Sunday May 16th, 2010 - Allergies

I'm not fully convinced my sinus yuck is allergies or a spring cold. I've had a heck of a time keeping my nasal passages open. I've had to Actifed and Afrin just to breath. And, to top it all off, I have to sleep with a CPAP (forced air nose mask for sleep apnea) which means I have to have clear nasal passages. For the last week I've gotten up in the middle of the night because I couldn't breath. It takes me about 30 minutes before I'm good for more sleep.

On top of bad sleep and the vertiginous effects of Actifed, I was physically unable to workout. This week I'll get back to the "intensity" workout. I did manage to finish the bathroom ceiling project. It looks great, but it sure did take some serious work. This coming week I should be able to paint my mom something similar to "Tulipes." While we took her out for a birthday dinner last night, we are still going to have a party leading to a huge surprise party in Central City, Colorado. It's an old mining town that has converted to a gambling casino district. They still mine up there, but not for gold; they mine your pockets, but she loves slot machines so we'll make an overnight party out of it. I don't think she reads my blog so it will still be a surprise. My in-laws should arrive by dinner Monday. My younger sister's birthday is Wednesday and Jeff's graduation and BBQ is Friday, so I'm not going to get much me time.

Maybe I'll just head up to the gym when it gets to hectic down here.
