I am sitting here waiting on my father to come. I never know what time he will arrive, but I NEED MY BENADRYL! LOL I am jonesing for my fix tonight. Take a few of those suckers and you feel like you got a shot of Valium. I will go to sleep and sleep like a baby all night. Dad will only give me six at a time for fears I will abuse them. Sigh! Wonder what I did for the thirty odd years I wasn't under his thumb.
I have been so lonely today. Joyce came by this afternoon and brought a whole bucket of pecans she had picked up. I couldn't say no. I don't know when I will get them cracked. It is the thought that counts I keep telling myself. Joyce also made the mistake of letting Maggie out my front door and Maggie went tearing across my yard to explore the neighborhood. It was the first time she had gotten free since I moved here. I was terrified that she would run out into the main highway down the street and get ran over. Luckily, Joyce called her and she came running back inside, blissfully cheerful, as if nothing had happened.
My new Model Railroader came in the mail yesterday. I was overjoyed to get it. I can literally devour an issue in one sitting, reading it from cover to cover. I have dreams of one day modeling the late Chattahoochee Valley Railway. I actually went so far as to model one of the engines, an SW1500, and it turned out great. Next, I want to model the distinctive boxcars with the herald, "Cotton for the Looms of West Point." Luckily, I have a very good book with photographs as the railroad has long been defunct. A victim of the scrap yard's torch.
I realize tonight that I look forward to going to bed. For nine or ten hours, I can forget about the world, wrapped up in my warm covers with Maggie by my side. I've been sleeping so well lately other that last night's bout with insomnia. I go to sleep dreaming of digital cameras. I am hoping these new ads will make enough for me to get a bonafide full size DSLR camera. I took a long nap today, though, and should be ready for bed tonight despite it. I will take four Benadryl and sleep like a baby. Maybe Dad is not too far off. I look forward to seeing him tonight. I want to show off my Christmas tree.
