A few things are making me happy today

I am still employed

I have finished framing the deck and filling the framing with gravel

Twil and I are on a road trip leaving this morning

I heard from one of my dearest friends this morning

I spent $4 on a couple lottery tickets this week and I am wringing the last drops of potential bazillionaire-hood from those 400 pennies

My stepdaughter, M, is happy with a gift I got for her, and I am very happy that she's happy

I have a full, hot, fresh cup of coffee waiting for me, just over there

I leave you now, because, coffee

what sleep app are you using?

I've looked into a number of them but they all seem to be basing conjectures on your breathing and noises.

This is a fitbit which measures pulse and wrist movements.

glatt 10-21-2018 05:14 PM

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.

That's awesome.

Good news!

footfootfoot 10-28-2018 10:45 PM

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

BigV 10-28-2018 10:49 PM

Another question

What do you do with the information?

glatt 10-29-2018 06:45 AM

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. :D

Griff 10-29-2018 01:34 PM

Huzzah!

xoxoxoBruce 10-29-2018 01:36 PM

Yes dear...

Glinda 10-29-2018 01:58 PM

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. :rolleyes:

But thanks Bruce, for the dancing boys! HA!
