Woke up Monday feeling terrible from the previous night's festivities, but as that got better throughout the day, I realized I was also getting a cold. Yesterday I was wide awake at 2am, so I checked my work email on my phone, saw I had no obligations, and turned my 4am alarm off. It took a long time to fall back asleep, but eventually I did, and was in bed for almost 12 hours total. Last night was a little better, and I slept pretty well through to the 4am alarm, checked email, and went back to sleep for another 90 minutes. We have nice plans this weekend and I hope I'm all the way better by then.

One of my presents this year was a nice memory foam mattress pad, and it's been very nice to sleep on. Did I already mention it? I've had it for a while because I slept in a very bad position a couple of weeks ago. That led to me ordering one for myself, learning Garrett got me one which I was allowed to open early, and returning the one I ordered.

He also ordered new Dish Network equipment for the whole house and a 55-inch 4k TV for the lounge. The new stand we ordered for it isn't here yet, but he found a board in the garage and balanced it on our old one for now. It's pretty amazing! We looked at a little bit of an episode of The Crown, which we already finished, and really wished we had the new TV while we watched before. Everything looks so much better.

Well, not everything. Yesterday I watched Interview with the Vampire on DVD and it was obviously not made for tv with so many pixels.

Sam and Steve's annual exam is today. That's always delightful. Hopefully we still have some Feliway wipes, I forgot to check.

I haven't left the house in a while. Here's a neat time lapse of the frost melting in the back yard a few days ago.
