In which I couldn’t sleep at all last night

March 25, 2012

The rain is coming down, making a lovely pattering sound on the leaves of the liquid amber tree just outside my window. It’s a good day to curl up and watch Sunset Blvd., if you have a copy.

I owe a lot of phone calls and emails. I just can’t bring myself to do anything about it. I don’t want to answer questions. I don’t want to hear all about my mother’s widows’ grief group, or her widows’ lunch group. She has really embraced her status as widow. She likes to have an identity.

I’m tired today because I didn’t sleep at all last night. I could sleep now, naturally, but that’ll just lead to no sleep again tonight. And Monday, bright and early, I going to to LA for some meeting with an interventional radiologist. And I have no idea why. I forgot to ask.



Amen, you know?



  1. love me some norma, ” I “am” big. It’s the “pictures” that got small.”
    sending some sunshine your way.

    • She is brilliant.

  2. Oh, that plate! I love that plate! I do not like the not sleeping. Having a bit of trouble with that myself. Hope you sleep well tonight.

    • Isn’t it great? I love it.

      And yes, here’s to sleep.

  3. How awesome us that plate!!!! Is it in your possession? This LA appt sounds encouraging. I wish I was in town to take you.

    • It is in my possession, yes. A proud family

      I don’t really know what to expect tomorrow. I guess we shall see!

  4. Happy thoughts for you tomorrow for sure! Miss you! If you are up for it BG has his comedy jam tomorrow evening, very low key if you just want to get out? If you aren’t up for it I totally understand, I will send your fabulous regards:)

    • Thanks, darling — I’m way too woozy, but I appreciate the thought.

  5. Here is to sleep. Thinking of you tonight and thoughts are with you tomorrow as well.

    • Thanks, miss. It went fine today — I just have decisions to make.

  6. That plate is AWESOME … It just needs a few twisters around the border. I hope you got some much needed zzzz last night and that today’s appointment is encouraging … Radiation worked well for you in the past and – while no picnic – the side effects seem better than chemo maybe? I just look forward to laying eyes on you later this week. XO
