Sleep Fail

Last night, the 2nd to last toe on my right foot decided it wanted to cramp up and change positions with my pinkie toe. This caused me great pain and consternation. I held my toe in the correct position for 20 minutes before the cramping stopped. As I stretched out my leg, thinking it was finally over and I could sleep, Celeste plopped her skinny-ass head onto my foot. The spasm alone made me squeal in pain.

My squeal caused Celeste to rocket off the bed and stand at attention. It frightened Mina who went belly up on my lap, tail thwacking hard against the bed. Celeste was certain Mina's tail thwacking was actually an intruder scaling the wall to break in, so she barked ferociously at the window.

I told them to both shut up and they did not. I fell asleep in a fetal position, hand clutched reflexively around my foot, with a muttskie grumbling at the window and a pit bull draped over my side. 

These events make me curse and adore my dogs.

Ugh, I get foot cramps like that all the time. I hate them. I used to have to freeze in place until they passed. My mother-in-law told me that when she gets foot cramps like that she takes her big toe and pulls it forward while pushing all the rest of her toes back or vice versa. This sometimes helps to relieve the pain until it passes. The doctor told me when I get foot or leg cramps to point my heel down and push my toes up. Usually when I feel cramps coming on, this helps me stave them off. Anywhoo I dunno how often you get those kinds of cramps but maybe one of those things can help you in the future so I offer them to you :) Take care and I hope you sleep more better tonight!
