I must apologize for not posting the past couple nights. I have a habit, that seems to be completely uncontrollable. I will stay up until 2:00 AM, almost every night. Of course I still have to get up in the morning and go to work. This means that I get on average about 3 to 4 hours of sleep a night. Most people know that to maintain a healthy life, one should get 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night. Now I have tried on a number of occasions to go to bed at a reasonable hour. Unfortunately any time prior to 1:00 AM, and all I do is lay there in bed and toss and turn. This serves to aggravate me, and I get up and read a book, which means I will be up till 4:00 AM, therefore only getting 2 hours of sleep. It seems like a vicious circle, but I generally don't think anything about it.
Once a month or so, my body decides that enough is enough. For the past 2 days, I have managed to slumber though my work, and complete all tasks required of me. However, when I get home I have found myself sleeping sitting up on the couch. It's a simple matter of you can abuse your body for just so long before it will take matters into its own control and force correction. I just wish it would do that with some of my other bad habits, smoking for one.
I will try to be a little more observant, and keep my schedule more subdued. Hopefully this will allow me to keep up with my blogging, and get the required sleep. On a healthier note, I have decided to attempt to quit smoking again. I am planing out the procedure this time, and will have things in place for when I "need" that coffin nail. I am going to be using a friends blog as a support group, Maggie's Mind. She has a blog where she supports a number of people trying to quit smoking. She is another friend from Plurk, and has commented here before.
For the time being, I plan to enjoy the holiday weekend, with a barbecue at a friends house. We will be having smoked brisket, and I am making stuffed jalapeno's for a treat. I brown venison burger, and mix in the seeds from the jalapeno's. I then stuff the ground meat and a four cheese mixture into the jalapeno's, wrap them with bacon, and grill on a charcoal grill. Of course there will be a margarita machine, and I will have plenty of my Shiner Hefewizen to drink. Hopefully I'll still be able to walk home when its all done. We'll talk to everybody later, and I hope all of you have a wonderful 4 th of July, enjoy.
