My get up and go...

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

My get up and go has got up and went without me I think.

We found out today that my beau's mom is in the hospital in on the critical care unit and has been in the hospital since last Saturday...his stepdad posted on FaceBook and we called her cell phone. She said she was trying to call both his cell phone and mine but the call would never go through...in talking to his brother we finally figured out that she had both our old numbers and our new numbers and we think she was dialing our old numbers. His brother got her phone fixed up for her so that is taken care of. She has COPD, which we knew about, but something is going on that is causing fluid to build up on her lungs...they did a biopsy and have her on oxygen until they get the results back. She didn't sound too bad when we talked to her....we have talked to her in the past when she has sounded a LOT worse. We are hoping that maybe it is a remnant of another chest cold. She is one tough lady.

I am slowly working my way back to a regular sleeping schedule, got to bed around midnight last night and was up a bit before 9am, but I am still kinda groggy until sometime in the afternoon...which is actually pretty normal for me. I was never a very active morning person, awake enough to appreciate the day, but not too active.
Our room is downstairs in the basement so it is a bit cooler, but I cannot stand being down there all the time. Some kids tried to break into the house last year (I think it was last year), and they broke the window down there in what is now our room and since it wasn't being used at the time, it was just boarded over. It is also one of the culprits in my sleeping more...natural light is always better to help you wake up in the mornings, it is for me anyways!

I had plans for today, weather and asthma permitting, and they both ganged up on me. The weather isn't too bad, if you like hot and humid, which my asthma does not.
I wanted to get to the library today which would have given me over 5 miles riding but instead, I am left feeling like I have to make a conscious effort to breathe. Which leaves me feeling tired, which makes me want to take a nap, which will throw my bedtime back to 3 in the morning, which is SO NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

I haven't heard back yet about my job interview yesterday morning. I left her a message yesterday afternoon and one this morning. I am not sure about leaving more messages though....I don't want to sound like I am begging for a job, and I don't want to get on her nerves, but I DO want her to know that I am very interested.

Even though we are saving up for a car, I told my beau that we need to order out tonight...it is just so flippin hot today, it was close to 90 in the house, and if I turn on the stove or oven to cook, I am going to turn blue and keel over. I am thinking Mexican food would be good. With Mexican, I am able to keep the portion size reasonable and its definitely lighter and fresher than fast food.

Ah well, thats about all for my day today,
Take care and love yourself

    Sorry about your beau's mom! I hope she gets well soon.

    I'm the same with the light thing, it is SO hard for me to wake up during the winter! Have you tried getting an inexpensive timer and having it turn on a lamp ~ a half hour before you have to get up? There are "sunrise simulators" that will turn them on gradually but most are expensive. If you put the lamp so it's not right in your face it won't be too harsh. Can't hurt to try!

    So sorry about your beau's mother hope she gets well soon. You sound like you are going through a bad patch health wise, it must be very frustrating for you. Still praying for you and that job. I am getting up later and later too. emoticon take care of yourself.

    Waiting is so hard to do!

    Heat: same here, I napped some today but I
    still sleep at night too.

    Food: I tend to make cold sandwiches
    like tuna salad in the summer. I agree
    cooking makes the house hotter.

    I hope the weather cools down
    for you. A basement has more
    humidity, which doesn't help
