I need to go make up my bed again. I've been sleeping on the couch for about a year, since my oldest dog could no longer be helped up the stairs to the bedroom anymore. I'm sure sleeping in a bed will help, but I wasn't waking up at 2:00 a few weeks ago, so who knows.

Thanks for the tea recipe, Snips. I just happen to have a romaine heart in the fridge, too. Maybe I'll drop the leaves in the food processor and mince them up so I can squeeze them into a refillable K-cup
you are missing tursa, is what that is, pac. you are mourning the loss of your beautiful dog, your faithful longtime friend and companion. try the teas and things, in any event.... valerian, is effective as a natural sedative. you might find it wherever vitamins and supplements are sold, melatonin is also good for sleeplessness in some cases. rest easy, pac....

When you get your new one, keep that one for a second freezer. It seems to be doing the job.

Stress? That's a possibility.
The thought of knowing what was coming and being close now to what has transpired is a possibility.
Thanks, Vit, Dawg. You guys know everything

It sure does.

I need that sucker out of my kitchen. I have a chest freezer in the basement. I also have a second fridge in the kitchen that also has to go. If I do it soon enough, Hydro Quebec will give me $30 each to take them away.

Happy friday to all! I am so happy that this was a short week at work. Ordered a delivered pizza for supper, not so good. It was easy to stop at 1 slice. Relaxing awhile before bedtime.

Treat yourself to a lunch date with a friend with your bounty.

Yes, I would certainly try sleeping in your bed again Pac, although that still doesnt explain waking at the same time every night lately!

Could it maybe be that you are missing Tursa, I dont know about the certain time, but it could well be on your mind

I do hope you are doing OK xx
