The First Day of the Week

All day today, it’s been Sunday and I’m tired. I even took a nap today which is something I haven’t done for several. I think I’m as much tired OF as tired. I’m tired of having to wear a cannula and be trailed everywhere by Ralph. I’m tired of breathing treatments. I’m tired of taking pills off and on all day. I’m tired of not being able to sleep flat on a bed on my back, on my stomach, standing on my head if that’s what I want. All of the things I’m tired of are supposed to make me better and I hope someday to be free of them so I’ll persevere. I guess.

Something that might be beneficial but it’s aggravating is the coughing. Cough, cough, cough. Not constant but often enough that it’s annoying.

Now that I have the griping out of the way (I think), I’ll get on to other things.

First off, if I can get myself in gear, I’m planning a giveaway next week! It will start on Sunday night and end the following Sunday night. Be sure to stay tuned because this is a good one. Even if you don’t win, you will be eligible for a special offer that might be too good to refuse!

Today has been busy and slow and full and empty, all at the same time. I finally got the dishwasher unloaded and started loading it again. Last night’s low was 23 degrees so the heaters working full time have dried out the air again. Humidity is 35% which is ‘way too low. It’s warmed up outside so things should moderate inside, too.

DD called and we had a good visit. She clarified the Tiny House business. She had not, in fact, had a targeted talk with DS1. Her contact with DS2 via DIL2 was by email. Guess I assumed too much but, in my own defense, I was going on the information I was given. She did, however, encourage me to think about how I want to spend my last days on Planet Earth. By way of example, she plans to do that for herself when she’s “60 or 65”. I hope I’m still around to witness it. That will be interesting.

Cuz has been in and out today (mostly out) and she picked up some vanilla almond milk for me while she was in the valley. The little store didn’t have unsweetened and I’ve never tried this kind so it will be a new experience.

I napped a bit this afternoon and feel like I could go to bed now for the night. I do want to take a bath first. Another breathing treatment is due in a little over an hour. That will be the last one of the day. It’s terrible to wish my life away but I always like to see those done.

My bath is over and I’m about asleep on my feet. I guess the highlights of the day have been hit. I’m going to bed.

    If you’ll read your second sentence, I think you’ll see that it’s incomplete. I’m curious as to how long it had been since you napped during the day – several what?

      I’ll complete it for you—days. Not hours, weeks, or minutes. DAYS.

        Thanks. I had no idea which it might be.

          I don’t believe that’s totally accurate.
