I am so tired this morning. I had another of those restless nights, falling into a light sleep and waking, over and over and over. I finally slept from some time around 4:00 AM till almost 8:00, not enough, especially after the tossing and turning. I don't think anything was/is wrong, other than having a potentially very busy week, and wondering how I can balance it, get everything in.
I am set to power wash the ramp, steps and part of the deck today or tomorrow. Today is very windy and the high will be just 58, not a good combination when I'm going to get wet. No way can I not expect to get wet, even without the wind, but the wind factor would intensify the chill. Tomorrow is going to be 8-10 degrees higher, and that will help. I don't know about the wind tomorrow, but I must get this done one of the two days. The wood needs to dry thoroughly so I can weather-treat it and my window for that is Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I'm planning on Saturday. That has to be done while the temperatures are not too low, and those days are best.
I'm going to Albuquerque with Linda on Wednesday. We picked Wednesday because we want to make a full day of it. Tuesday and Thursday are out because I have dance in the evening both days. We are starting the waltz, and I don't want to miss the first few, critical lessons that will cover the basics. Friday was out because of my window for the deck. groooan.
I also want to drive to San Antonio (NM, not TX) which is near a wildlife reserve where I took pictures a couple years ago, and I wanted to have a photography day. Again I considered the weather for obvious reasons, and the best window is the same as for treating the deck, Fri, Sat, or Sun. Because of dance on Saturday night (yes, I'm doing 3 times a week), that day is out, leaving Friday or Sunday.
So all of this was rolling around in my head last night. I have the week pretty well planned, so I can't figure out why it was bubbling, but it was. I'm really tired, and I'm sort of glad that I can't do the power washing today. I'll clean house and rest up for the rest of the week. I also have a number of phone calls to make, both local and to shoe stores in Albuquerque. One of my errands is to buy dance shoes, and I want to be sure that I find a store as close as possible to our other shopping to make it easier and more efficient.
I'm enjoying the facebook experience so far. I received an invitation to be "friends" from a woman whose name I didn't recognize. (For those of you who aren't familiar, being"friends" opens my page to her and hers to me; unless we both agree, the pages are closed to outsiders.) She was friends with two of my blog buddies, so I figured it was someone whose blog I visit but does not use her name on her blog. So I accepted. However, nothing was familiar about her. I sent her a message asking how I know her, and she did not reply. She had a long list of friends, yet she does not communicate with them. She plays with a virtual pet and plays a word game. All the time. She has nearly 100 "friends" and I assume she is simply collecting virtual friends. Strange.
So I asked one of my blog buddies who she is, and she didn't know! She thinks she might have accepted the invite by accident by clicking on the wrong button. I cancelled my acceptance, and emailed the other blog buddy. She said about the same .... she isn't sure where/how/why she is "friends" with the woman! She is also checking to see how she got connected. I'm waiting to hear.
This morning I found one of my granddaughters on facebook. I had looked under her full name, but she told me via email that she uses just her first and middle name, and after surfing through 14 pages, I finally found her on page 15! That many people had the same or similar first and middle names, and I wasn't finished with the search list! sheesh. When I got to her page, I found that she has 212 friends! That's two-hundred-twelve!! Oh, to be 19 again! It's OK, I'll probably have trouble keeping up with my 14! LOL!
And Ruth from Canada is on facebook, so we got connected. It took a little while because there are as many people with Ruth's full name as there were of my granddaughter's. I finally figured out which one I thought was our Ruth, and meanwhile she was trying to find me. My name is unusual, so there aren't many there to confuse the issue. However, my account was new and hadn't hit the list yet. There was another woman with the same name with a middle name thrown in, and Ruth sent her a message thinking it was me! We finally got it together!
OK, I gotta move on to the next level. OK, OK, I'm going to read a few blogs while I finish my cuppa tea, THEN I'll get busy. Honest. Really!
Have a good day, y'all!! Don't forget to watch the video in the earlier post. It is too good to miss!!
