The Art of getting to sleep

The hummers have been very active this week. In fact the babies are here the are so tiny. This picture has caught the red food through the sun and gives a ruby glow to Ms. Hummer. She is my chatty one. She fusses the whole time she is near the feeders. I spend hour out by them just watching.

The art of going to sleep! It used to be so easy, jump in bed snuggle in pull covers up close eyes, sleep. Now I am worn out before I ever finish. I can only lay on back or right side. When I get comfy, I then realize I cannot pull blanket up cause left arm does not bend. So I struggle and finally get things right. Oops did I say I can't turn TV off either?????? but I need the light to get ready!! I know sleep with my own blanket with my head at the foot of the bed, easier to get up just gotta swing legs out. I think this is why I got a sleeping pill, so finally I just pass out and wake up in the middle of the night cold and TV still on.

The only positive thing is I can laugh at me, it is funny.

Have a great Saturday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM

Hey, Mari, do you happen to have a timer in the menu/setup of the bedroom tv? Susie sets the timer on the one in her old bedroom at Ma and Pop's. That way, if she falls asleep while her niece and nephew are watching a movie with her, she knows the tv will shut itself off at a certain time. Hope you get a routine figured out so you "can get your nest made" without too much trouble :)

P.S. Happy Birthday, Mari's Mom!
