After three days of feeling like death warmed up I’m lying in bed trying to sleep and can’t, so I get up to get the red kidney beans soaking so we can have nachos for dinner tonight. This will be the one night that JJ doesn’t wake me up with his coughing, or he will as soon as I can finally get to sleep.
Anyway, it’s just after midnight, the beans are soaking, I’ll go and read yet a bit more of The Bonesetter’s Daughter before I try for the third time to get some sleep. How I wish I’d had the energy to put clean sheets on my bed today as I’m sure that would have made a huge difference, but it took me two days to put clean sheets on JJ’s bed – he’s had to make do.
When I finally do get to sleep tonight I hope my dreams aren’t as vivid and totally weird as they have been the last two nights.
