Sunday night, despite my best efforts, I only got 4 hours of sleep. I had to get up at 4:30am to get ready to go to the doctor's office. The good points are that she says I'm down 40lbs and my blood pressure is good.
Not so good. I was way too tired to do what I did next. I went to the church to clean the nursery. It's three large rooms in a modular until attached to the church building. We took all the toys and furniture out of the first room, dusted, cleaned the counters, swept, mopped, vacuumed and used a rug doctor. We then cleaned everything that went back in that room, taking the bedding from the cribs home to wash.
Then we did the same with the second room which is the largest.
By the time we got to the first room, I was bushed and over heated. I cleaned the bathroom, but other than that we simply pushed everything against the walls, swept and mopped around them, vacuumed and rug doctored.
We had had a late breakfast and worked our way through lunch. My roommate who worked very hard along side of me requested Chinese food. So, that's what we ate. I ate WAY too much! The cashew chicken was delicious. I ate about 3 forks of rice and threw the rest away.
All night my stomach was bloated and hurting. My body ached. My head hurt.
When I got up the next morning, I didn't feel much different. Only suddenly I started seeing a floating black dot. This is something I have had all my life, but usually only see on foggy days. Very disconcerting at best. Rather frightening overall.
Went to do our regular Tuesday night cleaning after work. Father Noe anointed me with oil and prayed over me.
This morning I still have the black dot. However, I have noticed that if I focus on something I don't see it. Right now it's visible to me when I'm not focused on anything in particular.
At least I don't have to go clean the church again til Saturday.

    Is that like a floater? It sounds uncomfortable. Hope you are better soon.
    What a busy day you had. That is a lot of cleaning!

    I wonder have you seen an eye doctor about that spot on your eye? If not, I sure do pray that you will consider doing so. If it is what I believe to be termed "a floater", both my husband & I have them & eye doctors have told us that they are nothing to be concern about.

    Not getting enough sleep can be a bummer. I generally get an average of six hours & would like to get more. Could it be an aging thing when it is so normal? I wonder!

    Man! You worked really hard after not sleeping well! Does the dot become noticable more when you lack sleep? Or is it always there? That is great about the pounds down and blood pressure!!!! Great job!!! I will be praying for healing for you!❤️
