The recent heat wave followed now by the return of night and morning fog has made sleeping
difficult. Unrelated, my sciatica seems to be back after a couple day hiatus. The change
in weather though has been the main problem, keeping Ian and me awake and making us both
very grumpy. If I weren't pregnant and unable to sleep on the couch comfortably, I would
give Ian a break and take a night on the couch. The last two nights have been really rough
on him and it doesn't seem fair that both of us should go without sleep.
The night before last when the temperature first changed Ian was restless and kept me
up for an hour. I think I could have fallen asleep in that first hour if he hadn't been tossing
and turning so much. After that I was just awake and stayed awake until 4 AM. Meanwhile in
my thrashing around (nearly falling out bed once) I accidentally hit Ian in the back and
he stomped off to the closet to try to sleep on the floor. Why he didn't chose the couch,
I have no idea! Of course the closet didn't work and he came to bed again at 3. As I mentioned,
I finally fell asleep briefly at 4 only to be awoken by Ian's snorning (normally if I am
asleep his snorning doesn't wake me). At last I fell again at 5 AM, only to have to get up
at 6:45 to get to work by 7:30 AM.
Last night we were both basket cases after Sean went to bed (at 9:30, late for him). We
went to bed an hour early but again were getting on each other's nerves. Ian left the bed
twice to sleep upstairs. At 3 AM a pair of noisy neighbors woke me up (through my ear plugs)
because I could hear every word of their conversation through my ear plugs. I took the opportunity
to get Ian back into bed. We closed the bedroom window to drown out as much of their noise
as we could and managed to sleep until the alarm went off this morning.
While I think I slept better last night, I'm not so sure about Ian. I hope tonight will
be better for both of us.
Learning About Live Journal:
I have many BookCrossing friends who are active posters on LiveJournal and one
of them asked
me if it would be possible to get my blog onto LiveJournal. For LiveJournal it ended up being
a three step process. First of all I had to start an RSS feed. Then my friend had to upgrade
to a sponsored account which a friend helped him with. Finally I had to create my own Live
Journal account so I could monitor how well the feed was working.
Since I seem to have now become an active LiveJournal user, I decided to bite the bullet
and learn how LiveJournal uses CSS to manage look and feel. So if you're reading this post
via LiveJournal, stop on by my little spot (user name PussReboots) and see what I've done.
Basically I've made my journal look at lot more like my actual home
page here at pair networks.
