We arriving so late into St. Catharines with my judgement and decision-making ability impaired.  There was a gap in the vertical blinds and I knew I needed to sleep-in to try to catch up on sleep.  How to block the sun in the morning? I know!  I’ll hang a blanket up over the valance curtain rod to block it – perfect!  Now, find a blanket, stand on a rickety chair to drape it, and viola!   It wasn’t until the next morning I realized that the blinds weren’t broken, they were just open.  I just needed to pull the strings.

I wonder sometimes about the lack of sleep medical professionals deal with – I can’t even figure out blinds, let alone deal with an emergency.

August 7th, 2012 Extra-Ordinary:  After years of making effort to prepare foods to accommodate my brother-in-law’s and nephew’s allergies, I discovered that all they wanted was a bag of marshmallows.  Raw, not cooked.  Just marshmallows.  Straight from the bag.  Sigh.
