Random Thoughts

If it can't be avoided completely, one should limit the amount of time spent living on another person's timetable.  Obviously, this does not apply to work schedules.
*****
I awoke this morning gasping for air because I was dreaming I was drowning.  Is it possible to hold your breath in your sleep?
*****
Momma needs a mani-pedi.
*****
I am grateful for IKEA.
Stephen begins the build, with all the bits and pieces laid out according to the directions

What? am I supposed to do now?
Almost done, Boss!


Yes, we bungee'd the tv to the top.  CATS.
*****
I was asked to maybe "sub" for a friend as an AD for a one-day, low-budget gig next week.  I both hope to get the job, because reasons, and hope NOT to get it, because getting it will mean that my friend's dad died.

I am grateful to have been in NC long enough for Stephen to inherit this chest from his uncle and the blankets (hand-crocheted by his Grandma).
*****
We're still "moving in" but we're HOME!

  1. The reason I don't get much sleep during my worst vertigo episodes is that I have vertigo in my dreams, too. It's exhausting. Yes, you can hold your breath in your sleep. I've awakened choking on air before. It may just be an aging thing. I'm not really sure about that.

    That chest and blanket are quite beautiful. Congrats on having a husband who actually reads and follows the printed directions. Those creatures are rare indeed! The bungee cords are especially decorative. Nice touch. ;-)

  2. LOL. He had asked me to help him build, mainly, I think, because he knows that I love shit like that. But the instructions had very few words for the reader, primarily pictures of a little man getting crushed by the little box he would try to use as a ladder without anchors ("X"), so I helped him by "supervising."

    The very first day we owned that tv, one of the cats knocked it to the ground, and Cocoa likes to stretch to reflective surfaces and scratch, so we have to place it very specifically AND bungee it. You know, reasons (a.k.a. CATS).

  4. My other half holds his breath so much when he sleeps, it scares me. It is actually a sleep disorder, but I would have to google the name!

    1. Sleep Apnea is when your airways get blocked regularly during sleep (by things like your tongue, I guess), so you gasp for air and end up waking multiple times, thereby disrupting your own sleep and that of your sleep partner. It's a medical thing that can be fixed, and if your Canadian Man "holds his breath" frequently, then he should probably be checked out for Sleep Apnea. What I experienced was just a dream. I've not done it before, and I hope never to do it again.

      Get your man checked out, and Good Luck!
