This and That

January 14th, 2015 at 02:37 pm

The board meeting yesterday was actually very nice and non-confrontational. Nothing is actually resolved, but there will be plenty of time to work out the issues later, in more private conversations.

I not only got a free lunch, but a free dinner, as there was a happy hour afterwards, and I made the wine and appetizers my dinner. But today I forgot to bring any food, so I ended up buying breakfast for $4 and will have to buy lunch as well.

I had a really awful night, with pain in my legs (too much walking?) and exceptional dryness in the air. I got up to check the humidifier and found that it had leaked all over without doing any misting. It was cheap and it's going in the dumpster. But that clarifies what I need to buy. A really good humidifier -- maybe even one that will double as a dehumidifier in the summer. I think I will also buy one of those handheld misters that you place over your nose and mouth when you are especially dry. I also think I might get a "tiger tail" - sort of a mini foam roller -- which would help alleviate my lower body pain. I'll do some online shopping/looking today.

I drove this morning, because it is in the single digits again, and my hair was still damp when it was time to leave. I had to chip a lot of ice off the car and never got the windshield wipers working. After I got to work, and the car was a lot warmer, I chipped off more hunks of ice around the wipers and I think they will be okay. I was lucky I didn't have to use them on the way in.

Anyway, I'll need to get gas again on the way back, as I don't like the tank to be more than half-empty when the temperatures are low.

    We have a humidifier on our furnace, but it is still really dry right now. My parents live in an apartment and boil a pot of water than turn it to simmer for several hours during the day to add humidity to the air. Just a thought!

    CCF, I've done that, but it seems to only help out in the kitchen. I really need humidity in my bedroom. Maybe I'll look for a big crockpot without a lid!

    I'm sorry about the pain in your legs. I get pains in my thighs sometimes that intterrupt my sleep - tingling freezing type sensations. Not much fun.
