Almost didn't make it to the UPS store today

So, when I got up this morning...the plan was to fully wake up and go down to the UPS store hopefully before it gets too hot.

But, I started in on various things for random reasons.... I was filling out some paperwork for an appointment I have on Monday. And, while I was doing that, I thought that now might be a good time to finally move my HP Photosmart 8450xi from by TARDIS to the new All-In-One Cart I had gotten from Staples. I had worked out yesterday where it was going to sit....but first I moved the TR5M-BP to a spot on the cart. Decided to go with the bottom shelf. Not sure why, but I moved it live. And, then I went to move my printer. After that was done, it occurred to me there was a CD that I wanted to burn, so I went to get a CD-R...and noticed that the DVD+R cakebox didn't have any labeling on it, and occurred that once I open the CD-R cakebox...it would also have no label. The discs don't have any marking on the fronts...though the color of the dye on the data side would be one way to tell them apart. But, I had just bought a Brother P-Touch PT-1090 Label Maker, so it was time to open it up and use it.

Noticed a tear strip on the pack, so it would be easy to open...I took it to the bedroom to work on it.

I had the bed stripped for laundry (mainly because I had gotten years of disgusting dust all over it from doing ReplayTV surgery on it.) When, I thought that while I have it this far apart, I should finally replace the bedframe. Old bedframe is over 25 years old....had noticed when I moved the bed a couple years ago that one of the rollers on the frame was broken....I had made a note that should I find a new bedframe via Amazon Prime. And, some time ago I did....a year ago, on July 31, 2010.

A pretty nice frame...and I made the switch and got all that done. Noticed that the Select Comfort controller was only showing a few segments....missing so much that its useless. Wonder how I'm going to get it to the right pressure tonight? It had been losing segments for a while...but I guess I intended to look for doing something about it...but don't know why I put if off so long. I suppose deep down, I had reached my limit on getting Select Comfort to get it right.

But, I had worked up a sweat fiddling with the bed base....I had taken the cover off to get it to fit the new frame, and the plates had shifted. And, it took some work to get them flush again. So, I went off to shower, and then thought I should see about heading out...but I got laundry going, so I should get to a suitable spot first. So, what will I do next?

Stage 1 of the Bedroom Project

Here's a picture of the little corner where I go to sleep each night is looking like now....

My Bed

Don't know if I'll feel like snapping any other parts....

The Bedroom Project

This is a project that I've been thinking of tackling for some time. The headboard piece was acquired back in April, and had been sitting in the hallway waiting for the day that I would clear the clutter in my bedroom and set it up. Well, I did that yesterday as Stage 1.

Stage 2 will be to clear the clutter (some existing, some transfered) on the other side of the bedroom now and assemble the new dresser that I received on Friday (ala Amazon Prime). I plan to tackle that tomorrow.

These sketches are not to scale or anything....

So old Dresser in top left, PowerSource 400 is UUU, so CPAP/Humidifier is in that night stand, clock radio on the other one. AP & F are also on the PowerSource 400. And there is boxes and piles of other stuff left over from when I moved in in the open area. But, had made a lot of progress to clear it during the spring cleaning stage of things....

First night with CPAP

Well, I survived. I got home late, I then called my mom and talked for a while, and then I finally started getting ready for bed.

There was a struggle trying to get comfortable and putting on the mask and such in the dark. And, it seemed like I was getting up to use the bathroom more in the first hour than I had done before. Though there have been nights before where I seem to be going every 5 minutes for the first part of the night.

Once I felt the mask was on and I had the machine going. On one hand the lack of backlight on the LCD made it hard to see how it was set, but it didn't really matter...because I could feel whether ramp was selected or not. Then it was that the blue lights of the buttons was really bright. Maybe I'll buy a night stand for the other side of the bed, and see if that works.

I soon seemed to figure out how to swallow with the mask on, and not inflate my ears. Hopefully the initial discomfort of the mask will fade once the heated humidifier shows up. It was bothersome with the cold dry air blowing on the edge of my nostrils.

Now that I'm not all wired up, I decided to try sleeping on my stomach. I often start this way (in the winter time) and then roll over to my back for the rest of the night. It was a problem finding a position on the pillow where the mask didn't shift to leak a lot. I found myself holding the mask in position with one hand as I laid this way. Eventually, I gave up and tried to find a comfortable position laying on my back.

During this part I felt the pressure of my Sleep Number bed was off, but I found that control wand to be dark and non-responsive. I tried unplugging it a few times, the pump clicked a few times when plugged back in...but the wand remained dead. >:XX It is the one annoying part of my Select Comfort bed....this time its only like 3 months old, and it hasn't fallen off the bed or anything yet. Wonder what I'm going to do now.

Then somewhere during all this I went to sleep. And, I slept until my alarm went off. It was strange, because I didn't feel like a waking dream....but then I remembered that I had a mask on my face. It didn't seem all that strange breathing wise.

I don't feel any more awake then I normally do. But, I didn't stay in bed snoozing as much as I normally do....though that could be the need to rip the mask off once the alarm switches to the beeping. And, then I didn't feel the desire to switch it back to radio and continue snoozing. Will need to work out how cleaning the mask every morning will best fit into my morning routine now.

Perhaps tonight, I'll try the cradle cushion....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
