That Thing Called Sleep

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.
