Is there a pattern?

I’m trying to see if there is a pattern, not to a quilt, but to the life I’m leading recently. I have a good day, followed by a horrible night and a bad day by a good night. Is that the way it’s going to be? I sure hope not, this is getting tiring, in more ways than one. I had a good day Monday and barely slept a wink that night, had a shaky day on Tuesday. Tuesday night I slept great and Wednesday was less shaky but not wonderful. Wednesday night I slept like a baby and Thursday was a shaky day, Thursday night I slept and Friday was a shaky day, Friday night I slept but yesterday was a great day. No pattern I can see, but I’m going to start keeping track and see if I can figure this out.

So yesterday I had a great day. I finished most of my cutting. Most because I am waiting for an order of fabric to arrive… yes I had to buy. I want a nice dark but not black solid for my Super Duper Easy and I didn’t have one, so I bought. Not a problem as I see it, but a solution. I needed it, I plan to use it right away, so I bought it. I won’t say I bought two pieces since I couldn’t decide on line which color I wanted… I will use it up eventually… or maybe even as the backing to this quilt!

Once all the cutting was done I started sewing. I sewed together a whole bunch of 2 1/2 inch squares of Aunt Graces and most of Step Two for the Summer Mystery. When all the 2 1/2 inch Aunt Grace squares were gone I had to sew them together into four patches, so I could see how they look… perfect of course!

And since I had the four patches done I wanted to see a finished block for the Summer Mystery so I sewed a few of those together too… I love it!

And while I was at it, how about a few blocks of the other scrappy project, easily done, and I think that will look great too!

Last night I went to bed at 10 and was still wide awake at 11 so I got up and read till 1:45 and went back to bed and laid there for what seemed like forever wide awake. I was thinking of the third project, a way to add some spice to it… When the alarm went off I had a hard time getting up. I probably could have slept some more, but then I would probably have a hard time sleeping tonight, maybe, time will tell.


  1. About the wild sleep problems, I have to ask, how old are you? Sleep becomes more elusive and difficult as we get older, and that happens surprisingly early. I thought it would show up when I was in my 50's, but surprise, surprise, it happened around the time I turned 40, and has continued to get more and more *fun* since then. Add stress of any kind, and I find I get a good night every 7 to 10 days.
    If you are young, and not stressed out, you might want to talk to your DR if this persists for more than a few weeks. Keeping a sleep journal is a really good idea and can be important if you do see a DR.
    Good luck, and good sleep, to you! I sincerely hope this is just a passing problem for you, that passes on quickly!

  2. Hi Marge, The medicine is really doing a job on your sleep patterns. It is taking your body a long time to adjust to it. Has the doctor suggested anything else that you could take instead of the Prednisone? Keep an eye on your blood sugar, as steroids can make that rise.
