Midweek Miscellany

Last week I volunteered to chaperone Rosie’s 3rd grade field trip. We went on a hike in Provo Canyon and to the BYU Bean Life Sciences Museum. I wish that I’d had my good camera, but I snapped this pic on my Blackberry at Bridal Veil Falls. I had forgotten how beautiful the canyons are here in Utah. I live practically at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon and need to take advantage of the early autumn beauty.

This morning I dropped Taylor off at the airport. We had to wake up at 4:30 am to get him to the airport on time, so I feel like a zombie today. It was so nice to have him here for five whole days. Sunday evening we had a birthday get-together in Lehi with friends and family. We caught (500) Days of Summer on his birthday, and I think it’s one of my favorites of 2009. We also watched a few other random movies courtesy of the local library. It was very much-needed spouse time.

I’ve been experimenting with my banana bread recipe lately. Some batches have turned out awesome, some have been mediocre. It’s definitely better with butterscotch chips than chocolate chips. I’ve been using cocoa powder in some, substituting different pudding flavors, adding this and that. Once I think I’ve got the revised recipe perfected, I’ll post it.

Today I had an appointment with my sleep specialist in SLC. Dr. Farney is the first sleep specialist I ever met with, and the best out of the 4 that I’ve worked with. I got him caught up on the last five years of my health and sleep history and discussed details of my finally successful CPAP therapy. I told him how my ongoing complaint continues to be excessive daytime sleepiness, regardless of how many hours of sleep I get at night. I’m going to give Nuvigil a try, if only because the website makes me laugh. He also suggested I follow up with another doctor about some pesky symptoms that may point to a condition I’m pretty sure I have (which consequently exacerbates sleep apnea). Good thing I’ve got great insurance for the rest of the year.

I found my Ipod that had been missing for three weeks. I had searched high and low, through every room of my house and the car. Where did I find it? In the purse pocket that I usually stash it…folded between a piece of paper. Just my luck.
