Under pressure

So I've my CPAP for three nights now. I was hoping I'd be all used to it, but I'm not there quite yet. It makes my nose a little sore, but at least I've now gotten beyond the idea that I'm going to suffocate. Now it wakes me up instead of the sleep apnea, but I do think I'm sleeping better when I am asleep.

Which has not stopped me from being totally exhausted all weekend. You know how, if you go a while without sleeping well, once you start getting caught up on that sleep debt you can't quite sleep enough? I think that's what's happening.

All in all it's been a decent weekend. Olga's doing better and they're starting to wean her off the lung bypass. Still haven't gotten to see her. I was relatively productive, though. Got a couple of notes done, went to Costco, got a couple of things done around the house. I finally got some boxes unpacked downstairs (about 20 down, another 3,547,256,128 to go) and even finally removed the dead mouse (ewww! Ewww!! Ewwww!) that I found in a box a couple of months ago (and promptly screamed and then put the box in the corner). The corner still smells a little, but I'm hoping that was the only source... I worked out, got some groceries, went to coffee today, did some laundry, did the dishes, made lunch for tomorrow...you know. The usual weekend-y kind of stuff.

Did not manage to get on the bike this weekend, despite absolutely gorgeous weather. I think I'm being avoidant. And the bike needs gas.

I do love a weekend.....

Sounds like it was a 'nice ordinary' weekend---which while boring---is sometimes necessary.

Glad to hear about Olga.

And a mouse in the house is what I am 'smelling' down here. Why didn't he go outside----jerk!

Love your word "avoidant'----I am a pro at that condition---hate it---and grumble when finally 'face up' to whatever----and then wonder why I put meself in that condition.

And it is a new week.
Enjoy carol
