Vegetative State

No sewing lately.  All I’ve done is embroidered 1 book bag.  I’ve created a lot of designs but my emotions have prevented me from accomplishing much at all lately.  Again, life has kept me too busy and when I catch up I’m too tired to sew.  Lately I’ve been buying and upgrading laptops.  My brand new, still-under-warranty laptop died one night…just like that!!! One minute I was typing a reply on a sewing forum, the next minute the screen was black, the buttons were no longer lit up…nothing at all.  And no matter what trick I tried it would never restart.  All my information was still on the hard drive but it was returned to the vendor……which left me without a personal laptop…again.  Wah!  So I wrapped it up and delivered it to FedEx.  Bad day at Black Rock!  I loved that computer!  So, I bought another, different one from somebody I’d bought from before and hope this is the ONE!  It’s due to arrive next week.  In the meantime, I bought 2 used laptops from Ebay–one for $89 and one for $139.  I’ve upgraded the HDD on the first one and maxed out the RAM.  Currently updating to Windows 8.1 then to Windows 10 and it’ll be ready to loan/donate to anyone who needs it.  The other cheap one will be here next week and should need less upgrading.  That’ll give us 2- 14″ laptops for whoever needs them.  Can’t beat that!

I’ve had some health related issues and am transitioning off the sleeping pills lately which means sleep is at a premium and I go to bed when I fall down because I don’t sleep naturally anymore.  I’ve never slept well and 35 years of shift work have done their number on me.  Now that R and I are both retired I’ve decided to try to just stop trying to normalize with the pills and see if my body can learn to sleep again without them.  It’s a painful process though because I lose a lot of sleep every time I try this.  I’m committed to doing it this time.  I am.  I am!  And my depression has had me in its clutches, too, so motivation has also been at a premium.  I’ll figure it out.  It just wears me out emotionally and with little to no sleep, it makes me an unhappy, grouchy woman.  Who would have known?  LOL
