No, I haven't...

I haven't nearly had enough sleep, because Tyke woke me up barking twice for no reason that I could figure out. I had to get him quiet immediately and spent some time entertaining him, which woke me up almost completely, but I wasn't ready to be awake. I did get up eventually, instead of lying there in the dark, and went on the bathroom scale where I saw that I had lost another kilo. 

That almost got me over my grouchiness and I figured a cup of coffee would do the rest. I'm attempting now to be in a good mood, but I'm not quite there yet. It's going to take at least another cup of coffee and maybe a nap on the sofa. People shouldn't get up at ungodly hours and have to start the day. Nothing good will come of it. I think I need a can of Red Bull. 

I feel like doing nothing but complain about the early hour of the day and I wonder how people do it every day who have to go to a job. Do they get up cheerfully and shower and get dressed and get out of the house on time? How do they do that? They must need their requisite cups of coffee to get them kick started. They have to decide what to wear and put on their clothes in the right order, all the while under pressure to be somewhere on time. 

I also have to complain about my knee. It is bothering me and I'm not a happy camper. It is better if I walk around on it, but as soon as I come to rest, it starts to hurt, no matter what position I have it in. It's very wearisome and I'd like to be rid of my knee and have another one. A brand new twenty year old knee, even if it doesn't match the rest of me. I could be like the bionic woman and have new parts. 

I'm drinking my third cup of coffee and am starting to feel some semblance of normality. I've stopped yawning, which is good, because my jaw threatened to get stuck. Leave it to coffee to help me start to feel better. I'm drinking it with artificial creamer because the milk is all gone. It's not all that horrible and it's better than drinking it black. I used to drink my coffee black when I was very stoic. I don't remember when I started taking milk in it again, but couldn't do without it now. There is a limit to how much I want to deprive myself. I do deprive myself of a lot of things already. I've had a hunkering for a meatball for a week, for instance, but I won't eat it. 

I suppose I have to decide what I'm going to do now. I think I will get dressed and watch the repeats of the news and see if I'm truly awake. If not, I'll go lie down on the sofa. The Exfactor is supposed to come over this morning to do the groceries and I'll have to get a shopping list ready. I do feel tired still and really not ready to start the day. I want to rest my knee too. It's protesting wildly. 

Have a good morning!

I can relate to painful limbs and lack of sleep.
Hope you are feeling better.
Sunny day here even though it is cold.

Nuts in May

Congratulations on your weight loss.

Sorry about the knee.

You must have been very stoic at one time if you did without milk in your coffee lol

Jenner said...

You've inspired me to make a pot of coffee. With milk in it, of course. I'm not at all stoic.

Bev, I must have had an iron stomach to have dome with black coffee. I'm sure I could do no such thing now. I'd get heartburn immediately.


Nora said...

Jnner, I'm glad to hear that you're not very stoic either. There's a time and place for that, I'm sure. It probably comes in handy in times of extreme emergencies. In cases of war or something like that, famine maybe :o)

I had a flashback dream last night where I was going back many years in time to work in an office cubicle. it was frightening. From the crack of dawn to the edge of night. Really vivid. I can never analyse my own dreams but I do others all the time.
I tried black coffee too but I have to have a splash of cream in it. Milk doesn't quite cut it. I am sucking on one right now. Dark French Roast. Is there anything better on the planet?
I hope your knee is getting adjusted to the day :D
