the phone. I realized I haven’t said a single word all day.
It’s almost 2AM so I guess I better call it a night.
