new decor

i love my home nicely decorated...but i got a little "forced" decor this last week.
it's dog ugly...u-g-l-y!!!

the only thing worse than the uber ugliness of the machine itself, is how NOT HOT i look in this dumb mask.

yes, i snore.
fine. i quit breathing for 5 or more seconds over 33 times an hour.
sure, i could have stroke.

but seriously? you don't have anything a little more...girlie? or a little less darth vader-esque...or scuba steve-ish?!

and to boot, apparently, i have a dumb allergic reaction to the latex on the mask...so now, there's nasty puss filled hives all over my nose and cheeks.

that just makes it so much sweeter...and heaven knows, i'm a super scuba steve impersonator. what do you think?
i'm thinking of lace and finding a bedazzler...maybe that will help? any ideas?

OH.MY.GOSH! YOWZA! That is impressive :0)
HOLY COW! Seriously, HOLY COW!
That is just somethin', isn't it?

I say just work it like you're already doing :)

I know you're not loving this but you're hysterical! Your eyes peeking out from the mask say it all!

And this is timely, I just happened to catch a scene from Malcolm in the Middle where the parents are forced to go into their fumigated house with masks on just so they could have alone time, away from their kids in the trailer. The music was gently playing and they looked at eachother through their masks with those come hither eyes. Ok sorry....... (I do hope your condition improves and you won't always have to wear it)

Wow that is purty! I hope that it is helping and that you are feeling rested because of your new scuba steve mask. :) On the bright side you only have to wear it at bed time:) Right? LOL

Kimmy said...

LOL..Bu-Mer! My MIL has to wear one of those also. Before, I never heard of this "none breathing while sleeping" issue but now that I've heard of it, I'm hearing more and more people suffer from it.
I agree though, they need to make it girlier looking!! lol

Meredith said...

Oh my! Do they have any other options other than latex?? Maybe, in all your craftiness, you could cover the blue band that goes around your head in a super cute fabric... just think of how you can accessorize!

Michelle said...

Holy cow, do you have to sleep with that mask on? That is kind of crazy, but I guess if it keeps you breathing it is worth it. :)

I think it does need some bling though.


I laughed at your comment about the seagulls knees looking like frogs faces. It does!!!!

Stopping by from SITS to say hello! I am a mom of 3 girls. I am sure you have a house full of drama, just like we do. :-)

I'm not laughing AT you, totally laughing WITH you. well, maybe a little at you! I can sympathize for you, though, My sweet little son had such severe apnea he stopped breathing 25 times an hour, and poor little guy was only one. I didn't sleep until he was healed! Thank goodness he was able to have surgery. If I had to see him like that every night, he would probably get a complex over me laughing at him!
Here from SITS btw

Oh man you are having some fun times. But I gotta think that breathing and living is worth the lovely looking mask.

You are officially my hero! I can not believe you had the courage to post that photo in blogland! That is simply amazing. I know it is not the sexiest thing, or even comfortable for that matter! However, I PROMISE you, you will feel SO much better after wearing it a few nights that you won't care how it looks! My husband used to wear one before he lost a bunch of weight and it TOTALLY changed his life, for the better. I truly believe it SAVED his life. So, hang in there. And know that you are a brave, brave soul and we are extremely proud of you!

I'm stopping by from SITS! I just wanted to share a bit of comment love.♥ I'm really glad I did!
