I still haven't quite "caught up" with my loss of sleep.... as if you really could. I am feeling much better, though. Thanks for all your kind comments on the subject.
My mother was a poor sleeper. She attributed it to the cycle of the moon. She swore that if the moon were full she wouldn't sleep a wink. Of course she took a nap daily and woe be unto the person to interrupt that nap. In her later years she developed restless leg syndrome; however she named her condition the "heebie jeebies". I don't look at the moon lest I jinx myself into anticipating a sleepless night. I have always preferred to think that I am more like my dad than my mom. I can see parts of his likeness in the mirror, but I also see Mother. Can't be helped, I suppose; we are what we are.
I ask love of my life to tell me what actor would portray me in a movie about me. He is still pondering, trying to come up with someone. So far we have agreed it would be Kathy Bates. I think he is afraid that it offends me. Maybe if I were younger, I suppose; maybe. I find as I age I care less about how I look than how I feel. Personally I think she is a wonderful actress and we do share a same body type--love of my life says I am much smaller. I guess that is why he is the love of my life...... When asked the same question about himself, he said Tom Cruise. I suppose it was rude of me to laugh so hard; but all I could think of was Fred Flintstone. I chose not to share that with him and told him I thought he was more like George Clooney. Ahhh, the eyes of love!
I am still not thinking too clearly, still longing for more sleep. All my thoughts are running into each other inside my head making it almost impossible to narrow them down to an intelligent post. It is rainy and cold, so I am going to have a cup of tea and watch Lifetime, and if I am lucky enough to have silence from the phone and buzzer I may even catch a little nap.........
