I haven't slept more than about 2 hours a night in the past week. The husband is wearing his nasal strips (FYI - the last missing one was found on his boxers in the morning, which were laying on the floor, lol) but is still snoring. I'm thinking it might have something to do with spring/allergy season making it's appearance but I can't be sure.
At my doctor's appointment yesterday she found that my blood pressure was up, and noticed swelling in my feet and hands - which has been happening the past week or two - and sent me for all sorts of fun tests. I have to go back on Thursday for more tests, and she wasn't impressed to find out about how many headaches I've been having. Then she gave me the lecture about going home and resting everyday, that I need to be putting my feet up and all that junk.
On a similar note, everyone else in my life keeps telling me that I'm not resting enough too. And I do realize that I have someone else to think about besides myself, but do you know how hard it is for me to relax? Sitting around has never been one of my strong points. And even if I can force my body to lay down, my brain never shuts off, so I'm exhausted one way or another.
I am having one of those days when I alternate between bitchy and happy - sort of like split personalities. I've been entertaining ideas of punching a certain person at work's eyes out, just for kicks. I seem to have a lot of pent up anger these days.
Yeesh - that sounded a little scary, didn't it? Rest assured I just need a good night's sleep. I'm showing the not so attractive twin of my Gemini self today.
The other day when the husband and I were walking around Osborne Village (a funky little part of Winnipeg with some cool but expensive stores) we found one of the funniest t-shirts ever. It had a picture of a big hamburger on it, and there was a bubble about the hamburger's face that said "I want to be inside you" - the husband and I laughed pretty hard at that.
That's it...I need a nap.
