Reflux or allergies: If you are not home between these times... I would strongly think you might have allergies that are causing your symptoms. If there are pets in the house... That may be what is causing this. Another condition that can cause a nightly/ early morning cough is acid reflux. See your local ENT for further evaluation.

End of day: Blood pressure tends to be higher after stress exposure - if you spent a day exercising and relaxing, your BP may be lower - of if taken at the end of a stressful day it will probably be higher. Ideal BP is 115/70-75. Get yourself a home BP cuff if you have a problem - i would recommend the traditional type as electronic devices are not very accurate.If you have high BP in am, you should see md.

I didn't see Dr. Sands' answer before I answered, but I agree completely with him as well.
