    I had to get up at 7:30 this morning to take my cat to the vet for yearly checkup and shots, so of course I wasn't sleepy last night so was still up at 2 am. Then with the time change I woke to the sunlight an hour early.

    I didn't sleep well this weekend either, because I had two mornings to sleep in so of course woke early and couldn't get back to sleep.

    Now my cat is asleep in my lap and I am sleepy too but have to be up in an hour to get ready for Pub Trivia. We haven't played in a month so I don't want to miss this week. I know I'll wake up once I get there and get some moscato(sp?) but for now ... yawn.

    My cat just woke up to go eat lunch so I think I will lie down for a quick snooze.

    It's only the shank of the evening here, but I woke up at 5:30 this morning and never got back to sleep so I got on up. Stuck finger, made coffee, fed cat. Now I'm too sleepy to do laundry, partly because I had chicken salad for supper and partly because we had a really good long jam session earlier practicing for Christmas.

    I may put off the laundry 'til tomorrow night. It's not like I don't have any clean underwear ...

    Cool, a new washer. I would love to have one right here in my apartment. What kind are you getting? I think the ones here are Maytag.

    "Beeko"? "Becko"? I had not heard of that brand before so I Googled them.

    When I was at college we had Bendix washers. I don't know if they're still made but years later when I first heard the term Benelux out of context I thought it was a luxury brand of washing machine.

    After being up 'til 2 or later this morning, I only slept 'til about 7:30. Sigh. Maybe it was the caffeine in the diet cola last night.

    I hope you slept well, @PatsyB . I slept 'til 10:30 this morning (Sunday), then fell asleep reading this afternoon, then kept dozing off while trying to watch a boring TV news program tonight. But somehow in the intervals of being awake I got the dusting and vacuuming done and cleaned 2/3 of the bathroom (other 1/3 the other night).

    Ron is my husband . You will find him on here . Just look for eldergarth. M. E. stands for myalgic encephalomyelitis. Have you ever heard of chronic fatigue ?
