last week the internet went out for a minute and i thought fuck! it's that wiring. it wasn't but i got on the horn and found someone to fix it. the guy came today. the nicest guy in the world. he fixed it right up. No longer fragile... it's rock solid with clips and safely out of he way.
WHEW and yeah!!
But in even bigger news, I am better. I feel better - better than I did Saturday or Sunday. I just went out to walk up and down the hall and did the whole circuit without stopping for the first time in many days. I'm panting now but not as desperately as I have been. I really am encouraged.
It could be
1. This was the day I get better regardless.
2. I needed to not start the day with even a little exercise.
3. (or really 2a) I needed more rest/sleep.
4. The new inhaler I started (Spiriva) on Saturday, really is magic.
5. I needed to breathe no chlorine
6. Swimming kills.
I need 5 and 6 to please please please not be true.
But it is nice to not feel like shit. So nice.
I finally heard back from the scooter guy. I'm meeting him (in a public place) tomorrow at 11. Worst case, he's a serial killer and I'm a dead duck. Second worse case, the thing doesn't work and I'm out $200. He's sold a lot of other things and has a 5 out of 5 star rating so I'm guessing the killer thing is probably a no. The $200 is a crap shoot and I'm willing to shoot.
PLUS... Hopefully, I'll get it home set it up, test it out and then have no use for it!
I'm all set for the housecleaner on Tuesday. I have a basket full of stuff made from her goodies.
I have another bear to add to the pile but he's not finished yet.
