This morning I had a telephone conversation with a friend that moved into Brooksby one week after I did.

We see each other periodically, check up on what we have been up to, help each other with what we find interesting, and pass the word along.

There is a monthly calendar of in-house activities, there is a trip flyer that comes out once a month, and Brooksby has it's own TV program that runs daily with loads of information.

And if that's not enough, we also have what we call "the cubby."

When there is something new happening, a change, or anything of importance to communicate, we'll find it there.

There's more, but you get the idea.

I try to keep up with what's going on here, but having a friend to compare notes with helps a lot.

Now, here's where "Sleepy Time Gal" comes in.

While we were talking, I brought up something that has been on my mind for a while.  I've been going to bed very early.  Comes 9 o'clock,  I can't keep my eyes open, and off to bed I go.

Her response  to me was, "everyone goes to bed early here, it's not unusual, that's the way it is."

That made me feel so much better!

With all the activities, and the WALKING that we do, it's no wonder that we are ready for bed so early.


Cookies and Ice Cream!

Before I lived here I visited a number of times and was impressed with the smiling staff and happy residents.

I thought, "they must put something in the cookies!"

Now that I live here, and am sleeping so well at night, I know they do!

Ha ha ha. Only kidding! ;-)

As you've gotten older, has your sleeping routine changed?

They probably don't but they look so good I don't think I'd care!!!
Glad you're liking it there!!!!!
It sounds like a wonderful place and I hope that if I end up alone or need to move I will find such a rewarding lifestyle at my fingertips!! I go to bed around 10:00 but sometimes have insomnia and wake up around 3:00...that is no fun.
Hi Millie,
It is so nice to have so many choices to keep busy. I have to make up my own activities and find people to do it.

I love the photo of those cookies and wish I had them tonight with my dinner!
They would make me happy as I dine with Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!
I didn't tonight, but I often fall asleep while trying to watch a TV show. Last night I woke up in my chair at 1am. By the time I did email and FB, and got ready for bed, it was 3am! Then I slept until 8:30 am. I really must get my nights and days turned around again. Don't worry about going to bed early - you'll need the rest to keep up your busy schedule!!
Millie, I have always went to bed early and got up very early - like by 5:00. Our family business was construction and with 4 children to get ready for school. Now old and solo just habit. I am in bed by 8:00 and sometimes earlier for pray and reading, up by 5:00 or earlier to let little dog out and always a middle of the night snack because of health condition and I never eat much at evening meal...
I get up earlier and go to bed earlier then anyone I know :)
