Freezing

I’d turned the heater up on the waterbed a few days ago and it was too warm night before last. I turned it down and overdid it. The control isn’t easy to control. I bought this particular heater because it has a built-in shield to cut down on EMFs. I don’t sleep with it on as a general rule but it mattered at the time.

A cold wave has come through and it was frigid in the bedroom. I wrapped up in the covers and tried to get warm. Didn’t work. I turned on the Dr. Heater and the waterbed heater. I didn’t clock watch so I don’t know how long it took me to get to sleep.

My night turned into morning and it was almost 7:30 when I woke. The thermometer said it was 16 degrees outside. My friend was supposed to be here by 9 so I crawled out and got started on the day. She called while I was having my devotions. She hadn’t slept well, either, and wasn’t going to make it when she’d planned. That was fine with me. I could use the extra time.

After calling to find out how to get here (she’d left her directions at home), there she was at the door. I let her in and we set about getting the laptop situated. Before she left, she gave me all the paperwork and software pertaining to it. Going through everything, it blew my mind that the salesperson had taken such advantage of her. She’d been sold all sorts of software and extras that she didn’t need. I’m sure they rejoice to see people like her come in the door.

I’ve been running programs and there was one Trojan that was found. Other than that, it had adware and malware. There’s plenty still to do.

I worked on the lessons and completed another two. When I wrote this, I got sidetracked and started working on them some more. True to my nature, I got so engrossed a half hour had passed before I realized it. I had to make myself stop.

DD called late this afternoon. This morning, DD had taken merm to the airport so she could fly to visit her parents over the holiday. I cut our conversation short because she (DD) hadn’t had much to eat today and was nursing a headache.

Speaking of headaches, I don’t have one but I’m so sleepy I’m about to fall over. I haven’t dosed Twinkle yet and it’s getting late. I turned the heater back up on the waterbed so I should sleep warm tonight.

    Glad you’re learning to go to bed earlier!
