I went all day yesterday without wearing that stupid oxygen nose hose. (!) I washed two loads of wash, hung up the clothes that needed to be hung, baked three potatoes, and puttered up and down the house all day, and my O2sats stayed above 90%. That, in itself, is pretty durn epic. It was also a tall, cool drink of freedom. I slept with oxygen on, but took it off when I got up this morning and turned off the oxygen concentrator machine. That was pretty epic as well. First time since 30 May that it’s been off. It’s already 2°F cooler in my office without the heat that durn concentrator puts out. I will turn it back on tonight when I go to bed and will sleep with the oxygen on tonight and for the next couple of nights, I think.
The second epic thing that happened today is that I got the bare bones plonger* that came with my Vizio flat screen TV and played around with it, downloaded the Vizio SmartController app to my smart phone, and was able to control the TV from my smart phone, which gives me the ability to watch YouTube videos on my TV from the channels I subscribe to on YouTube. I got to watch Jesse and Alyssa put SIP panels up on the north gable of their house, and Nick, Esther, kids and friends set up the steel posts for Nick’s workshop on a 57″ flat screen TV! This was indeed epic. I also ordered a more complicated Vizio plonger (that’ll be $10.59, thank you very much) (sale price!) that hopefully has a right arrow key on it. I’ve had the TV since 2016, but just never got around to playing with it to see what else I could do with it, mostly due to roundtoit availability and allocation issues . . . .
This morning, I finished folding up and putting away all the unmentionables from the load of clothes I did yesterday, so that’s all done. I’ve been sipping on white chai all day, I had half a baked potato loaded with cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, green onions and sprinkle cheese for supper, and had some cottage cheese topped with crushed pineapple for afters. It’s 8:30 p.m. now. Once it’s after 10 p..m., I’ll cook a pot of elbow macaroni and make a Wolf Brand Chili casserole. I haven’t checked the crisper in the refrigerator, but hopefully, I still have at least one white onion that hasn’t decided to sprout. Otherwise, I’ll have to sacrifice the rest of my green onions to the casserole.
I just checked my YouTube channel, and one of my subscription channels has a new video up. I think I’ll get my phone and go watch it on my TV . . .
*plonger – what people in my family call TV remote controls. Long story.
One thought on “An Epic Sunday”
“Plonger” is a good word for that gizmo. On the other hand, it makes me think of this bit of tv history. There are some things in this world that the young’uns never will understand — and this is one of them.
