I can't believe I'm sitting at my desk on Monday again...
The weekend went by in a blur... literally...
All thanks to an antihistamine... wow... I really don't do good with drugs.
It started on Friday. Because of the sinus junk, I can't get to sleep. Laying down flat just isn't good for gook laying in your head. It all goes into your throat & pretty much feels like someone is choking you to death. Good times.
|maybe I was actually being choked by the force|
Anyways, I didn't go to bed till late Friday & when I finally did, I was back up at 3:00am ... I ended up going in & drinking an Alka-Seltzer cold tablet....
Side note... I never drink an Alka-Seltzer & not think of my grandmother. She used to have those things sizzling all day long. It was like her daily cocktail.
|Alka Seltzer does have bubbles like champagne afterall|
So I go back to sleep... & am woken up by Bruno nudging me & Ricky walking into the room asking when I was going to get up.... I roll over & look at the clock & was like WHAT THE HEY?!?!? It was 9:43am... almost 10am....
I didn't know what in the world happened. I got up & went to the kitchen to look at that Alka-Seltzer package... yep, it has antihistamines in it.
Now, let me remind you.... a Tylenol PM will literally put me in a coma for a week. I don't tolerate medicine well. Probably because I never take it...
All day Saturday, I seriously felt drugged. It was such a beautiful day & I wanted to enjoy it but I couldn't make myself work out. Instead, I got my book, went outside with the dogs & read for a little bit... until I was about ready to nod off again.
I remember my grandpa always nodding off in random places. That was me this weekend.
I ended up going in on the couch to read some more... to wake up an hour later at Ricky laughing at me again.
We ended up going out to get some dinner & visit his brother in the hospital & I thought I was sludging through mud the whole time... glad to be out though. Glad to see Michael & my sis-inlaws...
|I'm awake... & out...|
Got home for the evening & guess what... couldn't sleep again because of the draining. So guess what I did? Jumped the gun & took another Alka-Seltzer.
What the heck was I thinking?
All morning at church, I felt like I was in a bubble of another dimension. Even laughing my head off with the youth kiddos in small group (& mercy, I laughed so hard, I snorted... the kids will remind me of this for weeks to come) I still felt just 'off'
Ricky & I ran & got some lunch, had to pick some things up at Target & then headed home.
A girl at church had bought some yarn & asked me if I would make her some headbands... well, all I wanted to do was sit on the couch anyways so it was a perfect project to bide my time.
I can knit in a brain fog... this is good to know...
... plus, I was counting down to the Walking Dead being back on... No spoilers, but REALLY?!?!?! Sigh.
& then when it went off, I watched Downton Abby (I dvr'ed Better call Sal... cant wait to watch it)... & then I tried to go to bed.
Nope... nada... draining begins...
I refused to take another Alka-Seltzer knowing I had to go to work in a few hours.
So needless to say, I felt like someone was choking me out in a wrestling match again all night & I got no sleep.
If ever there was a Monday... today is going to be it.
Any suggestions for something to dry me up that won't kick me in the butt?
