I am sitting here at the computer after having a really rough night. I fall asleep and wake right up again in about 20 minutes. Kept doing this all night. So I finally gave in and took two Vicodin. It helps with all the aches and pains, but they give me a burst of energy like you would think the demons were after me. So now I am no long hurting, (great) but wide awake and looking for housework to do. Not hard to find. In a little while I will start to make the mac and cheese for tonight.

I still have my cold. I never realized how much phlegm the human body could produce. At least it is still clear. I have been keeping a close eye on that. I have also been contemplating my next medical problem to address. I have these little nodules on the knuckle joints of my fingers. Some have grown quite large and are becoming painful. Time to get them removed. They are a form of arthritis from the psoriasis. Simple to remove. Shoot the finger up with lidocaine, open the finger and remove them. Have had it done before. Most of them are on my right hand. So I will be typing with just one hand. That should prove to be frustrating and interesting.

It's a bit more work Lets just say a trip to the bathroom at night usually means tripping about 10 times (over stuff on the floor!)

We used to go Lego skiing when the kids were little in the middle of the night. Not a fun experience. Watch for those little toys on a bare floor!

DH has a bad cold, so I'm going to make a pot of chicken noodle soup with some of the leftover roast chicken from last night's dinner. Then I'm going grocery shopping, and then I want to organize my notes from Master Gardener class and start on the garden design project.

Shoot. Now I have a purring kitty on my lap and I don't want to get up!

The lego has gotten me a few times but the worst are the toy tanks! Walk into or step on one of those and it sounds like Guy Fawkes Not a good thing to think your under fire while half asleep and need to pee!
