Where did the weekend go????

Monday, October 18, 2010

At least my kitchen got cleaned up this weekend. I hope to get the living room straightened up next. Hubby couldn't get vacuum to work and I found a large crumpled piece of paper in the main suction area. Also, bought and installed a new bag for the vacuum. Viola', the vacuum works now!!!

Well, back to work today and hope my coworker returns who has been out since the beginning of September with some sort of illness. (Supervisor does not share this info.) We have gotten completely overwhelmed with a backlog and I have been fending off the disgruntled attorneys who are looking for bills for their cases. I hope to be able to spend more time working on the requests and less time answering phone inquiries about where their paperwork is..... emoticon


Good news this morning...scale finally got "unstuck" and showed about a 2 lb weight loss. emoticon

    Congratulations on getting the scale to move in the right direction. And I will ask that question again, "Where did the weekend go?"

Good night's sleep 2 nights in a row...!!! woo hoo!!!

Sunday, October 17, 2010

I am feeling pretty chipper (compared to pre-CPAP machine) and it has been less than a week. Both nights this weekend I slept in an extra 3 hours in the morning as I know I am still sleep deprived and it seems to be improving my general feeling of well being. I am still swimming about 5 times a week and going in the whirlpool afterwards and doing exercises there, also. I need to get my quad strength improved so I can walk better and do stairs better, but I know I cannot do this quickly as I still have the danger of reinjuring myself and it is just a fact of life that I will not recover from my knee replacement and subsequent quadriceps tear for quite awhile. I am improving a little bit each day, however. emoticon

    I am glad that you have found some help getting your beauty sleep. I like to call it that because without my proper rest, things can get pretty ugly, pretty fast. Nice to see you heading upward!

THE MESSIES GUIDE TO LIFE...

Friday, October 15, 2010

I'm tired of the messes....I have to be careful not to trip when in my living room, bedroom and office....I have a friend who said she will come over on Saturday to help me out.... she came last Sunday but we went shopping for groceries and had a nice dinner and just didn't seem to have enough time to get any cleaning done. Will try to get an earlier start on Saturday.

I bought a book once called "the Messies Guide to life" but it got lost somewhere in the clutter.

    that sounds like a great plan !!! I have been working on the same thing. Maybe I should read that book. Recently I organized the workout bedroom with baskets for the dvds and another one for the weights along with a special wall hooks for the resistance bands. It sure looks nice when it's done.

You will love the results !!!

Slept well but have question about CPAP

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I had a hard time getting my facemask to sit properly and it kept leaking up by my eyes (which I know is not good), and part of the night I am sure it wasn't functioning properly. I moved the mask around and tried tightening the straps but I struggled with the leaks around the top. Perhaps I am just going to have to go in to see the people who sold me this as I probably just need a few pointers on how to put this dang thing on that makes me looked like an alien!!!Most of the night I slept pretty well and am only a little headachy this morning. I did add humidity this time and perhaps will try a little more of that tomorrow.

I was warned it takes awhile to get used to this but my previous (first) night was so good I thought I had it handled.... emoticon

    Air does come out that is normal. Does your machine shows it is leaking. I can't sleep without my machine. It is the best thing I every did.

    I got some more instruction in how to put the mask on and I think I have a handle on it now...will see... emoticon

    There is always a period of adjustment. One of my friends has tried 4 different masks to find the right one that fits! Good luck but glad you are sleeping a little better. HUGS!

  It takes awhile to get used to. They can give you pointers to get it on without leaking etc. I finally went to a mask with nose pillows instead of nose covering one due to feeling claustrophobic with my nose covered.
