Thanks to Eclectic Alli for hosting this prompt.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I just completed the second part of my sleep study and that I couldn’t use the child’s mask they had since I am a mouth breather and they didn’t bother to find that out so had to use an adult mask that covered my mouth and covered just the bottom of my nose so it wasn’t sticking me in my eyes. I ended up falling asleep and never got a chance to get switched to a BiPap since it didn’t affect my sleep, so Medicare will be most likely setting me up with the CPap and hopefully this time I can use it.

If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have started NaNoWriMo on November 1st. I am struggling with the story and with Microsoft’s Word. My computer is so old and the memory is full so getting anything to run is difficult. Hard to get word counts if you spent most of the time rebooting and trying to get the program to run. Plus part of me just doesn’t know what to write or even know if it wants to write.

My blog has been kind of abandoned all these months and now that I have gotten so involved with youtube I have even less time for it. I do videos and do live streaming for sprints for writing. I have gotten over my fear of the camera and there is a link to my channel in the signature below if you want to check it out. I lost a lot of subscribers when I was in the hospital so working towards my first goal of 100 subscribers again. I only have 8 to go at the moment. 100 is the first goal on (UPDATE: I now have 108 subscibers and today I did the semi-mandatory “Ask Me Anything” question and answer session on a live stream. The recording is available if anyone wants to check it out.)

I lost a lot of the prompts I was doing. Some for sad reasons and some I don’t know what happened. So I am looking for new ones to keep me writing. I have found at least one new one so far and then there are some that I occasionally check out and don’t get an idea to write so I skip it that week and/or day.

My daughter took me out for dinner last weekend for my belated birthday. It was a strange set up with the social distancing and the masks. I don’t believe I mentioned this last week. Thought who knows. It isn’t in the one I copied over so I assume I didn’t mention it. I like my posts to be the same every week so I like to copy/paste the last one in and fix what I have to.

I got home from the sleep study a few hours ago and I am still awake so the machine and mask must have done their job. I may nap later, or I might not. Depends on how I feel.

I am trying to get a new aide. The one I have can’t come until night time and since I need help bathing and dressing she isn’t much help besides she just doesn’t get the bathing part. It is embarrassing enough without having to keep spelling it out to her. English is not her first language so communicating is hard.

Be safe everyone,
