Sometimes I Hate Michigan, and Biker Buddy gets all defensive as if I hate him. I don't. I wouldn't be here if I did. But on the other hand, I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him, so maybe it is his fault.
The latest thing is Columbus Day. At home in NY, we always got Columbus Day off and it was an annual trip to Maine to visit my brother, ever year, year after year, a tradition. Here, no holiday, no trip, nothing. :-(
He doesn't care and doesn't understand. After all, it's not his traditions that are being lost, along with contact with family and friends. His family is here.
Two good things about Michigan: no tolls on the highways (HATE the NY THRUWAY!) and the taxes are better. NY has the second worst state and local taxes in the nation, only DC is worse. Michigan is #24.

I had a pretty bad night last night. I was awake a great deal. A LOT! (At least I didn’t get up.) Worse yet, I had an apnea event! VERY SCARY and upsetting! AND the CPAP was ON and running, which was even more scary and upsetting. I think my fear of apnea events (which could kill me, and which deprive me of oxygen and can kill brain cells and make me stupid) may affect my insomnia (though I still think food sensitivity is the primary cause of the insomnia. Lack of sleep makes me stupid, too! I also wonder if the WINE I had last night may have affected the sleep apnea event. (?) (By relaxing the muscles in the tongue and throat. That’s why I am not supposed to drink at night.)
