This may not take

For some reason I decided last night to skip the breathe right strip.  So between the hot and the not breathing, I woke up 3 times in the first hour of sleep.  I finally got up and fixed the nose with a strip and then ignored the hot.  I was partially successful but I'm thinking that this A/C off experiment might be a fail.  We'll see.

I'm having a hard time finding my next book to read.  This happens a lot. My best scenario is to have a non-fiction and a fiction going on the Kindle and an audio book.  I generally read the non-fiction when I'm eating in a restaurant.  I read the Kindle fiction in the daytime and then at night, for an hour before sleep, I listen to my audio book while I'm playing casual computer games.

Right now, the only really good one I have going is the non-fiction.

I pay $16 a month for Audible.Com.  And I get more than my money's worth every single month.  One of their great  benefits is book returns.  If I don't like a book, I can return it and get my money back.  For the past two nights, I've abandoned two books.  I need to return them both.  Now I'm trying the first of a - so far - three book series. (The Burning by Jane Casey) I have high hopes.

Today's swim is in the Southwest pool in West Seattle.  It's funny how each pool around the city has a different population and so a vastly different feel.  On Sunday mornings the Southwest pool is fat old ladies and a few old guys.  No kids.  It's kind of wild.  I am usually the second one there.  I wait for them to open with a guy who's probably late 50's and NOT chatty.  The two of us stand in the waiting area waiting for the front desk person to get set up.  Finally, last week, my chipper Good Morning was at least acknowledged with an audible grunt from him.  Progress.

I don't really have any other plans.  I might stop somewhere for brunch/lunch after and I might not.  There's a Mariner game this afternoon and the pool is on the other side of the stadium from here.  It should be a concern about getting home through the traffic but, honestly, they have gone from suck to way worse and I cannot imagine that traffic will be much different than the average afternoon so it's not really a consideration.

Tonight's soccer game - at the other stadium in the neighborhood - will be quite different.  The Sounders bought the hottest American soccer player ever and he plays at home for the first time tonight. Plus they play Portland. They have sold out every square inch of the stadium. It promises to be a madhouse out there from about 5ish until the game starts at 7.

This may be yet another reason for backing off my turning off the A/C experiment.  If it gets too loud, I may have to close the door and that will make it way too hot without the A/C.

I have an hour before time to leave for the pool.  I think I'll go empty the dishwasher.
