27. How do you like being roused in the morning? Naturally, not by alarm or pain.  This morning I did not mind being awakened by alarm, other than I was deep in REM sleep.  I was having an uncomfortable dream, where I could not hold on to things and when they dropped there was even more to pick up and no where to put them....also I could not find my phone and I needed to make a phone call for someone to pick me up...a lot of things were interrupting me....I guess I needed to wake up. I the meaning seems obvious to out of control things seem for me right now.

My days are generally the same...taking care of Mr BC and his medicine.  Luckily I can leave him by himself after lunch and Friday I tried to do some Christmas Shopping.   I am going to try to get some decorations up today and clean the kitchen....this week I was only able to walk the dogs....I did not get to the mall to walk again. Monday will be a little different as Mr BC is going to the hospital for an out patient surgery to have his dialysis port placed so he will be ready for dialysis when he needs has to heal well.
