First, car related post.

I emailed Mazda about why in the hell it’s taking so long to get a replacement seat cover for my car. They had approved a new seat cover via warranty immediately, but the part was on a mysterious back order. After a few weeks, I sent the email and got a phone call shortly thereafter. Mazda USA contacted Mazda Japan (where the seat cover is coming from) and got it put in priority shipping straight to my preferred dealership. Should have the car good as new in a couple weeks. In the meantime, the current degradation of the seat cover hasn’t gotten any worse, so that’s good. And the Mazda customer service lady was very nice.

And, I got the results of my sleep study. I have Severe Obstructive Sleep Apnea. I ended up doing a home based study (a weird lap belt thing and nose plugs I wore to bed). That showed I quit breathing an average of 41 times an hour! Wow. No wonder I wake up everyday with an excruciating headache and I am groggy/tired all the time. I have to get a CPAP machine, which I’m kind of excited about. I’ll feel like a new man once I wake up and actually got a good night’s sleep the night before!

Have a picture of my 6 doing some water beading for your time:
