Either way, I am wide awake. Miscellaneous aches and pains, in my shoulder and back, are bedevilling me, prevailing over a deep desire to sleep. I have been up and down since 1:15. When my wife had a nightmare around 3:45, screaming in her sleep, I went back upstairs, thinking I might be lucky enough to nod off. I’m tired now, and think I might be close to sleeping. To me this is the really suck-y part of getting older.
