I Think I Angered My Beautyrest Sleeptracker Monitor

Recently, I posted about the Beautyrest® Sleeptracker® monitor. It is a product I received to review and promote. I was compensated. I use it every night to monitor my sleep. Today was my first time using it while I slept for the day while I worked overnights. I’m pretty sure that my Sleeptracker is mad at how pitiful my sleep was today. I am not sure exactly when I drifted off to sleep because…

Okay, this was how the day went. I got home form work and stopped at my parent’s house to pick up my Dad’s truck. I was picking up some rain barrels today at 9 am. I watched an episode of Transformers Robots in Disguise (Season 3 just started) and fell asleep while watching. I got up in time to get over to the recycling center to get the rain barrels and was back by 9:15. That should have given me a great day of sleep. The problem is that I didn’t go right to sleep. I read part of the comic book that I got from the Marvel Collector Corps box that I unboxed yesterday. That usually gets me to sleep. It didn’t. Then I reached for my Nintendo Switch. Link and I set off through Hyrule to find shrines and side quests and much more. When I am super tired and I play video games I tend to fall asleep with them on my face or millimeters from it. Not this time. I must have powered through to stay awake and continue playing. I didn’t even look at the time when I finally stopped. Then I rolled over and went to sleep.

I woke up at 3:29 and looked at the results of the Sleeptracker monitor. I had slept for 1 hour. One single hour. I apparently was awake for at least 2 hours before I opened my eyes at 3:29.

I’m completely out of practice for weekend sleeping. No one was home and I didn’t put in my earplugs. I played too long on the video game and I didn’t get to sleep immediately upon returning home. I’m thinking that tomorrow’s sleep tracker screen can’t look any worse.

On the way to work I decided that I wanted to have ice cream for dinner and I stopped in to Summer Scoops. They have some good soft serve ice cream. Well, on Saturdays between 4 and 6 they have a super deal where you get two hot dogs, chips and a drink plus an ice cream. Well, I couldn’t pass that up for under $5. What a deal.

So, I may not have slept much today but some ice cream certainly put me in a better mood.

Ice Cream for Dinner

Photo-A-Day #3378

Some night’s it is just so hot that you don’t want to cook anything. On those nights, on those rare occasions we’ve been known to have ice cream for dinner. On those night’s it is best just to forget about calorie count and enjoy something to help cool off.

And cooling off is what we needed today. It was hot, so hot. I finally got to the gutters. Our gutters haven’t been cleaned since I did it last, over two years ago. The crap that has come off the tree and landed on the little roof by the back porch has made a definite fertile compost because I had these growing in the gutters.
