FYI fitbits are pricy, but there are a number of clones on aliexpress for a reasonable price.

You had at least seven REM periods when that many or more dreams could have graced your night.
I love to dream and the dreams I dream. I have been working on lucid dreaming for years, with cycles of varying success.
Most recently (in my 70's) I have been enjoying what I call epics (a 'la Demille and Homer). They can be scary or funny, but they are always long and complicated and great.

Also making me happy is that after about 10 weeks, my hip replacement seems to be taking hold. Healing makes me happy.

But how does it really know you are in REM sleep? it's just monitoring heart rate and movement and sound.

What do you do with the information?

I don't know how accurate the report is. When I am clearly awake and up and moving around and have a memory of that, I have looked at the report later and they got it right. However there have been times where I have woken early and just stayed as still as possible trying to fall back asleep again, and the fitbit thought I was asleep.

So it gets things wrong sometimes.

I've found that looking at the data sometimes gets me to change my behavior to improve my habits. Not so much with sleep, although I did go to bed early that one time, it's more with exercise. I make an effort to get my steps in, and if I really haven't walked much in a day, I'll often take a walk after dinner. My paying attention to my fitbit encourages me to do that.

I approve.

I just submitted the final chapter of the book I've been editing/proofing since forever.

Hallelujah! Bring on the dancing boys.

Well that respite didn't take long. They just asked if I was interested in proofing another book (100 pages) with a crazy turnaround time.

Ah well, no rest for the wicked.

But thanks Bruce, for the dancing boys! HA!

By the end of October.







That line is going in the book, btw.

So, the good news is, I've apparently impressed them with my analitude (and speedy response) regarding the written word and its associated punctuation and final presentation. They have multiple additional jobs for me, if I want them and have the time.

*sigh*

I just got my life back after two long months, dammit!

And this evening, I got a call from my longtime friend/client/former employer (the guy who owns a town in MT) who is desperate for my help.

Goddammit.














I am valued, needed, and in demand (and I can continue paying the bills). *bliss*

I told my friend that he'd better fucking take his usual winter vacation in Cabo and invite me along.
