Happy Birthday Missy!

HBD 2295

Yesterday, we celebrated MISSY’S BIRTHDAY at one of our favorite local restaurants, CALI N TITO’S. Friends came to have dinner with us and to share this amazing CHOCOLATE RAINBOW CAKE made by our friend JO, who is the pastry chef at the HEIRLOOM CAFE, here in Athens, Georgia. We ate a ton of scrumptious Cuban-inspired dishes and barely left just enough room for cake. It was such a great night for eating out and hanging out. Happy Birthday, Missy!

Dork Lifestyle: Sleep Disorder

Dork Lifestyle 52 Sleep Disorder
I have a sleep disorder. My mom has the same thing, too. We both have restless legs. My restless leg syndrome was really bad about ten years ago. It was terrible – I would wake up in the middle of the night with a buggy, painful feeling in my legs. I took yoga, I took medicine, I exercised, I took baths, I slept kneeling, I ate midnight snacks. Some remedies worked better than others, but it is terrible to have your sleep schedule turned upside down. My legs still act up from time to time, but not nearly as awful as they once were. The best things for me are taking walks, baths, and stretching. Over time, I hope the “creepy crawlies” in my legs will be gone forever!
