oh crap, I'm getting a cpap.

I can't remember if I mentioned this or not here, but a while back I went and had 2 sleep studies done. It's where you get electrodes stuck on your head and all around, have a big fat elastic waistband put around your middle, then you get to sleep while someone watches you via a camera in another room. Very relaxing! I wasn't having any problems sleeping (or so I thought) but my DH thought I had sleep apnea so my doctor recommended having the tests done.

Turns out, I need a CPAP machine. Oh lucky me. So apparently I have been not breathing (dying??) 20 times per hour every time I sleep. I get up fine and I am ready to hit the yardsales or go to Walgreens everyday. My CPAP gets delivered tomorrow. So from then on, I will be breathing thru the entire night. What a concept. So I can just imagine, if I start getting up even MORE relaxed and full of energy every day, how much more efficient I will be at shopping!
