Song: “Top of the World” by The Carpenters
I know that current events don’t lend themselves much to silver linings, but it’s been wonderful with J working from home. She treats it like a regular work day – puts on real pants and everything, and I only see her when she takes a break or is on lunch – but it’s just so great that she’s around. The only downside is that the days are going by even faster than usual. I know the weekend was good but I can’t for the life of me remember what we did.
What has been happening the last two nights, though, is that I’ve been sleeping really well. My CPAP machine keeps track of how many breathing-related things happen while I’m sleeping, with the good range being below ten per hour. Usually I’m around 2.5 to 3.5, but three nights ago it was 5.8. I was a little concerned that my machine needed adjustment, but the following two nights my number has been around 1.3, which is great. I also don’t remember waking up because of nightmares or worrying the last two nights, either. I even got up with my alarm today without too much whimpering.
I’ve been keeping quite busy with the usual things. The printer has been busy and I’ve been working on and/or arguing with lots of projects, most of which have been going well. I have a Carpenters song stuck in my head, which is a little problematic. Could be worse – at least it’s a little more uptempo than some of their other songs.
J and I started watching Good Omens yesterday. The show isn’t too bad so far but the characters look different than they did in my mind’s eye when I read the book. I suppose that’s to be expected. I’ve also been taking a little bit of time in the evenings to watch some “classic” shows. The most recent one has been Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory from 1971. It’s… uhm… well, let’s just say it’s not how I remember it, so I’ve been watching it a bit at a time. I know it’s from a different time, but it’s a little cringe-inducing.
I haven’t volunteered at the church for a while now and don’t have any plans to go. I’m pretty sure it’s closed to the public now.
Tomorrow afternoon I have a phone appointment with Dr H. I think it’s a follow-up about the liver stuff we’ve been investigating, so nothing too exciting.
J just turned on her computer and we’re going to play some Stardew Valley before she heads off to bed. Hopefully everyone gets a good sleep tonight!
