Sleepless in Seattle Sucks Sh*t

Good Morning, World!!! It is just after two in the morning, Seattle time and I cannot sleep worth shit. My insomnia is kicking in big time at the moment and it sucks shit. I have to get up in two hours and fifty-three minutes for work.

Since, I cannot sleep and have to be up in less than three hours for work I have decided to not turn on my happy light for depression or my lights in my apartment in hopes to keep my brain as much at rest as possible. Since I am wanting my apartment dark right now, I decided to do a handful of mindfulness meditations on the Calm App and it helped me. Now, as I am writing this blog post, I am listening to a podcast about philosophy. Specifically, I am listening to the podcast; Philosophize This I highly recommend. In fact, the podcaster who does this podcast, Stephen West, lives in the Seattle area which is extremely cool.

As I listen to Philosophize This, I have been cuddling with my cat, Billie. Billie is happy that I am awake to pay attention to him. I am beyond grateful to have Billie by my side and for his unconditional love.

Well, I do not have much more to say in the podcast. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Peace Out, World!!!

Home Sick in Bed w/my Cat, Billie By My Side

Good Morning and Happy Friday, World!!! Sadly, I am not feeling well and need to call out sick. I text the two supervisors I have numbers to as well as the program coordinator. I then emailed the program coordinator and the two supervisors had numbers as well as the one I did not have a number to. I also called my direct supervisor and left her voicemail. I just to make sure I get my ass covered. I feel really bad for doing this to the team that I enjoy working on and has been quite supportive of me since day one. I have some awesome colleagues on the PACT. I love working with my team and they are all awesome.

The only think I can see me doing today by being productive is through art is coloring. I plan on doing some but not sure when it will look like once finished. I plan sleeping as well. In facet I am going to back to back to sleep

I hope everyone has a good weekend a head. Peace out, World!!!

Everyday Inspiration, Day 4; A Story in a Single Image

Good Morning, World!!! Topic is a story in a single image. Sadly, the four images WordPress gave us to be “inspired” by didn’t really inspire me. So, I chose my teddy bear to be inspired by. I have had this teddy bear since the day I was born and I am forty-three years old. I still sleep with Teddy as I call him. He is a priceless heirloom to me and I love him dearly. He has had to be sewed up on several occasions but what do you expect for a teddy bear being forty-three years old.

Another Night Sleepless In Seattle

Good Morning, World from Seattle. It is just barely after three o’clock in the morning here in Seattle. I am extremely tired and it is the second night in a row where I haven’t slept very well. Tonight, I kept busy in hopes to get tired enough to go to sleep. Of course cuddling with my cat, Billie was a great help with my anxiety about not being able to sleep.

So, I started out with cross stitching. I am doing a stamped crossing stitching so I can learn and hopefully move on to counted cross stitching. I am crossing stitching a cat. I love cats. It’s a complicated stamped cross stitch but I’m okay with that. I am looking forward to the challenge of this stamped cross stitching cat. It is going to be beautiful when it is done. The next thing I did was painting by number. I am doing a scenery of a mountain and a lake. It’s coming right a long. The painting is nice and relaxing. I then colored a mandala. Mandala’s are a way to bring calm and peace to me. After doing my arts and crafts stuff, I started reading a holiday book. Actually it is a Christmas book. The book is called ” The Paper Bag Christmas” by Kevin Alan Milne. So far the book is good. After reading I did about a chapter of math in “Basic Math and Pre Algebra for Dummies.” Doing all this has helped me become hopefully tired enough to get some sleep.

I do not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading blog. Good Night, Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Very Little Sleep Last Night

Good Morning, World!!! I didn’t get much sleep last night and I am not sure why. In fact it is almost eight o’clock in the morning in Seattle and plan on going back to bed. I did plan on what I am going to do today besides a work meeting online this evening.

I am going to be waiting on some packages from Amazon. I am also planing on reading a holiday book as well as doing a holiday jigsaw puzzle as I listen to be listening to music. I am also am going to to be doing Math for Dummies. I know doing Math for Dummies sounds lame but I would like to learn more about math and be efficient in my math skills. Good back to the Amazon order I am accepting some crafting and artsy stuff to do to keep myself busy during the winter months

I think I am going back to sleep for a few more hours. I have a wonderful work week everyone.

Lazy Type of Day

Good Afternoon, World!!! It has been a lazy day. I started off the day reading the first two chapters of a holiday book when I woke up this morning with my cat Billie on my lap as I was sipping some hot teat. I started getting a little sleeping from reading even though the book appears to be so far so good in the first two chapter.

On that note I really did not want to go back to sleep and take a nap since I had already just woken up from a good night sleep. I decided to buy some stuff off of Amazon. Mostly, I purchased artsy and crafty and stuff with one exception of more tarot cards and a beginners guide to the beginners guide to tarot cards and guides. I have course will spend the rest of the day with my cat, Billie. Not sure if I will continue to read or end up watching movies.

