Good Morning

I hope

Woke up about 3am with a very sore throat and burning sinuses. I really hope it is from two days of paint fumes! I do not want to get sick. Not that many people do I suppose.

I have been sleeping so much better the last couple of weeks. I made a couple of med changes and suddenly my FitBit and my back to dreaming tells me I am getting REM sleep again. Weird side effect from the Boniva, which I have to take Sunday again, I just stopped dreaming. Today is an unintentional early day because Frank was sleeping in Bennys spot and Benny woke me up to move him. Silly Beagle. After Benny got in bed Frank got up and said HEY GET UP AND FEED ME! So here I am.

Every time I woke up my 2nd thought, my 1st was damn my throat hurts, was that my ceiling was repaired! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off me. Looking at that 37 times a day for two years because it is right in my eye line. Knowing that anyone who came in is going to see it immediately. Want to see something funny?

The wall on the left is actually the same color as the wall on the right. My iPad changed it to white for this picture. See.

Something about the lighting and probably a different type of paint. Also This is the first time those curtains have been washed and they look so much better. I did not even notice how dirty they were. 🙂

I gained two pounds last week. I worked really hard at eating to do that. Ridiculous. I knew at some point it was going to happen that I would suddenly switch from try to lose weight to trying to gain weight, I just did not know it would be from a drug. I am a little nervous now of course about stepping on the scale and seeing what this week brought. I am happy with my size and do not want to have to think about it either way.

Backtrack for a second. I love my curtains. They are linen and the pattern on the is very subtle in normal not iPad, light. I have the same brand and color valance in my kitchen which is directly opposite.

Hmm I just realized my head kind of hurts too. Sigh…. Going to be a sad thanksgiving if I cancel it at the last minute due to sickness.

What a strange post I have just written. I wrote it the way my brain was saying it, segues and all. Off for more coffee, dog feeding, workout, long hot shower. Oh, and some Tylenol in there too I think.

    Fixing those things that bug you all the time, big or small, is just priceless. I’m so glad that’s fixed for you!

    I really hope you don’t get sick. I tried 6 days of mucinex and Tylenol before I finally gave up because of the extreme coughing. I don’t think I ever coughed so hard before. I could not control it at all. So if you start going down that road, I hope they can get you something good right away. My sister-in-law ended up with a steroid, prescription mucinex, two kinds of cough medicine, and an antibiotic. This thing affected my eyes and my vision and I have never had that side effect. I don’t know how my husband has avoided getting it. It is just everywhere here.

    I will think good thoughts for you!!!
