Joseph’s New Alarm Clock Has It All

I got another fantastic Christmas present in 2019.  That would be an alarm clock, which is from Sylvania.  I have it on one of my dressers in my bedroom … and I have been using it every day since I got it.  The alarm clock has just about everything in it.  There is a radio in it … and, while you listen to it, you can also set the sleep timer for up to 90 minutes.  You can do it for 10 to 90 minutes, if you wanted to … or you can just turn the radio off manually whenever you get tired of listening to it.  It also has a snooze button on it, but I probably have no plans on using it since I’m an early riser.  There is also a night light on the alarm clock.  I really like this alarm clock … and I hope you guys like it as well.

If you guys want a classy alarm clock like this one, please consider buying yourselves one at a store near you sometime soon.  You may like it as much as I do.

Joseph Recovers From His Oral Surgery

On November 26, 2019, I got two of my upper teeth removed at the oral surgeon’s office in Peters Township, which is in Washington County.  The procedure went very well.  I slept through the surgery.  They put tubes in my nose … and the oxygen went through the tubes.  I also got an IV unit placed inside of my right arm.  They also put certain things on my chest so they could monitor my breathing and my vital signs during my oral surgery.  I fell asleep after my put those things on me and in me.  It took me a while to wake up after the surgery was over.  I don’t even remember leaving the building that the oral surgeon’s office is housed in.  I had some help getting out of that office, though.  I woke up inside of the car after I left the oral surgeon’s office.

After I left the oral surgeon’s office late that morning, I went home and I spent the rest of the day recovering in our two bedrooms.  I started recovering in my bedroom … and, then, about two hours later, I went into another bedroom, where the TV was.  I was able to watch CNN for hours while I was recovering in one of our two bedrooms.  At around 7:00 that evening, I went back into my bedroom … and I stayed in there for the next nine hours or so.  I was back on my feet again the next morning … and, over the next few days, I would start eating more solid foods after taking in mostly liquids just hours after I had my surgery.  I would just eat mainly soft foods at first … and then, I would start eating hard foods again whenever I was able to do so.  I wanted to ease back into them again.  Now, as of today, I’m eating all kinds of foods again.

Of course, I may need false teeth for my upper teeth as early as next year … and I will talk about it in a blog post later this month.

Enjoy your day!

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: Joseph’s Money Jars

I really like to save up my money for some neat things.  I almost always have coins in my wallet … and I sometimes, split up the coins in a rather unique way.  I keep half of my coins in a wallet … and I put the other half of my coins in my money jars.  I can’t tell you exactly how much money I have in the jars, but I can tell you that I have at least 41 cents in my jars.  I have three actual money jars and they can be found on one of my dressers in my bedroom … and I also have a money jar that’s shaped like a bottle.  It can be found near my bedroom door.  The money jars relax me … and they allow me to use them whenever I need to take some of the coins out of my wallet.  This way, I can put them to use.

These are Joseph’s money jars. Joseph has at least 41 cents in all of these money jars. Three of them are actual money jars … and one of those money jars is shaped like a bottle.

Joseph Has A Question For You: Should Joseph use his red car radio someday?

For the past few years, we have owned a red radio … and it’s supposed to resemble a 1957 Chevrolet car.  We haven’t used it in quite some time … and I’m thinking about using it again in the future.

So let me ask you a question about it … should I use the red car radio someday?  I may consider using it one day.  I just don’t know exactly how I will be using it just yet.

I still have the same mattress one year later!

Can you believe it?  It has been one year since I said good-bye to my foam mattress.  That mattress was from Thera-Pedic … and I had slept on it almost every night for several years.  In its final months, it had a lot of stains on it … and it was starting to show its age.  It helped me sleep very well.  If I’m not mistaken, I think I bought the mattress at Boscov’s, which was located at South Hills Village, in the late 2000s.  I had owned the mattress for a few years.

