The night visitor

I woke up about 1:30 this morning and had a terrible time for the next 3 hours. I was coughing, I couldn't breathe through my nose, I couldn't get comfortable, I adjusted the bed 8 ways to Sunday, nothing helped. I felt miserable. I decided that I'd call the lung nurse practitioner for an appointment this morning. Then I decided no, I'd do the prednisone first. They tell you to only take prednisone with meals so my plan was breakfast, start the course. Fuck this. I'm too old to put up with this shit.

Finally I got up at 4:30 and went to the pool. The first few laps were a little rough but after that, smooth sailing. It was a really good swim. No coughing, no breathing problems, nose fine and not stuffed. And that's how I feel now at 8 am so no prednisone. Weird.

The sun came out very early this morning so the heat is on. Hot today, way hotter tomorrow. I learned many summers ago that if I can capture the cool in my house in the morning, I can pretty much keep it all day. So the door to the outside is shut (it's my only access to outside), the insulated shades are down and the a/c is on temp set. It will kick in if/when it gets any warmer in here. I think I'm safe.

I will be going out in it later today when my Echo Auto arrives. I will brave the heat to install and test. Oh! I just checked and delivery is 1 stop away. Cool. Maybe I can test while it is still cool!

Other than that, today will be inside. I have sewing to do and I need to find a new audio book. I started one a couple of days ago but instead of getting more interesting, it's getting annoying. So... the end.

Guess I'd better go get some clothes on and get ready for new tech!!
