One busy day

I'm so looking forward to moving into our new house for many, many reasons, but right now I'm most looking forward to living with central air conditioning. We don't have it; all we have is a portable unit in the bedroom. It was super-warm and very humid last night and we didn't turn the AC on until very late so it was much too hot for sleeping. Neither of us slept well and I had to be up early as well for my pulmonary function tests.

It turns out that there were five tests they did, all of them measuring my lung volume on inhale and exhale while breathing into a tube thingy. We finished the tests in about fifteen minutes which I gather is fast. They could have repeated the tests, I guess, but apparently my results looked fairly normal to the technician and the student.

When I finished the tests I drove to meet my friend in Milton. I loved meeting her, and I'm so happy that I decided to drive to see her. She is as wonderful in person as online - she's funny and smart and interesting and fun to talk to - and it turns out that we have quite a lot in common. Afterwards, she showed me pictures of her trip to Iceland. I'm so jealous that she went! It's a stark, beautiful country and it sounds like my kind of place. I'd love to go there.

I got home around 1:30pm, had a bath, and slept until Ian got home at 7:30pm. I sleep so much better during the day than at night but I'm so tired that I think I'll be able to sleep soundly tonight. Tomorrow I've got nothing to do and I plan to be lazy the whole day.
