Even With a Good Book

Published by under a bit of everything

I had trouble falling asleep last night. I had a super busy day yesterday. First of all, it was my birthday. I received many nice surprises. My husband ordered me a beautiful cake. I took it to dinner with my girlfriends and we shared it. The restaurant we tried for the first time surprised me with a free steak dinner. The waitress treated me to a glass of wine.

I was anxious to get to bed but my brain wouldn’t shut down. I thought that reading my book would put me to sleep but I was in a part that was intense and that added to my brain whirling.

I just finished reading 600 hours of Edward by Craig Lancaster . I was afraid that the book would be more of a documentary about someone with Asperger’s syndrome but it wasn’t that at all. The book was a fun and eventful page turner. I downloaded the sequel, Edward Adrift. Edward is a real person with a life that many of us experience. His condition makes him deal with things in ways that I take for granted. He has learned, with years of therapy, how to calm himself down and focus on situations that used to send him into a rage or misguided and frightening anguish. It is a fascinating and endearing story of friendship. I will be sad when it ends.

I have to prepare for a workman’s comp insurance audit. Ugh. The auditor will be here in a few hours. I guess I better get going! Have a great day, everyone.
