This weekend/week sucks.

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but I've been dead tired, because of insomnia (which seems to be sweeping some of my other friends on here, maybe it's catching?) I've never been an early sleeper by any means, but instead of, say, 3amish the previous four nights I'd managed to get to sleep sometime between 8-10am, mostly toward the latter end of that time period. Then last night *finally* I managed to get sleep at the early time of.. er... 7am. *bleh*... and I slept through til almost 3pm, so for the first time in about a week I feel rested. Mostly.

It doesn't help that one of those nights (Saturday morning), I was woken up after 2 whole hours' sleep to the news that my mother would be on her way to the hospital as soon as the ambulance got there. She was having breathing difficulties again (apparently this is expected to continue every few months or so as long as she lives, as fluid builds up in her lungs and so on, and eventually starts making it difficult for her to breathe... then she has to go in, get all the fluid out again, make sure she's okay, and so on). The worry about that didn't exactly help with the insomnia situation either I'd imagine, but now it's looking like everything's fine, no complications or anything, and she should be out on Wednesday probably.

Then of course tomorrow my father has to go get some cataracts surgically removed from his eyes, so the gods only know what he's going to be like after that, and this also means that he's not going to be able to drive anywhere for days, etc. Which means that I'm probably going to have to go fetch my mom. I hate hospitals, and I don't even have any idea what time she'll be discharged. When I'm not even sure if I'll be able to get to sleep before around 10am or so. Lovely.

What is UP with this week?

I think I really need a "pissed off" or "shoot me now" type of icon. -_-
