I had trouble sleeping

June 30, 2003


I had trouble sleeping again; slept 1:30 to 6:00. I went to bed at 10:30, had an idea and got up. Went to bed again at 11:00, had an idea and got up. Finally I just wrote down my thoughts and the references I had chased down, sent it to myself as an email, and tried as hard as I could to unwind and relax.

Finally, after reading other blogs, I got to bed around 1:00 and fell asleep half an hour later. I had been tired earlier, I guess I got my second wind or something.

We had a busy day today: walked through the new house, closed, went over the house to start making more detailed "to do" lists, had lunch, came back to the house, went home, called my folks, went shopping for plaster repair tools and paint chips to match colors with, and now here we are. J is heading to the gym. I should go to the gym, but I am tired and a little clumsy. I should also fill out the hand-written application for a full time job at a nearby CC. I hate filling in things by hand, but I do not have Acrobat so I can not fill it in online and I do not feel like digging out the typewriter and hoping that I will not need to use the letter z (which is broken).

And so to do something useful, even if just walk the dawg.
