Yes, I do too. Last night I woke up at 2 am to wake dh up as he was sleeping in the recliner too. All the windows & the sliding glass door were all open & it got down to 55F last night & it felt like it was freezing cold. I am just getting ready to leave for work now.

I'm trying to figure out if I am nauseous or hungry. It's incredibly annoying when it's hard to tell.

Trying to wake up even though I have been out of bed for an hour

I have errands to run and need to do them while DH is home to drive me - can't drive because of the extra meds. On the good side of things - the room has stopped spinning!

Perfect nap conditions.

You know what happens if I decide to have a nap...all hell will break loose. Maybe I'll go bake something instead.

I am kicking myself! Don't worry, it is only figuratively!

I had a pom pom maker from my childhood. It was the perfect pom pom maker. You put various plastic pieces together and wound the wool around halves which you clicked together, cut the strands, wrapped and tied, then unsnapped everything and fluffed and trimmed. I found it while cleaning out my Dad's placed when we sold it. I kept it and about 6 months ago while cleaning up I decided I would never use it and memories take up space.

I am trying to finish a baby hat for my photographer friend to use as a prop on a newborn shoot and I need two beautiful fluffy pom poms. Yes, there are others on the market (I am making one out of corrugated plastic) but I had a perfect one just 6 months ago.

Oh well, one day I will find the perfect blend of pack rat and neat freak!

Yay! It was hungry. I have eaten three bowls of brown basmati rice with butter and not feeling nauseous today. It still takes nothing to make me tired.

Even pay phones (you remember them, don't you?) allow a 911 call without depositing or charging any money. So I will still be able to make a 911 call from a land line phone. (Thanks for the memory jog.)
Any cell phone as well, even if it doesn't have service, or if it's locked can still be used to call 911.

I am basking in the thought that just a short while ago I had a beautiful five carat yellow perfect diamond on my hand. I hated to take it off, but I had to in order to try on the 10 carat yellow diamond. And no, it was not in a jewelry store. It was right here in my own home. Ah, the life of luxury!
