So, I realized that I have recently completed six months of using the CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. Some suggested that I would be full of energy and bouncing up after using it. Not so much that. Getting used to wearing the mask while sleeping took a long time. The first couple of weeks were obnoxious, everytime I rolled over it would wake me up.

Fortunately sleeping dale can still learn, and I've learned to sleep through the night with the thing strapped to my face. A couple weeks ago, I started waking up before my alarm clock went off. Don't know that this is a permanant change, but I am much more awake in the mornings, and don't desperately need a dose of caffiene to get myself functional in the mornings. I still have my cup of tea each morning, but it is more of a habit than a craving lately.

This is a good trend. Also, fell off the diet wagon and my A1c shot back up, and my weight loss stopped over the winter. Climbed back on the diet wagon and got the A1c back under control and back close to the acceptable but still high range. I think I've started losing weight again, and my belt may be needing another hole punched in it soon.

House repair proceeds. Damage all removed, framing is complete, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC rough work completed and passed inspection. Insulation this week, waiting for two more windows to be installed that were ordered wrong and had to be redone. Construction loan still pending, and the mortgage banker isn't returning phone calls. Hopefully she is just on vacation or something.
