Middle of the Night Rambling

Good Morning, World!!! It’s 2:01 in morning in my corner of the world which is Seattle, Washington. I am sadly not able to sleep and hope I can get some form of rest or preferably sleep. I wanting sleep so I am not a cranky bucket at work. Being a cranky bucket is not fun especially when you have to work. I hope I can get some sleep so I can be the best person I can be when I am at work.

Anyway I have been cuddling with my cat, Billie Dean which helps with relaxing enough to at least help with falling asleep. While cuddling with Billie, my cat, I have been listening to a podcast on philosophy. Specifically, I am listening to Philosophize This. Philosophize This is a great podcast and trying to get to the most recent podcast but I have a long way to go. I am okay with that as it will help have some structure in my life that is enjoyable for me especially since I am learning something everyday from Philosophize This. So, my cat and the podcast will be helping me get some rest tonight.

I don’t have any more to talk about this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. If you wasn’t for you reader I wouldn’t be writer my blog. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!!

A Sleepless in Seattle Type of Night

Good Morning, World!!! I am having a bad spell of insomnia. I think part of it is because I am in pain due to having kidney stones. Kidney stones is not something I would call as fun or enjoyable.

Since I am not able to sleep, I decided to do something that I find fun and enjoyable. That is listening to a podcast with my cat, Billie Dean, laying next to me in my bed. I am listening to a podcast about philosophy. Specifically, I am listening to Philosophize This. I really like this podcast and am almost caught up to the most recent one of it.

I do not have much more to say as I want to get back to listening to Philosophize This as I lay next to my cat, Billie as he purrs. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you my reader, I would not be writing my blog. Again, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. I hope everyone has a great rest of your weekend. Peace Out, World!!!

Too Much to Digest from Conference that I Can’t Sleep

It is five thirty in the morning on a Saturday morning. This years conference was overall good with some glitches. The glitches ended up getting fixed. I really enjoyed the conference for the moment a part. I enjoyed the workshops I attended and learned what I needed to learn as well as learn on how I can become a better peer. I a guess I am just venting with how tough the conference was this year.. Thank you all for attending the Peer Pathways conference. as I have insomnia from it due to the amount I have a learned.

Lunch Time Ramblings

Good Afternoon, World!!! It is currently my lunch time. I’m not feel so good. I think part of the reason why I am not feeling all that well is because, I didn’t sleep very well due to insomnia. I guess, one of the positive things about working from home is being able to take a nap when everything you have to do is all caught up.

Before taking a nap, I need to eat. I need to eat something so I can be less cranky for my next appointment with a client at 2:00pm. Although it is challenging to be cranky with my next client I want to make sure I eat so I am not cranky.

In fact I am waiting for my food right now. I am getting some Taco Bell. I am getting two burrito supremes with extra sour cream and extra cheese. I know what I am getting isn’t the healthiest of foods but at least I am eatting.

The best part of today is that I don’t have a peer meeting I need to attend as it is cancelled. That means I get to make sure all my notes and other paperwork is caught up. If it is caught up I get to get off early. Getting off early when you’re working from home means closing the work computer and turning on the television or turning on a podcast. Or in todays menu of options a nap. Not sure which option I will choose but I know I will figure it out before I am off for the day.

On that note, I don’t have much more to say except that I love being able to work at home because I get to spend more time with my cat, Billie Dean. Oh how I love Billie. Now I don’t have much more to say. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is much appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it weren’t for you my reader, I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

The Start of Another Day

Good Morning, World!!! It is the start of another day for me. Or maybe I should say that in less than an hour I will be starting work at a job that I love. I love my current job so much that I am willing to work being way too tired to function or that is how it feels at the moment.

I didn’t sleep very well again last night. At least the lack of sleep wasn’t due to a neighbor pulling the building fire alarm for stupid reasons. I couldn’t sleep due to the not so lovely thing called insomnia. I am not a big fan of having insomnia.

Despite not sleeping due to insomnia, I actually fixed breakfast for myself. I made myself French toast, scrambled eggs and chocolate milk. It was a tasty breakfast. I did find out that my cat, Billie Dean, loves scrambled eggs. I had to hurry up and eat my scrambled eggs or Billie would have eaten them for me.

I now have to get ready for work by putting on a nice shirt since I work from home on Wednesdays. So, if I feel like it, I can wear pajama pants to “work” when I work from home. Most of the time I do since I wear a nice shirt. When I do work from the office I wear nice pants and not pajama pants.

