My one year hosehead anniversary
One year ago today, I became a hosehead. I was diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and require a CPAP machine to keep my airway open while I sleep thereby making sure oxygen gets to my brain and body.
It was a hard first couple of weeks until I got used to everything and learned how to adjust all the equipment. I couldn't have done it without the folks over at the CPAP Talk forum. They taught me everything I know and are infinitely patient with new people.
I've been continuing in my spring cleaning frenzy; yesterday and today I tackled our family room. Thankfully this urge to clean everything (and I do mean everything) only comes once or twice a year.
I am so looking forward to the stitching retreat I'm going on this coming weekend - three days of nothing but stitching! I plan to stitch on the never ending border on my BAP and hope to get it finished (the border, not the BAP). It may be the only stitching I am able to do this week due to my cleaning frenzy.
Howdy! I'm a Native Texan living in Texas with my dear husband (DH) of 25+ years. We share our home with Annie, a rescued Jack Russell terrier. I'm past the half-century mark. My main hobby is cross-stitching. My other hobbies include reading, and finishing and/or staining and/or painting anything DH makes out of wood and brings into the house. I occasionally sew when needed. We live in the country in an old hunting cabin that we're renovating ourselves. We're card-carrying tightwads.
