The pain and my head just won’t let me sleep.  Add to this I now have a lovely head cold/allergies – can’t tell which currently, but I’m POSITIVE it ISN’T COVID-19 – which knocked me out all of yesterday.  It was impossible to wake up.  Of course this added to the not wanting to sleep part. So, I am probably going to pull a 24 hour awake time.

I feel sorry for The Husband though because the dogs are protecting .e from e dry sound, every rustle of the trees, and the occasional car that may pass by at this hour. I know he hasn’t gotten much sleep so far tonight.  He isn’t feeling well either.  His sarcoid is really bothering him. He needs rest, but I need to be awake.  Maybe things will change for the better with the time change this weekend.

I am really missing having a laptop.  Not being able to continue all the writing projects or doing any editing for the projects completed is driving me into an odd sort of ‘downer’.  It isn’t depression. There just isn’t any writing being accomplished, and that is really throwing me off. Luckily the painting and drawing are helping.

No, I am not good at drawing or painting, but I’m enjoying it and that is really what matters for my psyche. Yeah, the psyche needs an escape of some sort from all the… craziness.

Covid-19 has finally made it into my area.  The road I live on has a number of cases now.  My great-nephew, J, had to leave work yesterday and get a test. This worried all of us because of my sister’s cancer, as well as my nephew’s cancer and their depleted immune systems.  Luckily, the report was negative.  Thank You, God!
