Somehow, I managed to get out the door to church (wearing all black because that's what I'm like, topped with my crystal chandelier earrings) with my life-saving supplies that included my bottle of water AND the cute portable fan (prezzie from church-John) with a spray feature. Just one problem: I'd filled the reservoir but no water was emerging. I figured I'd let c-J figure it out. Which he did when he arrived (priming the pump needed a man's touch, lol). If I hadn't had that fan, I would not have made it through the service. Even simply sitting in the first pew, I had difficulty breathing. I have NO idea of how the choir was able to perform (energetically!!!). There were so many touching moments I'm thrilled I'd caught live, one of them being our preacher proclaiming Shana Tovah (Happy New Year in the Jewish calendar) before the three celebrants partook of apple slices dipped in honey. Have I mentioned (often enough) how much I love my church?
I'd been worried about being assigned a cab home, but the driver was very gentle with my damaged walker. He also had his A/C on full blast, so I enjoyed my ride home. Walking up the back deck stairs was torture, as the wooden railing was scorching hot. Nope, no desire to sit outside. I was just so grateful to be home where I could cool off and drink more water. I was actually surprised to write my review rather quickly. I guess I'm becoming more versatile in that aspect. And then I was able to collapse.
I wasn't even all that hungry. I remember having some Soppressata (Italian cured sausage). And more water. There was no news on TV, just stupid football, but I had the TV on CBS (also set it to record) for the premiere of (oy) STD. Obviously, some presumably professional entities don't realize that some show names will be reduced to their acronyms. And then I fell asleep, even though I was still somewhat hot.
I'm not hot now (wow) but need to eat something (yogurt?) before taking my pills. I figure I'll stay up for a little while reading and then try for sleep again. Luckily, I don't have any obligations Monday. I'll watch the first hour of ::snickers:: STD at some point. TTFN.
