Around OakMeadows

This is a Bandit on JMM's lap. You can tell what a hard life he has! 

We bit the bullet and traded in the 2004 Honda Odyssey with 185,000 miles on it for a brand new 2016 Honda Odyssey. I must say it is wonderful! There have been many technological improvements in the last 12 years. I love the screen that shows what is is behind you when you are backing up. Lots of other bells and whistles that we are learning to use. One funny thing is that this van has no key; you start it by putting your foot on the brake and pushing the start button. Fine, but every time we stop and turn the vehicle off, we reach to take the key out of the ignition only to realize there is no key to take out.  We went to Adaptive Driving Access and made arrangements for my lift to be installed.  

Tonight I am doing a home sleep study. When I had my annual physical a few weeks ago, my doc wanted me to do a sleep study because of my ongoing sleep problems.  I flat refused to do the sleep lab test but he said there was now a home sleep study that I could do. So this morning I picked up the equipment which is really just a chest monitor and a nasal cannula. It is tiny and battery operated and I think it will be simple to use and allow me to get some sleep. We shall see. I am very doubtful about this making any improvement in my sleep though.

Congrats on your new vehicle. I wish you luck on your home sleep study! I wish I could find a way to knock myself out on some sleepless nights. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

How do you secure the car without a key?

I wish my husband would do a sleep test. He sleeps all night,wakes up tired and needs to drink coffee all the time to stay awake. I have to wear headphones to endfure the snoring. He's pretty stubborn.

Enfure. You see what interrupted sleep does to my spelling!

Good luck on the sleep.. I hope the test results will help to provide a solution. I go in spurts.... Sometimes I can hardly sleep at all, but just when I despair, I'll get a few good nights. And I seem to be able to function regardless ( not that I have to do much functioning actually 😀). And congrats on the new car. It sounds wonderful.
