The kids gave me a little potted plant for my birthday one year and now it is a big ol' bush in the backyard. I took a leap a drew it in black pigma pen (gulp! no erasing), but I'm happy with the result. I started to paint the label in pink but I didn't like it so after a couple of letters I switched to purple, then as I was painting along I thought wow, maybe I'm being very clever because hydrangea blossoms will change color depending on how you amend the soil.
So I've been missing for most of the month. I found out I have sleep apnea, and I wake up 44 times PER HOUR every night. That's 44 episodes of non-breathing for ten seconds or more PER HOUR. I must be brain damaged, it explains a lot!! I finally had a medical explanation for my exhaustion (I guess 2 jobs, 3 kids and a husband wasn't enough), and I decided to rest a little, only do the essential (which is still a lot!). I have had my c-pap machine for 4 nights now. It's not the miracle cure I had hoped for but I am told to give it time. Normally I am aware of waking up 8 to 16 times per night, and now I am down to 4 times, so the 44 times per hour must be down as well. I did feel pretty good today.
As it is now 9:11pm here, I wish you all a wonderful night of sleep!
