asleep at the wheel….. August 7, 2013Posted by Stella☆LunaC in Random Musings.

The ride to Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center Milwaukee is a little less than hour, 85 miles round-trip. I’ve travelled the route many times, could do it in my sleep. Recently I nearly did just that, literally.
I am desperately in need of sleep, and sure the ride to Milwaukee for another Dr appointment and labs, will be a grueling one, fighting to keep my eyes open both there, and back again. On the way home on Monday, I caught myself 3 times, closing my eyes, and drifting off into a catatonic state. Someone on the other side was walking toward me, told me to wake up and I did. That person’s image kept me alert the rest of the way home.
With 45 minutes until departure, I am caffeinated to the teeth, and may have to make an espresso as backup. If I can muster up the energy to go back downstairs and make one….
almost time to leave, catchya on the flip side…
