Back to work.
It’s always hard to go back after time off. Especially here.
Last few weeks I’ve been waking up at about 3:30. figured it was just because I go to bed at 9. Last night I stayed up till 11 and still woke up at 3:30. I heard my neighbor come home right after that. I wonder if they’ve been coming home and waking me up every night. New neighbors are moving in next to me on the other side. I anticipate trouble there. I think I know who they are. . . drunks.
I have a wonderful outlook on life today, don’t I?
My Dad is not doing too well, his brain is bleeding and he lost his memory. My Mom is trying to teach him “L” for Lobby and “2″ for their floor. He disappeared in the lobby and she found him on the 10th floor.
I talked to him on the phone and he sounded OK except he told me how he’s trying to learn “L” and “4″. He hesitated and seemed to know that wasn’t quite right.
His 80th birthday is in August.
Night before last, I came home from diving and took a shower. When I got out of the shower, the air in the room was intolerably cold. I ran and jumped into bed with two blankets, wondering why I was so freezing. I ended up being incredibly sick and delerious. It was a miserable night. Yesterday morning I went to the dive shop and told them I wouldn’t be diving that day. I moved my rebreather to a nice shady spot and covered it in towels. Then I came back home and went to bed and stayed there all day. Last night I was feeling a lot better and went out and got some chicken noodle soup. Then I went back to bed and this morning I feel a lot better still.
But that’s why I didn’t post yesterday.
But today, I promise to take some!
Yesterday was great! Went down 258 feet, stayed 20 minutes, back on the surface after 103 minutes. Today the plan is 300 feet, which will be the deepest I’ve ever been on my rebreather.
Yes, Jona, I am waking up at the same time I always do for work, and I’m actually leaving the house earlier than I normally do, but it’s great! (I’ll try and get some rest when I get back to work!)
This is yesterdays dive downloaded from my dive computer. Depth is on the left and time is across the bottom. The dark blue line shows my actual depth, and the light blue line shows my ceiling, which means the shallowest depth I can ascend to with out risking decompression illness. The little green rectangle at the bottom center is what I see on my handset while I’m underwater.

I feel like I’m getting a cold, so yesterday, instead of an afternoon dive, I hung out by the pool and tried to catch some preventitive sunrays.
Today will be better!
Yesterday the dive was 150 feet for 30 minutes, swam in one direction. Then up to 100 feet for 30 more minutes, still swimming in the same direction, then across the sand to a mini wall where we swam back for an hour and did our deco and had a 2 hour and 1o minute runtime. It was just a shallow warm up dive.
Plus, it was great seeing a bunch of old friends.
Today I am on the boat.
All these dives are too deep for my camera, (140 feet or 40 meters) but I will take some shots today on the boat and stuff. Maybe this afternoon I’ll do a shallower one and take some U/W pics.
