PM Pills and The Aerobed

Had a nice evening. After work, I hopped on my bike and rode to the grocery store to get some items for dinner. I bought some salmon and got enough to have two meals. While I was at the store, this siren was blaring and it was very annoying. Apparently one of the guys hit the sprinkler system so it triggered the alarm. Hard to think when you have an alarm blaring in your ear. The fire dept. did not show up until 20 mins. later. After dinner I hopped on my bike again and rode around the neighborhood for a mile or so. It was cool but pleasant.

I have some pills I need to take in the evening and I have been having a hard time remembering.  I have my routine in the morning down. I call it poke and pill. I do an insulin shot and then take my assorted meds/supplements within an hour or so of waking up. The PM pills are hard for me to remember. Maybe I should take them when I eat my dinner or right after... I did write myself a note on my whiteboard so we will see if that helps.
I bought an Aerobed over the weekend. I have wanted one for a long time but they are spendy so I held off. It is actually too low for Dave to sleep on so that did not work. Even the doubly thick one is only 22" so it would be hard to maneuver. The one I got was 14" I did not have an opportunity to test it out until last night. Oh my word, it fills up in like 60 seconds and stops automatically. There is also a wand that allows you to increase or decrease air as needed. As far as the deflation, it is pretty fast as well. Folding it up was not difficult and putting it in the storage bag was not hard either. It is a little heavy but the storage bag has a big strap to help carry it. It will come in handy for sure. I don't want anyone to sleep on the new couch so if I do have a houseguest, this is where they will be sleeping although after Dave's departure, I think it will be awhile before I have any houseguests, LOL! Until next time...

P.S. See you at lunch time Kathy!

  1. I have a hard time remembering my evening pills as well. I finally set an alarm on my cell phone that goes off at 9 every night. I'm almost always home at 9 (i have small kids) so that means I'm right there. It goes off, i go take my pills. Maybe you could do soemthing like that, with your phone or just a regular alarm clock. Good luck!


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