I do not have much more to say in this blog post except that I am glad it is Wednesday and the week is half over. I also want to think you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. If it wasn’t for you reading my blog, I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Trying Out New Bedtime Routine

Hello, World!!! I am trying out a new bedtime routine tonight. I know from times past when I try a new bedtime routine it won’t work right away as I need to make it a routine to have it work. That means if it doesn’t work tonight, I continue to try doing it for a few weeks to see if it will work or not.

I will start not being on my computer or watching the television an before I plan to go to bed. When I do this I will spend doing a ten minute mindfulness meditation on my phone from the Calm App. After that I will snuggle into bed and start reading. Reading a book of my choosing. Specifically a book that is meant to fun such as fantasy or science fiction. I plan on doing this as to help relax me and make it easier to get to sleep.

Of course my cat Billie Dean will be next to me as part of my bedtime routine as he has been a part of it since his first night home. It is always nice to have Billie sleep with me.

So, here is having my new bedtime routine helps with my sleep as I don’t have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you do read my blog. If it wasn’t for you the reading I would not be continuing to write my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Phuck, My Neighbor

Good Morning, World!!! I am fucking livid at a particular neighbor of mine. A neighbor of mine has pulled the fire alarm three different times tonight. He pulled it because other neighbors were not wearing their mask due to Covid-19. This isn’t the first time this neighbor has done this and it is becoming a pattern. Apparently, this becoming more frequent and the police and apartment management aren’t doing shit about it.

The police say they can’t arrest this neighbor because it is only a misdemeanor and the county jail are not book misdemeanors due to Covid-19. Well the neighbor who is pulling the fire alarm are putting other people lives at stake and it seem like nobody gives a shit.

I don’t appreciate not being able to sleep because of this neighbor. I need sleep as well as my other neighbors do. Apparently the apartment management has “talked” with this neighbor but that is all or at least that is how it appears to me and other neighbors.

I don’t have much more to say as I want to try to get some sleep tonight. Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Without you reading my blog, I wouldn’t be writing my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for my reading my blog. I hope this day will become better. Peace Out, World!!!

Lack of Sleep = Self Care Time with Billie the Kat plus Mindfulness & Meditation

Good Morning, World!!! It’s before the butt crack of dawn in Seattle and I am wide awake for some reason. I suspect my cat, Billie Dean woke me before a major PTSD moment while asleep. He does this a lot and I am learning to wake myself up because of what my cat Billie does. So, I guess I am learning new skill due to my beloved cat, Billie. I love my cat so much and am grateful that he is in my life.

Now it is on to some self care time with mindfulness and meditation. First and fore most Billie is a great way to start mindfulness with after a PTSD moment. Then it is to do a ten minute app from the Calm App to help ground myself even more so I can focus on reading one of the magazines focused on mindfulness and meditation with some journaling . In fact a fellow Peer Specialist/Counseling informed me of the Calm App. I was hesitant at first and now I swear by it as it is so helpful for me. So, from the looks of it, I will be starting my day at the butt crack of dawn doing mindfulness and meditation by ways of my cat, the Calm App and some mindfulness and meditation magazines with journaling involved.

I don’t have much more to say except thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog especially at the butt crack of dawn. Or at least it is the butt crack of dawn here in Seattle. I know it is Tuesday and I hope everyone’s work week goes well. Please take a moment to do a mindfulness exercise even if it is only for thirty seconds. Peace Out, World!!!

Restarting to Read Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb

Good Morning, World!!! It is midnight in my corner of the world which is Seattle, Washington. I am at a loss of what to do as I need to keep myself occupied. I have decided to start reading the book “Ship of Magic” by Robin Hobb. Every time I pick it up start getting into it a major life event happens. I will not let another life event get in the way of reading “Ship of Magic.”

Robin Hobb is a local author the lives in the Seattle/Tacoma areas. I met her twice while she was signing books. She appears to be a very down to earth type of person who doesn’t let their celebrity get in the way. She is a very sweet person.

Anyway, I am going to end this particular blog post so I can get back to reading. I want to thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things that you read my blog. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Still No Sleep In Seattle

It is now 12:29 in the afternoon here in Seattle. I still have not been to sleep and I am cranky as fucking hell. I’ve been ready some magazines about mindfulness and meditation that seems to be helping. They seem to be helping because that have some journaling accepts to them which is pretty cool. I am also reading a magazine specifically geared to be more creative and want to be more creative.

That sad part of all this is since I am lacking sleeping my comprehension skills suck shit right now. I think I am going to call this a post and end it for now now. I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead of them. Peace Out, World!!!
