That Thing Called Sleep

Burning During Sleepphoto by anna gay

You know, here in D.C. Columbus Day is a bona fide holiday with no work and everything. (I swear, these federal employees even get Thomas Edison’s sister’s birthday off.)

So while I’ll be working today, the blog is taking the day off.

Because I spent Friday up all night burning and burning. And just when I got my feet to calm down enough to go back to sleep, I’d wake up an hour later burning.

Because I woke up repeatedly throughout the night on Saturday with burning feet. And elevating and blasting the fan at them wouldn’t cool them down. There were pockets of sleep and long stretches of fiery pain.

Because I’m tired. And tired of EM.

I’ll be back with something real to say tomorrow. And let’s hope I can sleep through the night again soon.

We are of similar minds with taking a wee bit of time off.

Really hoping that you can get a good sleep. Big hugs, Tracey.

Okay, I am sending ice block cold feet vibes east toward those burning feet of yours. I am sorry about the tough time sleeping and I hope tonight you get a really good sleep. Hang in there.

Yeah… I’m working and it’s extremely depressing because it seems everyone and their mom has the day off. Lame.

Sorry about the lackluster sleeps. I’m wishing you a cool, good night’s rest tonight! :)

I’m a tiny bit bitter that we have classes today… when the metro lines to campus aren’t running. What is that crap about? Hope you’re feeling better. It’s supposed to cool off later this week so hopefully that will help. :)

P.S. I was bitter about working, too. I knew I should’ve been a postal worker!
