cold war

It is in the cold chilly wet death flow 2:01 PM Friday afternoon. I just got up from trying to take a nap. I went down in the lower level to take a nap but could not fall asleep so I got up. As I was trying to fall asleep I heard Carol leave.

I am tired this afternoon because I hardly slept last night. I tossed and turned all night plus I was hot. I woke up several times to wipe sweat off my face. I was sleeping in pools of sweat. Finally I got up around 5:30 AM to face my existence.

This morning I went to a Used Books Sales and found these used books to add to our library-

"A New History Of The Cold War" by John Lukacs

"Wilkie Collins" a short biography by Peter Ackroyd

I was home from the used books sale by 10:15 AM. Carol had a class at the hospital from 8 o'clock AM till 12:30 PM.

So the day crawls by. I was close since I feel absolutely wasted. All I have attempted to read today is the book, "Partisans: Marriage, Politics, And Betrayal Among The New York Intellectuals" by David Laskin.
