Sleep? Who needs it? Well, I guess we all do. I have a SmartWatch, generic brand, bought it on Wish.com and it isn’t particularly smart. Anyway, I discovered that it does have a sleep monitoring app on it, so I decided to turn that on last night and wear it while I slept.
I went to bed at 9pm and quickly fell asleep. When I woke up around 2am, it said I slept 4:53 and only 17 minutes of deep sleep. That doesn’t sound good.
When I wake up, in the middle of the night, I don’t feel tired. I am able to make my way through the day without any issues, really don’t feel tired until the evening. I try to stay awake until 9pm or so, otherwise, I will typically wake up 5 hours after going to sleep. The other night I went to bed just after 7:30, slept until just before 1am. That makes for a long day. When I do wake up, it is one of those feelings that I am done with sleeping so there is no sense in trying to go back to sleep. So, I get up. I let the dogs out and I feed them, really early. They now eat every 12 hours, I think they like it – they both eat all their food when it is put out. Good dogs.
I’ve been going through these cycles for years. Typically, it happens during the summer and will normally last for 3-4 months, then I am able to sleep again, 8-9 hours. Sometimes, I need to drag myself out of bed in the morning. Don’t know why, it has never really bothered me so I just accept it. Not sure why it adjusted this year, when I slept this past summer, I thought it was going to skip over me this year – no such luck.
It is the weekend. I have a few things planned, but it will still be pretty relaxing. Late breakfast today and a trip to the dump to get rid of some stuff from the old place that I don’t want/need and can’t sell. I have someone coming over to buy a portable air conditioner that I am selling. It is Calgary, I have never found a need for AC here, there might be a few nights in the middle of July that it is slightly uncomfortable, but that’s it. So, $60 in my pocket will be good – it will pay for that breakfast, and then some.
I am also selling my Nexus 6 smartphone. I purchase the new Pixel XL so I need to sell the old phone. I have it listed on Kijiji for $250 and am not willing to negotiate too much on price. Someone offered $120, I didn’t even reply. Come on. Someone else offered $210 which isn’t too bad, but they wanted me to deliver it. Well, I have had too many people on Kijiji back out and what not so I don’t tend to trust people. He/she was only 15 minutes away, but I didn’t want to drive 15 minutes and then have them change their mind or offer less money. Nope, you want the phone, you come to me then if you change your mind, it didn’t cost me any time.
The Pixel XL is a pretty good phone. It is slightly smaller than the Nexus 6, not as wide, perhaps a little thinner. I ordered a case for it from BestBuy, but it has not yet arrived. I would have picked it up in the store, but it was available online only, so I wait. It should arrive next week.
Anyway, nothing planned on Sunday, not yet anyway. I will take it as it comes. I do need and purchase a few groceries, doesn’t that sound exciting?
Enjoy your weekend.
