Finally 8 hours of sleep.

It was early last night when I fell asleep, but I was so...tired. I didn't fight it. Having 2 bad nights of sleep really does me in anymore. I used to be able to go long stretches without a good night sleep, but not anymore. My body craves a good rest. I think partly it is the arthritis. Having it in my back in several places makes laying down so much more comfortable. Especially with the heating pad on and gone through several cycles. (I have a really nice one that has moist heat and really feels good. It relaxes me and takes away the pain.
I think getting in the pool twice this week also helped me sleep. It energized me for most of the day, but then helped me sleep well at night. Thank goodness for the pool!!
Today is a light day. I am going to the gym and going to get in the pool and the hot tub for awhile. I am not used to the hot tub, so it feels really...hot!! It sure relaxes me.
I see the chiropractor this morning, so a good soak will make that much easier. I adjust easier when I am relaxed. I tend to tighten up when the chiropractor goes to adjust me. He tells me that is normal and most people do it. Well, I am normal at something then!!
Hope everybody has a nice day. It is suppose to be 79 here today. The last 2 days have been in the 70's and really nice. Fall in sure in the air!!
I so welcome the cooler weather. Summer isn't fun with hot flashes...I spent most of it in the air conditioning!! I like summer and walking, but not able to do much of it with hot flashes coming so often.
