A-fib, about 3:30am, laying on right side. Took about 45 minutes to one hour to calm. Fell asleep in recliner and woke up about 5:30 and went back to bed.

As [livejournal.com profile] abqdan mentions, we're both a bit overwhelmed by this remodel, but it will all be over in just a couple of months. Knock on wood.

I took 1/2 day off from work today (it IS a national Gay holiday, after all, according to my boss!) so Danny and I could continue our foray into shopping for biggish ticket items.

At Lowe's we got the quote together for the Kraftmaid vanities from our dance acquaintance John, who is a kitchen/bath designer. We also picked up 3 sinks, 3 lovely brushed nickle faucets, and a new toilet. We know how to live, we do!

Since the reason I took that half day off was so we could visit tiles stores (many of which seem to be open only Monday through Friday, 9 to 5), we traveled up north of town to Tile and Stone Row and were met with a dizzying array of types of tiles for the shower and bath. We had already chosen the look we wanted, but Lowes didn't have some of the parts for the tile we wanted. We went to Interceramic, Dal-Tile just on the edge of town, then A World of Tiles on Menaul. We've changed what we wanted from our original thoughts, but haven't really made a decision yet. Luckily we won't be ready for tile installation for several weeks at the least.

Tonight we're going to lay low and avoid the kiddies. We're taking our neighbor to the airport, then another trip to Lowes, then we have the weekend to ourselves!

Danny and I are both feeling mildly irritable lately, but I'm sure it'll pass. Probably just the come-down from the Thanksgiving holiday trip. We travel well together.

This coming Saturday and Sunday are more non-weekends for us, since I'm glutted with yardwork coming up on Saturday, then meetings for most of Sunday. Sigh.

The past two nights I've gone to bed at 10pm, actually BEFORE Danny, which is an oddity in itself. I've been totally drained...hope this isn't the beginnings of the crud that seems to be going around.

Had another minor a-fib episode on Thanksgiving night, which was a surprise since they only happened every five or six years apart before. Woke bolt upright at 12:30am with the racing, sloshy heart. Turning on the light in the motel woke Danny, so he was up like a shot, too. This time, I took two aspirins and one Diltiazin and opted not to go to the ER for this one.

Within about 90 minutes, my heartrate had dropped from the 120s to the 70s, so I was able to fade off to sleep, although I still had the a-fib. Woke somewhat groggy the next morning, but the a-fib was gone. Hooray! It was probably the combination of the meals during the day and the several drinks later that evening. Silly me should know better.

Plowed through an entertaining Robert Parker novel in two sittings. It's always nice to read for pleasure. Started on another Patricia Cornwall book, "The Last Precinct." I had actually read her latest one a few months ago, so I'm backtracking to get some of the Scarpetta history.
