I had a long day after a short night so please forgive me for posting two days in one post…
Day 42 –
After a fun night with my daughter and boyfriend, I realized why I don’t have more late nights/early mornings like that anymore. I just can’t handle the lack of sleep like I used to. So the happy moment was when I had a chance to relax and catch a nap. As a child we hate nap time, but as adults we learn to really love those moments … or at least I do. Maybe it is just the fatigue that comes with fibromyalgia? Regardless waking from a nap refreshed just feels good, like a nice big hug.
Day 43 –
Today I took advantage of the quiet time while my boyfriend was at work and did something I love to do – read. I have to admit this is a different form of reading. It is an audio book for The Fireman by Joe Hill. I grew up reading Stephen King and when I read Heart Shaped Box by his son Joe I was hooked on his writing style. He can really rope you into a story and keep you turning the pages. I happen to find this audio book by accident when I was at my local library looking for a movie on DVD to check out. The case of CDs happened to catch my eye and I had to “read” it. I find I can go through the “junk mail” I get from all the businesses in my inbox while I listen. I used to “read” a lot of books on CD when I was working out-of-town and had a 20 minute drive to work. Reading opens up so many different worlds! Now I need to go and listen to a bit more… only 2 of the 18 CDs left to listen to.
