I shouldn't have been surprised this morning, when I was watching the Today show, eating my granola (homemade) and drinking my coffee (freshly ground and French press brewed), to see a ResMed CPAP mask.

All this publicity on the study got Managing Editor Theresa and I thinking: Will staving off memory decline and possibly Alzheimer's...

Sleep shenanigans

March 3, 2015Liz Beaulieu, Editor

Before said baby, I was the type of person who went to bed at 9 p.m.—9:30 p.m. the latest. I'd read a few pages of The New Yorker and fall asleep uninterrupted until 6:30 a.m.—maybe 6 a.m. if I was going for a morning run. That's right, I got about nine hours of sleep nearly every night. Enter said baby, and I'm getting six hours...
