Requesting a do-over

Can we have a do-over, please?

I woke Ken up at 7:30 this morning because I was snoring. I’ve been having some weird breathing issues ever since I thought I was coming down with a cold last month—even though I can breathe fine through my nose, I’ve been mouth breathing, my breath catches on the way out at times, and I get dry mouth, meaning I have to get up several times a night to (a) drink water and (b) pee. Frack.

We went back to the thrift shop and the chair I wanted to buy was gone. We did pick up a filing cabinet for the sewing room, but the chair was the special thing. Frack.

We were running late but were ready just in time to meet up with folks to caravan to Santa Monica for Morgana’s birthday tea. Except I had it firmly in my head that it was at The Tudor House, when it was actually at The King’s Head across the street. Frack.

Found out someone had misinterpreted something I’d said and passed on misinformation as if it had been verbatim from me. Frack.

On the way back up the coast, Ken and I had a disagreement. Frack.

When we got to the bike dealer to pick up his loaner bike, they weren’t actually open until 5:30 (we got there at 5:17). They’d closed at 5, and don’t reopen until Tuesday. Ken’s supposed to fly home from Colorado Tuesday after returning the bike there. Which means he’ll now have to change his flight, which will cost money. Frack.

Also on the way, my car starting making a weird noise and smell. Still drivable, and we had to get it back to the dealer for a few other minor things next week, but this is also an added expense plus I can’t drive it to the LARA meeting in Encino tomorrow morning. Frack and double frack.

Oh, and while we’re at it? Four friends at the Styx show in Vancouver last night—the one where we had the offer of front-row tickets but turned them down because we were paying for an ailing cat instead—failed to call me during the show.

On the plus side, tea was lovely, and it’s overcast and cooler today. I suppose now I should throw caution to the wind and go down to my study and try to write…

I don't think I can help with much else other than to say it will smooth over - but - when I have snoring issues from sinuses - the mentholated Breathe-right strips work a treat. Only the mentholated mind you, are worth the annoyance of having something stuck to your nose, but it's one of the few things I've found that will work for my pernicious sinuses.

Aw, honey. I'm so sorry! But I will say - you didn't miss anything from the meeting, though we missed you, big time!

What's your schedule this week?

It's not my nose or my sinuses (believe me, I've dealt with sinuses!). It's more the back of my throat. It's not swollen or painful, it just catches. I think it has something to do with the dry mouth I've been suffering, which I suspect is a symptom of perimenopause....

I mostly feel bad because I haven't been to a meeting in months but I'm signing next month. I don't want to seem like someone who just shows up when she can promote something. :-(

Schedule this week:

Mon - cat to vet; errands

Tue - Ken leaves for CO; I get a massage

Wed - research history of neighborhood in library archives with Morgana and Lisa; pick up Ken from airport; Shire birthday dinner; finalizing BOL finances with Exchequer

Thu - Farmer's Market; otherwise free

Fri - Brian's day off so he and Ken will work on a house project while Morgana and I make curtains or something

Sat - Collegium in Long Beach

Sun - Ken leaves for Arkansas
