Sleep…why have you turned on me?

I’ve decided while I was going through my old blog entries that I’m not going to list the news tidbits as I have been doing for a couple of years. I hope that’s okay with you all.

I will, however, remark on news items that I actually want to comment on. Such as:

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada is recommending that the government offer tax breaks for gym memberships and exercise equipment, and no GST on healthy food purchases. I think this is an outstanding idea but I don’t hold out hope.

Sleep has been my friend and my enemy this weekend. My friend when it comes, and my enemy when it leaves. This morning I woke up at around 6:30ish. It was some truck going past the building, I’m sure. That’s not unusual but normally I can get back to sleep. After about 5 minutes awake my mind started buzzing with troublesome thoughts and I knew I wasn’t going to get back to sleep just by willing it. That’s 3 nights in a row and I’m pretty out of it at work. I keep doublechecking my work. I got up to find something that I could watch – X2 seemed to work ok for me Sunday morning. I’m glad I taped all those episodes of classic Trek while I was working at home because it wasn’t long after I plugged in Star Trek Memories with Leonard Nimoy that I at least got a little more shuteye. When I woke up it was already into the episode with the salt-eating shapechanger. I don’t know if it’s the drone of the VCR or that Spock’s shenanigans occupy my higher brain functions, but I’m thankful. THANKFUL!
