The world was moving and she was right there with it

August 2, 2008

I just woke up from the second night of sleep I’ve had in my bed in 11 days. It was nice. I really needed it. I don’t think I realized how much my erratic sleep schedule was messing with my head. I feel better now. I’m very, very hungry though. Who wants to bring me lunch?

Yesteray after I got home from my nap I slept for about 5.5 hours. I had a lot of dreams but the one that stood out the most was when I had to have surgery on my ankle. The first day they cut my foot off and I had to go around on crutches. Then the next day they reattached my foot and I had this perfect line around my ankle where they reattached it. This reminds me of my childhood when my dear older brother used to tell me that they cut my head off and sewed it back on. I never could quite figure out how they got my head under the sewing machine, but when you’re 4 you can’t expect to understand everything. I also dreamed I had surgery on my hand and in my dream I couldn’t grab anything cause it hurt too much. So when my phone started ringing to wake me up I was scared to grab it and answer it cause I thought it would hurt.

Yesterday I did the same thing I’ve done every afternoon I’ve been home all week – nothing. I’ve spent far too much time in my room. I need to get out of here today. Problem is, everywhere I go costs money in gas and there aren’t that many places to go that aren’t miserable in this heat.

Last night I worked at the Rick Springfield concert. I didn’t have any tables to serve such I just helped everyone else out with the concession stand and in the bars. I was really tired and the heat was sucking my life out, so I can’t say it was the best night of my life. It was funny cause everyone was waiting for him to play “Jessie’s Girl” all night and it seemed like every song started out sounding like it was going to be that one. Some of my coworkers were thinking he was doing that to tease people, but my real guess is that he only knows about 4 licks and uses them over and over. I’m back there tonight but I think we have a couple tables to serve so hopefully the night will be a little better. I have to go buy some new shorts to wear because I seem to have lost weight and my shorts are making me look like a plumber now.

Matt and Molly left yesterday to go to Rome to start a 7 day cruise on Sunday. It’s going to be an empty, quiet house for the next long while.

I’m still copying my old blog over and got to this day two years ago this morning. It’s kind of fun to look back and see what was going on. I do kind of wish I wasn’t so vague about certain things so I could have a more accurate record. Maybe I can figure something out.
