Its 5PM Friday and I don't know where my fatigue is!
Hi everyone,

Well here it is 10 nights on CPAP and its Friday night at 5:30 PM. Now normally - the end of the week - I am fighting to stay awake. Go out on a Friday night? Only if I can go directly from work because once I got home all bets were off.

But here it is - 5:30 and I am twiddling my thumbs! Its a miracle!!!

Happy Weekend everyone!

You know you're getting old when you're given 2 options for Friday night and you pick the one that gets you home the earliest.

Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.

Hi Susan!

Thank you! It was quite an odd feeling - literally twiddling my thumbs! Of course I could have worked on getting my Family room put together after tearing it apart unpacking and packing Christmas decorations but nah ~ lol
