February 20, 2008



My husband thought 6:00 AM was a good time to unload the dishwasher. Loudly. Guess I shouldn't complain, if it's getting done. But 6:00?

There's nothing like a charley horse to interrupt a good night of sleep...


Growing up, My Dad used to get horrible Charley Horses. I remember waking up in the middle of the night to his excruciating screams... as I got older I was taught to massage them down from the ball they form. It was once in a great while but they were just painful to even look at. I have only had it happen twice in my life and it truly hurts.


maybe in your letter to your body you should of included a pss... :)


A little secret for cramps in the calf. Pinch your upper lip, right at the filtrum. (that weird spot from your nose to the center of your mouth.) Pinch it hard for a count of 10. Your cramp often goes away. It's a acupressure thing.
(see what I learn watching TV?)


Oh my gosh! That had to totally freak you out!

Stopping by from Jenny on the Spot, nice to meet you.


Hey! I was awake too early Friday morning, too, due to a charley horse. It was my first in a very long time and it hurt like hell. Very frustrating to be on vacation, with my sleeping four year old in the next bed and to be wide awake...
