How long does it take a person to cut their losses, and go on to what is best for you? It’s taken me a lifetime, but I’m getting better.
I had to ask myself this morning: What is a 74 year old woman doing in a tiny, hot room, with three men, a German, a Swede, and a Scotsmen…all with stinky feed, and loud snorers. (I’m sure I did my share of that, as well.)
And….I woke up in the middle of the night seeing an arm with a hand, fingers extended, hanging out over the top bunk, like it was trying to reach me. It was in silhouette, and for a minute, I forgot where I was.
I couldn’t get any sleep and the bed from the bunk up above me squeaked all night. And the community room was noisy far into the night.
I deserve better in my 74 years, so I requested an upgrade to a private room. It’s going to cost me, but for four more days, I’ll have some peace and quiet, and to my knowledge, no one will try to get me in the middle of the night.
