A trip to CostCo was badly needed. Brian was going to go yesterday and I mentioned that maybe I could go with him. Just to see how it went.
We went later in the day and were lucky to find a spot close to a cart area and in the shade. We walked slowly to the front of the warehouse, since my legs are pretty stiff. Did the shopping, I held on to the cart.
Finished with our shopping, got the car loaded up and headed home, stopping at Jack in the Box for a cheap dinner. Six tacos and one child's cheeseburger for under seven dollars. Dinner eaten, car unloaded, groceries put away, we watched a little television.
I medicated Neesy, we watched some Big Bang Theory on TBS and both fell asleep. Woke up around 9:30 and got DaNiece's fluids ready, Brian held her and I gave them to her. A cat had puked in the hallway, I cleaned most of it up and Brian did the final cleanup. He gathered up his stuff, shut off the television and we went to bed.
Sleep came quickly and left just as quickly. You know the articulated dolls, like Barbies? How you can make them sit? Well, that area in the front, where the legs bend, on me, last night in bed, started to get pretty painful. I'm laying there, wondering . I got up, went into the kitchen, took a couple of Advil and sat down on the sofa (hello, old friend). It was 11:30. Marty Mockingbird had started his nightly caterwauling.
A friend had suggested earplugs over on Facebook and Brian had brought in a pair. I put them in and it was heaven. I heard no bird singing. Since I couldn't get comfortable in bed and was worried that my tossing and turning might bother Brian, I stayed in the sofa. I ended up taking a melatonin and didn't fall asleep until after 1:30.
I'd really like a good night's sleep. A nice, long, restful sleep.
I think my legs hurt because of all of the walking I'd done earlier. I need to be more active, but it's so hard when I'm so tired....
