I’m tired

I write this today as my new Garmin nüvi 255W charges and I cool down with a tall glass of ice water. I say cool down mostly because of this.

Sure it’s not the 120 they’ve been getting in the deserts of CA or in Vegas, but to be out and about, getting in and out of a car, that’s pretty warm. It doesn’t help that the nights have been quite balmy as well, sticking into the 80s without any noticeable wind. All this heat, I think, is seriously affecting my quality of sleep, or complete lack thereof.

For the last few nights, I distinctly remember waking up more than once per night. Not for very long, but my sleep was still interrupted by something. If I had to guess, it’s probably a combination of my fan, which has a very occasional squeak, and the heat. I do know that it’s driving me sleepy by 6pm at night.

At least I have new stuff to play with. As I mentioned, new GPS unit on the charge. I used it a little today and it seemed to work ok, but that was because it was the new toy, right? They always seem to work right when they still have that new electronics smell. You can watch for a full review of that coming soon.

Assuming, of course, that I can stay awake long enough.