On February 20, 2017, I said good-bye to my Thera-Pedic mattress for the final time. I had been sleeping on it nearly every night for several years. I will miss this mattress a lot.

As you can probably see here, this foam mattress had a lot of stains on it … and I had to say good-bye to it one year ago today.

There would be a huge open space in my bedroom that day.

img_20170220_122433
For several years, my Thera-Pedic mattress was in this spot in my bedroom. My new mattress is now in this same spot!

It wouldn’t stay this way for long.  Later that day, my new mattress, which is from the Original Mattress Factory, filled that open space … and, since then, it has allowed me to get a good night’s sleep almost every night.

Here’s my new mattress. It’s a spring mattress … and I really like it a lot.

One year later, I still like this mattress a lot, even thought it’s a spring mattress.  It’s a very comfortable mattress.  I hope you guys still like it as much as I do.

Joseph has “My Pillow!”

A few weeks ago, I received an exciting Christmas present.  That present is called “My Pillow.”  I had used another pillow for a few weeks before I got My Pillow … and that pillow was actually my “temporary” pillow.

I have been using My Pillow every night since Christmas night … and I really like it a lot.  I will be using it many, many times in the future.  I had seen them advertising it hundreds of times before I bought it.  Well, guess what?  After seeing them advertise it so many times, I caved in and bought one.  Hopefully, you guys can buy one somewhere at some point in the future.

I got “My Pillow” for Christmas a few weeks ago. I really like it. I bought it after I saw them advertising it on television many times. I have used it every night since I got it. I sometimes put a pillowcase on it.

A pillowcase is now on my “temporary” pillow!

Now, this past Friday, I got a new “temporary” pillow.  I was able to put it to good use over the weekend.  It’s a little bit bigger than my current pillow is.  My current pillow is very flat … and, since I’m using my new pillow, I don’t know how I’m gonna use my flat pillow just yet.  My new “temporary” pillow is not so flat … and I’ve been able to sleep fairly well this past weekend.  My new pillow now has a pillowcase on it … and, hopefully, I’ll be able to do that many, many more times in the future.  It was hard for me to get it on there at first, but I was able to get it on there successfully.  After all, I needed a new pillow!

Next time, I will write my 775th blog post down.

Joseph’s new “temporary” pillow

On December 1, 2017, I received a new “temporary” pillow. The pillow that I’ve been using for about two years is getting flat. This pillow is fantastic … and I’m able to sleep on it every night.

Switching mattresses with ease

Now, two days ago, I was able to switch mattresses … and, in a way, I did that with ease.  On Monday morning, I said good-bye to my old foam mattress … and, a few hours later, I said hello to my new spring mattress.  I like my new mattress a lot … and, hopefully, I can keep it for eight more years or so.

Now, in this blog post, I’m gonna show you both my old mattress and my new mattress.  I had talked about the mattresses in a two-part blog post earlier this week … and now, I’d like to include both of those mattresses in one single blog post.

First, let me show you my old foam mattress.

I have had this mattress for only two days now … and I really like it a lot.  It’s very comfortable, to say the least.

Now, as I say hello to my new mattress, I will soon be saying good-bye to my old mattress.  In a way, I have been able to switch mattresses with ease.

Joseph is finally getting a new mattress (Part 2)

Now, yesterday, in the first part of this two-part blog post, I talked about my foam mattress, which left my house yesterday morning for the last time ever.  I had owned the mattress for several years … and the mattress was from Thera-Pedic.  There were a lot of stains on the mattress, so I decided to get rid of it forever.

Yesterday afternoon, I received a new mattress … and, today, in the second part of this blog post, I would like to talk about that mattress.

I was able to use it last night … and I really liked it.  It’s actually a spring mattress, but I hardly felt the springs, which are in the mattress.  I slept fairly well on it … and I didn’t want to leave my mattress this morning, but I had to do just that.

I’d like to show you my new mattress now.  Now, as you can plainly see here, it’s not too much different from my old foam mattress here, but there is a new mattress in my bedroom.
