BUT... last night was really really cold. I love it when I snuggle under the comforter but last night it was almost too cold for the comforter. And this morning when I got up, I instantly felt that my breathing was better than it has been for a week or more. Weird. Swimming was way better, easier. It's great. Here's hoping it lasts a while.
After sleeping on it, I've decided to tell Ann that I've reconsidered Christmas Eve and I think I'm going to pass on going out to dinner with them then, but that I'll be happy to join them for Christmas dinner at their house. I think I can do that without hurting their feelings. The Christmas dinner will be very tasty and I can drink all I want, as the trip home is about 50 yards down the hall, no hills.
Today I'm thinking about taking a trip downtown. As long as I'm breathing, I might as well take advantage of it. I need to use my Orca card, I need a mesh bag they sell at Daiso downtown (and don't have at the one close to me) and I need rice at Uwajimaya. Orca cards are our transit cards. You can put money on them via the web but then you need to swipe the car within 60 days or 90 days or it goes dormant and is a major pain to revive.
I'm really over this whole 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination. NPR spent nearly 2 solid hours on it and TV's been on it for days. I get that it's momentous. I was in high school. I remember it wall very well. I don't need a reminder. (I do get that most people were are not old enough to remember but still... enough already.)
I think it's time to make the bed and get bundled up and hit the road.
