Post 3976 - Monday Night Stuff

Hi. Another short post.

I get up early on Tuesday morning to do some research on a couple of cases. To finish the research I began on a case last week, pretty much. I am booked for three hours, but I can't imagine it will take that long. 

I spent a few hours this afternoon working on a draft of my next cold case article for Frank. I wrote too many words. There is a bit too much meandering, so I have to tighten the piece, probably Tuesday night. Then I will send it off to my editor and proceed to write the article for the case I will be researching on Tuesday. I want to get that done... I guess on  Wednesday. After that, I have a third article to write, about yet another cold case. 

I am hoping that I will have all three articles in to my editor by the end of the week. 

I also pitched a couple of other articles to my editor. He has agreed to my pitches, and I will be researching those this week as well. I am hoping that I will get lucky and find the information I seek. Time will tell.

Nice to have a purpose in life, eh?

I see where the CBC today did an article about the 1906 Stetka murders in Dominion, Cape Breton. I did that story a year ago now, and much of what I covered then is covered there. I should tell them the next time I do an obscure cold case so they can turn around and plunder my work.

My AHI's were a little high Sunday night, 10.3 or so. I was in the three's for several days, so it was disappointing to say the least. I don't know what to do to improve. It just goes from night to night, and week to week. I can tell you that with a number of 10, I have felt a little more logy today, a lassitude I do not have when the numbers are three or four. Of course, before I began to use a CPAP machine, I had numbers of over 40, which is a number I can no longer fathom or contemplate. It is no wonder why I kept dozing off at work, or would often fall asleep while watching tv, at 7:30 at night., or why I had to take long naps on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. Since I began using a CPAP machine, I have required far fewer of these extra naps, and seldom doze off at inappropriate times. The machine may have saved my life.

Speaking of AHI's, I think I will turn in and see what kind of numbers I can get tonight. Have to get up early and head off to do my work.

See you tomorrow.
