Is This Monday?

Can’t be.  I haven’t had any sleep so it must be Sunday.

For those who don’t know, Amoeba has been in Hawaii for the past several days.  He arrived home at 5:20 this morning and called me to pick him up.  As is customary, I didn’t get to bed until after midnight.  As isn’t customary, I couldn’t sleep.  The last time I looked at my clock it was 2 a.m.  I was soundly asleep when the phone rang at 5:10 a.m. and Amoeba told me the ferry was docking.  Do the math.  I haven’t had enough sleep.

Don’t feel sorry for me though.  Amoeba has spent the last 5 days working in a different time zone, and having to wear long jeans in Hawaii (work regulations) when he is used to PNW weather conditions.  PLUS, he endured a cramped plane ride, a long bus ride, and a 4 hour wait at the ferry terminal — which was locked for a good part of the time leaving him standing outside in the rain — and he finally arrived home about 5:45 a.m. looking like something the cat would be too embarrassed to drag in, just in time to shower and head for the labs because he is teaching today.

I am off to deliver Avon, looking sadly like an Avon Lady the cat drug in — through the mouse hole.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Hope all is well… is there going to be a Punny Monday this week despite your exhaustiion? You don’t want all of us addicts to go into withdrawl do you?

  2. Poor guy. I’m sure he is at least happy to be at home with his love (after he teaches, of course). Be sure you both get to bed early t-nite!

    “No rest for the weary” applies here, Quilly, :0
    I cannot sleep good at all when Mrs. Jim is gone.

  4. We must be on the same wavelength. I went to bed late and got up early too. Thank goodness it wasn’t because I had to pick up somebody. I hope Amoeba isn’t very jet lagged and you get some sleep tonight.
