Today has been less of a day and more of an ordeal. Just getting through the heat.
I can’t brain.
Decisions all went out the window. Or would have if I’d opened them.
All the toss-ups in my life feel life and death.
Like what I was going to have for dinner. (I managed a microwaved TV dinner.)
Cookies or crackers?
Water or … water? (There’s nothing else to drink except tea and coffee. And I don’t do cold tea and coffee. Bleh.)
Half my problem all day has been lack of sleep. I turned out my light last night after 2am and tossed and turned for about an hour. Woke up at 5:55 and thought, I can go back to sleep or I can go out for a walk with Alex. Because we both need the exercise, we went for a walk. I put in 5K steps before 7am. On three hours of sleep.
My bedroom, where I work, was 90 F all day.
I still can’t brain.
P.S. Hope everyone south of the border had a happy 4th of July!

It seems to be hot all over, Linda. Trying to work in the heat is the pits and I can understand why you can’t brain. I’d be in the same boat. I don’t know how you went for a walk on three hours of sleep, but I hope you get some nap time in today. Sleep is good!

I hope by now you’ve had some shut eye. Heat is horrid to sleep with. That’s without life or death hanging over us everyday. Hugs, my friend.

The heat does make it hard to sleep, even if you can get your room cool. Being in the heat during the day seems to have some long lasting effect. I hope things cool down for you. We are also looking at 90-plus and humidity is a “yuck.”

Heat, lack of sleep and over active brain total nightmare. Sending calming vibes 💜.

I hope your sleep works itself out soon, Linda. I’ve been suffering from this for the past few weeks and it’s brutal. We need our sleep!

Too much heat, not enough sleep seems to be a common occurrence these days.
