Sleep

Tuesday night’s sleep was kinda awful. My sleep watch app said that I was in “restful sleep” for only half of the time. When I woke up it was like I hadn’t slept at all. It was a bad night.

Last night I went to bed early and then broke one of my quarantine rules.

The rule is, every work day I will be out of bed, showered, and ready to start my work day at the same time I would need to be ready if I had to make the long drive to the office. The goal started out at 7:30. It’s kind of floated up to 7:40 more recently. Today, I was asleep until almost 7:00. Way, way later than normal. Sleep watch said I was asleep for 8:20, and in restful sleep for six hours.

Over eight hours of sleep. It’s amazing. I didn’t think that was possible here in the 21st century. The water tank on my CPAP machine was full when I went to sleep and it was almost bone dry when I woke up. That’s a lot of CPAP run time!

All day yesterday I felt run down and beat up and a little sick. Today I feel a ton better, but my nose is still a little stuffy. It doesn’t feel like allergies. It also doesn’t fit any of the COVID-19 symptoms, so don’t even go there. I think a little bad sleep left me open to a little spring head cold.

Yippee.

Early to bed again tonight? I hope so. It’s helping so far.
