I went to bed last night at midnight. I drifted in and out of sleep due to restlessness in my legs. My legs just wanted to keep on moving. Around 4 am I gave up on sleeping. From 4 am until 8 am I played my video game. Then I took a shower to be ready for my Peer Support Counselor from the VA. He called a half hour before he came to make sure I was ready. After he called I went outside to wait and walked around my apartment complex. I noticed that when the sun hit my back, I felt as if my back was on fire. I guess some sunburn from swimming and reading in the sun yesterday. I had planned to go swimming, but ditched that plan because of the sunburn. Also I was so worn out when I rested on my bed, I fell asleep for two hours. I woke up refreshed and accomplished three loads of laundry, core exercises and finished my walking minutes inside. This evening I relaxed and watched the Pirates blow another game late, in the 8th inning tonight.

I am hoping for a good night of emoticon tonight. I hope you all have a fun, healthy weekend!

    Oh I hate that restless leg thing. Happens to me sometimes too.

Sorry to hear about the sunburn, I hope it's healing up quickly!

    You may have "restless leg syndrome" (RLS). That affects many people. Maybe follow up with your doctor if it continues. Good thing... staying out of the water with a sunburn. Sun comes through water and can give you a worse sunburn than if you were on "dry land"

Sorry about your Pirates. My Blue Jays are really faltering now. They had led the AL East pretty much all season. But the injury bug hit them hard.

Hope you get some sleep tonight and have a great Saturday, my friend!

    I'm so glad you made up some of that sleep and accomplished a lot after it. And good for you on doing walking inside. It's so hot here, I should follow your example.
A very good weekend to you, too!
