better living through technology
I've always been a champion sleeper, but since I started using a sleep mask I took it to the next level [1]. This morning, for example, I don't have anything scheduled. I got up at around 0630 to take care of the dogs and stayed up for about an hour before going back to sleep. I had the window open for a nice breeze and blindfold in place, and woke up about 1045. Go me for a Sunday morning.

[1] I hate this overused and trite expression, but it worked for me in this particular instance.

Amen.

For the first time in 30 years, I have what is more like a normal, regular sleep pattern. I still have trouble GETTING to sleep, but when I do, it's real sleep, and I wake up at pretty regular times.

Of course, your sleep mask really is technology, whereas the one I mean is simply a blindfold (and a snappy title for a post that otherwise would hardly be worth a twitter).

I am told that I sometimes stop breathing while I sleep, but it is rare and not worth treating. I may end up with your kind of mask yet. In the meantime, I have been very pleased to read about your success with it.

I'll be traveling to Vermont tomorrow, so just in case I don't have the chance to say it, happy birthday! Hope it's a good one! :D

I heart my sleep mask and have been using it for over five years now. My favorite for comfort is Brookstone's. Sure, it's $35, but it is super comfy and has little spaces for your eyes so you can still blink and not have your eyelids squished. Also, it's machine-washable.
