Have you ever heard of the term ‘Waking up on the wrong side of the bed’? That was me this morning. After I finished my post (last night/this morning), I crawled into bed. I believe it was around 2:30am. Shortly after 6am, I was awakened with a start to the sound of dueling chainsaws. Within a matter of minutes, a ‘chipper’ joined in. I grumpily climbed out of bed and walked over to the window to see what the heck was going on. From what I observed, a tree crew from one of the local landscaping companies had shown up to remove a couple of dead/dying trees from out in front of the hospital. After looking out the window, I shook my head in disgust. I tried to return to bed to catch up on some much-needed sleep but the jarring sounds continued, because once the chainsaws and woodchipper were no longer needed, a stump grinder and industrial leaf blower were put to use. I’ll put it this way, it’s not been a good day. I ended up taking a nap this afternoon but it didn’t help much. I sure hope tomorrow is better. Sigh.
