I'm a Great Northwesterner that is now loving life in the Midwest. I am a world class napper. I'm very bossy. I clearly love a good glass of Scotch. I wear aprons every chance I get.

My Aunt Connie is the newest member of the CPAP club. I know a lot of people who use a CPAP machine when they sleep - and tonight is Connie's first night with her machine. I really hope it goes well - and that she won't suffocate!!

When it comes to sleeping - I am a pro. But, I am a sleep mask kind of gal. Right now I use one from Brookstone, that has built in speakers and a variety of soothing sounds to help you fall asleep. It also has a jack so you could listen to music or something just in your sleep mask and not disturb anyone else. I really like the mask - but it can't last forever. In preparation for the day that it dies, I've visited DreamEssentials.com and think I've found a good replacement:

The only thing is - I really like the pressure on my eyes - and as you can see this one makes room for your eyeballs. I'd have to test it for a while. Someday. I'll let you know what I think.

I'll trade ya. You can gave the blasted CPAP and I will take the cute eye coverlet.

Connie... Sorry to hear about the CPAP. I have used one for 8 years. Let me say right now.. you get used to it. Be sure they give you one with a water bottle. If they didn't go back and GET ONE. You'll need it. Just keep trying. I may take a while to get used to it and not get tangled. Believe me.. you won't feel sexy but you can take care of THAT before you put it on. Also be sure to replace your mask every 3 months. See what your insurance covers. After 3 months they break down and become uncomfortable and leak air. If I think of anything else I will tell Chanel.