As far as tomorrow goes, I plan on volunteering at PAWS Cat City. Of course when I get home, I will spend time with Billie. After that I will do some much need house hold chores of cleaning my apartment. So, tomorrow is going to be my chore day.

I do not have much more to say for this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Best Part of Waking Up is Billie in My Lap as I Read

Good Morning and Happy Saturday, World!!! I slept in this morning which was awesome since I woke up in the middle of the night. It took me about two hours to get back to sleep but on the good note I was able to get back to sleep as well as sleep in.

In fact the best part of this morning was not the sleeping in part part; it was the Billie cuddling up in my lap as I finally chose a holiday book to read. In fact it is a Christmas book I am going to start reading after I am done posting this particular blog post. The book I will be reading is ” Sleigh Bells Riding” by RaeAnne Thayne. I’m not exactly sure what the book is about except it is set during Christmas time. It is going to be one of those days I stay in and read as well as hang out with my wonderful cat, Billie.

The weather is the typical Seattle weather. The ground is wet gut at least it is not raining. Do it’s a damp cold day in Seattle. I might even work on my jigsaw puzzle to today which is in the holiday spirit.

i co not have much more to say in this particular blog post. I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Happy Holidays and Peace Out, World!!!

Sleepless in Seattle & Cat Tarot Card

Good very early in the morning, World!!! it is 2;07 in the blasted in freaking in the morning here is Seattle. So, I am trying to get back into the tarot card thing again. One is about cats and a journal that isn’t associated with the Tarot deck but will go well together. I also have another Tarot deck that appear to be for advanced. I did order to advanced journals for this particular deck which is called, “Radiant Wise Spirit” which I have two tarot journals for. I am going to hope this will help with my recovery process. On a side not have some basic tarot journals so when I get a hang of it i have it I have extra.

In fact I am going to order more tarot card and journal that possibly go with the set. I just want the tarot stuff to help with my recovery and will be a great way to start and end the day with. I will like to get some guidebooks regarding tarot cards. Anything to help my recovery and my future.

Who knew a sleepless night in Seattle will help continuing with my recovery process. I will also look into some self help workbook. Now on to do shopping on Amazon. I hope to get some sort of sleep. Goodnight and Peace Out, World!!!

Update of Life

Good Middle of the Night from Seattle. I just work up with only three hours of sleep and hope I can get back to sleep since I have an online interview at two in the afternoon via Microsoft Teams. I haven’t been getting much sleep due not having any money to pay rent or other bills. Good need news that the rent stuff with the landlord got situated as it wa on their end. Bad news I still have other bills to pay which are pretty high. I’m looking at the bright side that the landlord realized it was their mistake and I would not get a “lack of payment notice.”

On other good news I accepted a job yesterday (Tuesday) evening for a part time job that is twelve hours a week. Not as many hours as I would like but it’s a job. I will still be applying to jobs and attending interviews as well as continue to apply for unemployment who is still dragging their feet. I’m hoping that get unemployment since I will only be working twelve hours a week. If don’t then I don’t but it i s worth a try.

I hate to ask this again especially since most of you have money issues yourselves but am hoping some of you can donate to my paypal account at @GertiesJourney1979; Seattle. Wa. (Not sure if the @ Seattle is suppose to be there or not. In any case I will be happy even if one per donate money to my paypay account.

Before I end this post, my cat, Billie has been a great comfort to me as he always is. I love my cat so much. I am thrilled he chose me to be his human and apart of his family. I truly believe that animals are part of the family.

I don’t have much more to say as I want to try to get back to sleep so I can be well rested for my interview. Have good night slep. Peace out World!!!

Productivity While Sleepless in Seattle

Happy Middle of the Night From Seattle. I am dealing with some depression that is causing the insomnia. I have a lot on my mind including not having a job which means no money. I’m worried about paying rent. I am hoping that you can my reading can click on the advertisements so I can get money to pay rent. Sorry to start this pvarticular blog post for asking for money by clicking on the advertisements. It might be only a few cents but it helps. Again thank you for putting up with me asking for money the first paragraph.

Now on to what I plan to discuss; my productivity since I can’t sleep, Let start with me educating myself with books for Dummies. Right now I am reading U.S History for Dummie. I only read tthe first chapter and I will do the quiz online.

I’ve also been doing some arts as well as crafts. I’ve done some coloring, paint by color, latch hoot and cross stitch. Being creative help with the depression and so does educating myself with the Dummies Education series.

Of course I can”t forget Billie had been a great help with my depression. He is loving and tuned into my down time like when I am down in the dumps.

I don’t have much more to say in this blog post. I do want to thank you for reading for my blog. It is greatly appreciated from my end of things. Thanks again for reading my blog. Peace Out, World
