Trick or Treat

We had a nice time watching the kids trick or treating over Tammy and Dan's house.  It was nice, but the best part was the squash soup that Anna cooked.  It was real delicious.  She also cooked chili, but I didn't have any because we ate dinner already. 






















Anna

Yesterday night was the homecoming dance for Central Regional high school.  Our Anna had a great time and needless to say, she looked absolutely beautiful!  So proud of her.

Cape May Zoo

Today I went to the Cape May Zoo on this Thursday's bus trip.  None of my neighbors wanted to go, but I was looking forward to this trip and I am glad I went.  The weather was close to perfect, but a little sun would have helped. However, I was just happy that it didn't rain and that it it was warm.

Sleep Apnea

Who would have thought that I have to get a Cpap!  I received a 'At home sleep study test kit".
A home sleep test (HST) is a sleep study tool that is used for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Most HST devices are portable – about the size of a telephone handset.
They usually measure the following biologic parameters:
Nasal and Oral Airflow – by thin wire that is taped by the nose and mouth – some sensors look like an oxygen cannula.
Respiratory Effort – by elastic belt bands that are placed across the chest and abdomen.
Oxymeter Finger Probe – a small clip-like device that attaches to the finger tip and emits a red light that assists in the evaluation of oxygen levels in the blood while sleeping.
Let me tell you, with this thing on you, you really don't get the best sleep.  Anyway, it did turn out that I have sleep apnea and was told that I have to do an overnight sleep study with the Cpap.
I had to drive to the Deborah Sleep Center.  The room I stayed in was like a hotel room with walk-in closet and it's own bathroom with shower.
Once I was in my PJs the technician came a put all kinds of wires on my head, face, and even the legs.  The where attached to the wall and this way he could monitor from his office how everything went.  In Bed, I also had to wear the Cpap mask.  That wasn't really too bad, but the mattress and the pillows where horrible!  Needless to say, I really didn't get more than about 5 hours sleep with a bathroom trip in between.  For that I had to call the technician to 'un-hook' me.
Around 5:28am I woke up on my own and not even 2 seconds later, the technician came in and said: "I saw that you are awake."  With that he took off all my wires, I got dressed and left.  I was home while it was still dark outside, around 6:30am.
Oh, in case anyone is wondering.....no breakfast, not even coffee.  Needless to say that I stopped at the next WaWa right after I left Deborah.

The kitchen

What can I say.....daughter asked what color will your kitchen be?  My answer was, a beige, or a type of eggshell.  So she says...go for some color, like a sage or so.
My front room is sage.  I didn't want the same color, but maybe something similar.  So off to Home Depot to pick up the paint.  I looked at the paper samples and one greenish color looked nice.  So, that is what we picked.
The first stroke went on the wall after the ceiling was done in white.  WOW..... it sure looked different than I expected.  No way does it resemble sage or even anything close to it.
OK...so I told myself to calm down and wait until it's done.
Once the curtains were up and everything else was in its place, it actually looked nice.  It's an aqua color....kind of the color that one would paint a kitchen in Bermuda, or any of the tropical islands.

Atlantic City

Today was absolutely gorgeous!  The Thursday senior trip this week went to Atlantic city.  It was a 100% perfect day!  I walked almost the whole boardwalk and yes...I can feel it tonight.  It was totally worth it though.  I even dropped some money and lost $4.  Yes, that's right....just four and that is because I hate losing money.
I went for a slice of pizza and then it was time to go back to the bus.
